80w ago - Game Designer CCP Remnant has revealed details on Dust 514's Mobile Command Center for PlayStation 3 today.
To quote: DUST 514 is an MMOFPS on the PS3 with large-scale vehicle and infantry combat taking place in, and with a real-time connection to, the EVE Online universe on PC.
Players are able to band up into corporations (e.g. guilds) and wage territorial conquest on thousands of planets. What follows is a thematic description of Mobile Command Centers, or MCC's. At 200 meters in length, these vehicles represent the largest, most powerful weapon a team can acquire, and are flown by a team's commander.
Oftentimes, destruction of the MCC means victory on the battlefield (we'll give you more insight into the game's command hierarchy, a system that allows players to form squads that are led by a player commander, in an upcoming post).
A Caelus-class MCC trawls across the battlefield.
Colossal. Imposing. Devastating. Any of these words could describe the MCC, but only one truly sums it up: Control. The MCC is the nerve center of any army, the backbone upon which wars are waged and battles won. It is from here, locked within the confines of a modified hydrostatic pod, that the commander orchestrates the fate of those on the ground below.
220w ago - Today Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell shared news of a Warhawk Command Center PlayStation Home walkthrough video as follows:
A couple days ago I visited with Incognito studio director Dylan Jobe about the Warhawk space that launches today in PlayStation Home.
Dylan was nice enough to walk us through the Warhawk Command Center, and specifically through the Sand Table where you can lay out strategies for all Warhawk maps. It's all really slick, and Dylan goes into some great detail about how it all works.
Also, starting today you can purchase Warhawk for $19.99 on the PlayStation Store (that's $10 off!) for two weeks, ending on March 11. Individual Warhawk Booster packs are dropping down to $4.99, and the Booster Combo (all three individual Booster packs) drops to $9.99.
But remember, the special Warhawk pricing ends on March 11, so be quick about it!
