When traveling across the vast reaches of space you will undoubtedly come across hundreds of beautiful planets and in EVE what is a better thing to do to these lush bountiful planets but to harvest the living hell out of them.
In the newly announced expansion, Tyrannis you will have that chance. EVE Online Senior Producer Torfi Frans Olafsson announced on the official website that players will be able to survey planets for juicy deposits of minerals and other goodies, build infrastructure to harvest them, store them, process them and launch them into space. Build complex networks of facilities and fine tune them for optimal production.
We are not just talking about a small number of planets. we are talking all of them, gas giants, the lava planets, the ice worlds, the water worlds and even the elusive plasma planets. Each type with their unique properties. Maintaining facilities on gruesomely hostile planets will be tougher and more demanding, but the rewards may be so much more “onturning.”
As for combat on the planets the word at the moment is no. This expansion is about exploration and industry. When something goes bad or breaks it is because of the owner‘s mismanagement, and when things are awesome and perfect, it is because of skill and hard labor on part of the player that runs the facilities.
In future expansions you will be able to project military force for attack and defense of planetary installations. That will be where DUST 514 will connect with EVE. But DUST 514 will not be coming out at the same time as Tyrannis, so that is at a later date.
Tyrannis has no set release date but expect it to be released before the summer solstice according to the blog.
