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.
