Dust 514 closed beta
« on: June 28, 2012, 02:20:52 AM »
I got the closed beta the other day, and was able to mess with it for a couple of hours.  The gameplay feels solid, but the more far-reaching aspects of the game are not up yet.  Can't say much beyond that, due to the NDA.

As more major milestones are reached (or if I see anything related to WoD development possibilities), I'll post it here.

I'm slightly late on this one, but...

About a week ago the Dust beta server was linked to the Singularity (test) server in Eve.  Game mechanics that allow interactions between the communities are still fairly limited.  None of this affects the "real" game world yet since they are still the test servers for the two games.

Dust appears to be gathering on this game.

Is DUST even certain to meet its 2012 launch window? Because realistically, WOD will only become the primary concern once this project no longer requires full attention, something thatll likely only be true several months after it's launch.

CCP still seems to think so.  http://www.dust514.com/game/faq/ :
 
"When is DUST 514 coming out?

DUST 514 will be launching later this year, exclusively on PlayStation®3."

Also, apparently there's a new slim PSP coming out that will be bundled with two games, one of them being DUST514 (with $30 dollars of Aurum), which is supposed to be out in 4 days (Sept. 25th).

Nothing else has been released from Chris McDonough.  Good news is that in 6-9 days we will maybe get some more tidbits about the MMO.

"Tabletop World of Darkness fan event in Atlanta! We will be there with some VERY brief MMO updates!"  I don't expect much, the limelight is still on DUST.

Just released a new video. 

(Hoping _username and Gaz survived the storm okay.))

From at least the first half of that video I was ready to crassly remark, "Leave it to CCP to turn an action FPS into a spreadsheet game", haha. But seriously, the weapons they showed look... well, not my bag. JUST RELEASE IT AND GET TO WORK ON WOD ALREADY.

The Last thing I care about is the weapons because most FPS have the same weapons : ARs, BFGs , GLs and SRs(Sniper Rifles)  + maybe some melee weapons.

The Design work they did on that game looks solid as ever.

Any word from Skyra?

Well, this page came up mainly blank so I went back a page.  The very first post (by Sig) says (referring to "World of darkness") as "coming soon".  Dated 2010.   Brought a smile to me old face it did.   :vampsmile:

If the weapons don't feel right, nothing else matters in an FPS. They're what you're using 99% of the time spent playing. Going way back to the original Unreal, the world was gorgeous, but the weapons were odd and didn't feel like they had any punch to them, so Quake 2 kept well ahead.

Who knows, DUST  may have some great weapons, but it doesn't mean anything to me (other than hoping they don't fail miserably because that would definitely hurt the WOD mmo's chances) because I don't have a PS3 anyway and I never will. Planetside 2, however... just found out that's going to be F2P too! O_o

So...third person in lobby, first person in action?

Kind of an odd setup, to me anyways.

Nonetheless, hope it works out.
If you put your head to a pipe, you can always hear ringing.  But whether it's the pipe or your head that's ringing is the question.

It's more of an open beta than a closed beta now.  Its servers run 24/7, aside from the 15 minute downtime every day.  It is linked to the Eve's "Singularity" test server, though interactions are still pretty limited between the two games.  I think a 2012 launch is still doable, though I wouldn't be surprised if it was delayed a couple months into next year.

What about a PC version?
