New DUST 514 Fact Sheet

The anticipation for many fans of the MMOFPS or Persistent Shooter genre is building. While the DUST 514 information is trickling out slowly, a new fact sheet is in the open and we've also gotten access to some new screenshots as well.

DUST 514 is a persistent shooter focused on brutal ground combat and strategic planetary conquest. It is set in, and directly connected to, the approximately 400,000 strong player-driven universe of EVE Online. Not only do they share the same backstory, but they are meaningfully interlinked, creating one massive universe.

DUST 514 is the first true cross-platform experience where conflict spans not just two games, but two entirely different gaming platforms and communities on the PlayStation® 3 and PC.

 On the PlayStation® 3, mercenaries of DUST 514 engage in fierce firefights on planet surfaces for control of land, resources and riches, while above EVE Online pilots fight for interstellar control, creating a symbiotic link between the two games. Every action has real consequences that ripple across a shared persistent universe.

A Galaxy Of Battlefields - Survive a dynamically changing battlefield by fully customizing both your character and vehicles. Dominate the enemy as a specialized vehicle pilot, support your team as a logistics specialist or take the fight up close and personal in assault armor.

Multiple Game Modes - DUST 514 offers several game modes scaling from instant multiplayer action to massive campaigns for interplanetary conquest.

 An Immortal Soldier - Fight, die and develop your skills to become the character you want to be. Use skill points you earn both as you play, and when you’re offline, to advance and develop your skills.

Conflict as a Way of Life - More than a shooter; it’s a highly dynamic MMO. Form mercenary corporations with friends in DUST 514 and EVE Online and work together to conquer planets and control entire star systems, and by doing so claim your rightful place in the galaxy!

 An Economy Fueled by War - ISK earned in battle can be spent on the primary market, or the secondary player-driven market, to stock up on the latest gear – weapons, turrets, vehicles, equipment, armor, and specialized enhancement modules. Customize existing gear or purchase advanced and prototype weaponry and equipment for that extra edge on the battlefield.
