CCP Boss: Dust 514 for Those Who 'Blow Sh— Up'

DUST 514 takes the prize for most intriguing hybrid - console FPS/RTS/MMO that performs in the persistent EVE Online universe. Here, the CCP Games CEO explains the concept more, including the fundamental difference in EVE and Dust characters.

Hilmar Pétursson drew a familiar analogy - EVE Online players are the air force; DUST 514 players are the (wait for it) marines. Space marines! Pétursson went on to say that while EVE inhabitants are "different people," focused on operating spacecraft. a character in DUST "would rather run around, blow shit up. That is his skill."

You see, EVE players talk like this and DUST 514 players talk like this.

Pétursson says the game have persistency elements of its own, as well as ones from the EVE universe. He made no announcement or hint of when this will be available, other than CCP's been working on it for three years.

it would be nice if they made it for pc, but i dont mind how its for consoles, and i think their focus is to bring the xbox, ps3, and pc together.

although making a pc version would be nice.

from what i understand,

when a corp wants to claim a planet instead of their ships attacking the towers on the planet systems, they issue an order to attackl the system,and when they do that, they hire clans(which are on the consoles) to war for them,

the clan accepts or denies(obviously most corps will just make their own clan with their own people so they always have a reliable army) and then the game goes into an fps mmo.

and for pc players, the game is an rts, spacefighter mmo.

the corps can issue air support, such as satalite strikes or ion cannon like strikes, and the corps also supply the clan with money to buy weapons and assets.

so while the |"grunts" are on the ground fighting, the pc players are trying to take out the corps air assets.

thing is, alot of the uber hard core players are complaining because now whether they get a system isnt up to them 100% anymore, while others, like my corp, are dancing with their shoes on their hands, because we have enough money, that and the idea is a good idea, it helps alittle bit with the balance of it all.
