Patch 20.06
Patch 20.06 CCP Games

Patch 20.06 for EVE Online is now available, and the main highlight is a new feature that helps neophyte Capsuleers explore various career paths and try out different play styles that suit their preference.

The AIR Career Program is a new feature in EVE Online that allows Capsuleers to complete activities and achieve goals in different careers. Four careers are available in this program: the Explorer, Industrialist, Enforcer, and Soldier of Fortune. Those who like PvE combat, for example, may choose the Enforcer as activities in this career are centered toward PvE, missions, and the Abyssal Deadspace.

Completing certain goals rewards Capsuleers with Career Points - a measurement of progression in the AIR Career Program. Capsuleers earn 1,000 Career Points in each career, 4,000 in total. Moreover, they are rewarded with some skill points. Here is the breakdown:

  • 4 x 100,000 SP for graduating from each Career
  • 50,000 SP for reaching 750 CP overall
  • 75,000 SP for reaching 1,500 CP overall
  • 100,000 SP for reaching 2,250 CP overall
  • 125,000 SP for reaching 3,000 CP overall

Once the Capsuleer graduates from a career, they will be given new skins. Here is a rundown:

  • Magnate Aspirant Explorer SKIN
  • Heron Aspirant Explorer SKIN
  • Imicus Aspirant Explorer SKIN
  • Probe Aspirant Explorer SKIN
  • Astero Aspirant Explorer SKIN
