Update: Just finished watching the Sony E3 conference and my suspicions were right, DUST 514 is a PS3 Exclusive. It looked, amazing. I did notice something quite peculiar - A weapon from DUST 514 was able to shoot down an EVE online ship. Are the games linked together so much this is possible? That's insane. I think DUST 514 could change gaming forever as it's the first to do something interlinked like this. ---- Now for those of you who haven't heard of DUST 514, it is an FPS game which might change the way games are played forever - for better, or worse. It's being made by CCP and their goal is to link the game to EVE. For a trailer of the game, YouTube - DUST 514 Debut Trailer [HD]‏ CCP aims to link the game via the now usable planets in EVE online. Whilst EVE players are up in space, DUST 514 players will be on the planet battling it out. This initially sounds amazingly cool, especially as the EVE players will be able to watch over the battle in a commander view and call in support for the players on the ground. However, here's the downfall I can see. Why on earth would I entrust my planetary assets to people I don't even know, and inevitably some could be terrible at the game. I could lose a lot because a couple 12 year olds plan on ruining the game for everyone else and cause the team to lose. I know, and you know this happens. DUST 514, I feel, heavily relies on people being professional and mature which just isn't how it is in games the majority of the time. Bar that, it could make for some great gameplay and corporations in EVE could expand to incorporating DUST 514 as well to make sure they have a dedicated team saving their planets as it looks like DUST 514 players can move planet to planet as they wish. The DUST 514 players and EVE pilots will also have a centralised communication spot (COSMOS) which will be a great feature as EVE lacks player count relative to other big MMOs. It would also create the feeling of hiring mercenaries to do your dirty work - Taking over planetary assets. I should imagine the COSMOS will include the achievements and rankings of the DUST 514 players so pilots can effectively pick troops. I should imagine this would be a solution to my concern mentioned here. A lot still isn't clear yet, so can't yet to find out more. I believe CCP is to announce more on DUST 514 in two days (DUST 514 - From the creators of EVE Online). A blog post will be made for the big announcement as it closely related to EVE online. Anyway, what is your opinion on DUST 514. Are you in favour of linking the games? For a list of what is already known about the game, check here, DUST 514: What do we know so far?
