Following up on their lengthy Invasion story this past year, CCP Games has launched a new chapter today with EVE Online: Zenith. Following up on Quadrant 1: Fight or Flight and Quadrant 2: Eclipse, the developers have now made way for Quadrant 3: Zenith which will be the final part of the Triglavian Invasion storyline set about to unfold in the game. Everything that the players have been doing up to this point will start to show in the universe as they have been influencing the outcome of the past year's events. Which should have many a person bracing for the consequences as the Triglavian Empire's power is about to reach an all-time high. You can read more about it below along with the latest screenshots and trailer as the update is officially in the game.
Offering a wealth of new rewards and challenges, Zenith will encompass new live events, balance changes, brand-new content and huge visual updates that will unfold across the Quadrant amidst the roar of Triglavian warfare. The Zenith Quadrant begins with a big update to the Abyssal Proving Grounds feature, and the introduction of new Proving Filaments to New Eden. The Proving Filaments, attainable from today, will take pilots from any point in space directly to an Abyssal Proving Ground inside Abyssal Deadspace where they will engage in PvP combat. Different combat formats, specific ship classes, new leaderboards and new Triglavian-themed settings will all ensure an explosive start to this Quadrant.
"This year has been a reflection of one of the core tenets for EVE Online – that actions have consequences," said Bergur Finnbogason, EVE Online's Creative Director. "Splitting the year into four Quadrants has enabled us to systematically deliver our design philosophy that player choice should weave the fabric of New Eden, shaping the future of EVE's universe and everyone within it. Capsuleers take note, in Quadrant 3: Zenith things are about to get wild."
