  • News No Doubt Dusty Shooter DUST 514 Turns to Dust in May


    Hey, who remembers DUST 514? The massively multiplayer online PlayStation 3 shooter was meant to be a pretty big deal back before it launched in 2013, but the free-to-play title never really found its wings. The game ties into popular PC release EVE Online, with its ground battles having an impact on the intergalactic adventure with which is...


  • Store Update 14th May 2013 (North America)

    Dust hunt

    Yes, we’re late, but that doesn’t deter from the contents of this week’s North American PlayStation Store update. On the docket this week are DUST 514, Metro: Last Light, and Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery. There’s also a PS2 Classic in the guise of controversial murder ‘em up Manhunt. Let’s get down to business...


  • News Free-to-Play Shooter DUST 514 Officially Deploys on 14th May

    CCP Games shares the good news

    Who doesn’t love gimmicky dates? CCP Games has confirmed that its ambitious free-to-play shooter DUST 514 will officially launch on 14th May. That’s 5/14 if you want to adopt North American formatting. We suspect that the title will release on 15th May in Europe, which doesn’t have quite the same impact. The...


  • News CCP Games Deploys DUST 514 Open Beta on 22nd January

    Just the beginning

    CCP Games’ ambitious free-to-play first-person shooter DUST 514 will fire into open beta on 22nd January, the developer has announced. The news comes just weeks after the PlayStation 3 exclusive merged servers with its companion PC MMO, Eve Online. It’s all rather exciting stuff. "The launch of the Dust 514 open beta is...


  • News DUST 514 Staying in Closed Beta Until 2013

    Fermenting like a fine wine

    Jack Tretton must have got his dates muddled up. CCP Games’ ambitious free-to-play first-person shooter DUST 514 will not launch later this month like the executive stated in an interview in September – instead it will stay in closed beta throughout the rest of 2012. "We'll be in closed beta for the rest of the...


  • News Follow the Way of the Mercenary with DUST 514

    Complex combat

    Free-to-play might mean “social games” to some developers – but not CCP Games. The upcoming DUST 514 is easily one of the most complex releases in the pipeline for PlayStation 3, and it won’t cost you a penny to play. This brand new trailer talks you through the process of getting set-up and prepared for battle. The level of...

  • Interview CCP Discusses PS3's Biggest Shooter DUST 514

    Sky's the limit

    DUST 514 is easily the most ambitious title in the pipeline for the PlayStation 3. It takes the grandeur of MAG’s sandbox first-person battles, and merges them in real-time with the corporate politics of popular PC MMO EVE Online. After an impressive showing at the Eurogamer Expo in London last week, we felt it was an appropriate...

  • News CCP Games: DUST 514 Took Guts on Sony's Part

    Uncharted territory

    Few titles are as ambitious as CCP Games’ upcoming DUST 514. The PlayStation 3 exclusive intends to merge the universe between two disparate games – a feat which the Icelandic developer believes took real “guts on Sony’s part”. Asked what drew the studio to the PS3 in the first place, CCP’s Jon Lander told us: “It...

  • News Pledge Your Corporate Allegiance in DUST 514

    Social politics

    DUST 514 is supposed to offer an easy entry point for those intimidated by sister experience EVE Online – but we’ve got to be honest, we’re not sure it’s going to achieve its aims. We’ve sat pondering this article for over an hour, and we're still struggling to find an easy way to summarise the PS3 exclusive's next big...

  • News DUST 514 Beta Clashes with Eve Online This Month


    CCP Games will be hoping nothing explodes when it moves the DUST 514 beta onto a standalone test server with hardcore PC MMO EVE Online later this month. The move – pencilled in for 21st August – will coincide with the beta’s latest update, allowing players of both games to communicate in real-time and exchange messages with each other...

    Pay to play

    If you simply can’t wait to get your hands on CCP’s upcoming free-to-play PSN shooter DUST 514, then the Icelandic developer has a rather tantalising proposition for you. Stump up the cash for the title’s impending Mercenary Pack and you’ll be guaranteed early access to the game’s closed beta. You’ll also score a wealth of...

  • News DUST 514 Diary Details Cross-Platform Compatibility

    Breaking barriers

    DUST 514 is probably the most ambitious game announced for PlayStation 3 right now. The free-to-play title – which ties directly into hardcore PC MMO EVE Online – sees you forming allegiances with other players and fighting over meaningful locations in the game's universe. The title's ambition is so great that it’s hard to...

  • News CCP Opens Beta Registrations for DUST 514

    Can you Adam and Eve it?

    CCP Games has kicked off the beta registration process for its upcoming PS3 exclusive DUST 514. The title – which ambitiously ties into PC MMO Eve Online – is set to get a free PSN release this summer, but the developer needs help finalising its code. Eve Online members will be given first priority, followed by attendees...


  • News Eve Online FanFest Attendees to Scoop DUST 514 Beta Access

    Front of the queue

    Those that attended the recent Eve Online FanFest event in Iceland will be amongst the first external players to get beta access to CCP’s uber-ambitious free-to-play downloadable shooter DUST 514.

  • News CCP Teases Vita Controller Support for DUST 514

    Wii too

    CCP’s free-to-play PSN exclusive DUST 514 is already aiming to reinvent cross-platform compatibility with its hooks into PC MMO Eve Online, but it appears its list of innovative features will not end there. Chatting on the latest episode of the PlayStation Blogcast, CCP’s David Reid teased that the game may take advantage of the Vita as...


  • News Feast Your Eyes on 30 Minutes of DUST 514

    The future

    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...

  • News Dust 514 on PS Vita to be a "Companion App"

    Not an online first-person shooter

    Dust 514’s scrapped its $20 price-tag in favour of a much more accessible $0. Developer CCP confused gamers last year when it confirmed that the PSN title – which was originally announced as a free game – would carry a price point of $20. At the time, CCP intended to reimburse players with $20 worth of...


  • News Dust 514 Includes Mouse and Keyboard Support


    Seeing as CCP Games’ upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive, Dust 514, is closely associated with PC MMO, Eve Online, it makes sense for the game to take advantage of one of the PS3’s most under-utilised features: mouse and keyboard support. It’s great news for elitists that claim first-person shooters are unplayable with a controller, although...

  • News Dust 514 Won't Be Entirely Free After All

    Want in? Cough up.

    Innovative Move shooter Dust 514 takes place in the world of EVE Online, and although the game is free to play you'll still have to pay to download it. Developer CCP confirmed you'll have to pay a "cover charge" to get in, which will be refunded to you as in-game credits. In the beginning you have to pre-buy credits, so...


  • News Dust 514 to Premiere on PlayStation 3 with Sharp Shooter Support

    All about EVE

    Last night's E3 extravaganza was full of Move news, but one game that immediately stands out is Dust 514, a new shooter that links to the world of PC MMO EVE Online.
