The Invasion Is Coming! Tuesday, May 28, 2019

EVE Online: Invasion, the exciting new expansion coming 28 May 2019, sees the fearsome Triglavians emerge from the Abyss for the first time! Capsuleers should be prepared to meet the threat head on, to face formidable enemy ships, escalating consequences and earn lucrative rewards.

Invasion will provide a new presence and dimension to gameplay in New Eden, with invading Triglavian forces and roaming fleets laying siege to specific star systems in New Eden, forcing pilots to fight for their territory, scoring valuable rewards. The lines between known space and Abyssal Deadspace will be blurred, with invaded systems exhibiting strange environmental effects. Capsuleers will have to contend with sites of varying difficulty, from Minor and Major Conduits to the World Ark Proving Ground.

Ikitursa Tuesday, May 28, 2019

The iconic Vedmak receives a strong Tech II variation in the form of the brand new Heavy Assault Cruiser, the Ikitursa.

As expected from its ship class, Assault Damage Controls can be fitted to the Ikitursa greatly enhancing its defensive capabilities. It also receives powerful bonuses to the maximum damage multiplier for heavy entropic disintegrators making the Ikitursa a powerful ship for frontline brawls.

Draugur Tuesday, May 28, 2019

The Draugur is a terrifying Tech II invention of the Kikimora inheriting many of its characteristics while establishing the Draugur into the Command Destroyers class of ships.

With the ability to fit Command Burst and Micro Jump Field Generator modules, the Draugur also brings to the field its bonuses in light entropic disintegrators and a reduced signature radius penalty for Microwarpdrives.

Nergal Tuesday, May 28, 2019

As a Tech II Assault Frigate, the Nergal is a complete upgrade from the Damavik in almost every way.

Assault Damage Controls are available to be fitted to the Nergal along with bonuses to the maximum damage multiplier for light entropic disintegrators. Similar to the Draugur and Ikitursa, it also features a reduced signature radius penalty for Microwarpdrives.

New Mutaplasmids Tuesday, May 28, 2019

Brand new Mutaplasmids are discovered to be possessed by the Triglavian Collective that directly affect Damage Control Units and Assault Damage Control Units. They can be found in Decayed, Gravid, and Unstable variations.

Unstable Mutaplasmids for both Ancillary Shield Boosters and Ancillary Amor Repairers are also re-discovered in the Invasion expansion.

Tech II Ammo Changes Tuesday, May 28, 2019

A popular player request makes it way to Tranquility with the Invasion expansion.

Tech II ammunition will be able to be loaded into all Faction, Storyline, and Officer weapon variations. This will open up options for more fitting variations available than ever before without sacrificing the use of Tech II ammunition in your weapons.

Triglavian Industry Changes Tuesday, May 28, 2019

To accommodate the new Tech II Triglavian Ships being added, we're taking the opportunity to adjust Triglavian ship and module production with the Invasion expansion.

Brand new skills are introduced which are required for the invention and manufacture of Tech II Triglavian ships. New datacores, and new tech II components will also be made available that will be used for the invention and production of these Tech II Triglavian ships.

The Agency - Redesign Tuesday, May 28, 2019

An overhaul of The Agency is also arriving with the Invasion expansion, with a focus on making content and activities in New Eden more discoverable and accessible to both new and established pilots alike. The Agency will see the return of the agent finder, as well as a visual overhaul to make activities, resource gathering and exploration clearer and more concise.

Join the EVE 64-Bit Open Beta! Tuesday, May 28, 2019

We are delighted to announce that pilots across the cluster will be able to join an opt-in open beta for the 64-bit EVE client with the release of the summer expansion for EVE Online. This represents a key modernization moment in the development of EVE Online and is a substantial milestone in CCP's continued investment in the future of New Eden.

With the launch of EVE Online: Invasion, pilots will be able to switch their launcher over to download the 64-bit client for EVE Online if they wish to do so, as we finalize its roll-out toward the summer. Eventually the 64-bit client will become the standard for EVE, replacing older 32-bit architecture. For now, the two will run side by side as we beta test 64-bit clients on Tranquility.
