At the beginning of the game, the player takes control of a single shuttle along with a few credits at their disposal and may proceed in whichever direction they would like. The main gameplay attraction comes from exploring and learning more about the universe in which EV takes place and, if the player so desires, engaging in space combat; either by siding with one of the different factions which are in conflict with each other or by simply staying neutral throughout the game and working for one's self.
By landing on the different planets available in most systems, the player can find work through shipping or trading, upgrade or buy new ships, and obtain story-based missions.
The main plot in EV revolves around a dispute between two rival groups, the "Confederation" and the "Rebellion". Depending on the player's actions throughout the game, the two factions may or may not be affected at all. It is completely up to the player as to whether or not to assist either of them.
