Every year at Fanfest during the Eve Keynote, CCP presents the player base with a new trailer to stoke the hype machine. This year was no exception. Beginning with the appearance of Caroline’s Star, the trailer is largely a recap of the Sleeper and Jovian related lore events that have happened over the past few months. The trailer succeeds in making the Drifters appear menacing, with Drifter battleships annihilating a smaller player fleet and then harvesting their corpses to rebuild other Drifters. Combined with soundbites from the Hydrostatic Podcast commenting on the events, the trailer actually makes lore seem exciting.
