EVE’s Project Legion Scrapped, New FPS Coming

EVE Online developers CCP are working on a new FPS spin-off from their space MMO for PC. No, not Dust 514. No, not Project Legion - but that's closer. You know, I'd forgotten that they even announced Project Legion, as we haven't heard much since May 2014. CCP had always billed Project Legion as a prototype, though, so it's perhaps not surprising news that they've…

First Look – EVE: Project Legion

Rich Stanton is in Iceland attending EVE Fanfest, CCP's celebration of internet spaceships and those who love them. He was there when the company revealed Project Legion, and he tracked down CCP staff to get details of the new sandbox shooter set in the EVE universe. Finally. Among CCP's odd decisions over the years, surely one of the strangest was in making Dust-514 a Playstation…

CCP On How Valkyrie Will Fuse With EVE, Evolve

EVE Valkyrie has caught enough eyes to populate the world's weirdest, most Halloween-friendly gumball machine, but let's be honest here: we don't actually know all that much about it. Yes, it's glittering, glorious dogfighting with a thing that sounds amusingly similar to "Octopus" strapped to your face, but EVE is more than just a series of battles. Much, much more. It's a universe of politics,…

Super Best Friends! PC & PS3 Dust 514 Trailer

If you're not a regular Eve Online player, and if you don't own Sony's LittleBigUncharted emulator, you might not be aware that the PC players of Eve Online can now drop orbital strikes into the free-to-player PS3 shooter, Dust 514. CCP have decided it's time to trailerise such an event, so for 2m51s there will be some footage of a console game on RPS. Don't…

Universe Collides: Eve And Dust 514 Merge Tomorrow

Yep, as CCP have detailed in this dev blog, after downtime tomorrow their console team shooter Dust 514 and their space MMO Eve will be a hybrid game, with players from both inhabiting the same world. CCP Nullabor explains: "...you will begin to see unfamiliar faces in local. They may look a little funny and talk about bizarre concepts such as tanks, grenades and “running…

CCP: Sony “More Open” To DUST Experiment

Producer Thomas Farrer explained the controversial decision to make EVE tie-in shooter DUST 514 a PS3 exclusive in an interview with RPS earlier today. He explained: "most of DUST is running on our own technology, it’s running on our own super-computer, on Tranquillity. And Sony is a lot more… open, shall we say, to allowing you to do those things. It may seem silly, but…

Interview: CCP On DUST 514 And EVE

While we've known about DUST 514 - the console accompaniment to the PC's grand space MMO EVE - for quite a while, yesterday's announcement that it's to be a PS3 exclusive has brought it to everyone's attention once more. So I grabbed CCP's senior producer on EVE, Torfi Frans, and DUST producer, Thomas Farrer, to try to find out their motives. What is DUST? How…

CCP Confirms DUST 514 Is PS3 Only

CCP's much vaunted console accompaniment to EVE, DUST 514, has now been officially confirmed as a PS3 exclusive. Apparently it's because the PS3 is much better designed for online worlds and micro-payments. I'm a touch confused about what DUST 514 is all about, especially how it interacts with PC players of a separate game. (Hence our discussing it.) Confusion I'm going to clear up when…

CCP’s Dust 514: PC/Console Overlap In Space

EDIT: No platforms are confirmed for this other than "console", we'll get more info as soon as possible. So CCP have revealed just what the mysterious Dust 514 actually is: a console action MMO featuring "first-person shooter and RTS-style gameplay", set in the Eve Online universe. Disappointing, eh? But there's an intriguing twist: PC and console games will be able to interact, and the faction…

CCP Trademark and Dodgy Logo: Dust 514

Eve Online developers CCP have filed two new trademarks pertaining to online gaming: Dust, and Dust 514. And it could be something Eve-related, but that's totally a word I would use were I trademarking a post-apocalyptic game world. Actually I'd probably call it "Dust Tribes", for the vehicular combat vibe, but that's just me (Omg, to the trademark factory!) There's loads of speculation flying around…
