DUST 514 adds EVE Online-themed armor skins

    
22

It’s no small understatement to say that DUST 514 has failed to achieve the same following and numbers that its big sibling, EVE Online, has. So perhaps you can’t blame CCP when it attempts to leech off of EVE by creating, say, EVE-themed armor skins for DUST 514.

Coming tomorrow, the first dozen DUST 514 SKINs will give players a way to dress up their soldiers in the fashion of their favorite battleships. No, that is not a sentence we thought we’d be writing when we got up this morning. The armor skins draw inspiration from the colors and patterns of popular EVE Online ships, and will be purchasable both in the cash shop and through in-game ISK.

This may be the start of a trend for DUST 514, as CCP said that it has many more SKINs in the works for future updates.

Sorenthaz Gas Chamber Gerhan Greaterdivinity Shocker: DUST wasn’t meant to appeal specifically to EVE players.

_Ariel_ That’s pretty much how they described DUST forever ago.

They are afraid and rightly so, the null sec alliance leadership has and will again organize the crashing of the server by having thousands of people all jam into one system.
They do this anytime the devs make a change they don’t agree with and to remind CCP who’s boss.

CastagereShaikura Have you considered that the game just isn’t for you? Serious question. 

Have you also considered the possibility that “mass-appeal” simply isn’t a design goal of the game? We’re talking about a company that made this:

Does that look like developers that are chasing after the “masses”? CCP has the balls, your word, to stand its ground in a market that is becoming increasingly homogenized in a quest for the ever elusive “mass-appeal” and say “yeah, we’re happy with a half-million people playing our game, it’s not for everyone”.

Yes, it’s niche. It’s also profitable for CCP and, importantly, is a game that its developers WANT to play, rather than being some cynical, formulaic thing that does everything that everything else does with a different coat of paint and will die in a year anyway.

I wonder if CCP will ever combine Dust/Legion with EVE to create one game.

So instead of having two separate games that can interact with each other on a very remotely limited basis, you have one integrated game that interacts with each game 24/7.

You just login “World of EVE”, and undock your battleship and blast a few ships to bits, then you go to a planet and and carry an army of soldiers/tanks/equipments/etc to another planet to conquer, then you bombard a continent to soften the enemy army so that your allied soldiers can take over, then you get a cargo full of resources as payment for assisting the conquering of the planet, then you jump clone to a clone soldier on a planet to fight your way to a building to activate the planteary surface-to-space laser cannons which will shoot and destroy and spaceships that ventures too close to the planet….

Will they ever do something to this extent?

You gotta love CCP. They keep trying. Its to bad Eve is such a niche game. I would love to make it my main game. I love sifi over fanasy. But they are too afraid to make drastic changes to the game. Its to late for this game to ever have mass appeal. Hopefully one day someone with balls will take over this company. I really believe this game could be the sifi version of Wow if it had mass appeal. And Dust514 would have been a great addon.
