EVE Online console MMO: DUST 514

Dust 514 is a console-based hybrid MMO-FPS set within the EVE universe. The game features an FPS and RTS gameplay that will interact with Eve Online. It will give a chance to console gamers to become a part of the Eve Universe.

To quote CCP :“The primary gameplay of DUST 514 features brutal ground combat that takes place on the surface of planets from EVE, delivering the visceral, adrenaline-fueled experience of futuristic firefights. Developed for the current generation of consoles, DUST 514 combines equal parts battlefield reflexes and strategic planning, giving commanders and ground infantry real-time configurable weapons and modular vehicles to manage dynamic battlefield conditions.”

This is a very intriguing concept if done correctly.  Will this mean that Eve players will finally have out of ships avatars and interact with console players?  For those not familiar with Eve Online, the game features a sandbox gameplay in an unforgiving space.   The main focus of the game is pvp and galactic control known as sovereignty.  There are no classes in the game but you can make your own, and I really mean your own.  It takes more time than your usual MMO to get started in Eve Online, those interested in the game visit their website and give the trial a shot.  There is a press release available here.
