EVE Online Expansion: Rubicon Trailer

CCP Games' cinematics for EVE Online are always a sight to behold. Equal parts beautiful and informative, their expansion trailers really set the tone and subtly summarize the new content.
The latest trailer explores the Rubicon expansion, arriving in only four days on November 19th. This expansion, the 20th in EVE’s 10 year history, sets the stage for the beginning of greater Capsuleer (player) control over the known universe and beyond.

Without further ado, let's begin!
