"Justice for all..if not by their laws, then by ours"

The full EVE Online: Retribution feature site is now live, preparing the hundreds of thousands of EVE Online players for the massive changes coming to the EVE Universe on December 4th. Following nine straight years of growth, EVE’s 18th expansion focuses on the consequences of personal choice in the single, Sci-Fi game universe.

Retribution's main features will

  • Open up the possibility of a new “profession” in bounty hunting allowing players to hold their enemies responsible for their actions
  • Simplify the interstellar law and punishment system known as Crimewatch
  • Rebalance all Tech I frigates, cruisers and destroyers in a massive effort that should refresh gameplay at all levels
  • Add a fresh and dynamic soundtrack with all new sound effects
  • Bring four new destroyers, a mining frigate and salvage drones into the players hands,
  • Overhaul combat UI and NPC AI, making them respectively more intuitive and more interesting
  • And a whole lot more
