On May 28th, players of EVE Online will face a new threat in the form of the mysterious Triglavian race in the next expansion titled "Invasion". Capsuleers will have to meet the threat head on in the free expansion as they face new enemy ships and escalating consequences while earning rewards for doing so. "Invasion" will introduce three new Triglavian ships in the Tech II category at the Frigate, Destroyer, and Cruiser classes, as well as additions to the Mutaplasmid system that players can loot from Abyssal Deadspace to modify their existing ship modules and make them more powerful and efficient, though players risk irreversible attribute reduction in doing so.
4 May, 2019 - Reykjavík, Iceland – Today, CCP Games announced 'Invasion', the newest expansion to EVE Online, the biggest single shard free-to-play spaceship MMO game of all time. Arriving 28 May, EVE Online: Invasion brings a thrilling adversary to the known space of New Eden for the first time, thrusting the mysterious Triglavian race to the forefront of the game.

“EVE has always been about actions having lasting and meaningful consequences, so with EVE Online: Invasion our goal has been to provide a universe-changing event for our community to experience in familiar space” said Bergur Finnbogason, EVE Online’s Creative Director. “Capsuleers will be defending their territory from a fearsome new sect. We’re incredibly keen to see our players fighting for the star systems they hold dear against an increasingly serious threat unlike anything they've ever faced before!”
The Invasion expansion will provide a new presence and dimension to gameplay in New Eden that will bring players back time and again, inspiring them to be a part of history unfolding, the effects of which promise to change the EVE universe forever.
“EVE Online has always had the goal of providing new experiences and a living universe like no other,” said Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, CCP’s Chief Executive Officer. “With EVE celebrating 16 years of strength and innovation, we continue to build on that ambition and tradition. I truly believe that by challenging our Capsuleers to defend the universe they have shaped, their destiny - as ever - remains in their own hands, ensuring EVE's appeal now and into the future.”
