FreeBooted: CCP’s “Walking in Stations” Expansion Schedule Revealed

Aha, I’m onto you Team Avatar.

I note that in CCP Unifex’s devblog, his announcement that next expansion is to be called “Inferno” came shortly after all the missiles were renamed, with one missile type also being called “Inferno”.

Coincidence? I think not.

Some careful research has revealed the true nature of EVE Online’s upcoming avatar-based expansions.

Summer 2012 – EVE Online: Inferno



The first expansion will see the optional inclusion of open fires in our Captain’s Quarters, with a hearth fashioned from a disused Inferno missile. Not only will this serve as a statement of style, it also provides an entertaining way to delete items, dragging-and-dropping in order to make the blaze higher. Sometimes things may melt together to form rare loot, other times it will explode, wiping out your clone.

With the ability to invite one other player into your quarters, this will lead to exciting games of fireside Russian roulette.

New animations such as “furtive glance”, “hand-holding” and “knee-touching” will enable players to get to know each other better in an intimate environment ripe for some awkward yet romantic moments.

Jita 4-4 will be renamed Brokeback Station.

Winter 2012 – EVE Online: Trauma

With the release of the highly anticipated CARBON Internal Organ Simulator, players will be able to manually insert their implants in a location of their choosing, with creative placement yielding additional benefits and comical side-effects.

Accidentally put your ‘Deadeye’ gunnery implant too close to your optic nerve and your clone becomes irreversibly boss-eyed. Stimulate your growth hormones with your ‘Yeti’ implant to become fantastically hairy, or shove your ‘Beancounter’ implant into your brainstem and become embarrassingly flatulent.

With technology advancements now allowing up to five other capsuleers to join you, players can enjoy entertaining ‘Operation’ style party games such as Implant Darts, Pass the Kidney and Scalpel Fight.



Summer 2013 – EVE Online: Nova

Nova, the expansion all the teenagers had been hoping for, sees the introduction of fully customisable pole-dancers. As a licensed clone service, Nova will be available on all stations utilising state-of-the-art AI. Nova will do everything she can to please the ship-spinning capsuleer, with a variety of provocative dances. Fully customisable and alluring costumes will be available from the NeX store.

After the first few weeks, Nova will start to expect the player to be more attentive, setting increasingly unreasonable missions, demanding gifts and sometimes requiring the capsuleer to remain docked for the session. The optional male variant (Dave) will just become inactive and sit on the couch watching holovids.

Fortunately, Nova is backwards compatible with previous expansions and can “interact” with all Trauma devices and the Inferno features.

Winter 2013 – EVE Online: Mjolnir

Named for the hammer of Thor, Norse God of Thunder, Mjolnir will indeed allow your avatar to get to grips with a hammer. In fact a full set of DIY tools will become standard in all Captain’s Quarters and will be stored in an all new annexed area of the CQ called the Self-contained Hassle-free Engineering Dome (SHED).

Better yet, the CQ will now be fully customisable. With fully-featured world-building tools, the player will now be able to manipulate 3D versions of many in-game items and build unique constructions. Tinkering with strange devices in the SHED can lead to the creation of unique and marketable items.

Unfortunately, every time you dock, you will find Nova has moved things from your hangar and won’t tell you where they are until certain amendments have been made to the main Captain’s Quarters area. Expect DIY missions such as “Wardrobe Construction”, “Curtain-Pole Adjustment” and “Fix the Holoscreen (cos it won’t turn on any more, I don’t know what I’ve done).”

I can’t wait. The future is coming. 😉

      1. That's the clever thing. It actually *is* April 1st, but the article confused you so much you can no longer judge dates (a problem I resolved by getting married – boom boom). Such is the hypotic power of words.

    How to make CQ work: Add pole dancers and everything else a real immortal capsuleer would actually put in their quarters.

    For ideas, send developers to EVE Vegas next year with some petty cash in pocket… I'm sure they'll get some ideas 😉

        3. I found this written by someone clearly more educated than you and thought it might be helpful to you:

          "Freudian psychologists might posit that this phrase, along with the prolific misuse of “gay”, “faggot” and assorted other sexually-themed words, is connected to the frustration of the user, expressing his impotence or insecurity through aggressive language in attempt to demean others and assert their sexual dominance. They should be pitied."

          So next time you feel angry about something on the internet, instead of being offensive try having a wank. You might like it.

          I don't mind if you think of me. xx

    Well for the normal idiot in Vegas I would say you have a 50/50 chance of remembering if you had a good time but Im pretty sure a group of game devs will end up at a nearby Denny's drinking decaf and comparing comic book collections.

    1:09 Eve Time:
    *Bang Bang Bang*
    Concord Officer, “We’ve gotten calls about some commotion, Open Up!”

    The Capsuleer, opens the door wearing his black NEX Undershirt smoking a purple cigarette. The shoulder strap of his shirt is stretched out and hanging down over his bicep and he has a black eye. In the background you can hear Nova throwing various items over the railing into the docking bay screaming about how she new he was worthless the moment he onlined her and offering various unflattering descriptions of his sexual interests.

    Capsuleer, “Look, osifer… she hit me fir… Ow! Ow Ow Ow!"
    The Concord personnel throw the immortal pilot into a wrist lock and kick the back of his knee bringing him to the floor with a crunch.

    *CONCORD is filmed on location with the men and women of galactic law enforcement. All suspects are guilty until their ship is destroyed in retaliation for their crimes.*

I mean what better than inviting someone u need to get even with into your CQ & then get them to move in close to the fireplace while you throw as much of the crap as u have into it hoping for an explosion so the other party gets injured or better still killed!

    Exotic dancer who we can dress, or undress? and Pole-spinning the girls too? I might be more interested in CQ if I could stage hot love scenes, in the privacy of my CQ, of course.

    Any chance of getting two dancers and getting a menage-a-twa started? Hell, I would pay extra for that.
