EVE Online is an MMO game set in a world of galactic proportions, governed by a hyper-capitalistic economy where space flight is the path to all commerce, communication, and conflict.

EVE Online is a community-driven massively multiplayer online (MMO) game, set in a world of galactic proportions. This online universe is governed by a hyper-capitalistic economy where space flight is the path to all commerce, communication, and conflict. Your mission is to establish yourself as a major competitor, trusted by your friends, feared by your enemies. To accomplish this, your principle tools -- apart from an impressive array of sophisticated equipment, customizable space ships and in-game corporations -- will be your natural business acumen, social skills, Machiavellian thinking and cunning combat strategies.

Set tens of thousands of years in the future, EVE Online is a breathtaking journey to the stars, to an immersive experience filled with adventure, riches, danger and glory. With nearly a quarter of a million subscribers worldwide inhabiting the same virtual universe, EVE features a vast player-run economy where your greatest asset is the starship, designed to accommodate your specific needs, skills and ambitions. EVE offers professions ranging from commodities trader to mercenary, industrial entrepreneur to pirate, mining engineer to battle fleet commander or any combination of these and much more. From brokering business deals to waging war, you will have access to a diverse array of sophisticated tools and interfaces to forge your own destiny in EVE.

The Upwell Consortium is proud to announce Equinox, an unrivaled suite of solutions that is sure to revolutionize life in null security space. Set for deployment on YC 126.06.11, Equinox marks a monumental stride toward the future of space colonization and infrastructure development with innovative new structures that will allow enterprising nullsec organizations to harness and manipulate new resources from planets, customize their space, and gain access to a highly skilled and efficient workforce.

Equinox marks a monumental stride toward the future of space colonization and infrastructure development,” said an official representative for the Upwell Consortium. “It offers revolutionary new technology and structures to harness resources from planets and moons, as well as access to a highly skilled workforce. Equinox marks just the beginning of a new age of unprecedented capsuleer control over sovereign nullsec space – the first step in a broader vision for this vast region with endless possibilities. More developments are on the horizon, as Upwell continues to pursue more evolution, expansion, and excellence.”

CCP Games unveiled EVE Online: Equinox, the latest expansion for its sci-fi spacefaring MMO.

Launching on June 11, 2024, Equinox1 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.”

EVE Online is available for PC.
