First MMO hits Steam

CCP's space MMO Eve Online has become the first massively multiplayer online game to appear on Steam.

Valve and CCP are celebrating the occasion by offering a free 21-day trial of the game, and slashing a whopping $5 off the first month of subscription if you sign up for action.

Eve Online hit the headlines last December when it emerged that a major update for the game broke Windows XP. Whoops.

For anyone unfamiliar with the game, it offers the chance to dive into space-based combat and trade waters.
