Free EVE Online: Apocrypha Expansion Announced

Developer CCP today announced that its spaceship MMO EVE Online is receiving another major free update on March 10.

Titled Apocrypha, the expansion will bring "unpredictable" wormholes to the game, connecting new regions of the universe to the existing space of New Eden.

The expansion will also introduce modular Tech 3 ships and Epic Mission Arcs--lengthy, branching quests for deep-space explorers to complete.

CCP recently announced that the previous record for concurrent EVE players was broken when over 45,000 users were recorded to be playing the single-shard game simultaneously.
