CCP Games announces the launch of the Kronos
update for EVE Onlin
saying this is the first release in "a new development cadence" for the sci-fi
MMORPG. They celebrate the occasion with the release of
two new Kronos chronicles
as well as the grand opening of the
. Here's word on the new expansion:
Kronos focuses on the
continued decline of the four major empires and celebrates the concurrent rise
of pirate factions and player influence across the constellations. It also
heralds a change in EVE’s development structure, replacing two major expansions
per year with up to ten releases. The change allows for more ambitious features,
quicker delivery of content and functionality, and provides more frequent
updates for players to look forward to.
In Kronos, EVE’s legendary space combat will forever change thanks to the new
and deadly Mordu’s Legion ships, a stealthy mining frigate, and 38 other
rebalanced ships and drones. Gorgeous visual changes include reimagined solar
flares, warp effects and new ship skins. An entirely customizable soundscape
allows players to tailor their own audio experience.
Low-security space sites and dozens of other changes round out Kronos and set
the stage for the massive industry features coming in July’s Crius release.
