Dust 514 Launches May 14
From the creators of EVE Online, CCP Games has announced Dust 514, a free-to-play first-person MMO shooter. The game will be free to download exclusively on PSN for PlayStation 3 consoles.
The game is essentially an extension of the EVE Universe with full integration of New Eden, a setting in EVE Online. Gamers will take the reigns as an intergalactic mercenary battling in gigantic arenas. Players will need to coordinate with a multitude of ground troupes and starship pilots to call in orbital strikes.
“Reaching this point has required many years, hundreds of CCP employees, and the engagement of millions of players who contributed fantastic feedback during the beta process,” said Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, CEO of CCP. “Now we start the real journey, which, decades from now, we will look back on with astonishment at all we accomplished. The EVE Universe will outlive us all.”
Dust 514 will launch on PSN on May 14 and will be completely free to download/play.
