CCP Games, developer and publisher of the massively popular space-based MMORPG Eve Online, has shared information regarding the game’s next expansion.

Into the Abyss, Eve Online’s 37th free expansion, will feature a new NPC faction known as the Triglaivan Collective. They’ll be located in newly designed Abyssal Deadspace pockets, an extremely dangerous region featuring harvestable resources for constructing new offensive and defensive weaponry.

News of the expansion came during a keynote presentation at CCP Games’ annual Eve Fanfest convention. It’s here that CEO Hilmar Veigar Pétursson also shared some new information about Project Nova, CCP’s mysterious FPS.

As Kotaku highlights, Project Nova will be set in the same universe as Eve Online although it won’t share a connection with Eve Online’s game servers. A follow-up to the free-to-play FPS Dust 514 which was shut down in 2016, the game will be a dedicated PC title (Dust 514, if you recall, was a PlayStation 3 exclusive).

Into the Abyss is set to arrive on May 29 in celebration of the game’s 15th anniversary.

Eve Fanfest runs through April 14 in Harpa, Reykjavik, Iceland. If you’re interested in the latest news from the show but can’t make it out to Iceland, most of the event’s panels stream live over on CCP’s Twitch channel.

I really wish I could get into this game.... but it's just so MASSIVE.... I should find a discord and get some help but I never seem to have enough time to play these days.

Doing everything in the game is not recommended anyway, you'll never have enough time.
Just focus on a thing or 2 with both your gameplay and skill training and you'll do much better. As for discord, there are multiple places you can talk about eve, but I recommend talking in the in-game rookie chat and asking about beginner friendly corporations. They'll form rookie fleets to fly around and enjoy the game and also give free stuff (some corporations also have discord channels and use mics if you want).

It was a great game, fun to watch it develop and be part of. But I feel out-dated whenever I fire up my account on occasion and don't have enough time anymore to get into the social aspect.

The last time I played I stole some gas from a wormhole, performed some petty acts of piracy and stopped playing a short while later.
