If you don't know what EVE Online is, then I think a lot would explain to you that it is kind of hard to explain. Some may say "spreadsheets in space" or something along the lines of a "tear generator". Either way, CCP wants you to get an idea as to what it is. With Rhea coming out on 12.09.2014, the free expansion to the game, CCP wanted to do a little something fun.
Capturing the raw essence of a game as open-ended and meaningful as EVE Online, the varied experiences and ambitions of its players, and what it “feels like” to play is no easy task.
This past September we issued a game-wide call to collect the EVE Online player community’s most memorable moments from in-game voice communication. Voice communication is an integral part of the fabric of the game and its history, from fleets to diplomacy to just hanging out.
Our players responded overwhelmingly, and from their audio submissions CCP’s award-winning cinematics team created a trailer to portray the visceral gameplay experiences and real emotions of the recordings. This trailer concentrates less on EVE itself and more on the people who have made it live and breathe since 2003—the players.
We are 11+ years into a gaming universe Killscreen Daily called “the game that science fiction warned us about,” and now is the perfect time to focus on those who create the game itself every day by battling, building, and being with each other.
Moments ago we debuted the trailer for hundreds of players at EVE Down Under in Sydney, one of many EVE player-gatherings held each year. It only seemed fitting members of our community should get the first glimpse.
