The first of two major expansions for EVE Online in 2023, Viridian, promises to create waves in the gaming world with its new features and stunning visual improvements, all of which are intended to heighten immersion and engagement for its devoted community of players. The expansion is set to launch in June.
EVE Online: Viridian will introduce novel ways for players to manage their corporations and set goals, personalize Upwell structures, and partake in socially driven gameplay content. The expansion also aims to facilitate stronger relationships among players as they strive for the success of their corporation.
Empire Frigates Undergo Striking Visual Overhaul
A major component of the Viridian expansion lies in its visual enhancements. In a bid to improve players’ experiences, 68 frigates will see their visual effects amplified, including lights and effects that modify according to the state of the ship. The aim is to breathe more life into the use of these vessels, augmenting the thrill of piloting them in the game.
Mighty Marauders Receive Visual and Effect Updates
The formidable marauders are not left out of this revamp. The visuals of the activated bastion module, exclusive to the marauder ship, are getting a significant boost, making it visibly more aggressive and powerful.
Missile Impact Effects to Deliver Visual Diversity
To add to the visceral combat experience in the game, missile impact visuals are receiving a distinct makeover. Players will be able to identify the damage type of a missile simply by observing the impact, thus improving combat readability and introducing more visual diversity on the battlefield.
Volumetric Clouds to Enhance Immersive Experiences
The game is also set to introduce improved volumetric clouds, allowing players to navigate through them for more immersive gameplay experiences. These new clouds will first be introduced in the Homefront Operations sites with the launch of Viridian.
EVE Online: Viridian clearly has a lot in store for its players. With new tools for corporation management, visually spectacular updates to its ships, and the introduction of socially driven gameplay content, the expansion is poised to breathe new life into this enduring and much-loved game. The eagerly anticipated Viridian expansion is sure to bring fresh experiences and delight to both new and veteran players of EVE Online.
