Exodus, EVE Online's 2nd official expansion
Release date: November 17, 2004
Exodus is considered by the developers to be the first major game expansion. The expansion added multi-level "deadspace" scenarios, new environments and ships, better handling of conflicts, additional market functionality, user interface improvements, and an updated in-game web browser. A formalized method for alliances between corporations and the ability to claim sovereignty of a solar system via new "player owned starbases" was also added. Prior to its official release, this expansion was codenamed "Shiva."
