Featuring detailed images of twenty-eight of the most iconic ships in EVE Online, this beautifully illustrated guide offers an unprecedented look into frigates from each faction with intricate cutaways and complex lore. Dark Horse Books is proud to partner with CCP Games to present Frigates of EVE Online: The Cross Sections!
If I had to guess, my fascination with things like cross sections or blueprints probably came from The Way Things Work. I could just sit and read all the details about layers and tech specs of robots, ships and others for hours. While the game is foreign to me, Frigates of EVE Online: The Cross Sections appeals to that interest.
The Frigates of EVE Online: The Cross Sections book is both simple and complicated at the same time. Basically put, it’s a super EVE Online fans ultimate guide to the frigates within the game. When you go through it though and see the amount of detail, it is a complex and massive amount of data to view. From all the specs on the ships, to usage and variation info, and major component highlights, it’s all covered.
Along with all the written data to sift through, you’re naturally going to get some great visuals. While the art is pretty much limited to just space vessels, they’re still neat to look at. And again, as someone who doesn’t mind things like this, it was fun flipping through them.
Not being familiar whatsoever with EVE Online, I was worried I’d get nothing out of this. Although I didn’t as much as someone who does know the game, it still wasn’t a bad read. In the end, I’d guess only hardcore fans or maybe those looking for good ref will feel the need to buy this.
