Last Year’s E3 did not have any BIG startling announcements for Sony however it did have the announcement of a game that has confused yet intrigued us ever more. Dust 514 being developed by CCP was advertised as a PlayStation Network Exclusive first-person shooter that connected with EVE online in some way. Now the details of this connection have not come under clear fruition until now. CCP is currently about to undergo their next fanfest event in Iceland and with that the first Playable version of Dust 514 will be present and people will actually get to see and use the EVE online connections. IGN has a great video detailing the link between the two games:
What Makes Dust 514 even more exciting however is that the game also has a Vita Companion app according to an even more recent post by the PS.Blog
The PlayStation Vita will be able to be used as a type of organisation app to keep players up-to-date on Dust 514 news as well as customize loadouts, chat, use the marketplace, etc. It will get rid of the tidius work so when you actually get back home the player can jump right into the action.
That’s not all however, Dust 514 is easily one of the deepest MMOFPS games out there and with the severe amount of customization and leveling up, According to the CCP fanfest it could take up to seven years to fully level up your character. Not to mention that the vehicles in the game have an astonishing amount of leveling up and skills to build on their own.
Hopefully that will specify some of the intense innovation that Dust 514 is bringing to the PlayStation 3 and gaming abroad!
