Exodus: Red Moon Rising, EVE Online's 4th official expansion
Release date: December 16, 2005
Red Moon Rising was split off from the "Kali" expansion in order to maintain a more regular patch schedule. It included many performance optimizations and updates to combat, research, and manufacturing gameplay. Unicode support was also expanded from the chat system to game-wide. A major focus of the expansion was revamping existing ships and adding many additional ship classes. Twenty-three new Tech 2 ships were added including Exhumers, Force Recon cruisers, Command Ships, Interdictors, and most notably, the capital ships Carrier, Mothership, and Titan.
