While the station in Malkalen remains in twisted mothership and station ruins, the factional warfare has escalated. The Republic Fleet and Thukker tribe are converging on a CONCORD station in Yulai.

New agents are being recruited, and a new region, the Black Rise, is discovered between the Gallente Federation and the Caldari State.
Empyrean Age will release on Tuesday, June 10th. Have you chosen your side yet?



The next expansion: Empyrean Age

The next Eve expansion, Empyrean Age, is being released this summer. It’s already on the test server.

Here’s the teaser video:

Awesome. The main feature will be factional warfare. You or your entire corporation align with one of the four major factions. There’s a special agent called a Factional Warfare agent which assigns missions for you to go into enemy territory and cause trouble for isk, faction, and titles. If you have enough victories in the complex your group can attack the System Control Bunker and gain control of the system.

This may be just what Eve needs. Some PVP lite that gets pilots who are normally carebears introduced to the world of PVP. Since most of the fighting will take place in lowsec it may be a way to populate lowsec more since the systems are so empty now.

It looks exciting on paper; we’ll see what develops.

Goonswarm is at it again. They have declared war on highsec miners and haulers and have been attacking them in highsec!

This has generated quite the reaction in the Eve-O forums. The reaction has varied between threatening to quit the game all the way up to ship fittings on a mining ship to withstand a suicide gank.
