EVE Online: Rubicon will be the 20th free expansion to the MMO and is set for release in November.
Rubicon “builds upon ten years of constant subscriber growth” and the latest expansions, Retribution and Odyssey.
“Rubicon represents the defining moment when the scales of intergalactic power will shift irrevocably to players, the immortal capsuleers,” said the firm. “It expands the unmatched autonomy that EVE’s pilots have over their massive game universe at the expense of its four main factions and gives them a greater arsenal with which to build up and tear down the alliances within.”
In EVE Online: Rubicon, players wage guerilla-style warfare against their opponents, raid their space and erode industrial power from deep behind enemy lines.
Focused on individual and small fleet activity, new “quick-strike options offer a powerful war tactic and a fresh style of victory.”
This November will also see a new set of mobile, player-owned structures created to support action outside of the safety of the hangar. Meant for both solo and group use, they accentuate and diversify gameplay for pilots seeking to find their homes amongst the stars.
Here’s a blurb straight from CCP:
“Rubicon continues where Odyssey left off with new exploration content and a versatile new line of faction ships that are perfect for navigating and infiltrating the nearly 8,000 solar systems of the EVE Universe. In addition, the Marauder, Electronic Attack Frigate, Interceptor and Interdictor class hulls head back to the shipyards for re-engineering amongst other balancing changes. New certificate and ship identification systems will help novice players ease into one of the world’s most indisputably deep games and give veteran players a greater sense of what to accomplish next.”
