Rogue Swarm Alert
The swarm is coming! Rogue Swarm Alert - kicks off on the 13th with the June release! Join your fellow capsuleers and help CONCORD defeat the swarms of rogue drones.
The bigger the drones, the better the chances of getting valuable rewards. Pilots of all abilities and levels are welcome and encouraged to assist, from the newest alpha pilots to the most seasoned Omegas.
Find the Rogue Swarm Nest beacons in your overview, set course and warp to the sites. You must then clear the area of all hostiles to get your reward!
Rewards include PLEX, SKINs, drone blueprints and Accelerators.
After the recent changes to the design of the Dominix class battleship, capsuleers across the cluster can now also enjoy a new look for the Sin, which bursts into a new lease of life with reworked geometry, animations and all new textures.
Vexor & Ishtar Redesign
The Federation Navy have placed focus on the redesign of one of their staple combat cruisers – the Vexor. In this release the Vexor will receive a new lease of life for capsuleers to enjoy, with fresh textures, new geometry and transition animations between warp and traditional sub-light flight.
As part of the continuous work to improve the user interface experience in New Eden, capsuleers will now be able to enjoy further customization of the UI and deeper accessibility that enables support for color blind pilots. (more info here)
New Machariel Skin
As part of this release, pilots will be able to enjoy a new SKIN for the Machariel class Angel Cartel battleship, which will be making an appearance in the store soon after the deployment of the release.
