Netease Games and CCP Games launched the first expansion for EVE Echoes: Indomitable. The free update is available for all Android and iOS players from 6 January, increasing the scope of the game even further, as pilots can now carve out pieces of the galaxy and rule over them, so long as they also have the strength to defeat any enemies that cross their path.
INDOMITABLE will bring even fiercer fights to the regions of EVE Echoes classed as nullsec space, which are also known as the most hazardous and lawless systems in the game. The addition of highly anticipated Territorial Claim Units, Corporation Stations, and Player-owned Stations such as Citadels provides pilots with the chance to assert control and claim sovereignty over these nullsec areas. Citadels are not mere structures built to function in the background, rather they operate as both a base and shelter for players and their allies in these lawless and dangerous zones. These Citadels will become some of the most important strategic locations in New Eden, and the race to establish them has begun!
“Another expansion will be coming soon. Now we’re working on updating the system to support more than 500 pilots in one system. In the future, we will add more content, including more corporation structures, new citadel skins, and increase the resource output of nullsec areas.”

The stars and settlements of New Eden have already become a battleground for over three million mobile gamers. With the release of INDOMITABLE, the scale of PvP conflicts is set to explode, as maximum fleet size has been increased to 50 pilots and alliance capacity has been expanded to 30 corporations. Moreover, EVE Echoes’ newly implemented Time Dilation (TiDi) feature provides pilots with an improved gameplay experience when joining in the game’s epic thousand-player battles together with their friends. When lots of pilots start to crowd in a system, TiDi will activate automatically and slow all in-game actions while keeping them running smoothly to prevent players from lagging and crashing. TiDi allows epic battles to take place on a scale never seen before in EVE Echoes. In order to claim sovereignty and expand their territory on the Starmap, pilots can resolve matters peacefully through diplomacy, or wage war across the galaxy. It is up to the players to write their own history among the stars.
“As a sandbox game, the most meaningful content in EVE Echoes is always created by our players. With the introduction of our new sovereignty feature, I am looking forward to new dynamics being added to the universe and more epic content being created by players.”
