EVE Online Inferno expansion announced

EVE Inferno Missiles

The recently 9 year old CCP Games is hard at work putting the finishing touches to the latest expansion to its flagship EVE: Online title.

EVE Online: Inferno will be the 17th free addition to the EVE universe and promises to revamp combat through an overhaul of some of the major war-related mechanics as well as adding 16 new modules, an improved character creator and prettier graphics to boot.

Highlights of the new combat systems include a ‘mercenary marketplace’ where players can recruit or work as bounty hunters, a new ‘war declaration system’ to help manage galaxy wide campaigns, a ‘Factional Warfare’ PVP training ground and updated missiles/missile launchers to allow players to immerse themselves in the sheer joy that comes from launching a macross missile massacre.

Inferno should be landing shortly with release planned for next week (22nd May) so stay tuned to hear more soon as well as info on CCP’s free-to-play tie-in DUST 514 which is expected to hit the shelves later this year.

    NLichtman A friend of mine is trying to talk me into playing this game when the expansion comes out. From the stuff that I've seen, this game is already massive and it's going to get even bigger with this coming expansion.
