15th free expansion for EVE is set for November 29th

Within EVE Online‘s eternal crucible of warfare, politics and industry, even the most passionate and skilled are tested.

November 29th, 2011 will witness impressive evolutions in EVE Online’s graphics, interface and game mechanics with over three dozen updated and improved features based on feedback and challenges put forth by its passionate player community.

This is EVE reforged.

The global melting-pot/universe of player personalities sees a melting pot of improvements to match as CCP laser focuses on getting back to basics with its infamous internet spaceships.

Some of the major improvements players are lauding:

  • Four fan-designed battlecruisers built to deliver swift and effective destruction to the opposition
  • Over a dozen stunningly remade nebulae, changing the look and feel of EVE’s universe completely
  • Other fan-favorite graphical improvements such as engine trails, warp tunnels and shadows
  • Time dilation in fleet flights – adjusting time itself to keep fairness alive when hundreds of players face off against each other
  • 3 new factional captain’s quarters with unique, artistic looks
  • A significant ship rebalancing effort, to bring greater diversity and balance to large and small scale conflicts
  • A lot of small changes – from fonts to UI to Doomsday devices to PvE tweaks

Next week we’ll have a larger breakdown of the features and changes available for press.

More information is available at the Crucible feature page at  www.eveonline.com/crucible and that page will see regular updates as Crucible’s launch grows closer.
