Remembering Fictional History and Virtual War in EVE Online

The massively multiplayer game EVE Online relies on a complex fictional history to create the sense of a narratively cohesive universe. To support this history, EVE features sites that reflect the game’s emphasis on violence and war. Dark tourism in EVE Online allows players to explore these sites and connect to an uncertain collective history. In an unfamiliar virtual world, tourism is a familiar way to engage with a fluid, fictional past.
