    They are making the right way. I hope it pans out into a good game. Looks great and the tech they are using is awesome.

    No.

    So far there's been no evidence of combat or PVP while CCP built EVE from the ground up to support both from the get go.

    Appears to be more of a crafting simulation a la EQ Next.

    Precisely.

    The best way I can describe this game is like a massively Multiplayer version of Empyrean: Galactic survival...If youve ever played on one of the mega servers anyhow.

    Could someone explain how to pvp will work?

    Emergent gameplay: economy, trade, territories, politics and warfare are all player-driven. Both PvP and non-PvP will be possible.
    EDIT: oh found this, is it still accurate?

    It's pretty well explained there. Exploring, going to new places, finding a new home among the stars,.... Should be hard and dangerous. PvP is an essential part there because it's a "civilization" game.

    If you just want to be safe 100% at all times then there is already a possibility. Live in the ASA around the ark. You can be there all the time and even mine all basic resources. So you can build all the basic stuff right there, 100% safe.

    But rare resources and the "good stuff" will be ofc far away from the safezones to force ppl to Go outside. It doesn't make any sense to give players everything without risk.

    So when you want those rare resources you have to Go there.
    And yes, that's a PvP zone. That makes sure ppl band together, collaborate and help each other.

    Or, If you don't want to Go there, then wait for ppl until they trade those resources with you. Might be more expensive, but will happen

    Update. My brother who is not into MMO's at all just bought the game and got some extra keys and gifted me with one. So I am guess I am going to check out the game after all. Hopefully there is a super strict NDA. I haven't signed up yet so I don't know if I just broke a code.

    Edit: To be clear he bought 2 $60 packs. One using my email and one using his. So that was nice of him

    Words.  So far we have seen no evidence of any sort of combat mechanics, PVE or PVP.

    Now they could be developing some on a super secret environment which no one has seen or admitted to seeing,  but I'm doubtful considering how much they enjoy showing everyone their building and environments.

    If not, IMO combat is a feature one doesn't bolt on as an afterthought, but hey, I'm only part French so what do I know?

    I expect there will be some combat as that was one of the main features in the kickstarter  curious if that has changed is all.

    Guess it's still too early to know for sure.
