concept art, and there's also
a reveal video on Twitch
Here's an outline:
In EVE Online: Rubicon, empowered players wage
guerilla-style warfare against their opponents, raid their space and erode
industrial power from deep behind enemy lines. Focused on individual and small
fleet activity, new quick-strike options offer a powerful war tactic and a fresh
style of victory in EVE’s “sandbox” universe.
This November will also see a new set of mobile, player-owned structures created
to support action outside of the safety of the hangar. Meant for both solo and
group use, they accentuate and diversify gameplay for pilots seeking to find
their homes amongst the stars.
Rubicon continues where Odyssey left off with new exploration content and a
versatile new line of faction ships that are perfect for navigating and
infiltrating the nearly 8,000 solar systems of the EVE Universe. In addition,
the Marauder, Electronic Attack Frigate, Interceptor and Interdictor class hulls
head back to the shipyards for re-engineering amongst other balancing changes.
New certificate and ship identification systems will help novice players ease
into one of the world’s most indisputably deep games and give veteran players a
greater sense of what to accomplish next.
