Skip to 20mins to avoid the intro fliff.

CCP are freaking awesome. Cant wait till the May 5th upgrade!

They really are coming through with what they said. I mean... holy shit... the integration is incredible, the complexity is creeping in but you can ignore all that and hit quickmatch if you like. You can voice chat from your PS3 into Eve Online to get updates on fleets in orbit to start bobardment, its scales of things that other games promise but never follow through. They might be a bit weak on new player experience but other than that CCP are the best dev there is.

Patch is out ^_^

If anyones just starting for the first time use this link https://dust514.com/recruit/xP3syS/ which will give you a 7 day skill booster and a "recruit assault rifle". No idea what the rifle is like but the booster will be worth it.

Shutting down May 30th...

https://forums.dust514.com/default.aspx ... s&t=225484

We consider DUST 514 one of the best free-to-play offerings on the platform, but the years have caught up with us. It is with a heavy heart that we inform you that DUST 514 will be shutting down on May 30th, 2016. We therefore will not be releasing the 1.3 update as we had planned. Players will continue to be able to play for free on our servers until then, but all further PSN packs and purchases have been removed and disabled from the in-game marketplace and the PlayStation Store. Players with existing Aurum will be able to continue to purchase items from the in-game marketplace.

Shame that it was wasted potential, . If the fighting felt better it could have been awesome.

Or if it was on PC! Their single biggest mistake.

Well, that'll be sorted next time around:

CCP’s development team in Shanghai has been working on a prototype for a first-person shooter for PC with the goal of building a great FPS set in our sci-fi universe of New Eden (the universe in which EVE Online, DUST 514, EVE: Valkyrie, and Gunjack are set). Their experience is being utilized to build a new game from scratch using Unreal Engine 4 while harnessing all our learnings from DUST 514. This is in many ways an evolution of Project Legion, the concept we announced at EVE Fanfest 2014, but without the limitations of technical debt and development paths we quickly discovered in that effort that could never serve as a future-proof technology base for a full production game. This new project is still in an early phase of production, and we feel like we’re on the right track and plan to give an update at EVE Fanfest on April 21st as a part of the free livestream of the event. Since this new game will be different from DUST 514 (although keeping many of its great parts), we will provide tiered recognition rewards to our loyal DUST customers, details to be announced.

Yep but Dust would have had the advantage of being I a less cluttered f2p market and a more healthy Eve user base. We'll see though, they've pulled out the stops with stuff they've been doing to Eve lately, really want to go back.
