STN - CCP Games have revealed that Dust 514 will be distributed via digital means only, meaning the game will not be getting a retail release.
Surprises me i think sony really really held back this e3. Cause they wanted to focus on vita and maybe check out what nintendo had to offer(not much) What happend to Adrift sony?
they really held back last year, remember KZ3, Motorstorm 3, and infamous 2 all being preshown before E3. It's just not a good strategy to have your game announced amongst the flurry of other gaming news - on top of that it takes a lot of time out of development to have something 'ready' for E3. Their other stuff will be announced later maybe at PAX, maybe at TGS, they seem to balance it throughout the year.
What happened with the loads of rumors about new IPs coming to E3, or some love for the ones announced already like Twisted Metal and Sorcery, they needed more for PS3, lets wait for the next conference, maybe they deliver some great stuff at GamesCom... O-T Didn't Tretton announced that in the conference?
gamescom and tgs are the next big events so there is a chance Adrift can be revealed at gamescom. it's not wise to put all of your eggs in one basket, and anyway the game is probably in deep development where they didn't have time to put something together.
Yea that is a fair assumption, Gamescom is in Europe, and Adrift is being made by a French developer. Quantic Dream is also a french developer. We might see Last guardian at TGS.
hm weird. I do wish this was a multi-platform or on the PC at least. A downloadable title suggest to me that this will not be a game that will try and take advantage of developing specifically for one system, such as blu-ray. Timed Exlcusive???? We all know it was once planned for all three. Just throwing it out there.
On the ps blog one of the developers made it pretty clear that this was PS3 exclusive due to its link with EVE and EVEgate, the social network. I honestly cannot wait.
BTW: How does that play? Do you have to build your "stash" in EVE online to be "competitive" in Dust? Or can you just get Dust and run off gunning?
You just jump in from scratch and get recruited by one of the corporations. You'll have a ready room where you can access evegate, read emails and set up your fit. Intially your fit (equipment) will be stock and provided by your corporation. As you do well you earn ISK which you can use in the store. Your fit includes weapons, vehicle's, dropship, armor. EVE has an actual economy so expect depth.
if this is fully integrated with the MMO, can we troll the MMO people by blowing their shit up?
haha i sure hope so.
the mmo guys will just troll you into doing stupid things for XP
We can actually get hired by them,
That is pretty cool, I've always seen the future of gaming as a massive web of interconnected MMO and more casual games, all tied to one another.
Sometimes I hate that we are an online generation. . .and then I pop in Braid or Limbo and I shudder to think what uncultured cave-dwellers we'd be without online games. There's no reason this game cannot still be brilliant, Limbo, Trials HD, Fat Princess and Shadow Complex prove this
limbo and shadow complex suck. Fat princess is also online game but you can play offline with bots.
Limbo doesn't suck. And before you say "but it's my opinion", your opinion is flawed.
Supposedly it's free to play, where you pay to get the 'full experience.' It's interesting that some dudes' 'life' is getting effected or ruined based on your success in the game.
i never played EVE online, so how does it work?
It really didnt have to be exclusive then. This is supposed to be a big game, connected to a huge MMO...and its a PSN title. How long before the game dies because no ones playing? I really expected more. @rob Im disappointed, this sounded like a really cool idea, I heard it was a console only game, and i dont mind that its not on 360... but downloadable? an online multiplayer game thats downloadable? How long till the next first party shooter(KZ) that everyone forgets about this game and suddenly its dead? So much potential and their really underselling it...
It probably fell into Sony's lap out of Microsoft's reluctance to support MMOs. I'm willing to bet the numbers weren't pretty about the amount of FFXI members that actually paid for gold on top of their sub I Know I didn't. The game was originally PS3/360 with no PC version.
@ Apotheosize I think you mix something up. It's a PSN but still huge. My brother have played EWE for 8 years now, and his Corp. just recruited me,to play DUST 514 for them. I am meeting some of them next weekend for a briefing and info on who and what they are. They are happy to see this on PS3 but also a little sad it's not on PC. More info here, from devs. http://www.dust514.com/en/n...
Forget this post, wrong place. But the weather is nice here;-)
Quote from the website: "DUST 514 will be continually developed and improved upon over time and there will always be new features and aspects to DUST just around the corner. Oh, and all expansion packs will always be FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!." ;
This will be awesome, I wonder if mag 2 gunna be the same way? But psn only lol sweet
so the PS3's best shooter is download only =)
