There's Now A Real-Life Monument To EVE Online Players

Earlier this year, CCP Games announced that it would be building a monument to the players of EVE Online, to celebrate 10 years since the release of the game. Well, today it's finally done.

The monument was announced earlier this year, and is being revealed today, the day before EVE Fanfest. Redditor Thorshamar has posted a few pictures of the monument, which has the names of every EVE player who was active on March 1st, 2014 engraved on its surface.

In addition to all active EVE players, the monument will also include the names of EVE players who have died in real life, including the well-known player Sean Smith a.k.a. "Vile Rat", who was killed in the attack on Benghazi.

The monument also includes an app that lets you find a particular name amongst the thousands engraved there, and a time capsule buried underneath. The time capsule contains a laptop with messages from EVE players, and will be opened 25 years from it's placement, on 6 May 2039.

If you're an EVE player, you can try and zoom in on the pictures below and find your name. Of course, this is only one section of the statue, and apparently the names aren't in alphabetical order.

    oh wow, this is impressive
    where abouts is it located?

      Seems like a pretty important part of the story to miss but then this is Kotaku...
      Anyway for those interested it's in Reykjavik, Iceland.

        ah cheers,
        Not exactly a trip down the road for most of us
        I'd still be keen to check this out IRL one day

    kudos to the people that have made this. Its great to see people being recognized for their efforts in keeping subscription fee games alive. I feel that they do their best to keep the company alive no matter what.

    Woo! Now I can finally cancel my subscription!

    I'm only sort of joking - I've hardly touched the game in months, but I'm still paying for it.
    It's something I might go back to, which is why I haven't cancelled yet.
