A new event has gone live in EVE Online called the Shadow of the Serpent. During the event, players will be investigating a new type of capital ships being built in the Serpentis region. During battle, players will be able to grab Serpentis pirate salvage that can yield Serpentis-themed ships, skins and implants.
Shadow of the Serpent is described as:
The latest EVE Online release has brought lots of game improvements and the latest massive in-game event, the Shadow of the Serpent, where CONCORD has declared newly revealed Serpentis pirate sites as freely salvageable for great rewards if defeated.
As reports of a new breed of capital ships under construction in the Serpentis home region of Fountain reach critical levels, threatened organizations take action.
The Scope Network now acts as a broker between capsuleers and powerful empire corporations in New Eden. The dawn of a new age promising great opportunities is on the horizon, new challenges and new rewards for loyal and capable pilots.
