Red Moon Rising Coming Soon

Updated Sun, May 25, 2008 by Ethec

"Bad Moon Rising" is CCR, not CCP: this is "Red... Red Moon Rising!"

CCP has announced the release of EVE Online: Red Moon Rising, a free expansion to the popular sci-fi MMOG.  Red Moon Rising will be available in December.   
"CCP Games, an independent developer and publisher of massively multiplayer online games, today announced the public release of "EVE Online®: Red Moon Rising”, a new expansion to its highly successful and fast-growing Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) “EVE Online®: Exodus”. Red Moon Rising is scheduled for release this December, and will be provided to subscribers free of charge.

“Red Moon Rising is the last of the EXODUS chapters and is the precursor of the Kali expansion," said Magnus Bergsson, CMO of CCP Games. “Players will see new ships and features in Red Moon Rising created explicitly to augment warfare, so those who crave the adrenaline rush of action-packed PVP will really enjoy this release!”

With nearly 80,000 active subscribers and over 17,000 simultaneous users on one server, “EVE Online” is the largest independently developed and published MMORPG on the market.

“The introduction of these new components is analogous to adding rooks, knights, and the mighty queen to a galactic chessboard,” said Nathan Richardsson, Lead Producer for EVE Online. “Fighters, carriers, and titans are going to take combat to a scale that the MMPORG genre has never seen before. In addition, the sheer economics required just to produce these leviathans will create great opportunities for industrious-minded gamers to take advantage of.”

EVE Online®: Red Moon Rising is the march towards an epic clash between the empires as the tentative peace presiding over the galaxy continues to slip away. Nations begin to conspire against one another, secretly preparing for the inevitable conflict that threatens to redefine the borderlines of EVE forever.

Some of the key features of this upgrade are:

• Titans: The largest, most fearsome space faring battle vessels ever created
• Carriers: Front line capital ships providing fighter coverage and support for fleets
• Bloodlines: The addition of Asian bloodlines available to each of the races
• COSMOS Constellation Expansion: Addition of constellation missions to Gallente and Amarr territories
• Fighters: The main offensive and defensive weapon of the Carrier
• Starbases and sovereignty: Additions of roles to improve control access of services and improved calculations of player-determined Sovereignty
• Next-Generation Manufacturing & Research Facilities: Mass-manufacturing enabling and remote industry management.
• Performance Optimizations: Optimizations to core systems to provide even better performance.
• Mining Industry Upgrade: New equipment, ships and skills for miners
• Combat Enhancements: Varied improvements to combat, enhanced defenses and configuration overhauls
• Jettisoned Canister Flagging: Removing the contents of a jettisoned canister that is not your own will flag you as a thief
• Drone Enhancements: New drone capabilities and improved performance
• An Eye for an Eye: You are allowed to revenge the unlawful destruction of your ship
• Tech II: 23 new Tech II ships, including destroyers, battlecruisers and mining barges
• New Corporate Logos: Corporations have more options to create their own identity
• NPC Changes: New NPC's featuring elite ships with advanced capabilities such as cap draining
• UI Improvements: Need info from Hagen.
• Full Unicode Client: The EVE client now supports any language in the universe "
