dust514 Dust 514 update Uprising 1.5 hits today

If you have been waiting for an update to Dust 514, wait no longer! CCP (which stands for Crowd Control Productions, if you don’t know, now you know) launched their latest installment in a series of  “rapid-fire updates” today with Uprising 1.5. If you’re unaware, Dust 514 is set in the increasingly strange (but undeniably intriguing) Eve Online universe and is both a shooter and massively multiplayer experience. Uprising 1.5 expands “Corporation Roles as well as a revised New Player Experience and the all-new Squad Finder.”

Some more of the updates include:

  • Revised New Player Experience: Initial tutorials have been completely revised, now following a task-driven structure that rewards players for demonstrating proficiency in joining battles, creating fittings and training skills. Rewards are granted in the form of militia dropsuits, vehicles, weapons and modules.
  • Squad Finder: Squads are designed to help get players grouped up and battling together in DUST514. The new Squad Finder will list all available squads that are not yet deployed into battle and are waiting on new players to join them.
  • New Corporation Roles: Corporation CEOs and directors can now distribute specific roles to other members within the corporation. The roles that can be assigned are: Accountant, Personnel Director, Terrestrial Combat Officer and Terrestrial Logistics Officer.

Dust 514 is available now exclusively for the PS3. Both the game and this new update can be played without charge.
