EVE Online: Tyrannis Release Moved To May 26
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
CCP Games has announced that Tyrannis, the upcoming expansion for EVE: Online has been delayed until May 26, with some Planetary Command Center features delayed until June 8. The expansion will feature the ability to harvest minerals from planets, updates to its EVE Gate social networking elements, and a variety of other optimizations and improvements.
In our regression testing, we have identified scalability issues with the Planetary Interaction feature, which led to code refactoring that then needed further testing before being launched to Tranquility. Planetary Interaction is a unique feature in the sense that it is available to almost all players in the game providing opportunity for manufacturing for the masses, so ensuring that it runs smoothly on our cluster is of great importance to all.Visit the page below to read more.
EVE Online Expansion Delayed
On release, you will be able to view resources on planets, buy and train skills pertaining to Planetary Interaction, discuss your options with your corporation and allied corporations and scout out the planets. We will be releasing a tutorial video in advance of the expansion deployment to help you learn the system as well, but actual manufacturing and extraction of commodities will only be available when we seed the Planetary Command Centers. We are giving players two weeks to familiarize themselves and make their decisions. During that time, our engineering team will be working behind the scenes to test and ensure stellar performance of said Command Centers. Mark your calendars: the great land rush begins when Tranquility opens after our normal downtime on June 8, 2010.
EVE Gate will also be released on May 26th, with its web access to EVE Mail, Calendar and revamped contacts, both in-game and on the web.
