CCP Games’ DUST 514 has been in beta for quite a while now at at he EVEfest in Iceland this weekend, they have finally announced a solid release date, one that they are very proud of. The release date is May 14th or as they put it 5/14 get it? Honestly I don’t because us over on this side of the world are normal and put the date first so it’s actually 14/5 so unless it’s Dust 145 then all cheekiness is lost on us.
Either way, the free to play online shooter is available for everyone on May 14th.
With the launch of DUST 514, the struggle for interstellar dominance in New Eden escalates as DUST mercenaries forge their path to glory. The power to topple empires will be in the hands of all who choose to seize it. The game’s massive battlegrounds, deadly weapons, and futuristic vehicles form the foundation of the deep first-person shooter action that awaits, while unrivaled customization options allow players to shape their strategic advantage, tactical edge, and combat style with cunning and skill.
DUST 514 is also fully integrated with New Eden, the notorious setting of EVE Online, a massive game universe that recently surpassed a half-million subscribers worldwide. As DUST players wage war in this first-person shooter at unprecedented scale, the outcome of each ground battle impacts the persistent universe, shifting the tide of war for legions of participants. Mercenaries can gain the advantage by coordinating with starship pilots in EVE Online, calling in devastating orbital strikes against opposing squads. The fortunes of DUST 514players will rise and fall as they align themselves with like-minded warriors to make their mark across the EVE Universe.
