DUST 514 Keynote just ended and here is the rundown of it! What we found out new from it and what you can expect later to come:
I must have this game. I don't care how much it costs. I don't care who I have to cut for it. I must have this game.
By the way, Orbital Strike in DUST 514 demoed: http://n4g.com/news/966260/...
Agreed, but that's the best part is, ITS FREE! or at least its supposed to be. I can't wait. I want a release date!
It is f2p, but you bet your house there will be things to buy, just optional.
they already announced all that. There is supposed to be microtransations that are split into two catagories One is points bought with real money and one is points earned in game. Some of the in stuff bought with in game credit can be bought with real money if you dont want to just put the time in. However they have announced that any of the purchaseable item are not supposed to give you any sort of unfair advantage. We'll see i guess. sounds interesting to say the least.
Wow Dust514 is sounding more awesome with more info being released...
More notes that is not included: In addition to the DUST+EVE link, there will be game modes for people that just want to hop online and shoot things. The game will have team death match modes, as well as conquest and skirmish. DUST players can buy items with ISK or with Aurum. Aurum can be purchased via the PlayStation store. CCP were quick to emphasise that DUST will not be "Pay 2 Win" - you won't be able to purchase anything with Aur that gives you an advantage over players that only use ISK.
Although I like the F2P element, I hope it doesn't have a pay to win mentality like alot of F2P FPS nowadays.
Don't hold me to this, but from the last statement they made it works like this. You pay £20 to download the game, and then you're awarded £20 worth of credits to pay for for your stuff in the game. You're basically paying for the installment and getting the game free to use it on. How that's going to inflate the price of unlockables I don't know, and I see it being a problem, but after the initial £20 for the game/credits, anything you buy with your real money won't provide an advantage over what you could get with the ingame credits you win in each game. Buying through PSN is just shortcutting the semi-grind of nowadays shooters to get the stuff you want.
I'm getting me a PS3 for this, setting it right up next to my PC. Damn that demo looked AWESOME!!!!
game play looked good read somwhere that some of the dust team members worked for dice before and it defantly reminds me of battlefield, can't wait
This is the kind of innovation I love. Cannot wait.
This game is beginning to sound alot better than I thought... now if only they could fix the "Aim down scope" affect and make it look more realistic.
