DUST 514 is a persistent shooter that delivers an immersive experience of brutal ground combat and strategic planetary conquest set in the thriving universe of CCP’s science-fiction MMO for PC and Mac, EVE Online. In DUST 514, mercenaries on the ground wage war to acquire territory, resources and notoriety, forging and breaking agreements with the starship pilots of EVE Online as they work together in real-time to control vast regions of deep space. Players in EVE Online and DUST 514 share a realistic, player-driven economy. Every action in DUST 514 has real consequences that ripple across a persistent universe spanning thousands of star systems. In DUST 514, unlike in any other game, your actions can topple empires.
In this video vehicle game designer Ryan Thorton describes in detail the heavy and light vehicles, as well as dropships that players can purchase, customize and upgrade in the game. These vehicles can be called in on demand, can have a major impact on the battlefield and can turn the tide for a team.
As an added bonus, this weekend CCP is offering DUST 514 closed beta players a chance to "Get ISK or Die Trying". Starting today, November 21 and running through Monday, November 26, all LAVs, HAVs, and dropships are 50% off, and CCP is tripling the base ISK reward for standard battles.
The better you play, the higher the reward. So players can complement their enormous Thanksgiving meals with equally huge portions of ISK -- or, if they’re anywhere else in the world, boggle at how much Americans can put away, while also stockpiling riches and vehicles. The DUST 514 beta is online 23/7, so log on and jump into battle.
