The vast expanses of New Eden looks very different to how it was a year ago. This is partly due to the efforts of EVE Online developer CCP Games, who has over this period has been running a series of events under the Triglavian Invasion banner. As of this week, the EVE Online: Phoenix update has rolled out, bringing the invasion to its climax. As the Triglavian invasion comes to its year-long finale, EVE pilots will be faced with rebuilding New Eden and carving new pathways in the aftermath of star-spanning changes disrupting interstellar travel.
Quadrant 4: Phoenix thrusts EVE pilots into a universe ravaged by war, amidst the embers and wreckage of a Triglavian invasion that has profoundly affected the lives of New Eden’s citizens. In the aftermath of their invasion, the Triglavian Collective’s usurping of many star systems has irrevocably changed the landscape of New Eden. Pilots have joined their cause, taken up arms against them, and in some cases have been forced to relocate to other systems. In the wake of interstellar travel disruptions across the cluster, some systems will be permanently inaccessible through conventional means.
EVE‘s colossal Supercarrier class vessels will be receiving a major update in the Phoenix Quadrant, including the introduction of a new clone vat bay feature that will enable pilots to spawn new ships directly from a Supercarrier’s bay if they are destroyed in combat, allowing players to get back into the action.
As the Quadrant unfolds, the Crimson Harvest and Yoiul Festival will return once again to celebrate the close of the year, offering new customization options and content for players to enjoy. Additional daily challenges will be available and expanded upon, giving pilots more reasons to undock and engage.
Finally, the Abyssal Proving Grounds events will continue with new game modes, ship classes and leaderboards, allowing pilots to enter the lawless and chaotic Abyssal Deadspace, engaging in intense PvP combat to prove their worth and emerge victorious.
Eve Online: Phoenix caps off this year’s collection of updates to the space simulation game. It began earlier this year with the release of Quadrant 1: Fight or Flight, continuing in Quadrant 2: Eclipse and culminating in all-out war with Quadrant 3: Zenith. As capsulers may get a little bit of rest as the year draws to an end, the question remains around what CCP Games has in store for next year.
