CCP Games has announced that DUST 514 will see an official launch later this month. The groundbreaking, free-to-play first-person-shooter will continue to be available exclusively on PlayStation 3, and players can join the war for galactic supremacy with the ease of a free download.
With the launch of DUST 514, the struggle for interstellar dominance in New Eden escalates as DUST mercenaries forge their path to glory. The power to topple empires will be in the hands of all who choose to seize it. The videogame’s massive battlegrounds, deadly weapons, and futuristic vehicles form the foundation of the deep first-person shooter action that awaits, while unrivalled customisation options allow players to shape their strategic advantage, tactical edge, and combat style with cunning and skill.
DUST 514 is also fully integrated with New Eden, the notorious setting of EVE Online, a massive game universe that recently surpassed a half-million subscribers worldwide. As DUST 514 players wage war in this first-person shooter at unprecedented scale, the outcome of each ground battle impacts the persistent universe, shifting the tide of war for legions of participants. Mercenaries can gain the advantage by coordinating with starship pilots in EVE Online, calling in devastating orbital strikes against opposing squads. The fortunes of DUST 514 players will rise and fall as they align themselves with like-minded warriors to make their mark across the EVE universe.
DUST 514 will enter its official release phase on 14th May 2013, exclusively on PlayStation 3. The videogame will remain free-to-play and will be integrated into the EVE Online gameplay from day one. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on DUST 514 and EVE Online.
