This site is currently being redeveloped. Although it will work fine it will continue to look terrible for a while yet. Sorry!

CCP Games, the Iceland-based company behind EVE Online and the forecast 'World of Darkness' MMORPGs has announced that EVE is moving planetside and has been under development by its Shanghai team for nearly three years.

DUST 514 is a hybrid first person shooter (FPS) and real-time strategy (RTS) experience set within the (MMO) EVE universe.

"The primary gameplay features brutal ground combat that takes place on the surface of the planets, delivering the visceral, adrenaline-fuelled experience of futuristic firefights.

Developed for the current generation of consoles – initially available on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 – DUST will be equal parts battlefield reflexes and strategic planning, allowing commanders and ground infantry to work together, utilising the real-time configurable modular weapons and vehicles at their disposal to adapt to and control dynamic battlefield conditions."

Actions in the DUST514 environment will affect the rest of the EVE universe: a DUST team conquering a planet will gain control of that planet in EVE too. Where EVE pilots are the fleet, DUST are the infantry. All in the single universe.

I've been looking forward to this sine I first heard about it last year and decided recently that I would create and run a 'DUST' info and discussion site. Keep watching this space! but until then go watch the trailer from Gamescom 2009 followed by CEO Hilmar Veigar Petursson talking about their plans.
