EVE Online Invasion Invades This Month

CCP Games announces Invasion, a new expansion for EVE Online that will force those playing the space MMORPG to face a threat from the "mysterious Triglavian race." Here are details on the add-on, which is expected on May 28th:

Today, CCP Games announced 'Invasion', the newest expansion to EVE Online, the biggest single shard free-to-play spaceship MMO game of all time. Arriving 28 May, EVE Online: Invasion brings a thrilling adversary to the known space of New Eden for the first time, thrusting the mysterious Triglavian race to the forefront of the game. Capsuleers will be challenged to meet the threat head on, facing new enemy ships, escalating consequences and earning lucrative rewards. EVE Online: Invasion will be free to download for all players.

“EVE has always been about actions having lasting and meaningful consequences, so with EVE Online: Invasion our goal has been to provide a universe-changing event for our community to experience in familiar space” said Bergur Finnbogason, EVE Online’s Creative Director. “Capsuleers will be defending their territory from a fearsome new sect. We’re incredibly keen to see our players fighting for the star systems they hold dear against an increasingly serious threat unlike anything they've ever faced before!”

The Invasion expansion will provide a new presence and dimension to gameplay in New Eden that will bring players back time and again, inspiring them to be a part of history unfolding, the effects of which promise to change the EVE universe forever.

“EVE Online has always had the goal of providing new experiences and a living universe like no other,” said Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, CCP’s Chief Executive Officer. “With EVE celebrating 16 years of strength and innovation, we continue to build on that ambition and tradition. I truly believe that by challenging our Capsuleers to defend the universe they have shaped, their destiny - as ever - remains in their own hands, ensuring EVE's appeal now and into the future.”

Progressing the Triglavian story in EVE Online onward throughout 2019, the Invasion expansion introduces three new and formidable Triglavian ships in the Tech II category at Frigate, Destroyer and Cruiser class. There will also be additions to the Mutaplasmid system that players can loot from Abyssal Deadspace. This will allow players to modify their existing ship modules to make them more powerful or efficient, but as before, they risk irreversible attribute reduction too!

EVE Online: Invasion also brings further iterations to the War Declaration system that will consolidate recent improvements, as well as added content and user experience improvements to The Agency, helping players to access varied and exciting content more easily.

The learning curve is very, very steep. You'll ideally want a friend there to walk you through it, but there's ingame tutorials too.

I haven't played in years, and couldn't get back into it, but I had fun for a few months. I played with two family members, though, and that helped quite a bit. Two of us got a little TOO into the game and ended up quitting, but we were doing pretty okay for money with just PVE and trading.

I think the game is partly F2P now, too, which might be enough to test the waters.

I've been intrigued by this game for a long time. Outside some of the egregious griefing, it seems kind of a cool environment. But it has always seemed like the learning and economy curves were pretty daunting. Anyone tried to jump into this game in like the last five years? If so, were those curves as tough as them seem?

I had a 6 week free pass more than a decade ago. It was fun: I bought some ships, did some mining, bought a destroyer, trained and outfitted it, blasted some pirates. It was similar to E:D in a lot of respects. Being a lone wolf, I operated mostly in safe space or neutral, I never went to null sec. Not sure if they still offer the free passes, but it's worth a try if they do. I had fun with it.

The land in Minecraft is flat, Minecraft simulates the Earth, ergo the Earth is flat.

Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.
