EVE Online biggest update of the year 2015 - Operation Frostline - PC

Operation Frostline a turning point in the storyline of EVE Online, a series of events mark New Eden, the world of sci-fi title of CCP.


This narrative paves the deep overhaul of the world of EVE Online, which will take place in spring 2016 EVE Online: Citadel. On this occasion, the entire universe of galactic thriller will be totally upset. The revolution is already underway with Operation Frostline.


Relentless Bitten Legion mercenaries, coming to liberate the Outer Ring Excavations stations now appeal to drivers of all galaxies to attack the coffers of the Serpentis Corporation and spoil his most precious treasures: implants, plans, PLEX, Skins and other valuable resources are available to them thank you back to the defense system.



Operation Frostline also adds 13 new vessels, is the highest total made by a single update for many years. Command Destroyers are likely to upset the strategy of fighting: their thrusters field generator brings in its bound, 100 kilometers forward, all subcapitaux surrounding vessels. Another new Stamina is itself an agile mining frigate specializes in the collection of ice, drawn broken wormholes as null-sec regions, particularly dangerous but lucrative. Four new frigates of the Navy electronic attack provide a powerful support to highly mobile gangs, and Logistics Tech II frigates have the difficult task of restoring the energy shields and armor of their companions fleet.

Several significant developments graphics are also part of this update of EVE Online, including a permanent indicator of the number of destroyed enemies in PvP on each ship, dust and rust accumulated on the hulls, new visual effects shields and armor, superb engine effects for each vessel, a subtle but explosive change for nebulae and star fields, new skins, a camera for the orbits and another in first person in beta, a revision of the effect modulates proximity bombs, e-war modules, cynosuraux fields and many others.

Constantly changing, the universe of EVE Online thrives on the continued involvement of its players who plan and cajole, collaborate and control, perish and conquer the four corners of the infinite. The rationale updates of EVE, it is obviously to promote and develop the clashes meta by regularly forcing players to change their little habits. Operation Frostline still take more modules changes, new variations neutralizers energy, fall distance to repair and new disruptive missile location. The exponential alteration of the size of the grids significantly impact the fighting, paving the huge structures coming in EVE Online: Citadel.

As a whole, the update moves the lines of EVE Online from a tactical point of view as a graphic. A new era is about to open, and here are the first bits of evolution.
