Nice pics of Gallente vehicles and architecture and an Amarrian gun in that link, for a while I thought it'd just be boring Caldari style stuff.
Caldari - Bluey grey angular industrial
Gallente - Bluey green smooth alien curves
Amarr - Gold and regal in space
Minmatar - Red and rusting and VERTICAL
But for Dust the three former styles have been toned down and look a lot like Caldari at a glance. Darn FPS'.
In Rust We Trust baby!

I've not played Eve but do know a little about it; given the size of the universe I wonder whether CCP are planning on having multiple maps per planet? I guess it might depend on the number of people that sign up for the game...
Dust 514: The PS3's most important game
CCP could breathe new life into the tame and tired console businessInteresting article, there's some outdated and wrong re-tellings of EVE events in there, but still a nice long read.
A successful game is easy to spot: The publisher is richer, the retailer is busier, the people who play it are happier, and the studio that created it hasnít closed down.
Success for Dust 514 would trigger something else entirely. If you donít know why youíll need to, because the PS3 exclusive could pave the way for a dramatic transformation to the console business.
Yeah that was a good read. Thanks for posting it.
I definitely think there is an audience for this. Just look at the MAG devotees and what they were able to coordinate (without much help from the game) in terms of clans, etc.
Looking forward to hearing more about this, and eventually trying out some sort of beta.
I would guess EVE subscribers would get invited to the beta, first. Which is a shame because I don't want to sub, again, to a bad game to be able to play in the Dust beta.
Although the proposed balance changes and the new glass cannon Battle Cruisers being introduced in the winter expansion could tempt me.

Is ISK made in Eve transferable to Dust?
I've never quite figured out the interaction between these two games despite them being on the same planets (like PI structures). I guess pewing and Dust players from an orbiting Eve ship would just be too unfair?
IIRC that is a possibility. It'd be a bit dull for the people on the ground.
So, is this beta currently underway? Really looking forward to this.
New Dust info from EDGE
edit: just realised that article is from ages ago, still holds a lot of info, though.

Okay, some proper up to date concrete info this time.
Vehicle dynamics and customization
Weapons! Info! Yay!

Minnie Heavy Weapons sneak preview!
Very Mass Effecty.
You can start signing up for the beta, now!
You need have an active EVE sub, though, which rules me out.

I'd still be playing EVE if my damn computer would run it properly
Crumbs I know, but there is a ~20 second flash of (new?) gameplay in the latest Pulse.
It starts around the 2 minute mark.
Will be great to see some player made videos once the beta starts going.

Ooo, that looked a smidge plain to me.
They're only doing temperate planets with drab Caldari architecture to start off with, so the environments will look duller than the dreariest of FPS shooters.
Hopefully if Dust gets going we'll see Lava, Gas, Ice and Plasma planets being fought over amongst rusting Minmatar structures and regal Amarr temples.
Here's the clip if you don't have a youtube account

It looks a bit like Halo without the rainbow coloured armour.
I just hope they get the gun game, team work and persistence elements right.
Dust will have ECM.
My excitement for this game has evaporated.
ECM? Why would that ruin the game?
