Arms Race Release
Dec 5th

Expanded Alpha Skillset Tuesday, December 5, 2017

With the December release, pilots both new and old will benefit from free access to all Tech I hulls up to Battleship class as part of a large addition of skills to the Alpha skillset. Cross-faction training will also be available for free, allowing for Alpha clone access to vessels across all factions in New Eden.

To supplement this change, free access will also be granted to skills that allow for the use of Tech II small and medium weapons systems.

Daily Alpha Injector Tuesday, December 5, 2017

The Arms Race release also brings a new training option for Alpha Pilots, with the ability to accrue skillpoints on a daily, rather than monthly basis using Daily Alpha Injectors.

These injectors can be used once per day, per alpha character, and can be activated immediately to add 50,000 skillpoints into a pilot’s unallocated skillpoint pool.

Project Discovery Monument Tuesday, December 5, 2017

The Arms Race release sees the appearance of a new monument from the Sisters of EVE to commemorate the efforts of all those who took part in Phase One of Project Discovery, and the 30 million classifications that we submitted by capsuleers during the project.

New Warp Disruption Bubble VFX Tuesday, December 5, 2017

This December, pilots will be able to enjoy a new effect for the Warp Disruption Bubble, that drastically reduces the amount of “white-out” experienced when multiple bubbles are placed in formations where they overlap.

The image above shows brightness before on the left, and after, on the right, with fifty bubbles overlaid on top of each other.

New Empire Selection Tuesday, December 5, 2017

After extensive testing during fall of 2017, the new Empire Selection system with overhauled visuals and information will be released to all accounts with this release, with every new character created from this release forward benefitting from the changes!

Resource Wars - New Role & Balancing Tuesday, December 5, 2017

With the Arms Race release, Resource Wars will see the introduction of a new role that allows capsuleers to fly as a support pilot, earning rewards by providing remote logistics to fellow capsuleers, and vessels from the empire that they’re supporting.

In addition to this, there’ll be some balance passes made on several aspects of Resource Wars for this release, including the addition of new rewards and some changes to their costs.

More Visual Renovation Tuesday, December 5, 2017

As part of the ongoing commitment to keeping New Eden as visually stunning as possible, capsuleers will be able to enjoy more improved textures on structures found in missions and deadspace areas with this release.
