A Newbie's Guide To EVE Online
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

A new article from Macworld's Peter Cohen examines the recently released online MMORPG, EVE Online. The feature gives new players an idea of what they can expect from the open ended sci-fi universe of EVE; exploring a variety of topics including the history of the universe, character creation, and the game's rich economy.

EVE Online at its simplest is a space trading, exploration, and combat game, although calling it so really only scratches the most superficial aspect of what EVE is all about. The game possesses a huge backstory that explains the different “races” in the game — five different factions of the human race that have colonized a galaxy far beyond the Milky Way and have long since fallen out of touch with their origin homeworld.

These races are the Amarr Empire, the Caldari State, the Gallente Federation, the Jovian Empire and the Minmatar Republic. Of those, only four are actually playable within the game (the Jovians, for now, remain an elusive and mysterious bunch that want nothing to do with other humans in their shared section of space).
