EVE Online: New Primae Vessel Available For Free June 29
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Starting June 29 players of CCP Games' sci-fi MMO, EVE Online, will have the chance to receive a free ship. The Primae is a vessel specifically designed to aid in the recently added option for players to extract minerals from the surfaces of planets. Until July 13 players can log in and receive one of the new vessels.

Beginning June 29, 2010, you will find the ability to redeem it on your account login screen. You can then assign it to a particular character and a friendly ORE agent will deliver it to your hangar bay. You will be able to redeem the Primae once per active (not trial) account and will no longer be available after downtime on Tuesday, July 13th 2010, so make sure you log in to receive yours.

Furthermore the Primae does not require any special skills to fly, but training at least a minimum of planetary interaction skills and beginning your planetary exploration would help to make the most of its abilities. You may find the planetary interaction tutorial video helpful before you jump in the Primae.

It is clear that Outer Ring Excavations [ORE] has been closely following the effects of the recent CONCORD decision to lift the universal ban on capsuleer involvement in planetary affairs, searching for opportunities to modify our business to complement the "immortal" pilots and their proven financial and industrial acumen. Further insight into the design process of the Primae project has become available, shedding light on ORE's brilliant business move.

The Primae is a repurposed ORE design intended to ease the task of extracting resources from planetbound environments. Initially devised as a deep space salvage vessel for large-scale ore retrieval from destroyed ORE fleets in pirate-occupied areas, its previous incarnation was made all but obsolete by the arrival of capsuleers on the interstellar scene. Realizing that the ship could, with a few minor modifications, be made into an efficient resource harvesting aid, ORE wasted no time in revamping the design.

A low signature radius (a holdover from its earlier manifestation) adds a layer of defense to the Primae‘s already decent plating. In addition, the ship‘s two large bays have been re-engineered to hold equipment for planetside resource extraction and processed materials, making it an especially useful complement to any planetside harvesting endeavor.

The Primae ship hulls are being transported under contract by Interbus, and are scheduled to arrive in hangars across New Eden beginning next week.
