CCP Games Celebrates New Eden’s Cornerstone Empires with the Launch of EVE Online: Foundation
Today, CCP Games revealed Foundation, the second Quadrant of 2021 for the deep and uniquely player-driven spacefaring MMORPG, EVE Online. Honoring the history and legacy of New Eden’s four empires, EVE Online: Foundation launches for free to all players on Tuesday, May 4, 2021.
Over the course of the Foundation Quadrant, New Eden’s four Empires will be brought into the spotlight across four video featurettes, celebrating the unique identities that define and connect them. Throughout the Quadrant, each Empire will take center stage with themed events and activities in which players can participate.
“The Empires of EVE Online have evolved since the game’s launch in 2003. Each one has its own strengths and identities that our players have come to appreciate over the years,” said Bergur Finnbogason, EVE Online’s Creative Director. “As EVE turns 18, we want to give these empires the limelight they deserve.”
In observance of EVE Online’s 18th anniversary, the Capsuleer Day event commences on May 6, offering 12 days of in-game events for players. Beyond the Capsuleer Day event, players can expect a series of in-game activities, limited-time challenges, art updates, rewards, daily gifts, and plenty more throughout the Foundation Quadrant.
Players will also find Jita Station’s interior has received a massive visual update and Aura, the player’s guide to New Eden, has been completely rebuilt. A full list of updates can be found in this developer blog: Foundation – New Quadrant starts soon!
