Dust 514: Is This The Future Of Online Gaming?

Play Vault:

"Reykjavik, Iceland.

Cold winds whip across a landscape of endless glaciers, howling across world-affecting volcanoes and cities that glitter like glimpses of future citadels. This is a place that feels like the edge of the world and the centre of civilisation all at once. Such a seemingly alien environment seems a fitting setting for a gathering of people united by their love of a game rooted in science fiction.

The EVE Online FanFest is a unique experience."

I kinda hope not. While Dust looks amazing and its concept is very innovative for an FPS it definatly lacks something when you look at it compared to things like BF3 or Killzone 3.

What im trying to say is that we should keep both. Dust is going to be amazing and really puts EA's F2P games to shame. The only problem is that Dust is going to require a constant fanbase for itself and EVE. Not sure if your going to find EVE players invading planets 24/7 since thats not their style at all. They're a very patient community (proven by the fact that the Titan class ships can take 3 months to build)and would definitely wait a week to invade if it gave them an advantage. Also Corporations play a BIG role in EVE and only so many of them will be able to produce the funds for an army and then the funds to control a planet.

the main problem is that cod comes out every year. I t will stomp dust.. cod sucks though. PC & Console crowds are to different. Most console gamers have a shorter attention span.

PC = "Look a game yeah!" pre orders plays with updates for at least a year.

Console = "Look a game yeah!" pre orders mega ultra killer edition. 1 month later "look a game! yeah" pre orders classic massive protection regular edition.
Even if the last game is not so different.

repeat.

The thing is DUST 514 will be persistent and it will be evolving permanently in the same build, unlike COD or other shooters after 10 months. There is no short span for DUST 514, because is Free to play, and the expansions are free, is the first AAA F2P MMOFPS for PS3, there is going to be something new eventually, and it will increase the PS3 life span along with PS4.

We apologise for buying and enjoying alot of games. Maybe we should be like you and only buy 3 games every generation.

TekoIie2349d ago

Wait so i should only buy 1 game a YEAR??? I'd miss out on too much if i did that :3

That's only because on the PC in that year, no other game came out worth buying.

spicelicka2349d ago

When CCP had a panel at Fanfest (i think 2 years ago) the questions they received showed that there was A LOT to take into consideration with this game and how they link it to EVE.
