Done and Dusted - CCP on embracing UE3 for Dust 514

CCP’s Dust 514 is an MMO and first-person shooter hybrid for consoles that will be set in the same deep universe as Eve Online; the developer’s long-established PC game that has become a staple of the genre.

Developed for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Dust 514 allows players of both games to interact seamlessly across platforms. If that sounds ambitious, that’s because it is – nothing of its kind has ever been attempted.

CCP’s decision to use Unreal Engine 3 was based on Epic’s reputation, speed and functionality.

Wow, I forgot all about this game... They really seem to love the UE3 and rightfully so!

“We needed to provide our development team with a solid foundation to work from, an engine that allows rapid prototyping and iteration of our core FPS mechanics,” said Atli Már Sveinsson, creative director of Dust 514.
“With the scope of certain elements of the game, such as terrain size and lighting, we needed an engine that was agile enough to provide quick iteration within the provided framework. Combining that flexibility with the fact that the Unreal Engine has been battletested by some of the greatest titles ever crafted, made Unreal Engine 3 the absolute best choice for us.”

And if you can build Titans like EVE on Dust and Corporations Available like EVE, is gonna be awesome and have a lot of patience to Build, Upgrade, Learning, Travelling from a Solar System to another and Station to Station, Minering, Recollecting, and Big Epic Fights between Massive Corps in the Space gonna be amazing.

Like this Nerds in the Middle of the massive war:

Crossing Platforms sounds good.

DC Universe probably will have PC and PS3 in the same Servers.

I just hope a good game, I played before EVE Online some time (Miner, Amarr Character).

I remember something about CCP bringing a new type of Gameplay for EVE, when you can land in Planets and walking inside the Ships and Stations.

I can't find the video, but I think is like the gameplay for PS3 and Xbox 360.
