EVE Online: Onslaught feature recap
New Eden is in an ever-evolving state and as we push toward the third decade, the next expansion for EVE Online is right on the horizon. Here's a quick overview of the feature highlights...
More quality of life changes, fresh balance, new precursor ships and content and more iteration on abyssal deadspace are right around the corner with EVE Online: Onslaught, as well as a whole host of new navigation structures that further enable capsuleers to become masters of their domain.
Ansiblex - Jump Gate
With the arrival of EVE Online: Onslaught, capsuleers will benefit from one of the most versatile structures offered by the Upwell Consortium yet – the Ansiblex class jump gate.
Able to be placed in range of the weapons systems of other Upwell structures, these gates can be linked together to form a capsuleer built highway between the stars, allowing travel between systems on a gate network built by capsuleers, for capsuleers.
Pharolux - Cynosural Beacon
Continuing the push toward the retirement of older starbase technology, the Pharolux Cynosural Beacon packs all the functionality of the old starbase module and more into one convenient structure.
The Pharolux will provide corporations and alliances who have their own travel infrastructure with a solid and convenient way to move anything with a jump drive and includes access lists for more granular control over who has access to their cynosural network.
Tenebrex – Cynosural Jammer
The Tenebrex Cynosural Jammer is the latest in a new line of structures on offer from the Upwell Consortium that replaces older starbase technology.
Allowing Alliances to exert more control over the space that they claim, the Tenebrex moves cynosural jammer technology away from needing an entire starbase set up into a more convenient and maintainable structure.

A new addition to the Triglavian ship tree, the Kikimora is a destroyer class hull designed by the Collective for patrolling abyssal deadspace and engaging if fast attack hit and run operations.
With EVE Online: Onslaught, capsuleers will be able to get their hands on this hull for the first time, giving access to a fast, light destroyer hull that excels at dictating the range of an engagement and dishing out damage.
With EVE Online: Onslaught, capsuleers will gain access to this new Triglavian battlecruiser class hull that sports the first defensive bonuses on a hull designed by the Collective.
Built as an in-your-face brawler with armor resistance bonuses, the Drekavac is the first Triglavian hull to favour all out combat over speed and agility, adding new tactical options for those looking to specialize in piloting precursor vessels.
Co-Operative Abyssal Encounters
With EVE Online: Onslaught, pilots will now be able to take their wingmen into abyssal deadspace, with three-man frigate-based encounters.
Team up with your favourite friends and take on the Triglavian collective together for triple the rewards as part of new iterations on the abyss.
Abyssal PVP Encounters
New areas of abyssal deadspace are always being uncovered and this time a Triglavian cache of significant value may be within reach.
In some solo cruiser abyssal deadspace pockets, pilots may find an additional gate to a new and unexplored area of Abyssal deadspace that contains a new kind of cache. Hold the location long enough and the cache is yours.
Pilots should beware though, as their gate isn’t the only one into this new area, and they may find themselves up against other opportunistic capsuleers.
You can find more info on the new Triglavian ships and Deadspace encounters here.
With the winter expansion, capsuleers will benefit from a new activity tracker that will monitor and display their achievements in New Eden, along with providing context for their character's development and progress.
The activity tracker will also show avenues of further progression that pilots can take, highlighting other areas of New Eden's wide array of gameplay that they can explore.
Updated Stargate Visuals
As EVE Online: Onslaught arrives, pilots will an overhaul of visual effects around stargates, as these structures come to life with new animations, effects, textures and tweaks to geometry, breathing fresh life into one of the most widely used set of structures in New Eden.
Everything at your fingertips. At all times. The new global search option coming with EVE Online: Onslaught puts every piece of information in New Eden just a quick search away. Look for it in the top left of the client once the Onslaught expansion arrives!
