EVE Online News – Chatting â

We had the chance to sit down with EVE Online creative director Torfi Frans Olafsson and art director Borkur Eiriksson during this year’s New York Comic Con to discuss new initiatives on the EVE Online front, including EVE: True Stories and EVE: Source.

CCP Games is looking to  highlight and celebrate that quality of EVE Online in a new project called EVE: True Stories. True Stories is an upcoming four-part comic series that dramatizes one of most well-known stories in the EVE universe: the destruction of the Band of Brothers alliance.

EVE Online News – Winter Expansion Named

During today's live cast, the EVE Online team announced the name of the annual winter expansion. Called "Rubicon", the expansion will release on November 19th and will bring some brand new, interesting features into the game.

Rubicon represents the defining moment when the scales of intergalactic power will shift irrevocably to players, the immortal capsuleers. It expands the unmatched autonomy that EVE’s pilots have over their massive game universe at the expense of its four main factions and gives them a greater arsenal with which to build up and tear down the alliances within.

In EVE Online: Rubicon, empowered players wage guerilla-style warfare against their opponents, raid their space and erode industrial power from deep behind enemy lines. Focused on individual and small fleet activity, new quick-strike options offer a powerful war tactic and a fresh style of victory in EVE’s “sandbox” universe.

This November will also see a new set of mobile, player-owned structures created to support action outside of the safety of the hangar. Meant for both solo and group use, they accentuate and diversify gameplay for pilots seeking to find their homes amongst the stars.

Rubicon continues where Odyssey left off with new exploration content and a versatile new line of faction ships that are perfect for navigating and infiltrating the nearly 8,000 solar systems of the EVE Universe. In addition, the Marauder, Electronic Attack Frigate, Interceptor and Interdictor class hulls head back to the shipyards for re-engineering amongst other balancing changes. New certificate and ship identification systems will help novice players ease into one of the world’s most indisputably deep games and give veteran players a greater sense of what to accomplish next.
