EVE: The Second Decade Collector’s Edition is available – Lab coat man unboxes24 Oct 2013
This special edition is ideal for super-fans as it commemorates a decade of EVE Online with unique items and other bits and bobs that should have any EVE fan grinning from ear to ear. If you’re new to the EVE then it may also be worth a look as it’s packed with everything you’d need including:
- “Rifter” USB hub, a four-port USB hub modeled on the iconic EVE Online ship.
- Into the Second Decade, a 190-page, richly illustrated, hardcover book commemorating the first 10 years of the EVE Universe. Into the Second Decade details the initial release of EVE Online and chronicles its growth through the game’s 20 free expansions, the community events that helped define the experience, and the launch of DUST 514. Also included are anecdotes and thoughts from famous EVE players.
- The Danger Game board game, an English-language adaptation of the popular Icelandic board game. Created by a fledgling CCP in 1998, The Danger Game (Icelandic: Hættuspil) helped fund the initial development of the original EVE Online release.
- EVE Symphony CD, a live performance of the signature EVE soundtrack by the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra, recorded in Reykjavik during EVE Fanfest 2013.
There is more however, the box set comes with a mystery CCP code which brings “exclusive benefits related to current and yet to be revealed CCP products”. Not all of these have been revealed but a few pieces have such as…

And not wanting to sound like a TV infomercial, but I will anyway, there’s still more with in-game items…
- The “Golden Pod,” an exclusive skin for the iconic capsule (EVE Online).
- A “Gnosis” Blueprint, a five-run blueprint of the 10th anniversary Gnosis, the Society of Conscious Thought battlecruiser (EVE Online).

How much does all this cost. Wait for it! It’s a hefty $149.99/149.99 Euros. You will need to want it bad to shell that out.
Now it’s time to get weird and watch a guy in a lab coat unbox this bastard.
