EVE Online’s Winter expansion, Rubicon, is now live. And how do we best celebrate this? A CGI trailer! Still, at least it isn’t live action, I suppose.
Picking up where previous expansion Odyssey left things, adding in Ghost Sites for players to venture into – treasure troves in pirate space, packed with new technologies. It’s all about a power shift against the Empires.
Players will find Marauder, Electronic Attack Frigate, Interceptor and Interdictor class ships will be getting a new lick of paint, and a bunch of balancing tweaks, combat pilots being drawn into what CCP call “guerilla-style warfare”. There are new ships for the explorers and industrialists, as well as “hi-sec customs offices”, promising more money and thrills. And they promise further help for new players, with “new certificate and ship identification systems” – that should put the noobs at ease, eh? Oh, EVE, you’ve forgotten how to not speak in EVE.
