I was hoping for more explosions. The least they could've done was nuke it from orbit (it's the only way to make sure).

If you look real close at the end clip you'll see a missile coming from what looks like the planet's atmosphere. So maybe, just maybe, they will have missile silos that can launch defense missiles in low-null sec.

Sorry to disappoint - this expansion won't have any combat. That wasn't a missile, but rather a rocket, which is how you get your goods from the planet to orbit.

The winter expansion is supposed to bring combat though :D

No apologies needed, the only reason I didn't think it was a rocket is because you don't actually see anything take off from the planet when you launch stuff to space but yea...makes a lot more sense.

I'd imagine they'll add that in. For now I believe they just want to get the basic mechanics working and functional.

While I think that sieging the planet from space would be awesome I think that the combat will come from DUST 514 whenever that is released.

Has the test center started to receive more features on this yet besides the features that we saw in the Eve University video?

Seems a little unusual to be laying down a specific release date for a patch two months in advance, but good on them, nobody matches CCP's record when it comes to the amount of content and functionality added to a game for no expense beyond the regular subscription.

I think setting a firm release date is part of their agile development philosophy. In project development, they say the work always expands to fill the time alotted for it. So if you give people double the time, you may get roughly the same result but it'll take twice as long.

By setting a release date, they can plan their short development sprints and hopefully cram months worth of development into a few weeks. I've used a similar system for group software development projects when I was in university and surprisingly, it actually works.

So when they open the planets is there just going to be a mad rush to colonize and mine or whatever?

Also, is it just me or at the end of the trailer was there a bit of the noise from the opening title card of Lost in there?

Heh. The reason why there's so little to see of the actual interaction is because CCP has only yet developed the very basics of the expansion. They want to cooperate far more player feedback in this expansion than ever before, so it's been up on the test server for some time now, where everyone can try it out and suggest ways to improve it. This expansion is working already, but far from finished.

This is going to be awesome, EvE players around the world have been clamoring for more mining!
