Upcoming downloadable PS3 shooter Dust 514 will be the largest in its genre, says developer CCP Games.

The title – which connects players to the in-game world of PC space MMO EVE Online – will allow thousands of players to take part in large-scale battles at the same time.

CCP’s executive producer Brandon Laurino told the PlayStation Blog: “ In terms of scale, depth and volume of content, DUST 514 will easily be the biggest multiplayer FPS on the market – also by virtue of being an MMOFPS, not just an FPS.

“Sometimes users are coordinating battles involving tens of thousands of players at once.

“Right off the bat, we have literally thousands of in-game items built into the system; likewise, in terms of scale, you’re looking at a conflict taking place across thousands of planets, so we’re not just talking a dozen maps – we’re talking an entire universe of planets and areas of engagement within them.”

I've loved playing 64 player matches in BF2, but there gets a point where you have so many players it doesn't matter. Planetside years ago could have a couple thousand on a server at once but they all weren't in the same exact battle at once. This sounds like its better on paper than how it could ever be executed.
