EVE Online: Lifeblood Tuesday, October 24, 2017

As new technologies for resource acquisition emerge in the form of Upwell Refineries, new moon mining capabilities and refined reaction processes, pirate factions have set their sights on taking a slice of the dwindling resources that remain in New Eden.

With more tools for resource gathering at the hands of capsuleers than ever before, the competition for raw materials and supremacy over space is becoming more heated than ever as the cluster is pushed closer toward the brink of all out conflict.

Refineries Tuesday, October 24, 2017

The next class of capsuleer-built structures are arriving, putting even more industrial power in the hands of pilots throughout New Eden!

Refineries will revolutionize how consumable resources are harvested and processed in New Eden, and will become the premier structure for capsuleers to use when collecting, processing, refining and reprocessing.

This new line of structures will offer an entirely new method of moon mining, and improve the ability to carry out reactions by utilizing the industry UI for the process, allowing capsuleers to streamline their industrial workflows like never before.

Moon Mining Tuesday, October 24, 2017

With the arrival of refineries, capsuleers will now be able to carry out moon mining operations directly via these structures, transforming the process from an entirely passive form of income into an active form of gameplay that promotes collaboration and conflict.

Improved Reactions Tuesday, October 24, 2017

The arrival of refineries heralds a rework of reactions, wherein they will be moved into the industry UI and will be a process exclusive to refinery structures.

With a simplified interface for ease of use by pilots of all levels of industrial expertise, the new reactions system will bring a more coherent and clear process to the fingertips of both veteran and rookie industrialists.

Resource Wars Tuesday, October 24, 2017

As pirate forces encroach on the borders of New Eden’s sovereign nations, capsuleers are being contracted to assist with resource gathering operations in high security space. Forming part of resource gathering expeditions as combat or mining pilots, capsuleers both young and old will be able to take part in collaborative gameplay with other capsuleers to assist their chosen empire with the release of EVE Online: Lifeblood.

Guristas Shipyards Tuesday, October 24, 2017

The pirate factions of New Eden continue their arms race for supremacy, as the Guristas Pirates are next to branch out into mass manufacture of capital class vessels.

Refusing to sit idle and spectate as the Blood Raiders build a formidable fleet, the Guristas now have their own production facilities which contain highly valuable blueprints for their capital ship designs.

With the winter expansion, capsuleers can look forward to assaulting these shipyards in order to get their hands on very rare blueprints for highly capable and advanced capital class vessels.

Caiman Tuesday, October 24, 2017

A vessel designed for one purpose – to savage anything hostile it encounters – the Caiman packs a vicious punch from its primary weapons systems while still being able to launch light fighters to provide additional firepower.

Komodo Tuesday, October 24, 2017

With the release of Guristas Shipyards, a true dragon is released. A vessel like no other, the Komodo benefits from a huge array of bonuses that allow it to affirm its position as one of the most formidable supercapital class vessels in New Eden.

Loggerhead Tuesday, October 24, 2017

A true support behemoth, the Loggerhead has the staying power to dominate the battlefield, combined with remote repair abilities to ensure that those flying alongside it can remain in the fight for as long as possible.

Pirate Forward Operating Bases Tuesday, October 24, 2017

Increased conflict over dwindling resources across New Eden has caused the Guristas and Blood Raiders to expand their influence and industrial capability, staging daring raids into high-security space which lies under the sovereignty of the empires.

New pirate Forward Operating Bases – or FOBs – have been spotted across New Eden, creating new opportunities for groups of likeminded capsuleers to band together and work toward driving out the threat.

Scan them down and hit them hard to reap the rewards from defeating hostile forces.

Alpha Ship Balance Pass Tuesday, October 24, 2017

With the deployment of EVE Online: Lifeblood, there’ll be a sizable balance pass to many of the hulls popular among Alpha pilots, in order to give them a little more punch, including a few slot layout and bonus changes that aim to shake up the combat meta a little, and provide new tactical options for these classes of hull.

Improvements To The Agency Tuesday, October 24, 2017

With the arrival of EVE Online: Lifeblood, many user experience improvements will be made to the interface for The Agency, including the ability to find gameplay sessions with likeminded pilots so that capsuleers can collaborate on exploration, mining, combat and other aspects of life in space together.

Marshal Tuesday, October 24, 2017

In celebration of the 20th Anniversary of CCP Games, every purchase of a ticket to both Fanfest 2017 and EVE Vegas 2017 will be rewarded with a Marshal class CONCORD Battleship.

Under CONCORD command, the Marshal is the last word in maintaining interstellar peace. Flown by the most seasoned and experienced CONCORD pilots, it has remained the mainstay vessel of CONCORD for almost a century and will prove a formidable opponent, even with its CONCORD mandated weapons hardware stripped out.

The Marshal will be distributed after EVE Vegas 2017, in a winter release.
