Developer CCP debuted 30 minutes of DUST 514 footage as part of a keynote at its EVE Fanfest event last night. The footage shows off everything from the game’s lobby system right through to its interaction with PC MMO Eve Online.
While the gunplay looks decent, it’s the cross-platform integration that’s really the star of the demonstration. Skip three quarters into the video and you’ll witness a couple of DUST 514 players requesting air assistance from a PC player. Obviously this is a controlled demo, but it’s pretty staggering how well it all seems to work.
We still think CCP’s got a long way to go before it’s able to properly convey why PS3 owners should be excited for another first-person shooter, but this is certainly a step in the right direction.
