EVE Online announces Odyssey expansion, many secrets expected to be revealed

EVE Online Odyssey

By on March 26, 2013 at 9:20 am

CCP have announced that their next expansion, titled Odyssey, is set to launch on June 4. Details on exactly what Odyssey will contain are scant, but the official site promises a new ‘Discovery Scanner’, saying that “Using this new system, more pilots will reveal the hidden secrets of the EVE Universe.”

A rebalancing of highsec and nullsec areas is also on the cards as well as an advancement of the ongoing storyline, but perhaps most tantalisingly is the mention of “The War Machines” — “Forged by the lessons learned from countless combat pilots, the four factions will issue forth with the latest tools of war and re-designs of old favorites – ships as awe-inspiring as they are deadly.”

More is expected to be revealed soon, so stay tuned.

I’ll have my eyes peeled to fanfest for this details on this one.

 

Really hope they rework the scanning system to be less of a headache to use.

I really don’t see why they haven’t put in a “scale all probe positions” or some such, to bring them all in together when you step down scan radius.

 

irritus,

I heard the scanning and probe use is getting reworked. Looking forward to it.

 

not to mention race specific cruiser skills? i think? everyone is saying to get cruiser to lvl 5 so you get it for all races when its changes
or was it something else, i dunno what ever it was i already have :)

Scanning is easily one of the worst parts of the game, looking forward to a revamp.
