Dust 514 is a console-based hybrid MMO/FPS set within the Eve universe featuring first-person shooter and RTS-style gameplay, and will interact with CCP’s MMO EVE Online.

This interplay between the two games opens the EVE universe to console gamers and gives them a chance to become part of one of the most massive cooperative play and social experiences ever.

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.

On May 6, 2013 CCP Games will celebrate Eve Online's 10 anniversary with the Dust 514 Uprising build, bringing new features to the mercenaries of New Eden!


“We reached a momentous milestone in January when DUST 514 and EVE Online became one and formed the largest single-shard MMO universe in the world,” said Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, CEO of CCP.  “Now our teams will continue to lay down more tracks between EVE Online and DUST 514 which will then be galvanized by our players every step of the way, inspiring us to go ever further. Uprising brings new features to drive meaningful human interaction, beautiful new visuals to astound, and increased ease of use, an important step in the journey.”

The Uprising update for DUST 514 is focused on these core features:

  • Planetary Conquest: Take over the galaxy one world at a time!  Player corporations can own and manage planetary districts in the EVE Online universe. Every battle matters and the fates of hundreds of thousands of gamers and the wealth of their massive corporations are constantly at stake.
  • Graphic enhancement: The overall visual experience of DUST 514 is improved and enhanced by an optimized graphics engine. The maps and environments of DUST 514 are sharper, faster, and better than ever.
  • Accessibility: The improved user experience is cleaner and easier, getting players into the action quickly.
  • New content:  Uprising extends the DUST 514 gameplay experience with new battlegrounds and gameplay modes and expands your arsenal with brand new weapons, gear, and equipment for every situation.
