CCP, the developer behind EVE Online, has announced that their upcoming PlayStation 3-exclusive first-person shooter DUST 514 will operate on a free to play business model.
“DUST 514 has everything you could want in a shooter: thrilling gameplay, spectacular graphics and an incredible strategic depth that comes from sharing the living universe of EVE Online,” says CCP CEO Hilmar Pétursson. “DUST 514 embodies the passion and creativity the world has come to expect from CCP, and we think PlayStation®3 owners will be amazed at the opportunity to play such a groundbreaking new game of this caliber for free.”
As Pétursson mentions above, DUST 514 shares the same in-game world as EVE Online and will include some interaction between players of EVE on PC and DUST on PlayStation 3.
