EVE Online Preps to Release Mini-Expansion

Posted Tue, Aug 18, 2009 by Savanja

EVE Online is revving up for the release of Apocrypha 1.5, a mini-expansion with a full roster of content goodies sure to please every pilot. Update 1.5 will be bringing with it new epic mission arcs, changes to factional warfare, major lag improvements, as well as a few other updates.

EVE Online Apocrypha 1.5 will be released on 20th, August, 2009. This mini expansion will bring new and exciting content to New Eden including four new Epic Mission Arcs, one for each of the main Empire factions. These arcs will be at Level 4 mission difficulty to provide a challenge even to experienced mission runners. Multi sized rigs will be available, allowing pilots to fit smaller rigs on smaller ships while maintaining the same effect. Changes have been made to Factional Warfare; lag has been reduced substantially allowing for much smoother fleet fights, loyalty point stores now offer substantial discounts on Navy Issue ships while incorporating unique faction modules to pilots.

Players can earn loyalty points for the stores both by completing agent missions and by killing player ships belonging to the enemy militia. Black Ops Battleships now have a dedicated fuel bay that can be used to store fuel for their covert cynosural generators and jump drives while the Orca and Rorqual now have a dedicated bay for storing ore.

In addition to all of this new content we have made multiple changes to the scanning and probing mechanics, added to our ‘Need for Speed’ initiative to reduce lag and improve performance along with a host of other fixes and changes.

This update is scheduled to hit live servers on August 20, 2009, just in time for weekend gameplay for New Eden players!!
