The REGIS has been waiting for this game for over 2 years. The REGIS hopes this game will live up to itís potential. Where can The REGIS sign up for the BETA.

I am the Replicant Engineered for Galactic Infiltration and Sabotage MK V.


CCP Shadow:

The REGIS will get info about beta signups once we get to that point. Also, we suspect The REGIS will soon see DUST 514 living up to said potential.

I was under the impression that this would be a free PC game, is there any future plan to make it for pc for those of us that canít afford a PS3 and already play eve online?


CCP Shadow

BlackCat, DUST 514 is a PlayStation 3 exclusive title.

Still is collosial waste of every measurable resource. The FPS in every aspect has been done to death. You not going to convince console players who are very used to clicking their machine off after 30 minutes ~ 1 hour to avail themselves to a persistant warfront.


why don't you actully read up on the game instead of talking out your...

every ship will work just like spaceship, with modules different fits, faction version, It has a skill system, even your personal armor can be fitting with different fits. You can fit armor or shield tank and so on.

It's a full blown fps RPG


also you can't make an account on that blog you linked could you answer some questions here too?

I want to know if the 4 races weapon types and tech would be making an appearance.

and if PI is going to be changed to what we saw in the vid.

if you can't answer these yet please just yet us know you can't.

So.... why did you do it ? why PS3 only ?


Two reasons: we found the PS3 to be MMO-friendly, but from a game design perspective there's a whole lot of very wonderful things the console brings to the table. While we can't entirely discuss this at this particular time, we'll be speaking more about it during the week during the myriad interviews we are conducting this week at E3.

Sorry to ask this, since I know thereís a section specifically dealing with this, but just to clear it up.. the interactions in Dust 514 are actually taking place within the same EVE online gamespace / universe? Not just in fiction but in real player actions?

Apologies if thatís difficult to understand.

Anyway, I love the sound of this, persistent world shooter. mmmm. Canít wait to get my hands on it.


CCP Shadow:

Tgebbs, thatís correct. DUST 514 isnít just an EVE Online-themed persistent shooter, it actually shares the same virtual galaxy with EVE Online pilots (called capsuleers). The planets seen and interacted with by EVE Online capsuleers are the planets that DUST mercs fight it out on.

Player actions will ripple between both games, and DUST 514 players will have an impact on the EVE universe just as EVE Online players do.

Why you choose exclusivity with Sony over Microsoft is beyond me. The 360 is a better console. Period.


I obviously don't work at CCP but I do know how this sort of thing works with Microsoft. The answer to your question is that Microsoft won't allow many things that a game like Dust flat out requires. The rules for patching alone are enough to drive any serious online game into the mud in 2 weeks flat. The server situation is another problem and makes working with Xbox basically no good.

So people stop raging at CCP. They had no choice.

I recently got the EVE trial after reading some rumours about this and the game is not for me (but I love the ISK and the things it makes people do like piracy). This game looks perfect for me. I do have a few questions.

If you have decided on how many players, are you allowed to tell us? (if so tell us =D)
When you talk about virtual items do you mean people can pay real money to unlock weapons and vehicles or do they pay ISK to unlock these things? Or are you guys using a renting system similar to free to play FPSís?
Is these a tactical teambased game (with classes)? Or is it run and gun?

Sorry if you have answered these in the article. I didnít bother reading it because I watched the reveal on the live stream.


CCP Shadow:

Hey Shoryukenll,

Youíve asked a few things I canít delve too deeply into, but what I can comment on is what you said about virtual items and real money. DUST 514 will support purchases made through both in-game earned currency and real money currency.

Never really heard of this game, but definitely interested. The persistence and strong economy really stand out from every other shooter coming out this year, and I thank you for making map packs free and using the sale of virtual goods for funding. Will keep an eye on this game, as well as this studio.


CCP Shadow:

Excellent, glad to hear that. We donít charge for expansions in EVE Online, nor do we plan to charge for DUST 514 expansions. Itís how we roll at CCP. ;)

I don't have the space to give a proper discourse on the circumstances of EVE Online, DUST 514, and the lukewarm reception DUST received at E3; there's a lot of stuff that would have to be covered. I would like to go in depth, but for lack of time, here's a condensed analysis.

The outside world's historic interest and the growth trend of EVE Online was, through 2008, bolstered by strong word of mouth from players. Up until the introduction of Dominion, EVE Online's chief export was a large number of stories fostered by the game's unique, long term dynamics. When CCP began switching up game design, motivated by flawed metrics on customer attraction rates, retention time and churn rate, EVE Online suffered a great deal. Player interest in New Eden plummeted, burned out of enthusiasm because of consistently ignored pleas to fix the game's flaws; as far as CCP was concerned, complaining customers would be replaced with new ones within nine months (which was an utterly wrong assertion, as it turns out). Without player interest, the stories that produced interest in EVE Online evaporated. The gaming press has never been terribly interested in CCP beyond the dynamic that EVE Online presents; that disinterest was reflected in the extremely tepid response to DUST 514. Why should they have cared? After all, there hasn't been a good story to come out of EVE Online since 2009.

