EVE Online is a free-to-play sci-fi MMO available on Steam for PC and Mac that is set in a science-fiction based, persistent universe. Players take the role of spaceship pilots seeking fame, fortune, and adventure in a huge, complex, exciting, and sometimes hostile galaxy. When EVE was released in May 2003, about half of these systems were available for exploration, enabling players to more easily establish "hot spots" - centralized locations for trade, commerce and combat â€“ based on their activities. As the population in EVE grows, more systems are made available to avoid overcrowding.
