CCP Games Outlines Dust 514 on PS3: The New Player Experience

50°
47w ago - CCP Games developer CCP Greyscale outlined what he calls the New Player Experience in Dust 514 on the PS3 entertainment system today.

To quote: Greetings, Mercenaries. Our motivation for the release of Uprising 1.5 was to do whatever we felt necessary to improve the chances of new players making it past Day One of playing DUST 514.

The first step was to consider what sort of players we were aiming at, and decide which teaching approach to take.

Our target audience is, for the most part, gamers who are familiar with other console first-person shooters and want to try something a little more interesting. This led us to focus primarily on teaching the differences between DUST and other FPS games, rather than trying to teach people, for example, what a gun is and how to move around.

To accomplish this, we considered two major approaches: instruction-driven and objective-driven. An instruction-driven approach ensures that players are clearly shown what to do at each point along the way.

Commonly this means highlighting every interaction, locking out everything else, and ensuring that every single step is explained.

An objective-driven approach, by contrast, tends towards giving players goals to complete, and telling them just enough to let them figure...
 

CCP Games: Dust 514 PS3: Suit Up & Roll Out with New Battle Kits

100°
57w ago - CCP Games developer CCP Sentinel announced today that PS3 fans can suit up and roll out with new Dust 514 Battle Kits.

To quote: In DUST 514, a massively multiplayer free-to-play first-person shooter exclusive to PlayStation 3, you can build an empire, wage war on a galactic scale and change the notorious sci-fi universe of EVE Online forever. But you can't do it without the right gear.

As an immortal mercenary, you'll want to outfit your battle clones with the best dropsuits, weapons, enhancements and equipment to suit your fighting style.

The customization options are nearly endless and with a galactic battlefield that's constantly shifting, you'll need to experiment with the latest military tech to maximize your performance.

One of the best ways to test out new gear in DUST 514 is with a newly offered Featured Fit. These fully-fitted dropsuit and vehicle setups are custom-made by our designers to showcase the combat advantages of individual races, weapons, defensive strategies and more.

Featured Fits are ready to go and don't require any skill training to equip, so Mercs can use them without burning through hard-earned Skill Points. Just slot them onto your character of choice, and hop into battle.

This week we have two Featured Fits...

Sony Announces Dust 514 Deploys Today on PlayStation Network

100°
67w ago - Sony Creative Director CCP Praetorian announced that Dust 514 officially deploys today on PlayStation Network!

To quote: Greeting DUST Mercs! Ten years ago EVE Online launched on PC, and during that time it evolved with its players into the incredibly successful, critically acclaimed sci-fi game that players know today.

It grew organically beyond the original vision of the designers and into the player-driven galactic sandbox game where immortal starship pilots take the power to dictate their own destiny.

About a year ago we began a similar journey with DUST 514.

We set out to create something so ambitious and so crazy that we as gung-ho Vikings, had no choice but to make work. We sought to expand the EVE Universe from the stars to the planetary surfaces by creating an intense FPS on console and linking it to the largest single-shard PC-based MMO in history.

Not only did we want to link DUST 514 to EVE, we wanted a ramped-up level of interaction where DUST mercs communicated with EVE pilots and cooperated in space and on the ground to generate galactic conflict of amazing scale.

Mission accomplished. We are humbled and proud to be with you here on launch day to deliver on that original vision. Now that DUST 514 has launched, a new door has opened...
