As anyone who's ever tried to use EVE Online
's item database knows, it's woefully out of date. Given the complexity of EVE
, and the fact that the collective knowledge of the players is a resource unto itself, the developers announced they would create a sort of Wikipedia for EVE
.This player resource, dubbed the "EVElopedia", would also be available via EVE Online
's in-game web browser, as confirmed in July
. Indeed, CCP Games
is putting more emphasis on making EVE
into a game that's better integrated with the web
and social networking in general.
What we didn't know, however, was when this would actually start to happen. At least, not until today. EVE
developer "CCP VonSometime" announced this afternoon
that a beta version of the EVElopedia is live
, and already has over 6000 pages of content. The official EVE
wiki is still in its infancy, but already it's looking to be a useful resource that EVE
players didn't have before (beyond combing the forums.) Have a look at the EVElopedia
and see for yourself. Or, in the words of CCP VonSometime, "Go forth, explore, and grow the EVE universe. Your community awaits it."
