EVE Online Tyrannis Expansion Released

The 13th free expansion for EVE Online now live

Posted on
CCP today launched EVE Online: Tyrannis, the 13th free expansion for EVE Online. Tyrannis will usher in new levels of player control as the pilots of EVE have turned their attention to the celestial bodies around them. EVE Gate, the new web frontend and social networking platform for EVE Online, is a leap forward in extending the universe outside of the client, allowing access to in-game mail and features and bringing the community closer than ever before.

EVE’s Senior Producer, Torfi Frans Ólafsson, explains the benefits of Tyrannis for the EVE Community: “Having watched EVE grow for seven years, we’ve found it make the game an order of magnitude more interesting when we give more power to the players. You don’t have to be Sarah Connor to prefer empowering humans over well programmed machines. In Tyrannis we deepen the experience by handing over control of commodity production on planet surfaces and providing tools for collaboration in EVE Gate.”

Through Planetary Interaction, players will be able to scan the surfaces of the planets and place structures on them to develop, reap and profit from each planet’s natural materials. With over 65,000 planets awaiting discovery, this will be a great source of income for players and will scale well with their level of involvement—a low barrier to entry but a high reward for the most skilled industrialists. On release players can scout out their planet and begin training skills for the June 8th seeding of planetary command centers, which will allow them to gather, process and export natural resources and refined goods.

EVE Gate is the new portal into the EVE universe which allows players to interact with EVE through any web browser. The Tyrannis release is the first iteration of the project--an important feature that encourages and empowers greater player interaction and community building by allowing people to contribute to the EVE universe from outside the game client. Initially, it will have access to EVE mail and a calendar and allow you to post updates to your contacts, your corporation and alliances. These are the important communication tools to allow the playerbase to self organize.

As always, EVE Online expansions are free for subscribers. Get your free trial at
