CCP Games has announced that EVE Online: Retribution, the 18th free expansion for its sci-fi massively multiplayer online game, will be launched on December 4, 2012.
In addition to new ships and an as-yet unrevealed bounty hunter revamp, Retribution completely redesigns the Crimewatch system that decides whom you can legally shoot and stops players from docking or jumping out of the system in the middle of combat. EVE’s aggression mechanics are notoriously complicated and buggy, but Retribution aims to simplify the system and put players in the driving seat of criminal justice.
Retribution will also introduce a weapon safety feature that allow players to really get some granular control. With the safety on, players will be restricted from doing any actions that would be considered illegal.
