CCP has released the Tyrannis expansion for space MMO EVE Online and moved the web-based social portal EVE Gate into open beta.

Tyrannis opens the surfaces of 65,000 planets to scanning, development and, ultimately, harvest. You won't be able to actually build on planets until 8th June; only scans can be carried out and skills trained in preparation for now.

EVE Gate allows the community to contribute to the game-world through any web browser. To begin with, this will be limited to sending messages to other players and using a calendar.

Developer CCP has also created more options for accessing the game's API, added lots more in-game landmarks and brought back live events.

More information can be found on the EVE Online website.
