CCP Games announced Tuesday the launch of EVE Online: Inferno, the latest major expansion to the long running massively multiplayer online game for OS X and Windows. The update will be automatically applied the next time players log in.
EVE Online is an MMO set in future, on the other side of the universe where mankind has established a thriving network of star systems replete with interstellar trade, factional fighting and full-scale war. A “sandbox” MMO, EVE lets you pilot ships into battle, act as a mercenary, selling your fighting skills to the highest bidder, a miner, trader, manufacturer and other professions, creating incredibly detailed in-game characters complete with backstories.
The new Inferno expansion introduces features designed to encourage players towards more ship-to-ship combat. New missile launchers and effects have been created; war declarations have been reworked to help you wage war and keep track of your legacy; a Mercenary Marketplace has been created; factional warfare offers deeper gameplay for new players; visual updates have been made to ship models and character generation; and much more.
