CCP has announced that its EVE Online MMO will be made available through Valve's content delivery platform, Steam. Concurrent with the launch, EVE Online will offer a 21-day free trial period for all Steam users, with a discount for those who join. EVE Online, set in a futuristic space world, recently claimed some 200,000 players, all of them residing on the same single-shard server system. Its most recent update introduced significant graphical upgrades. Valve business development director Jason Holtman says that EVE is the first MMO to become available through steam. "The team at CCP continues to expand EVE's universe and gameplay for the legions logging in to play each month, just as we continue to expand Steam's consumer and developer features," he said. CCP VP of sales Magnus Bergsson commented, "We are immensely excited and honored that EVE Online will be the first MMO on Steam. Steam has been the leading online distribution platform for a long time and home to some of the most dedicated gamers around, so we couldn´t think of a better fit for EVE Online."
