CCP Games today released a 12-month development roadmap for EVE Online, which will celebrate the MMO’s 20th anniversary in 2023 with two new expansions and the launch of Microsoft Excel integration planned for May.
“2022 was a great year for EVE, but 2023 will be monumental. As we enter EVE’s majestic third decade, our roadmap only scratches the surface of what we have in the works. We will continue to evolve the future of space battles with two expansions coming later this year, bringing a wealth of new events, content and features for players and our incredible community to look forward to.” Creative Director Bergur Finnbogason, CCP
Pilots can look forward to two major content expansions in 2023. Building on the dynamic narrative introduced in the Uprising expansion, the upcoming content updates will offer fresh storylines, new features, and invigorating events centered around New Eden. Starting with the Direct Enlistment feature, rolling out in Q1 2023, players will be able to seamlessly participate in Factional Warfare events without leaving their corporations or alliance partners. More updates to the EVE Evolved initiative and the Factional Warfare system will be available in the coming months.
In partnership with Microsoft, an Omega subscription will allow you to import data directly from the EVE API into Microsoft Excel using a native Excel plugin when the feature launches in May. The Excel Compatibility based on the EVE Fanfest 2022 introduced, allows you to access and calculate everything from profit margins to battle strategies, making daily EVE operations easier to execute. Eager pilots can apply to participate in the closed beta starting in late January.
