CCP Games has posted a new dev blog explaining the company's plans for releasing Incursion, the next new expansion for all subscribers and trial users of EVE Online. Originally planned for a November release, the game will now be released in a series of patches beginning with the first patch on November 30th, a second near Christmas, and a final patch with key features in January 2011.
We imagine that you are starting to get excited over the Incursion expansion we've been working on for the past few months.Head over to the link below to learn more.
EVE Online Incursion Release Schedule
With all of the screenshots and videos of the new Incarna character creator we've seen filling up the intertubes, we can see that excitement is building for the upcoming Incursion expansion. The Sansha Incursion feature itself has had a lot of positive feedback through the mass tests we‘ve been running on Singularity and, with the host of smaller fixes (many requested directly by you!), this is going to be one epic expansion.
Based on a lot of great feedback we've gotten from the Singularity public test server, we see that both key features will benefit greatly from an additional level of polish.
We also want to do some usability changes to the Incarna character creator UI, and our artists are anxious to invest more time tweaking the assets you've been drooling over. For the Sansha Incursion feature there is some polish we want to get in, mostly on the socialization and UI front, but there is also some backend optimization that we want to do to get things to run more smoothly.
On top of that, we want to make sure our quality assurance department gets plenty of time with the more polished, final versions.
We discussed a few of the options we have with the CSM, and I think we‘re very unified that the best course of action is:
- Release a first-step patch with a collection of player requested improvements November 30th.
- Release a second-step patch before Christmas (Only Santa knows what will be in this patch!)
- Release key features of this expansion such as the Incarna Character Creator and Sansha Incursions in January 2011
