EVE Online is a stunning game; one of the very rare subscription MMO's still going successfully, and with free updates on a 6 month schedule.

As part of the ongoing updates (which have been going for a decade now!) the art and base systems have improved, so CCP have recently upped the EVE Online System Requirements...

EVE Online Minimum System Requirements

OS: Windows XP SP2

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E4400 2.0GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+

RAM: 1GB System Memory

GPU: GeForce 8600 GTS or ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT

DX: DirectX 9

HDD: 20 GB Free Hard Drive Space

EVE Online Recommended System Requirements

OS: Windows 7 64bit

CPU: Intel Core i7-920 2.67GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 965

RAM: 4GB System Memory

GPU RAM: 1GB Graphics Memory

GPU: GeForce GTX 560 or ATI Radeon HD 6790

DX: DirectX 11

 

The recommended's do look a little high, but as defined by CCP, this is the recommended for max settings - remembering of course that not only are you rendering your own ship, but possibly up to 3000 others in a single fight.

EVE Online has taken a turn for the better in recent years, following the Jita Riots. CCP has made huge leaps and bounds in making all of the ships in the game useful, generating massive wars due to mineral rebalances, and adding new gameplay mechanics, as well as making the game look pretty. At least, until they try and get rid of the Mammoth hull.

EVE Online is free to try for 14 days, and the next update (still unnamed) is due this winter. Have you guys ever tried to get into the game? There's been massive improvements to the new player experience, so it might be time to give the world's largest single shard space sim a go! Tell us your thoughts on EVE below.

There are various payment options run through official third party suppliers if I recall, and you can after a while pay for your subscription with in game currency, if you have the time/effort needed.
