CCP will be bringing down Tranquility Tuesday at 02:00 UTC to begin deployment of the new EVE Online expansion, The Empyrean Age.
While we are all considering what this will mean to the game and how we play, we should all be doing that one pre-patch requirement.
We should all be setting a nice long skill to train. Something in the 4-6 day range would be good.
Not that I am knocking CCP here, but the few days after a patch often show up some issues that only occur on the live server, so access to get in and change skills can be spotty.
Now I need to get a couple of frigates close to the new contested areas. As always with EVE, you do not commit what you cannot afford to lose, because when you lose a fight, you lose all you have on you. Frigates I can afford to lose.
New stuff coming soon to EVE Online! Sooner than I thought.
EVE Online: Empyrean Age is slated for a June 10th release. The cold war that has existed between our four races for a hundred years is becoming very hot. It is now time for you to pick a side; some will fight for glory, others for personal gain. All will fight to win!
To find out more about the Empyrean Age expansion, please visit the features page and read all about the new content: the introduction of a faction ranking system, new militias being mustered, fresh agents pertaining to the massive conflicts, a dynamic new structure of system occupancy, details on hidden deadspace complexes and a whole new region in space, “Black Rise.”
EVE Online: Empyrean Age incorporates elements of fiction that will be introduced in a novel by the same name, slated for a June 19th release, by Tony Gonzales. The author of many popular web-novellas and short stories, Gonzales’ novel takes the reader through time and space, bridging the passage of time between the somewhat harmonious setting of New Eden as it exists for players now to a world of broken alliances on the brink of war.
