EVE Online's "This is EVE" trailer uses player voice comms to capture the MMO

EVE Online "This is EVE"

A couple of months ago, CCP put out a call to EVE Online players, asking them to submit voice comms for a secret project. At the end of the keynote at EVE Down Under in Sydney, CCP revealed how they’d used the player’s voices and experiences. 

EVE Online is a bit hard to describe, particularly in a trailer, but this is why CCP wanted the voice comms of fleets and players - to create a new trailer that shows off EVE in a way that professional voice overs or flashy cinematics alone can’t down. The end result is “This is EVE”, and you can direct your eyes towards it below. 

There’s a spot of swearing, so if you’re at work, you can watch the censored version.

Have you lovely lot got any trailer-worthy EVE Online stories?

EVE's next content update, Rhea, promises to be an interesting one, even including an opt-in beta for keyboard controls. It's due out on December 9th.

CCP always were good at making trailers. Been a few years since I played last. I must admit that tempted me to go back a little bit.

This is brilliant. I've always liked Eve, but the sheer complexity of the game (and the fact I had no friends who played it) made me put it off.

Seeing this trailer just makes me want to pick it up again!

Yup. Plus there's no direction at all.

Sometimes that's a good thing. I had a blast with it so long as I kept setting myself new goals.

Eventually though I reached a point where I didn't know what to do with myself anymore. I had bad luck with corporations (EVE guilds) so I eventually became more of a loner mining on my own and then trading my goods in whatever system (within reasonable range) I could get the best prices.

So to get there I always had a next goal in mind. Get the next biggest mining vessel, next best cargo ship to cut down the amount of trips I have to take to sell my stuff, become friendly with my home station's NPC corporation so they take a smaller cut from refinery fees, etc.

Like I said, once I reached my last goal I didn't know where to set the new one and eventually lost interest.

I'm always tempted to go back though.
