“Dust 514” is the upcoming free-to-play shooter from Iceland-based Ccp Games. The game takes advantage of the PlayStation 3’s free online multiplayer functionality to tie into Ccp’ long-running space-freight Mmo “Eve Online.” The basic frame is that on-the-ground “Dust 514” will fight for control of certain planets or sectors, clearing the way for “Eve”’s Byzantine, player-controlled corporations to mine the natural resources and set up shipping lanes.

It’s a super-interesting idea, but there’s a hitch: “Dust 514” isn’t out yet, with no release date announced, and the PlayStation4 will probably be out this fall.

“Like ‘Eve’, we believe ‘Dust’ is going to be a long-term service that will vastly outlive the hardware that it launches on,” Ccp chief marketing officer David Reid told Eurogamer. “Much like ‘Eve’ has vastly surpassed the graphics cards and processors of the PCs it launched on in 2003.”
