"EVE Online: Invasion Chapter 2" Escalates The Invasion

CCP Games has introduced the next chapter to the invasion currently happening in EVE Online as the attacks ramp up against everyone. The new content coming this winter will throw New Eden into chaos as there's a fight happening around nearly every corner.  Capsuleers will be made to choose sides during engagements between the Empires and the Triglavian Collective, with two distinct paths through an all-new combat experience created by the devs. Basically, you're at war whether you like it or not to some degree, it's just a matter of which way you go. We have more details and photos below, along with a trailer showing off Chapter 2.

The awesome new Triglavian Dreadnought class vessel – the Zirnitra – also makes its bow in Invasion Chapter 2. This new ship will prove a challenging adversary for Capsuleers, but also a desirable prize for those that can pilot it. There will also be new skills required for piloting the Dreadnought, as well as new weaponry for it. In addition, the Mimesis Implant set and 16 new Firestorm SKINs provide a significant addition to the Loyalty Points store in EVE Online.

"EVE Online: Invasion Chapter 2 follows on naturally from the universe-changing events of the initial Triglavian Invasion" said Bergur FinnbogasonEVE Online's Creative Director. "Our goal was always to raise the intensity of Triglavian activity in familiar space and have the impact of their presence be felt even further afield. We're very eager to see how players will influence the conflict that is building up and how they'll interact with all the new things that Chapter 2 introduces!"

This chapter of the Invasion expansion also brings with it other new features too, including Shareable Bookmarks. This new addition allows Capsuleers to share specific locations in New Eden with alliance members and anyone else they choose, with control over access and duration.
