Eve Online: The Empyrean Age

The latest evolutionary expansion of the Eve universe should be arriving next week, and it bears the title “The Empyrean Age“. As ever the title is a kind of clue as the contents, this time it means “age of fire” or somesuch Latinate cleverness. This is presumably a reference to the way that the expansion includes faction warfare, or the extension of PvP inwards to mission-running section of the game. Whereas missions were previously based around shooting computer-controlled drones, or delivering wine to far off space stations, they’re now going to be about having space-fights with other players. It could be a genuinely clever move for the game, as it could both bridge the safe starter-space realm and the hostile PvP-focused galactic periphery. It also provides some new challenges for old hands at the space-murder game, with a potential for less heavily committed play on a mission-by-mission basis.

After the jump: the trailer and some Eve videos by an RPS reader.

And this is a fairly good juncture to post RPS-reader RoBurky’s Eve video effort, Outgunned. I love the use of actual Teamspeak comms.

And here’s Rob’s first, rather more upbeat effort:
