WarCry Network has published a new interview with CCP Games' Valerie Massey. In the interview Massey discusses EVE Online's upcoming fifth birthday on May 6th, and the effort to maintain a successful MMO in a crowded marketplace. She also revealed the name of the next expansion, The Empyrean Age, which will focus on factional warfare between the races in the game.
With five years under their belt, most MMOs would be getting into old age. Not EVE, they still have aggressive plans to grow their game. This summer, they plan to launch yet another free expansion and that's where the aforementioned scoop comes in.For the full interview follow the link provided below.
WarCry Network: EVE Online Five Years And Counting
The title of the next expansion - revealed here for the first time - will be "The Empyrean Age," the same as the EVE novel by Tony Gonzalez also slated for the summer. The reason is simple, this is the first EVE Online expansion where the story of the game and its universe will play a key role, a lot of it based off the novel.
"The universe of Eve has always had this fragile peace between the races and now that's going to end," Massey said. This means war and that is the core new feature: factional warfare. "People can actually take an active role and choose sides for who they want to fight for and who they want to fight against."
More details on this expansion are going to trickle out over the coming months, but it marks - at long wait - the culmination of the plan that was once upon a time called Kali and has now turned into not one, but four epic expansions: Revelations I, Revelations II, Trinity and now The Empyrean Age.
