Seize control of your destiny with EVE Online: Equinox

REYKJAVÍK, Iceland – April 23, 2024 - Today, CCP Games unveiled EVE Online: Equinox, the latest expansion for the legendary sci-fi spacefaring MMO. Launching on June 11, 2024, Equinox promises to give capsuleers greater control over the lawless nullsec region of space, empower players to unleash their creativity, and deliver the next major feature update to sandbox FPS EVE Vanguard, fueling new commerce and conflict within the star cluster of New Eden.

With Equinox, capsuleers will be able to strategically harness the rich resources of nullsec and customize their in-game identity with a powerful new spaceship SKINR tool. Players will be able to acquire new ships and technology focused on helping them control and shape nullsec space in their image. By managing the Upwell Consortium’s new product suite, players will harvest and utilize various planetary resources, solar energy, and the labor efforts of a cloned workforce. Unleashing player creativity, SKINR will allow players to craft, customize, and sell their own ship SKINs, with a variety of cosmetic layers and patterns available, enabling them to explore a new creative career path and new ways to fly the banner of their organizations and social groups.

Equinox will also deliver a wide range of improvements to corporation management and an expanded path for new capsuleers to acclimate to New Eden’s intricacies. A streamlined and intuitive UI overhaul makes navigating the corporation window easier than ever, while members can contribute to Corporation Projects through new avenues such as ship sacrifice, salvaging wrecks, and earning Loyalty Points. Improvements to the AIR career system will see rookie pilots taking on even more diverse daily challenges and contributing to longer-term goals.

EVE has always been defined by its players’ ability to forge their own destiny through economic dominance, political machinations and military conquest,” said Bergur Finnbogason, EVE Online’s Creative Director. “With Equinox, we’re taking that open-ended freedom to new heights by giving pilots greater agency over nullsec’s valuable resources - while challenging them with the moral implications about the cost of such ambition. We’re also extremely excited to see what amazing designs players will make with EVE’s new SKINR tool: the sky truly is the limit for personalizing your favorite ships.”

Evolving in close collaboration with the EVE Online community, the next major feature update for EVE Vanguard will introduce an exotic new map, weapon modification, and new activities within the sandbox. Players will be given the ability to mold their playstyle with adaptive weaponry, take on new contracts, and scour the ruins of a facility on an archipelago among polluted waters. The limited-time event runs from June 20 – July 1 for Omega accounts.

“This expansion marks the continuation of EVE Vanguard as the ultimate evolving sci-fi sandbox FPS. Our process of collaboration with the community is a unique opportunity for players to become closely involved with the game’s future direction, and we thank our founders for contributing towards our shared vision of a compelling shooter in the EVE Universe,” said Snorri Arnason, EVE Online’s Game Director. “With a dangerously beautiful new map, adaptive weaponry, and new ways to play we can’t wait to see the chaos that the Vanguard will inflict on its shores as their impact grows across the ongoing conflicts of New Eden.”
