In addition to an increase and ever expanding Triglavian threat, capsuleers can look forward to three all-new tech II Triglavian hulls: the Nergal class Assault Frigate, the Draugur class Command Destroyer and the Ikitursa class Heavy Assault Cruiser. These will be accompanied by new mutaplasmid groups for Damage Controls, Assault Damage Controls and both Ancillary Shield and Armor repairers, adding even more tactical options to ship fitting in EVE.
EVE Online: Invasion also brings further long-awaited updates to the war declaration system, building on changes that have been in progress since December and over the course of the last four releases, with improvements to mutual wars, as well as simplification to the cost of wars with a simple flat fee for all war declarations replacing the previous complicated formula for calculating costs.
An overhaul of The Agency is also arriving with the Invasion expansion, with a focus on making content and activities in New Eden more discoverable and accessible to both new and established pilots alike. The Agency will see the return of the agent finder, as well as a visual overhaul to make activities, resource gathering and exploration clearer and more concise. Of course, EVE Online: Invasion will also contain a whole range of quality of life fixes and improvements too, with improvements to the station services user experience and interface, as well as balance pass for the Triglavian Damavik class frigate, and tweaks to Electronic Warfare drones. To round off balance changes, there’ll also be improvements to Tech II ammunition, allowing faction, storyline and officer weapons to utilize it.
We’re super excited to watch the landscape of New Eden take another step in its sixteen-year long evolution on May 28th. We can’t wait to see how all New Eden’s capsuleers engage with the new content that’s coming your way soon! There’ll be more information about EVE Online: Invasion in the coming weeks, with a refresh of EVE Updates coming soon, and full patch notes the week before release.
