You join 'Corporations' which can then be in alliances, i'll be joining the alliance i'm already in and everyone is free to join that (could be handy as there are some damn good FPS players from what I hear). There will be a mode where you can just jump into a battle, but otherwise your 'corp' will be hired by EVE players to do battle for them for the resources on a planet, there will be, at some point, the ability for eve players to perform an orbital strike from space (good job i can have my laptop in reach when playing ps3).
The most difficult thing to get your head around at the start will be how to 'fit' your character. it's supposed to be like on eve, but with a little guidance from players who play eve (me) you'll be ok. I'll be happy to fund you all at the beginning too, if i can at launch. There will be a period where there isn't full integration to eve, because they don't want to mess up the economy (which is a huge part of eve).
I hope the voice chat will be good, on PC i've used eve's voice chat with 100 players on it flying with me at the same time, the only issue was 100 people talking at the same time (EVEs server was one of the 20 biggest and most powerful in the world, not just games, but ALL servers). If not, the group i play with have their own teamspeak 3 server, and you don't get better voice chat than TS (free also).
Dan, there is always a trial offer available from me, I can also get you in with the guys I play with, which is one hell of a laugh.
The learning curve of eve is commonly depicted by this so be warned
Edit: I have been told that the maps are randomly generated, so you won't get owned by people who know the maps better than you (which always ***** me off)

Raver, are you being paid by the makers of eve to promote their game on what is an F1 forum?
I do like it how this forum becomes anything but F1 chatter these days. If codemasters hadn't botched up the game in the last patch that wouldn't be the case... take note codies!! Sort out the mic issue, its doing our heads in!!
