The Abyss Awaits... Tuesday, May 29, 2018

With New Eden thrown into chaos after a new threat emerges on the fringes of known space, the CONCORD Assembly enlists the assistance of capsuleers to venture off the edges of the map and into the unknown. Beyond charted space lies Abyssal Deadspace, the hazardous domain of a radically advanced civilization, The Triglavian Collective.

This new frontier brings the promise of technology light years ahead of the most advanced in New Eden, but the risks involved to acquire it may prove too much for all but the most skilled of pilots.

A new horizon has been drawn, and the beauty of this new domain is matched only by it's unforgiving ferocity. New vessels, weapons, technologies and unimaginable wealth lie beyond, but only for those intrepid few who dare make the journey into the abyss.

Abyssal Deadspace Tuesday, May 29, 2018

A new frontier fraught with unknown hazards provides a new challenge for capsuleers across the cluster.

New technology, weapons and blueprints for radically advanced vessels lie beyond the fringes of known space, but pilots will have to race against the clock to take a chance on claiming them.

The rewards for success may be generate wealth beyond belief, but the cost of failure can be deadly.

Demavik Tuesday, May 29, 2018

Utilizing Entropic Disintegrator technology, the Demavik is a fast attack frigate with substantial damage potential and the ability to dictate the range and rules of engagement.

In the hands of a skilled pilot, it's a deadly adversary that will no doubt have many frigate pilots rethinking their engagement tactics.

Vedmak Tuesday, May 29, 2018

A solid damage platform that utilizes Triglavian weapons technology, the Vedmak is a fearsome cruiser with the ability to dictate engagement range and the staying power to remain on the field for lengthy engagements.

Capsuleers who master this cruiser may be among the best pilots in the cluster.

Leshak Tuesday, May 29, 2018

A true behemoth from the abyss, the Leshak utilizes Triglavian weapons technology to boast the highest potential destructive power of any sub capital class vessel in existence.

Battleship pilots who can get to grips with piloting the Leshak will be revered on the field of battle, and feared by any capsuleer their crosshairs fall upon.

Mutaplasmids Tuesday, May 29, 2018

The Triglavian Collective possess biotechnology with the capability of altering resources and modules in the abyss. This technology takes the form of artificial mycoplasmid colonies that can be harvested from within abyssal deadspace, and unleashed on existing modules.

These mutaplasmids will alter the properties of modules in unpredictable ways, sometimes increasing their bonuses and making them more efficient, and other times rendering them less capable than before.

Capsuleers should be careful when taking the risk on potential experimentation, but the rewards for being bold could vastly increase the value of their hardware.

Entropic Disintegrators Tuesday, May 29, 2018

An entirely new weapon system with wildly different characteristics to anything seen in New Eden before, Entropic Disintegrators have no falloff range and build power over time, reaching a peak damage discharge 50% greater than their initial damage at activation.

In the hands of a skilled pilot these new weapons can prove devastating, however capsuleers will need to manage range and utilize solid tactics, as Entropic Disintegrators deactivate and discharge once their target drifts out of optimal range, resetting their damage potential.

Planetary Interaction Updates Tuesday, May 29, 2018

With Into The Abyss, Planetary Interaction will see some significant UI and UX improvements. These changes will make planetary installations easier to maintain and improve the flow and visual feedback during initial setup.

New indicators will show when nodes aren't fully set up, new pinning mechanics will make it easier to drop multiple nodes of the same type, and a whole host of new tooltips will give guidance on how to use various elements of planetary interaction, guiding capsuleers through setup with more detail than ever before.
