Blame the Pope and buy a PC!
DUST is Deaddder then Death Adder on TV!
You can count winter is coming and celebrate!
Erect crooked crosses and put them on fire in Iceland at Fan fest 2016!
(Fuck the PS3. CCP is moving to PC.)
The Future of DUST 514
Dear dust 514 community,
CCP’s development team in Shanghai has been working on the prototype for a first person shooter for PC with the goal of building a great FPS set in our sci-fi universe of New Eden (the universe in which EVE Online, DUST 514, EVE:Valkyrie, and Gunjack are set). Their experience is being utilized to build a new game from scratch using unreal engine 4 while harnessing on all our learnings from DUST 514. This is in many ways an evolution of project Legion, the concert we announced at the Fan Fest 2014, but without the limitations of technical depth and development paths we quickly discovered in the effort that could never serve as an future-proof technology base on production game. This new game is still in an early phase of production, and we feel like we’re on the right track and plan to give an update at EVE Fan Fest on April 21st as a part of the free live stream of the event. Since this new game will be different from DUST 514 (although keeping many of its great parts), we will provide tiered recognition rewards to our loyal customers, details to be announced.
We are very proud of what we have learned and accomplished with DUST 514 on PlayStation 3 over the past three years and it is an honor to be part of such a dedicated community. We consider DUST 514 one of the best free to play offerings on the platform, but the years have caught up with us. It is with a heavy heart we inform you that DUST 514 will be shutting down on May 30, 2016. We therefore will not be releasing the 1.3 update as we had planned. Players will be able to play for free on our servers until then, but all further PSN packs and purchases have been removed and disabled from the in-game marketplace and the PlayStation store. Players with existing Aurum will be able to continue to purchase items from the in-game marketplace.
