EVE Online Records 45,000 Simultaneous Players

Developer CCP today announced that its spaceship MMO EVE Online recently reached a peak of 45,000 concurrent players. nope The impressive number tops the previous record of 35,000 simultaneous users.

Unlike most MMOs, EVE Online is operated as a single instance, allowing every player to communicate and meet up within the massive universe of New Eden.

The game has been a technical challenge to maintain, with users often testing the limits of CCP's technology by swarming single systems en masse.
