On Thursday the 10th of January, following a slightly longer than usual scheduled downtime, we will be migrating over players currently participating in the DUST 514 closed beta from Singularity to Tranquility. This is a particularly special day here at CCP as this brings to life an ambitious and incredibly exciting vision of a single cross platform universe, the likes of which have never been undertaken before.


I am pretty pumped for this game. One server, Spaceships and Gun Fights, or Spaceships in gun fights, or gun fights in spaceship fights!

Waiting for a Fleet up for an Alliance Operation...join up with friends and shoot your enemies in Dust, progressing your corporate influence through the galaxy!.

I can not wait to shoot a ship in space from the ground, or shoot a Dust battlefield from space....I think this is cool sh*t.

Very cool indeed. I've been out of the beta for a long time; eager to see how the game's shaping up.

Side note: I'd love it if you could see video of the effects of your orbital strikes in Dust in real-time. I suspect that on the EVE side, the action is a fair bit less dramatic.

I would think so as well, but then again I would imagine that the Dusties won't get to see their Orbital attack either. Then again who knows, I never got to actually play it much, they gave EVE players a few weekends here and there to join the beta, but after it went to the Test server (singularity) I wasn't able to connect, nor did CCP send us any notifications about being able to join.

Still though it seems like it is going to be pretty cool. Not bad for a FTP game if you ask me.

Not at all.

I expect it'll draw a lot of comparisons to Planetside 2, favorable or not. What makes me excited is the potential for expansion. One of the things I've always loved about EVE is the commitment CCP has to the game: a less scrupulous developer would have withheld new content for bundling into an "EVE 2" a long time ago. Instead, CCP just keeps putting out free expansions. I think it's one of the reasons their subscription model is still holding.

FPS games never see new content/patching that far down the line...a year after their release, a sequel is already on the way out. Dust could turn that on its head.

DUST 514 Open Beta Begins January 22, 2013

On January 22nd the wait will be over when Open Beta begins, but for DUST 514 mercenaries currently in the closed beta test, careers truly begin as of today. With no further character resets planned, every shot, every battle and every contract now counts.