As a game, DUST 514 doesn't stand out from the crowd; it's yet another Unreal Engine 3 First Person Shooter with a gimmick involving a connection to an established game universe. It's very clear to someone who looks at the game that there isn't a strong vision behind that product. It's unimaginative and it looks and plays like any other sci-fi first person shooter in the brown worlds rendered by UE3. The gaming press doesn't really have much to say beyond the context of the press release because there isn't anything about DUST that generates excitement, beyond its attachment to the EVE Online dynamic. The Console dynamic is ill-suited for expanding EVE Online's because of the wildly differing patterns of use between consoles and PCs. EVE Online's dynamic is based on changes building over years. The political ramifications of anything that take place in DUST would play out over a longer period of time in EVE Online than the majority of people will actually be playing DUST 514.

But, as a free to play (aside from MT items), digital download game, at least it can be picked up and put down readily, expanded, enhanced, and made better over time. Still, I feel that DUST would have worked much better as a PC game than as a Playstation 3 game. The crowd that is most interested in investing time (and money) into DUST is the existing customer base of PC Gamers. As painfully demonstrated by the audience's unwillingness to even clap in response to DUST at E3, the rest of the gaming world doesn't care all that much.

Can we begin clan recruitment through EVE Gate?

EVE Gate will absolutely be a useful tool for recruitment in the future. Our plan is to bring DUST 514 players into EVE Gate and itís part of our strategy for supporting a single shared community of EVE and DUST players.

I admit I was looking forward to Dust 514 since I first heard about it. But now... I can't justify buying a PS3 just for this game and there's not really any other games I've seen for PS3 that make me want to buy the console. Not to mention all the streaming stuff I can do on my computer and show on my TV. lol

I would love to know why the plans have changed to Dust being exclusively for PS3 but I suspect we will never know. I can't help feeling that it was likely a decision brought on by what Microsoft wouldn't allow or would require for it to be on the 360. Whatever the reason may be, I'd say it's a safe bet that they're missing out on at least half the potential player base by this move.

I would prefer a PC version but PS3 is a smarter long term decision if its console only.

Dust would be impossible on xbox live and die a slow painful death due to microsoft wanting $$$ for patches and updates - the overall cost of playing would be too high.

You would have to buy the Game + Game Subscription + Xbox Subscription + Pay for patches/updates.

On PS3 you can just buy the game and subscribe with the added bonus of playing on a more powerful console.

Would be great if CCP could incorporate Dust into the PS3 version of Steam as many people I know play EVE via Steam and it would make communication between players on the different platforms easier.

This message is for Mr. Pťtursson directly.

Sir, I believe that PS3 exclusivity is the biggest mistake that you could have made, especially in light of the problems that Sony has had lately with their online platform. Also, I have an XBox 360, and was looking forward to taking part in the defence (or other activities) of my planetary interests. Bluntly, there is no way in hell I am purchasing a PS3 to do this.

All I want now, in light of this disappointing announcement, is a guarantee, BOTH personal and as an executive of CCP, that my EVE Online account information will NOT be shared, in any way shape or form, with Sony or its affiliates. I have absolutely NO trust in their information security, and I will NOT trust them to have access to my personal information. Without this guarantee, I will cancel my accounts and INSIST on ALL of my information to be completely and irreversably purged from ALL datastores that CCP has.

How varied will the map terrain be? Being able to fight on 10,000s of planets is awesome but if there are only a dozen map variants for each type of planet the scenery will get old fast.

Will fighting be able to take place on hostile planets (barren, lava, ice, plasma, etc) or will it be limited to the temperates? Bonus feature for being able to fight on the floating installations of gas giants and oceanic planets!

Also, Capsuleers want to shot at the Dust Warbarges (at least damage them a little bit) :D

If I had my way, every map would be dotted with Icelandic volcanoes.

I'm actually quite pleased it's on PS3, sure the security stuff was rather ****ty but Xboxs are loud, require more discs, suffer bad frame rates and tend to just die on you for no reason I've seen friends lose so many Xboxs new or old I'm glad CCP went for technical reliability.

Despite the fail exclusivity... I want a post from CCP High Command committing that their EVE Online user data will not be shared in any way, shape, or form with Sony. They CANNOT be trusted with this data, and if I cannot get this guarantee, I will be insisting on a complete purge of my accounts from CCP's systems. With lawyers, if necessary.

This.

Agreed

Anyone else noticing that CCP hasn't posted anything at all about this? Almost depressing.

I can't follow every thread on the subject but I will say this. Today we're not sharing any information with them. If we did we'd be obligated to tell you so in our privacy agreements or other legal agreements, especially if this data changes national boundaries.

:edit: and by information I mean your personal data of course.



The security head at CCP has already posted on the matter.
