How does a new trailer with a side order of Home and PSVita support sound?
So, Dust is based in the EVE Online universe and the game’s Home space will reflect that. Home will also play a part in actually getting a Beta pass for Dust as well; the first 10k visitors to the space will get a little ‘thank you for looking’ with an all access pass for early play.
Even better than that- the PSV will be a big (but optional obviously) part of things as the portable will have a companion app that can do some very cool things.
DUST 514 also supports the PlayStation Vita in the form of a companion app. Officially titled DUST 514: Neocom, the app integrates services that incorporate the feel and functionality from DUST 514 on PlayStation 3, with a focus on customization, communication and trade. Each character can be customized and configured using DUST 514: Neocom; players can create and edit customized fittings (load-outs) with a huge variety of dropsuits, weapons, equipment, modules and vehicles. The Vita app will also access a wide range of social features, such as the in-game Mail system and Friends List to keep up with game dynamics, and players can purchase new items, weapons and vehicles from the DUST 514 Marketplace using either ISK (in-game earned currency) or Aurum (purchased currency). DUST 514: Neocom is scheduled to be released later this year alongside DUST 514.
Look for Dust 514 to drop onto the PSN later this year, the Beta kicks off June 29th.
