It's the season for giving, and the team at EVE Online has not forgotten how good it feels to give from the heart. This holiday season, players will be receiving the newest ship to roll off the production line: the Echelon. Constructed in secrecy, the Echelon is a minor masterpiece of engineering, integrating otherwise incomprehensible Sansha technology into a frigate-class capsuleers vessel. The advanced cryptographic processors on board provide superior hacking capabilities for use on most known password-secured devices. However, the true beauty of the Echelon is in the adaptive synchronization of capsuleers and Sansha codebreaking components, creating a system predicted to give capsuleers an edge over even the strongest of the Nation's encryption locks. Players will be able to redeem their holiday item through the log-in screen starting December 14. You will not be able to redeem holiday items past January 3, 2011, so don't forget to log in and get your ship as soon as possible!
