The game is purely PvP. Though the game engine and tech support PvE elements, we are focusing on the PvP elements in the first release and will be exploring the PvE aspects post-release.
Both sides fight on planets and in space for the control of various territories. The tide and balance of war are both dynamic, fluent and happen in real-time
Or if you are good at flying, you can be that guy who grabs a transport gunship, blazes into a hot zone behind enemy lines and either extracts or drop launches your team. Nothing screams “I’m gonna live!!” like the sight of a heavy gunship coming in with automated turret guns blazing and leaving carnage and dead bodies everywhere.
Or you can just stay on the station and defend it from within because, trust me, given the ease with which players can move between environments, the station is a hot bed of intense action - and may never ever have to step foot on the planet if you don’t want to.
Or you can just grab a super (can fly on planets and in space) fighter, get into space and engage in space combat alongside your friends as you take on other enemy fighters and stations.
There are several ways that you can play the game.

If you follow the story of Eve, you will understand how and why they went their own way and thus are comfortable with a 300K player subscription game. My games in general, eclipse that number in sales.
