Eve Echoes update - October 21

Find out all the details on every Eve Echoes update

Eve Echoes is a massive game, so it’s no wonder that it needs a massive amount of content to keep it alive. Each Eve Echoes update introduces new features to the sci-fi MMORPG, but they also apply vital bug fixes, solving issues which are sometimes detrimental to player progress. Updates make games better for everyone, so that’s why we decided to round up every Eve Echoes update into a single article, so you know every piece of content coming to the game.

NetEase also said that new ships and ship skins were just some of what it was hoping to bring to Eve Echoes post launch, so we’ll also keep you up to date on any fresh content on the way. So set the controls to autopilot, and read up on everything coming to Eve Echoes.

If you enjoy this article, be sure to check out our Eve Echoes guide and Eve Echoes race list, to help in the early game. We also have some Eve Echoes mining tips for making money, and an Eve Echoes ship list so you can find your perfect spacecraft!

here is the latest eve echoes update:

eve echoes update: october 21

  • Adds new option to download the additional game data required for the test server
  • Improves event page presentation
  • Adds a criminal option to the filter in overview customisation
  • Improves the performance of the game engine
  • Changes the format of the skill training timer
  • Fixes the issue where only four characters are displayed when creating Corporation name

Short and sweet! You can find these patch notes and others on the Eve Echoes website.

Eve Echoes update: reassign your skills

NetEase has revealed a new feature which lets you reassign your in-game xp. Basically, you reset your skills and are rewarded with the corresponding amount of skill points to spend, meaning you can completely re-define your character and in-game career. The only downside is that this ability costs Plex, so if you want to be able to use it, you are going to have to spend some actual money. After recently introducing the ability to change how your character looks, this is another nice touch for re-defining yourself and your playstyle in Eve Echoes.

eve echoes update: september 24

During its weekly maintenance on September 24, Eve Echoes is receiving a variety of changes to autopilot, the market, and to anomalies, amongst other things. Here’s the important stuff:

  • Since the base mechanics in the High-Sec areas were widely exploited, the chance for players to see the Scout and Inquisitor has now been reduced for Level 1-3 bases
  • While on autopilot, busy systems will be avoided
  • The Trade Lock won’t be triggered for account contracts which are under the same account
  • If the player loses connection in a Cosmic Anomaly, the ship will try to warp out
  • Improved AI pirate’s target-switching efficiency
  • Added a limit to the number of module special effects that can be shown in the same scene
  • Guest accounts are now banned from transactions or transferring supplies. They will need to link their accounts before using these feature
  • Added warning confirmation for locking allies
  • Players will receive a confirmation when their autopilot route includes low-sec or dangerous system in the navigation
  • Added stages 8 and 9 to Advanced Missions
  • Added an option on the Fleet page to enable/disable equal bounty distribution among fleet members
  • Added a feature for issuing maintenance support rewards
  • Players’ choice of transportation from their previous order will be remembered for their next order
  • Added a portal for selling PLEX on the Market page
  • After completing the Pilot Cultivation Program, players can enable monthly cumulative log-in rewards
  • Added notification to let players know when they forget to load their shipping containers
  • Player can change their name and avatar
  • Corporation are allowed to change logo, name and Corporation Ticker
  • Estimated price will display in the Market list

For the full list of implementations, check out the patch notes section on the Eve Echoes website.

eve echoes update: autopilot vote

Following feedback around the changes implemented to autopilot, NetEase has released a survey letting players choose their stance. There are three options in the survey which will help determine the future of autopilot in Eve Echoes:

  • Retain the current setup. Players should expect risks when venturing into low-sec and null-sec systems
  • Increase the power and range of the low-sec system stargate guns, and enable the stargate guns to disrupt warp (criminals cannot jump). There is a price to attacking others, and only the boldest (possibly craziest) pilots will consider attacking other players here. We will also optimize the ability for space stations to protect as well
  • Based on option 2, in the future, a Sovereign will be able to choose what type of guns a nullsec stargate has. Enhance overall security near stargates by further enhancing the firepower of gate guns (includes high, low and nullsec systems). These changes will enable the surrounding areas around stargates to become safe zones (PVP still not allowed in high-sec). For this, however, gate guns near nullsec systems require the Sovereign’s installation after our Sovereignty update is released (DETAILS COMING SOON)

You can also suggest your own solution in the survey. It is likely that this survey will be used to determine the future of autopilot in Eve Echoes, which could in turn massively affect the game’s PvP elements. If you want to take part, find the survey here.
