Eve Online developer CCP Games has announced that their upcoming online first-person shooter Dust 514 will be a free-to-play PlayStation 3 exclusive. Dust is set in and shares the Eve universe, allowing players to wage war in team-based combat on thousands of different planets. Combat will also be coordinate with Eve pilots as factions defend and expand their empires. The first hands-on demonstration will take place at CCP’s Eve Fanfest in Reykjavik, Iceland (March 22-24). All attendees will receive invitations to the closed private trial, which will kick off in December and “be organically expanding throughout the beta period,” with the final launch scheduled for later this year.
“DUST 514 has everything you could want in a shooter: thrilling gameplay, spectacular graphics and an incredible strategic depth that comes from sharing the living universe of EVE Online,” said CCP CEO Hilmar Pétursson. “DUST 514 embodies the passion and creativity the world has come to expect from CCP, and we think PlayStation 3 owners will be amazed at the opportunity to play such a groundbreaking new game of this caliber for free.”
