DUST 514 is the next big thing from CCP as it’s a first in our industry.

That game of course being EVE Online, the PC MMORPG that has more subscribers than the population of Iceland, home of CCP. 

Iceland is also home to the annual EVE Online Fanfest. Like BlizzCon in the States, Fanfest is the go-to place to learn more about EVE, meet fellow players, and it's where many people got first ever hands-on with DUST 514. I played with CCP's ambitious new project and feel it has a potential to set a new precedence for console gaming.

EVE dev admits 'mistakes,' reduces workforce by 20%

EVE Online has always been a game I'd admired from a distance rather than actually playing it. Icelandic developer CCP has done an amazing job and EVE's success always seemed to be well earned. Which makes all the recent trou...
