EVE Online Crius Launches

CCP announces today is the launch day for a new Crius update for EVE Online, saying this brings "universe-spanning changes" to their ruthless sci-fi MMORPG. This page offers details on the Crius update, a recent developer blog outlines how this changes the game's industry system, and this trailer from last week reports on the update from CCP's Reykjavik office. Here's word:

Sophisticated industrial operations underpin the famous player wars that rage across EVE’s thousands of star systems at the same time as smaller, individual efforts generate wealth, meaning and power for personal ambition. Crius allows player-influenced shifts in the industrial landscape to redefine the “sandbox” by adding assembly cost scaling and a market for work teams to supplement construction. Newer players will find an easier path into industry as manufacturing slots open up and the user interface is reimagined to be more intuitive and informative.
“Crius opens up EVE’s sprawling economy to a whole new generation of industrialists, as it has never been more intuitive, dynamic and interesting to build things for yourself or other players.” said Andie Nordgren, Senior Producer for EVE Online. “We’re eagerly awaiting to see how our players use one of the most sophisticated crafting and market systems in gaming now that it is live.”

From atmospheric audio to more wormholes in known space and more, Crius offers other changes in CCP’s ongoing commitment to improve EVE Online year after year.
