I have to admit that I was disappointed when CCP announced that Dust 514 was only going to be out on Playstation, but wither the decision was made to avoid sapping the Eve Online player base or due to an exclusive deal with Sony, the choice looks to have been the wrong one with reports of the game being overall poor.
And now out of Fanfest comes news of Legion, a First Person Shooter MMO with Player versus Player and Environmental components. This is going to be target the PC platform, but CCP haven’t ruled out a PS4 release but I don’t think it’s high on the cards.
Initially I thought the game will go head to head with SoEs Planetside 2 title yet given the PvE elements it maybe more like Defiance and FireFall.
Interestingly the original Planetside game was going to have PvE and a mission system build into it, but sadly they never made the final version.
The experiences in making Dust have allowed CCP to expand on the idea making it bigger and more involved. This will hopefully allow for a greater interaction with the whole Eve Universe and enable more direct control of planets/systems.
Now all it needs is to allow you to move your character seamlessly between Legion and Eve and Dok Chaos will never have to log out.
