Following the appearance of the Circadian Seekers in New Eden, a new ominous threat now glides through the darkness. Whatever their intentions and motives are, Capsuleers will no doubt play an integral part of their plan. Extreme caution is advised if contact is made.

Corporations can now decide if they want CONCORD to respond to “friendly fire” attacks between corporation members in empire space. Corporate recruiters can choose to manage the risks they take when accepting new members, and players can now clearly see whether a corporation allows legal friendly fire during the corp search and application process. It’s now easier than ever before to find new friends to enjoy EVE with!
