In a new update for EVE Online, the in-depth and uniquely player-driven spaceship MMO game from CCP Games, players can join Operation Permafrost to engage in new and exciting challenges, visuals and rewards this holiday season.
With all-new visuals, this event will allow players to fly closer to the surface of a planet than ever before, opening up new gameplay and pilot experiences amongst icy asteroids and nebula.
Players can access the event via The Agency in the Neocom menu in-game. Each objective requires players to complete a series of challenges, racking up Agency points in the process to unlock new rewards. Players keep track of challenge progress from the info panel, and can claim challenge rewards by quick-accessing The Agency home.
Players will also experience the first in a series of keenly anticipated updates to the War Declaration system, with further tweaks to come in 2019. Thanks to these changes, there has never been a better time to join a corporation in high-sec space in New Eden. Corporations in high-security space are now more protected, as they are only vulnerable to war declarations if they have certain assets in space – either an Upwell Structure, a Starbase or a Customs Office.
Players now also have the opportunity to fly two brand new Triglavian logistics cruisers – the Rodiva class tech I cruiser and its tech II counterpart, the Zarmazd class logistics cruiser. Both new ships benefit from an all new Triglavian-themed remote repair module, designed around the same weapons characteristics as the Triglavian Entropic Disintegrator. The same update brought new stunning visual improvements to planets in the form of auroras. These are rare sights, but can be found all across the cluster.
“We invite all EVE Online players to join the festivities and bag some limited-time loot while flying closer than ever before to a planet’s orbit,” said Paul Elsy, EVE Online’s Senior Community Manager at CCP. “Alongside our 13 Days of EVE gifting event, it’s really worth joining the fun during this holiday season.”
With Agency points, players obtain the exclusive Holiday SKIN, giving players a reminder of their arctic exploits. These limited-time rewards are only be available throughout the Operation Permafrost event (17 Dec – 2 Jan 2019).
