Well peeps, as we all know CCP have one niche gaming hit in EVE online and CCP has been developing a console FPS MMO for release in 2013. Now what not everyone realises is that Dust and EVE servers are merging soon (Dust is at open beta stage now, I hope and think , so the Dust514 squadies (sorry Xcom term here) will be able to chat to EVE players in their space ships, join corps, and influence the EVE universe. It is a first... a console FPS mmo interfacing with a space ship mmo.
Now since both games have an out of game cash shops it is possible for players to influence the now combined EVE larger universe both through in-game actions and out of game credit card purchases. Now at the beta stage this is blocked, but CCP have gone on the record with Eurogamer site stating...
""So, for this first release, any ISK transfer between EVE and DUST characters will be blocked. This will then be replaced by a taxable transfer mechanism with the intention of easing the currency control to 0% and removing it entirely once we are happy the economies have reached an equilibrium."
We all know that EVE is a game that has developed an intricate in game economic system...wil the banks and corps be busted by Dust squadies taking down planets?
Also with standalone FPS mmo Planetside 2 going down a treat for PC gamers recently, do we actually need this strange hybrid of console gaming and PC gaming that CCP are embarking upon.
Please feel free to comment on the Dust:EVE changes going down right now ^^
