Dust 514 is an upcoming free-to-play console-based MMOFPS set within the Eve universe, developed by CCP Games for the PS3.
Dust 514 was announced on August 18, 2009 at the Game Developers Conference in Cologne, Germany and was introduced with a short trailer featuring realtime footage of the game. This game will be the first game developed by CCP since Eve Online, and it is currently being developed by CCP's Shanghai studio. According to Hilmar Veigar Petursson, the CEO of CCP Games, the game is being developed exclusively for the PlayStation 3.
Dust 514 will take place in and be directly connected to CCP's first game, Eve Online. There will be direct interaction between the two; player actions in one game will affect the political and economical status of the other. Additionally, an "orbital bombardment" in Dust 514 is a unique feature that involves an Eve Online ship firing at a designated ground target in a Dust 514 battle.
Open Beta started Jan 22nd 2013. NDA lifted.
