From July 10 through July 24, players of EVE Online, the deep and uniquely player-driven spaceship MMO game from CCP Games, can join the struggle of the Minmatar people and emancipate them from their oppressors in the Dawn of Liberation event. There are a range of objectives to tackle, from battling slaver ships, to bounty hunting, to rescuing slaves from enemy ships or Human Containment Facilities. Players will set a course and start racking up Agency points for any objectives completed and unlock further rewards with your collected points.
Gamers can claim bounties and rewards, such as Cerebral Accelerators, Fireworks and exclusive limited time SKINs. Minmatar Liberation Day celebrations usually spark anti-slavery sentiment, driving capsuleers to hunt down slavers and assist in the liberation of slaves.
“The Republic has been working to find a way to allow capsuleers and traders alike to help with the liberation of slaves without putting any unwarranted burden on the liberators,” said Paul Elsy, EVEOnline’s Senior Community Manager. “To this end, there’ve been considerations of providing haulers that help with the transport of rescued slaves, beginning the process of assisting them with reintegrating back into society. However, without any incentive, many capsuleers and traders have avoided participating. With this event, there’s more reason than ever to get involved in the fight for freedom, with a whole myriad of rewards on offer.”
