EVE Online launches the Tiamat update

Needs more space dragons.

The face of war is changing in EVE Online with the Tiamat update, and not just because of the introduction of a mysterious new faction known as the Drifters. Players will have to deal with a new Tech 3 destroyer capable of transforming into three modes with an eye toward projectile weapons, which comes along with a rebalancing and improvement of projectile weapons in general. The rebalancing should provide more diversity and quality in fittings, making the weapons more appealing and allowing more specialization.

Players can also deal with CONCORD interactions in corporate warfare with the new update, which improves management tools while also allowing “friendly fire” incidents to be considered legal. Top that off with a variety of visual and audio improvements and players will have plenty of new potential threats and advantages to keep in mind when gliding through the depths of space. If you’d rather see the update bullet points explained by the developers, you can check out a video doing just that past the break.

Good update. Lighting changes are gorgeous. 

I wonder how long it will be until we see the AI changes across the PvE spectrum? (Would be awesome to see it in Faction Warfare.)

they  seem harmless enough… great harmonies though.

Manic Velocity So far reports of the Drifter AI are really amazing.  They are showing actual intelligence and a memory. In one reddit thread I read that they attacked one person who ventured too close to a wormhole, the person left the system for 5 minutes, and when they came back to the system they were destroyed by what amounted to an NPC gatecamp.  The Drifters actually ‘remembered’ what had happened and effectively made that person KOS.

One thing is for sure, do NOT mess with the Drifters!

The Drifters are looking awesome, in that “mysteriously terrifying” kind of way.
