Eve Online's amazing new trailer focuses on the players and their stories

Eve Online is, at its heart, a sandbox. It's a completely open world, and in fact the game often spills out into the real world as players try to work angles between player-created corporations and organizations. To show off that sense of dramatic, player-driven content CCP Games sent out a call for samples of in-game voice chat.

The company received a large number of submissions, and went through the best, or at least most interesting snippets and combined them with work from the team's cinematics department to create a trailer that tries to explain what EVE Online feels like to play.

The trailer is fascinating. It's partially cinematic, partially overwhelming and with a good dose of humor. Much like the game itself.
