Yo, G-LYFE Nation, listen up! CCP Games just detonated a content nuke at EVE Fanfest 2023. We’re talkin’ a brand new expansion called Havoc and a wild FPS module named EVE Vanguard. Both are set to roll out later this year. Here’s the 411.
Havoc Expansion: Unleash Hell in New Eden
Scheduled for a November 14 release, Havoc asks you, the Capsuleer, to pick a side: be a disruptor or defender. The Angel Cartel and Guristas pirate crews want you to stir the pot. By joining these rogue homies, you can unlock exclusive faction-aligned loot drops. But if you’re more of a do-gooder, you can fight off the corruption instead.
A New System Unveiled: Welcome to Zarzakh
Don’t sleep on this! Havoc introduces Zarzakh, a mysterious new system controlled by the Deathless, the newest agents of chaos in the universe. This spot is gonna be the playground for your pirate shenanigans or anti-pirate heroics.
Corporation Projects Revamped
That’s not all! The expansion also overhauls Corporation Projects, adding features that let the big shots manage things more efficiently. New roles and project types mean rewards for your hard grind in the game.
New Ships and Enhancements: Pimp Your Ride
Capsuleers will have a fleet of new ships to choose from, including the jaw-dropping Angel Titan. Plus, quality-of-life updates aim to make the gameplay smoother for both noobs and veterans.
Carbon Engine: Buffing Up the Graphics
Get ready for a facelift, folks. EVE Online will soon deploy the Carbon Engine, boosting the game’s technical and graphical prowess.
EVE Vanguard: A New FPS Module in the Mix
But wait, there’s more! CCP Games gave us a sneak peek of EVE Vanguard, a first-person shooter built on Unreal Engine 5. You’ll play as Vanguard war clones, taking on dangerous contracts across New Eden’s planets.
Dynamic Gameplay: Level Up Your Gear and Strategy
Whether you roll with your squad or lone-wolf it, you’ll need to complete missions and nab resources to upgrade your clone and gear. This ain’t just any shooter; it’s connected to EVE Online from day one.
First Strike: A Test Run for the Brave
EVE Online Omega players will get early access to EVE Vanguard this December. The mass test, dubbed First Strike, can be accessed directly through the EVE Online launcher on PC.
The Vision: Community at the Core
Bergur Finnbogason, EVE Online’s Creative Director, emphasized the importance of player impact. Choices you make in Havoc will have real implications in the world of New Eden. The same goes for EVE Vanguard, as CCP Games CEO Hilmar Veigar Pétursson notes. It’s all about the community shaping the future of these interconnected experiences.
So there you have it, gamers. Between Havoc and EVE Vanguard, New Eden is about to get a whole lot wilder. Choose your path wisely.
