EVE Updates – Introducing The Arms Race Release

By CCP Falcon

We’re happy to announce that the December Release will be deployed during downtime on December 5th, and that more details of all the features that are coming with the release are now available on EVE Updates.

The Arms Race Release brings the highly anticipated expansion of the Alpha Skillset, allowing access to both Battlecruisers and Battleships without the need for a subscription, as well as the ability for alpha pilots to train cross-faction for the first time.

With a new training cap for Alpha Pilots of around 20 million skillpoints, this release also introduces the Daily Alpha Injector, a new method of training for Alpha Pilots that allows them to train beyond the 5 million skillpoint free training cap.

In addition to this, the Arms Race release also brings a whole host of quality of life improvements, including New Warp Disruption Bubble VFX, Pirate Forward Operating Base discoverability improvements, the introduction of the support role to Resource Wars, adjustments to Jump Fuel Usage and Jump Fatigue, and many visual overhauls to graphical assets across New Eden.

There’s also a few other things on the list of fixes and features, so head on over to EVE Updates for all the latest information in brief, with links to details in devblogs and forum posts.

Downtime information for the deployment of the Arms Race Release will be available on Friday, and patch notes will be added to EVE Updates and the Community Portal on release day – December 5th.
