A look to the future of New Eden
Starting on May 7 is a new event site designed for T1 or faction battlecruisers, while information on what you can expect is limited, if you are able to fight off the Triglavians, you will be rewarded with prizes including new SKINs, limited-time cerebral accelerators, limited-time standings boosters, and special limited-time 10=pilot ‘Needlejack’ Filaments, as well as a chance to discover hints pointing towards the future of New Eden.
Then on Thursday you'll start to see a new event site appearing all across New Eden that allows entry for T1 and Faction Battlecruisers. If you defeat the Triglavians attacking these sites you'll get access to even more rewards and discover hints towards the future of New Eden!
