Dust 514 Confirms The New MMOFPS Also For Girl Gamers

There is a new game massive multi-player online first person shooter coming to town if you have not already heard called Dust 514. Yes I admit we have been a bit busy promoting it all over our site and now we have more of a reason to do so. CCP games the developers of Dust 514 have confirmed today that they will include female mercenaries in the Dust 514 universe. For those of you who grew tired of saying "there are not enough games for girls", well now it seems the girl gamers can join the battle and form clans of their own. This information was passed to me today from the public relations representative from CCP games.  We have not officially seen the artwork for the female mercenaries but you can be sure as soon as it is available I will be bringing it to you.

 Dust 514  was revealed for the first time to the fans attending the EVE Online's Fanfest 2012 last week. Fans got a chance to check out the artwork close up and demo the game. For those of you who are not familiar with what the hype is around Dust 514 as a massive multi-player online (MMO) first person shooter (FPS). Maybe this will help you clear it up. What is new about Dust 514 is that, it will be the first massive multi-player online game built for any game console. MMO's games like Warcraft and Eve Online have been around for a while but primarily for PC users. Playing an MMO is not quite the same as popping in and playing a traditional FPS or RPG because sometimes it can have a bit of a learning curve. Sticking it out and leveling up can be a rewarding experience that will allow you to create clans and friends networks at a deeper level than traditional games. CCP is also doing something else that has not been done before on a console game. That is to add a second entirely different game called EVE Online; a space game based on flight combat and combine that with Dust 514; a ground combat shooter. By putting them together it will allow you to have a joined combat playing experience. Imagine a battle against another clan and being out numbered. You can send out a message asking for assistance from a pilot playing up in the EVE universe to come down and preform an air strike and lend your team a hand. He responds to your request and carpet bombs the place helping your clan to defend the territory. Because every action you take in the DUST/EVE universe is permanent. Well, I don't know about you but I am ready to hit the demo in June.

 Dust will be available to demo this summer in June and will be exclusive for PlayStation 3 users only.  Dust 514 release date is still unknown but planned for Q2 2012 and will be free to download for all Sony PlayStation 3 users.

Crytek Launching New Game Crysis 3 Hunter Edition

Well one of the better FPS that launched in 2011 Crysis 2, is ready to bring us some good news. Crytek announced today that spring 2013 we will be seeing the new release of Crysis 3 Hunter Edition. Only this time they are calling it the ultimate sandbox shooter. I don’t know about you but quite honestly I rank Crysis 2 in the top three FPS of 2011. If you are like me and looking forward to this new title then Crytek has some kick’n items lined up you may not want to miss out on for pre-order customers of the Hunter Edition. Crytek also announced that players who are ready to start the hunt can pre-order the Crysis® 3 Hunter Edition* today. The Crysis 3 Hunter Edition gives players the tools to become the ultimate hunter in multiplayer with early access to the new signature bow and its attachments, plus the Hunter Nanosuit module which adds additional power and functionality to the super-suit. Gamers who pre-order now will also have a head start when playing online with a bonus XP boost up to level 5, a unique bow skin and three exclusive dog tags to hunt in style**. The Crysis 3 Hunter Edition is available at participating retailers for $59.99. In addition to receiving the Crysis 3 Hunter Edition, select retailers are offering gamers that pre-order Crysis 3 the following early multiplayer unlocks:  

Stalker Pack — Includes the base game, all Hunter Edition content and the following early multiplayer unlocks: for players who like to stalk their prey from the shadows the Stalker Pack provides early multiplayer access to the deadly semi-auto Jackal shotgun. This powerful, close-range shotgun comes with a unique silencer attachment, custom weapon skin and two exclusive themed in-game dog tags.

Overkill Pack — Includes the base game, all Hunter Edition content and the following early multiplayer unlocks: the Overkill Pack features early multiplayer access to the Typhoon assault weapon and skin. Spewing 500 rounds a second, the Typhoon gives players the ability to go guns blazing to take back the Liberty Dome. Also included are two exclusive Overkill themed in-game dog tags.

Predator Pack — Includes the base game, all the Hunter Edition content and the following early multiplayer unlocks: the Predator Pack delivers early multiplayer access to the Feline submachine gun and exclusive camo. With an extremely fast rate of fire and a 60 round magazine the Feline is highly effective and deadly, at short range.

If you’re wondering about the game play and story well that’s all new too. Set in 2047, Prophet is on a revenge mission after uncovering the truth behind Cell Corporation's motives for building the quarantined Nanodomes. The citizens were told that the giant citywide structures were resurrected to protect the population and to cleanse these metropolises of the remnants of Ceph forces. In reality, the Nanodomes are CELL's covert attempt at a land and technology grab in their quest for global domination. With Alien Ceph lurking around every corner and human enemies on the attack, nobody is safe in the path of vengeance. Everyone is a target in Prophet's quest for retribution. Crysis 2 was a great title unfortunately it did not have the marketing hype and was sadly shadowed by the big launches of Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3. But as far as shooter games go, the CryENGINE 3 was impressive both in game play and visuals. I’m looking forward to Crysis 3 Hunter Edition and I certainly will be adding this to my 2013 game library.
