Beta Signups for Dust 514, an EVE Online Expansion, Are Open
If you’ve been into the MMO scene, you’ve more than likely heard of EVE Online at least once. The more-than-hardcore space-based MMO has been pushing on for nearly a decade with a dedicated audience, and it’s expansion into the console space is raising more than a few eyebrows.
With Dust 514, players are thrust into class-based shooter placed in a persistent world battle — that has real repercussions throughout the EVE Online world. You can level up your skills while offline, earn money to spend in a true player-driven market (that’s had it’s fair share of news), or even start up a Mercenary Corporation of your own and take over entire solar systems of real, online players.
I could talk all day about how awesome it’s going to be or how your actions in Dust 514 and subsequently EVE Online can actually make a difference (the Band of Brothers incident comes to mind), but why not see for yourself by signing up for the Beta?
