Player vs Environment, commonly referred to as PvE by most online games and gamers, is the player-controlled character (you) competing against the game world and its computer-controlled denizens, as opposed to Player vs Player. To the PvE focused player the primary challenge comes from tough mobs like instance bosses rather than other player characters.

Additional notes:

  • Player vs. Environment is the dominant form of MMORPG game.
  • Also (incorrectly) known as "Player vs. Everything/Everyone".
  • In some online games PvE is known as Player versus Monster (PvM for short).
