EVE Online News – Summer Expansion, Odyssey, Coming June 4th

CCP Games has announced that the nineteenth expansion for EVE Online will be released on June 4th. Called "Odyssey", the expansion will bring an overhauled scanning mechanic, a refreshed user interface and new rewards for finding and interacting with sites hidden in space. 

Universe-wide resource redistribution and ship rebalancing will shake up the entire EVE metagame across social, economic, military and political levels, leading to new types of conflicts, fresh strategies and shifting allegiances amongst EVE’s player alliances. EVE Online: Odyssey will also debut new ships, star base improvements, graphics updates and a few surprises to be unveiled in the future.

EVE Online News – Battle for Caldari Prime Detailed

EVE Online and DUST 514 players are getting ready for an epic cross platform, cross game event called the Battle for Caldari Prime. The event is slated to provide lore behind the melding of the two games as well as 'unscripted elements' that will draw players in to make dynamic changes.

 As a showcase to the level of involvement and influence players of both games have in the EVE universe, we have been hosting a series of in-game events that explain the arrival of the DUST mercenaries and weave their background into the EVE story. The events to date have been relatively contained. They‘ve involved both DUST 514 and EVE Online players, but they‘ve been more focused towards the core community of EVE lore afficionados. These events have however all been building towards something.

That something is happening now.
