EVE's Rubicon Has Been Crossed

Not just a river in Italy

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.

You can read the full patch notes here, and read far more coherent details about the new additions here.
