Sony press conference

Dust 514 Announced As PS3 Exclusive

The multiplayer console shooter, long thought to be coming to Xbox 360, is going to be a PlayStation-only experience -- with an unannounced NGP tie-in.

CCP Games' multiplayer shooter ties into its long-running space MMO Eve Online, and will impact the player-driven galactic politics of that game in some to-be-detailed fashion.

The tagline is "one world, one war." This is a crazily ambitious project, and I can't wait to learn more about it later this week here at E3. The trailer shown at Sony's press conference is a visually impressive piece of video work -- that has no information whatsoever on gameplay.

I'll have much more after I have a chance to meet with CCP here. Keep an eye on the site for the latest.

Dust 514 is scheduled to enter closed beta toward the end of this year, with a spring 2012 release.
