DUST 514 Brings Free-to-Play Shooting to Consoles as a PS3 Exclusive

But the mercenaries are not free.

There used to be an embeded media player here, but it doesn't work anymore. We blame the Tumbeasts.

CCP Games announced that their upcoming MMO shooter, DUST 514, will be free-to-play on the PlayStation 3. DUST 514 is set in the EVE Online universe as mercenary teams work with starship pilots to wage battles, acquire territory, amass wealth, and build empires. The first global hands-on demonstration of DUST 514 will take place at CCP’s EVE Fanfest on March 22nd through the 24th in Reykjavik, Iceland. If you possess the power of teleportation or the bankroll of Jay-Z you’ll have a wonderful time. DUST 514 is expected out by summer of this year. A brief word from CCP’s CEO, Hilmar Pétursson:

DUST 514 has everything you could want in a shooter: thrilling gameplay, spectacular graphics and an incredible strategic depth that comes from sharing the living universe of EVE Online … DUST 514 embodies the passion and creativity the world has come to expect from CCP, and we think PlayStation3 owners will be amazed at the opportunity to play such a groundbreaking new game of this caliber for free.
