Odyssey, the 19th free expansion to EVE Online, rolls out later today, bringing significant changes to the ships at your disposal.
According to Massively (I’m not even going to pretend I can parse EVE-speak), the update brings four new hulls and revamps a further 36 for a total of 40 changes.
The changes not only make the ships more Navy-like, to fit with Odyssey’s theme, it also contributes to CCP’s ongoing efforts to eliminate various tiers.
In the course of this progress, 23 ship skills will be altered; cruisers will be split into attack and combat categories; and Tech 1 battleships will be rebalanced.
For all the details, visit CCP’s blog post on the subject.
Odyssey is expected when June 4 reaches Europe, barely hours away now. It has loads of new content.
