CCP Games released New Dawn, the fourth quadrant for the space MMO EVE Online in 2021. The quadrant is dedicated to strengthening EVE Online’s economic foundation through extensive updates on resource availability and procurement, compression, mining and more.
The journey to strengthen the health and foundation of EVE’s ecosystem began nearly two years ago when three phases were laid out in the Ecosystem Outlook: shortage, re-distribution, and dynamic distribution.
During this time, there have been significant updates to the distribution of resources in the universe, and equally significant changes to how ships are manufactured. Come December, New Eden will move into the next phase of this original plan, as discussed back in 2020.
About New Dawn
New Dawn will bring increased resources throughout the universe, extensive updates to mining, a comprehensive rebalancing of EVE’s mining ships, and equally significant updates to resource compression.
New Exploration Sites
Alongside these exciting changes to EVE’s economy, we’ll also be able to experience four new challenging exploration sites. These are designed to reward the boldest Capsuleers with capital and supercapital construction components.
The AEGIS Capital Ship Security Facility is scattered throughout Lowsec, and features a heavily-guarded security vault, ripe for ransacking. Covert Ops pilots will find much to plunder here.
Disrupt the Rogue Drones as they tend their nurseries in Triglavian-held space by pillaging them as part of the Overmind Nursery Groves sites, found throughout Pochven. Scan, salvage, and cloak your ships for this encounter.
In the AEGIS Secure Transfer Facility*, found in Lowsec and wormhole space, EDENCOM oversees the logistics of capital and supercapital production. Track down the transport ship ferrying VIPs in order to learn the location of the EDENCOM construction facility. Strategic cruisers fitted for scanning, combat, and hacking are recommended here.
The AEGIS Secure Capital Construction Forges* escalation site is revealed to players who complete the AEGIS Secure Transfer Facility site successfully, and it is fiercely defended. Bring significant firepower with our marauders and dreadnoughts to have any hope of looting this factory!
To help us tackle these new sites in style, there will also be a special 25% offer on select ship skins recommended for exploration sites, including skins on the popular T3 cruisers, in the New Eden Store from 9-16 November, 2021.
*These sites are currently unavailable and will go live on Tranquility soon.
The capsuleers can look forward to the following activities in New Dawn:
- Four new, challenging areas to explore
- The comprehensive revision of the availability and procurement of resources
- The upgraded alliance tournament XVII
- The return of the Winter Nexus holiday event
- … and much more
In addition, on November 11th, CCP is launching EVE Universe, the storytelling hub that offers an extensive collection of EVE Online stories and background information. EVE Universe replaces the previous fiction portal.
