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.
