Nova’s story follows on from that of Dust, with the latter’s elite clone mercenaries resurrected to fight the old Eve faction Samsha’s Nation, a rogue religious state. Samsha’s Nation hasn’t been used as
Eve content since 2013 – it represents one of many backstory elements CCP might return to through Nova. Seemingly told via intermission cutscenes, the game’s campaign will introduce a new corporation, Aegis, and may ultimately take players back to
Eve planets, though this is strictly a possibility for after launch. While there’s little in-game storytelling, matches also follow a Titanfall
esque narrative structure, with players contesting points and holding them for a period before rushing to an exfiltration point.
