Am 22. Mai wird die 17. kostenlose Erweiterung "Inferno" für EVE Online veröffentlicht. Die Erweiterung soll die Einstiegshürden für Neulinge senken, generell mehr Kontrolle über die Kriege ermöglichen und zusätzlich neue Waffensystem einführen. Auch die Grafik soll verbessert werden.
Missiles and Launchers
"There is no feeling like launching five kilotons of explosives from your ship, watching it travel the distance to its target, and witnessing the blinding impact that destroys your enemy. Inferno brings that feeling to a whole new level with Missiles and Launchers. Missile enthusiasts can now join the other combatants and indulge in every wonderful visual moment leading to that final killing blow. Launchers are now visible for you to enjoy and your enemy to fear. Missiles now look, travel, and explode the way you expect: with immense impact and satisfying results."
"You want a breathtaking, immersive universe to play in. Since its release, EVE Online has been on the cutting edge of technology, delivering the highest fidelity visuals in online gaming. Inferno honors that commitment, upgrading the appearance of a range of content, including most of the Amarr faction’s fleet. Now, with improved system requirements, even more players will be able to enjoy the breathtaking nebulae, shimmering wormholes, and majestic ships of EVE Online in all their glory."
War Declaration System
"You wage wars spanning hundreds of conflicts and thousands of participants. Inferno improves your ability to manage these epic clashes with a timeline view showing the course of battle, and a new War Report that details your tactical achievements for all to see. Feeling bold? Set a 'surrender amount' on the declaration of war and allow adversaries the option of keeping their ships intact, while feeling somewhat poorer."
"After you've cut your teeth in Factional Warfare or solo combat, it’s time to step into the shadows. Build a reputation together with your friends as the best mercenary crew in the universe. Have an axe to grind with someone? Now you can pick and choose the best group to deliver your revenge. The Mercenary Marketplace matches desire with ability, and reputation with wealth and fame. Become feared and adored among hundreds of thousands of players in one EVE Universe! "
"You have hangars of ships at your disposal and wealth that spans the galaxy. Unified Inventory gives you convenient access to all of it. Searching for your favorite ship is now easier. Assessing your stockpiles, more convenient. Admiring the fruits of your labors, more rewarding."
