EVE Online’s 20th Anniversary Marked with Major 2024 Updates and Expansions

A Big Year For EVE Vanguard

EVE Online Reveals 2024 Roadmap

2023 marked the 20th anniversary of EVE Online, a massive milestone for the successful MMO. In all regards, it looks like we might be celebrating another anniversary in ten years, as CCP Games has revealed a huge road map for the game in 2024, including two new expansions.

CCP Games revealed the roadmap via its website at the end of this week, giving a glimpse of what content will be launching each month. Although they don’t have names yet, the game will get a Summer and Winter Expansion.

“This year, our focus is to expand the core foundations of EVE Online – conflict, identity, and community,” said Bergur Finnbogason in a press release, Creative Director for EVE Online. “With two expansions jam-packed with fresh features and mechanics, players can look forward to more options for personal expression, fortifying community ties, and collaborating with fellow EVE players to further shape New Eden.”

The first content expansion of this year will apparently “empower players to customize sovereign space through new technology, features, and mechanics.” It will also introduce new customization options and player-designed skins, building on the SKINR system that was introduced in EVE Online: Viridian.

Mixed in between those is a host of other content. You can see the full schedule in the image provided by CCP Games.

As you can tell, EVE Vanguard is a big part of the studio’s plans for this year. If you’re not familiar, Vanguard is a multiplayer first-person shooter that runs alongside the main game’s events, and even ties into its battles.

The shooter had its first playtest in December, and it looks like CCP Games is doubling down on opportunities for players to jump in. EVE Vanguard can be launched directly from the client for EVE Online.

EVE Online is available on PC, macOS, and Nvidia GeForce Now.
