As their invasion of New Eden reaches its zenith, the Triglavians’ home region becomes simultaneously more inviting and more treacherous for Capsuleers. The Depths of the Abyss update introduces new tiers to Abyssal Deadspace, allowing players who are unfamiliar with the Abyss a chance to experience it at a more accessible level, while also offering more experienced Capsuleers even greater challenges and rewards!
Another element of the Depths of the Abyss update is that Capsuleers can now enter all Abyssal Deadspace tiers in a team of two Destroyers (including Tech 3), adding to the existing solo Cruiser and 3x Frigate entry format.
The introduction of Tier 0 sites to Abyssal Deadspace offers less experienced, curious Capsuleers an opportunity to dip their toe into Abyssal Deadspace with less danger. This will allow them to become familiar with the kind of ships and environments they can expect to encounter at higher tiers. There will also be a series of recommended fits for Tier 0 and Tier 1 Abyssal Deadspace pockets added in the community fittings section in-game, courtesy of the Abyssal Lurkers player group! They also have an in-game chat channel and Discord channel.
For those who are looking for a greater challenge, new Tier 6 Abyssal Deadspace pockets offer even better rewards, giving seasoned Abyss runners something new to master.
In addition, there are new groups of NPCs for Capsuleers to face at all tiers of Abyssal Deadspace. Expect some different Triglavian foes, and even pirate faction adversaries that have not been seen in the Abyss before!
Finally, this massive Abyssal Deadspace update adds exciting tactical piloting options through new velocity boosting environmental clouds and brings with it the first ever capital ship mutaplasmids!
