Warning: Do not buy this game on Steam.
Buy it from the officail website: http://www.eveonline.com/
The game itself is amazing, but the way it is integrated into steam may result in you getting screwed over with no support from Valve.
I purchased this game which came with a free month. Then I bought an extra three month subscription. Everything played fine until three months in when I went to play Eve and the game had uninstalled itself. I tried redownloading it and it said I couldn't do to my subscription not being up to date. I emailed Valve about the issue and their response was that they only handle billing and to email Eve Online for support. I emailed Eve, and they responded that my account is still active for 1 month and that I should be able to play. I tried playing from the official Eve Online client but it wouldn't allow me to log in from my steam account. I emailed valve again explaining the situation and forwarding them Eve Onlines support email. I then waited a couple days for them to respond only for them to come back with a canned response:
"We apologize for the delay.

No solution was ever reached and I lost the time I paid for. My account cannot be recovered because its associated with steam and not the official client. This is hands down the worst experience I have had on steam and the last time I use steam to buy any subscription time for a game.
