CCP Announce Dust 514 Is Coming Exclusively To The PS3 In Summer 2012

CCP, the developers behind EVE Online, have announced their upcoming First Person Shooter Dust 514 is coming exclusively to the PS3 in Summer 2012. Dust 514 will become the first console game to link players in real time to a PC MMO, in this case the game links directly to EVE Online.

Dust 514 allows EVE's Starship Pilots to for alliances with Dust 514 mercenaries to conquer territories on New Eden, a planet in both games. battles happen in real time so something happening in Dust can immediately affect something in EVE. Dust 514 will not be subscription based, and it appears it maybe free on the PSN as CCP will earn money through in-game purchases.

CCP have also announced Dust 514 will support Playstation Move and in time it will come to the Playstation Vita and Playstation Home.

Press Release

REYKJAVIK, ICELAND and LOS ANGELES, CALIF., JUNE 6, 2011 - CCP and Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) today announced an agreement to bring the groundbreaking persistent shooter DUST 514® exclusively to PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system in Summer 2012. DUST 514 is the first console game to link players in real time with a multiplayer universe on the PC, CCP’s award winning sci-fi MMO EVE Online.

“The ability for Sony Computer Entertainment to partner with a developer like CCP, known for pushing the boundaries of creativity and innovation in the MMO genre, holds tremendous potential for the PlayStation 3 community,” said Rob Dyer, Senior Vice President, Sony Computer Entertainment of America. “We anticipate that DUST 514 will transform the landscape across PlayStation 3 and the PC, ushering in a new era of shared cross platform gaming.”

Currently in development and to be published by CCP, DUST 514 is a game of brutal ground combat and planetary conquest in which the actions of players on the PlayStation 3 will have a profound and mutual effect on the fates of hundreds of thousands of PC gamers in the vast interstellar reaches of EVE Online.

“When we set out to build a true persistent shooter for consoles, it was evident that Sony's dedication to providing a flexible and MMO-friendly platform -alongside a robust virtual goods business model- made the PlayStation 3 the natural home for DUST 514," said Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, CEO of CCP. "CCP's ambition is to bring a level of truly meaningful, persistent gameplay to the PlayStation 3 never before seen."

With DUST 514, EVE's starship pilots can forge alliances with DUST 514 mercenaries to engage in fierce surface firefights to conquer territories on the planets of New Eden, which are common to both games. The actions of ground troops and orbiting attack fleets are tightly interwoven, with the real time actions of players in one game directly affecting the other. A single bullet fired on the planet below can pivot the balance of power in EVE Online. Every action has consequences, and every reaction has the potential to topple empires.

DUST 514 has been built from the ground up to take advantage of the unique capabilities of the PlayStation platform. Digitally distributed, the full game download will be available through the PlayStation®Network (PSN). It will feature full support for PlayStation®Move controller and PlayStation®Move Sharp Shooter accessory, and over time will extend the game experience across the full PlayStation ecosystem to PlayStation®Home and PS Vita.

In a departure from the traditional subscription or one-time purchase model, DUST 514 will be supported by revenues from the in-game sale of virtual goods, allowing players to purchase advanced weaponry, battle gear and vehicles using both earned virtual currency and real money from their PlayStation wallet.

Both Sony and CCP are participating in this year’s E3 Expo. Visit Sony at booths #4144 and #4532. CCP is available by appointment in meeting room #8105.

About DUST 514
DUST 514 is a persistent shooter from CCP Games, available exclusively for the Sony PlayStation 3.

In DUST 514, mercenaries on the ground wage war to acquire territory, resources and notoriety, forging and breaking agreements with the starship pilots of EVE Online as they work together in real-time to control vast regions of deep space. Players in EVE Online and DUST 514 share a realistic, player-driven economy. Every action in DUST 514 has real consequences that ripple across a persistent universe spanning thousands of star systems. In DUST 514, unlike in any other game, your actions can topple empires.

Press Release

Guildford, UK. – June 6, 2011 – A shadowy organization has threatened to take over the world and there’s only one team that can stop it: Overstrike 9. This afternoon during the Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) press conference at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), EA and independent developer Insomniac Games (creator of the Ratchet & Clank™ and Resistance™ franchises) announced the first details of the highly-anticipated game, Overstrike. Combining Insomniac’s knack for imaginative weaponry with immersive and witty storytelling, Overstrike is a four-player cooperative action game featuring a team of elite agents called Overstrike 9. Comprised of an ex-mercenary, a lifelong thief, a gifted young scientist and a decorated detective, the members of Overstrike 9 are considered outcasts within their own organization, but are the best team suited to stop a global terrorist group from attempting to wipe out humankind. Overstrike 9 uses lethal teamwork and an arsenal of fringe-tech gadgets to infiltrate and destroy enemy strongholds. Overstrike marks Insomniac’s first multiplatform release and will be available on the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.

“Overstrike presents a unique blend of features that have long been a part of the Insomniac DNA: high powered gadgets, action-heavy gameplay, memorable characters in a deep and mysterious universe and of course a touch of humor,” said Ted Price, founder and CEO of Insomniac Games. “And since this is our first multiplatform game, we’re especially excited to introduce ourselves to a new audience – one which may not have experienced our previous games.”
