EVE Online Releases Expansion

Published December 4, 2012

The MMORPG EVE Online has released their 18th expansion pack, Retribution.
EVE Online, probably CCP Games’ best known product, is an online video game that takes place in a fictional universe, where players develop their spaceships and fleets, mine resources, and combat others in real time. EVE has been continuously expanding and today, in a statement to the press, CCP Games announced that they have released their 18th expansion pack, entitled Retribution:

EVE Online: Retribution brings visceral consequences to the massive sci-fi universe, empowering pilots to exact revenge on a much larger scale than ever before. A unique bounty hunting system allows players to exert pressure on adversaries at the Alliance, Corporation and individual levels and a new ability to openly sell kill rights means a lot more eye-for-an-eye justice will be had. A reworked “Crimewatch” system makes clear the outcomes of acts both legal and illegal while still leaving limitless choice up to the player who decides to commit them.
In a massive rebalancing effort, every frigate, destroyer and cruiser in EVE will be re-engineered to provide more gameplay options for new players and veterans alike, revitalizing some of the less frequently used hulls.
Each of EVE’s main factions will add a deadly new destroyer to the market with this latest expansion, alongside other new additions: a mining frigate, salvage drones and a micro-jump drive. Further, a situational music system will accompany dozens of revamped sounds in the game. There are also several major changes to the user interface, making EVE Online: Retribution more intuitive without sacrificing any of its intricacy and potential.

Executive Producer of EVE Online Jon Lander said of the release, “The EVE Universe has always been alive, filled with the choices of the hundreds of thousands of pilots who’ve lived in it. With Retribution we’ve made many far reaching changes and I believe that EVE will feel revitalized as we head into our second decade.”
