After one hell of a development period, DUST 514 is officially out now. Yep, today marks the release of DUST 514 for PS3. For reals, after countless beta phases over the years, including the most recent public beta in January.
We're sure CCP is glad to see their EVE Online-inspired large-scale console shooter finally launch, but their work is far from done. This is an "ever-evolving" game, with new features, content, and other goodies planned for the near and far future.
CCP CEO Hilmar Veigar Pétursson had much to say, too. He thanked the players, first of all, for making DUST possible, and noted that the game has been a good ten years in the making:
“DUST 514 has been forged by the willpower and skills of the players who have joined us on the journey to launch, and the talent and determination of our development teams around the world. We are now poised for the next phase of development of DUST 514 and the EVE Universe. We are off to a fantastic start, and ahead is the opportunity to expand even further what games can become. After a decade of preparing for this moment, we will at last see the emerging society of DUST players begin to fight gun-and-grenade for planetary dominance, alongside their EVE Online brethren. For all we have done so far, our best moments are yet to come.”
Kudos, CCP. We look forward to what you guys have to offer. Dig the new screenshots below.
