CCP Reveals The Future of War: Building DUST 514's PS3 Arsenal

127w ago - Today CCP Community Manager CmdrWang has revealed the future of war - building DUST 514's PS3 arsenal below!

To quote: In this post, I wanted to pick a few weapons that changed the way that the development team played when we added them to the game.

Gamers don't always realize how long it can take for a weapon to make the leap from the drawing board to being fully functional and kicking ass in the game. It needs to be concepted, built, textured, animated, weapon logic needs to be engineered, sounds created, various values set up, tested, debugged, and tweaked.

As you can imagine, all this takes quite a while, which means you spend a lot of time playing your game with a limited set of gear. Over time, we add new weapons to the game and they can radically alter the balance of play because they open up new possibilities in combat. Below are some examples.

Heavy Weapons for Heavy Armor...

Let's start with the Minmatar MH82-BCR Personal Autocannon. This is a heavy weapon and, as such, restricted to the heavy dropsuit. As well as being simply devastating in its own right, this weapon really opened up the heavy dropsuit class once we added it to the game.

The Future of War: Dust 514's Rapid Deployment Vehicles on PS3

141w ago - CCP Game Designer CCP Remnant is back with details on Dust 514's rapid deployment vehicles in the upcoming PS3 video game below.

To quote: DUST 514 is an MMOFPS coming to 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.

Following is a thematic description of Rapid Deployment Vehicles, or RDVs. The RDVs deliver vehicles to players on the battlefield, provided that they own the vehicle's blueprint, and are skilled for its operation.

The RDVs are AI driven, with a robust pathfinding system that allows them to deploy anywhere on even the largest battlefields. (We will give more insight into the game's vehicle mechanics in a blog post soon.)

Shrouded in advanced optical stealth and guided by automated networked navigation systems, the J42 "Sky Lift" RDV (Rapid Deployment Vehicle) drone is able to deliver even the heaviest armor, with pinpoint accuracy, anywhere on the battlefield.

The proliferation of this invaluable tech has changed the face of ground warfare in the EVE universe, giving front-line commanders...
