CCP Games has unleashed EVE Online: Invasion, the newest expansion for the free-to-play spaceship MMO.
EVE Online: Invasion provides players the first chapter in the Triglavian story, plunging New Eden into chaos, as this inscrutable adversary begins its offensive. Capsuleers will be challenged to meet the threat head on, facing fleets of enemy ships, escalating consequences and earning lucrative rewards.
Invasion will provide a new presence and dimension to gameplay in EVE Online, starting with invading Triglavian forces in the form of roaming fleets laying siege to specific star systems in New Eden. Week by week, events will escalate and Capsuleers will have to face Triglavians emerging from Abyssal Deadspace in brand new sites. Finally, players will have to fight for their territory against the massive Triglavian World Ark.
"EVE has always been about actions having lasting and meaningful consequences, so with EVE Online: Invasion our goal has been to provide a universe-changing event for our community to experience in familiar space" said Bergur Finnbogason, EVE Online's Creative Director. "Capsuleers will be defending their territory from a fearsome new sect. We're incredibly keen to see our players fighting for the star systems they hold dear against an increasingly serious threat unlike anything they've ever faced before!"
The Invasion expansion introduces three new and formidable Triglavian ships in the Tech II category at Frigate, Destroyer and Cruiser class. As well as the new craft, Invasion introduces further alterations to the War Declaration system, plus additions to the Mutaplasmid system that players can loot from attacking Triglavian forces. This allows players to modify existing ship modules to make them more powerful or efficient, but as before, risking irreversible attribute reduction.
EVE Online: Invasion is available now and is free to download for all players.
