New Mission System and Epic Missions - EVE Online -

Some of you might have heard about a new mission system that is coming in Apocrypha. Whether you're part of the mission-running PVE fanbase or a diehard PVPer, you may have some questions. What exactly does this "new mission system" mean to you, the player?

Pretty much all of the changes to the mission system resulted from our work on the "Epic Mission System" toolset. Two sprint teams in our Atlanta office have worked concurrently on Epic Missions for months now: One team consisted entirely of programmers, the other of content developers.
