EVE Online Expansion 'Incursion' Due in November

9
PvE play will be the main focus of EVE Online's next free expansion 'Incursion,' announced yesterday by the space MMO's developer CCP and slated to launch this November.

Incursion will bring "escalating attacks" from the techno-zombie NPC faction Sansha's Nation. CCP explains that "Pilots can join public fleets and co-operate to destroy the Sansha incursions and return the universe to normal, receiving wealthy bounties, earning loyalty rewards and high commendation."

CCP's impressive new 'Carbon' character technology will also arrive in the expansion, updating portraits. On top of that, there's talk of a "Sansha Mothership, Fighterbomber, the Noctis salvaging vessel, improvements to NPCs and their AI, new coveted loot and rewards, storyline events, amazing new visuals" and updates to the Planetary Interaction and EVE Gate features introduced with the 'Tyrannis' expansion.

CCP also promises, as ever, a round of "hardware upgrades, software improvements and new cluster components aimed at increasing game and fleet battle performance to even higher levels." Perhaps, this time, it might actually work.

    Might have to jump back on the bandwagon for this (I always say this when an expansion comes out, and never have the gonads or strife to do it.)

      this game scares the hell out of me.

      As in- when I read peoples EVE online experiences they are so awesome, and in-depth to a level i've never experienced in a game at all, that if i were to play it I fear I could be sucked into some sort of MMO Void to which I could possibly, never return.

        Chances are you'll return in a hurry. The game isn't for everybody. Most people I've introduced to it say something like "you play this crap?"
