EVE Online: Apocrypha

The March expansion has a name, and it’s…not bad; at least people can’t stupidly accuse CCP of ripping of film titles this time. Apocrypha actually fits in perfectly with the inclusion of Tech 3 ships and modules; the new wormholes will allow the exploration of some of the ancient civilisations of New Eden and the discoveries there will lead to the new, modular ships.

“This infusion of technology will enable production of the most dynamic vessels ever – Tech 3 modular ships with an astounding amount of customizability that can fill any role from skirmish muscle to industrial support.

The bolded part suggests that these ships are going to have capabilities far beyond what I had first thought; I was running under the assumption that these would be dedicated combat vessels, with maybe a bit of EW, or something new, like heat managment bonuses. Obviously, how you’ll be able to mix these abilities is still unclear, but the possibility of industrial vessels with a bit of firepower is very, very interesting.

Apocrypha is dated for the 10th of March, but I’m restlessly waiting for the changes to hit the test server, probably in early to mid-February. Probably the one thing I want to know about the new ships right now is the size; will they start as cruiser hulls and go up to battlecruiser size, or are they on a completely different scale altogether?

Ok, that and I can’t wait to see what the Amarr ones look like.
