Dust 514 is doing something revolutionary. While the free to play shooter market is certainly not unheard of on the PC, with games like Blacklight Retribution, PlanetSide 2 and Tribes being a dominating force, the F2P MMOFPS is hardly a common place on consoles. This free to play giant is looking to take on the console space by storm on the PS3 and if the beta is anything to go by, they have a really good start.

The game takes place inside the universe of Eve Online. This mechanic alone is an interesting one that should bring in a bunch of players. Players of Eve can put out contracts and support the battle field on PC while the soldiers of Dust 514 do their dirty work. Players pick a faction from the Eve Online universe and then become the soldiers of fortune. Once players pick a faction the real fun begins.

Fighting over resources, different factions are encouraged to take over bases so that their Eve Online counterparts can reap the benefits. Player can use different dropsuits that act as the different classes for the game. The dropsuits include an assault class, a scout class, a heavy class and a support logistics class. There also is a few vehicle sets that some players can specialize in to support ground troops. The massive scale of battle and vehicle play are similar to something you would see in PlanetSide 2, and that is a good thing. Players of Dust 514 are in for a real treat when this game goes live.

The large scale battles, the different classes and the connectivity with Eve Online make Dust 514 a special game.

This game is going to make some waves in how the console and PC markets both operate in the future. Be a part of this historic game today!
