Arms Race Update Gives Free Players New Firepower & Experiences -

EVE Online is expanding the experience for its free players with the deployment of the Arms Race update. Alpha Clones, EVE's version of free accounts, will now be able to train more skills than before, fly larger and more powerful ships and equip better, more deadly weapons.

Alpha Clones can now train skills that will allow them to fly both the Battleship and Battlecruiser vessels as well as other ships throughout the game. In tangent with this, players will also have new skills to "allow for the use of upgraded weapons systems".

Alpha Clones also have a new training option with "the ability to accrue skillpoints on a daily, rather than monthly, basis using Daily Alpha Injectors".

In addition, the Arms Race update includes many other enhancements and refinements for EVE Online. The Resource Wars feature will see the introduction of a new role that allows players to fly as a support pilot, earning rewards by providing remote logistics to fellow players, plus vessels from the Empire that they support. Players will now take on an elevated threat, with Pirate Forward Operating Bases becoming easier to find and engage with. Furthermore, as part of CCP’s ongoing commitment to keeping New Eden as visually stunning as possible, players will be also able to enjoy improved textures on structures found in missions and deadspace areas.

The Arms Race update also sees the appearance of a new in-game monument to commemorate the efforts of all all the EVE Online players who contributed to real science through the development of the Human Protein Atlas as part of Project Discovery.

Check out the video below for more information about the Arms Race update or visit the EVE Online site to learn more.
