April Release & Events

Eclipse Quadrant 2 Trailer Wednesday, April 15, 2020

Having split the year into four Quadrants, EVE's second Quadrant is called "Eclipse" and it will kick off on 6 April! The overall theme will revolve around shifting the balance of power in New Eden, and there will be events, celebrations, login campaigns, visual updates, huge balance changes, new and mysterious ships and weapons, as well as the final chapter of the Invasion expansion. The Fight or Flight Quadrant was fantastic, featuring highlights such as the Frigate Escape Bay, Loyalty to Lowsec, From Wormholes With Love, The Dragonaur Blitz and much much more, so expect Eclipse to follow that up in force!.

The Hunt Wednesday, April 15, 2020

First up for the Eclipse Quadrant will be the return of The Hunt on 6 April, a time of year when Capsuleers will undertake their now-annual egg hunt! Players will hunt down and scan capsules in order to gain access to special event sites, and potentially valuable drops. This will be an event with smaller ship classes like Frigates and Destroyers as the focus, so pilots with less experience and fewer skills trained can get involved. During The Hunt, player pods will have a chance of dropping their implants as loot when destroyed, so get podding!

PLEX For GOOD - COVID-19 Wednesday, April 15, 2020

Capsuleers of New Eden, it is time to unite once more and help fight the unprecedented worldwide health challenge posed by the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. PLEX For GOOD is returning with the aim of raising funds for the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

The money raised through this PLEX For GOOD campaign will help the World Health Organization (WHO) to coordinate the global effort, support countries to prevent, detect, and respond to the pandemic, and much more.

Surgical Strike – Coming 15 April Wednesday, April 15, 2020

The quest for a healthy Capital ecosystem continues with a massive update to Capital survivability, resistance modules, and more in the Surgical Strike update, coming this April!

As outlined in the recent Ecosystem Outlook blog, bold changes are being made across EVE in the search for diversity and new exciting options for pilots. Surgical Strike will bring Capital survivability more in line with the rest of New Eden, reduce the overwhelming power of logistics, make adjustments to some long-standing powerhouses in the Subcapital meta, and begin to establish more payoff for getting up close and personal with your enemies.

Skillers in the Abyss Wednesday, April 15, 2020

You loved the Skilling Spree, you loved the Chilling Spree, and you loved Skilling is Just a Means of Communication. Now, as part of the Eclipse Quadrant, it's time to dive back into the depths of the Abyss and take on whatever comes your way with the new Skillers in the Abyss event!

Log in between 11:00 UTC on 28 April and 11:00 UTC on 4 May and accept increasingly deadly daily challenges where you will have to kill either Abyssal Drones, Drifters, Sleepers or Triglavians in Abyssal Deadspace for Skill Point rewards.

To get started on your challenges, head over to the in-game regional market and acquire an Abyssal Filament, then activate it anywhere in space and you'll find yourself in Abyssal Deadspace!

If challenges remain uncompleted, they will be reset at the next downtime. They also do not need to be completed in order.

Happy skilling!
