We’re happy to announce that the winter expansion, EVE Online: Lifeblood, will be deployed next Tuesday during a slightly extended downtime.
Downtime for the release of Lifeblood will begin at the usual time of 11:00 UTC, and will run for a duration of 30 minutes.
We anticipate that the cluster will be back online and accepting connections by 11:30 UTC.
Be sure to keep your eyes on the EVE Online launcher and the official forums for further information on the progress of deployment.
EVE Online: Lifeblood brings a whole host of new features including new Refineries and moon mining mechanics, along with the mining ledger, Resource Wars, Guristas Shipyards, improvements to The Agency, Pirate Forward Operating Bases and many more additions to New Eden.
You can check out EVE Updates for more information on all these features, as well as links to various dev blogs and videos for full details of what’s coming in EVE Online: Lifeblood.
Patch notes will be available on release day, as EVE Online: Lifeblood is deployed.
