New Expansion "Tyrannis" Announced!

New Expansion "Tyrannis" Announced! - EVE Online -

EVE Online Senior Producer Torfi Frans Olafsson revealed EVE's next expansion, Tyrannis, in a dev blog posted on the official EVE Online website today.

The new expansion will focus on planetary exploration. Tapping into community feedback, CCP Games is looking to fulfill players' desires to "build something big" by allowing the pod pilots of New Eden to explore and develop all of EVE Online's many planets. Players will be able to build "complex networks and facilities" on said planets,  as well as tap them for resources.

There will not be any planetary combat included with the release of Tyrannis, instead, the expansion will focus entirely on industry and exploration. Planetary combat will be introduced with the release of DUST 514, which through its connection with EVE, will allow players to project military force to defend or attack planetary instellations.

For more information on EVE Online: Tyrannis read the full dev blog here.

Tyrannis is set to release this summer, so mark your calendars!
