    Dust 514: First game of it's kind

    First let me say that I am giddy excited about this game.

    Dust 514 is going to be a FPS console game that will interact with a very well known MMORPG called Eve Online. Up to 64 people in cross-platform (Xbox, PS3) matches to take control of the planets of Eve Online for the pilots playing the MMO. There have been reports of the maps being up to 5km in diameter. Will even be able to travel from planet to planet depending on where your corp is hired to go.

    I've been excited about this game for a couple years now and was doing some more reading today and learned that it will be THE FIRST console game to use the Unreal 3 engine WITH Enlighten technology by Geomerics. Not only will it have a kick ass physics engine but this lighting engine looks absolutely amazing.

    Dude.. this looks sweet.

    I play PC games mostly, so will be nice to play with my xbox buddies.

    ...wasn't this the idea behind wing commander?

    p.s.

    fail for doing it on console. and this would be much cooler integrated into an RTS than an MMORPG.

    Dust is going to have an RTS portion for the commanders on the planets who are dictating the massive battles from each command center, the other people playing the FPS portion of the game will be carrying out orders if they choose to do so. The console is the most logical step for a gaming company that already has a PC customer base. It will utilize microtransactions and will capture the attention of younger people possibly luring them into the MMORPG IMO

    P.S. The Eve Online players are going to be mainly responsible for hiring the console players via contracts to take certain territories, not so much being directly involved in gameplay.

    Saw this a while ago when I played the trial of Eve and it really is a very cool idea. Having a game linked together through two games where both decide an outcome on the other is awesome.
