Welcome Soldier,

We are happy to announce the launch of our new sister website http://dustnews24.com where you can find the latest information and developments around EVE Online’s “red headed stepchild”™ DUST 514. Since the game is shaping up into something that is actually enjoyable, we strongly feel that this is the right time to explore the in an outs of ground warfare on this dedicated website. If news regarding DUST 514 are especially noteworthy or cross over into EVE Online (like factional warfare) we will of course continue to keep you posted here.

With the new Uprising 1.8 patch, the CPM elections and of course the upcoming FanFest there are interesting times ahead. But not just the game is in a better shape since its launch, it also formed a formidable community around it. For an FPS game that has a lower player base than EVE, the amount of bloggers, YouTubers, streamers, third party websites and other content providers is considerable. And even with the current limitations, the politics in DUST 514 are well worthy of the old CAOD forums. Also, it might not look like it at first glance, but there a surprising amount of business opportunities within DUST 514 for capsuleers. So if you are curious about these things, or if your boots are already on the ground, this might be the place for you.

There are many things happening on the forums, Reddit, IRC and so on. We will do our best to search through all these sources, filter and bring you a balanced and well informed perspective of what is going on in DUST 514. Sadly a day only has 24 hours, which means we will miss things. But if you would to share something DUST 514 related, be it a news lead or a video on YouTube, or if you can maybe see yourself writing articles for the website: We would be happy to hear from you via [email protected] or the #dn24 channel on irc.coldfront.net. But now you should go and take a look:

    Seems an odd launch, considering DUST is sort of dead.

    Will there be a VN24? I suppose that will depend on if there is an EVE/Valk connection or not. It’s looking like this will just be a pure video game experience.

      Just because you hate DUST doesn’t mean its dead.

        It’s not thriving. It’s not growing. The writing is on the wall.

          There is still the potential to claw its way back ^_^

            Do you sit around fooling yourself that something is healthy, even as it’s gasping its last breath?

            Actually it’s not. :I http://eve-offline.net/?server=dust

            I mean, I’m not of the opinion that it’s dying just yet, but to say that it’s growing is a blatant obfuscation of the facts.

    Given the 21 millions in code that has been written off the book, this is a bold move… let’s hope for DN24’s sake that if that was dust code, that new code is about to replace it!

      Our best guess is that CCP Games decided to finally nix that World of Darkness game.

      This is actually a really interesting topic Ripard Teg brought up. We have an article in the pipes explaining why it is not DUST.

    i would like to point out that dust514 news should be on evenews24.com as it is still eve related … with the amount of goonies coming here and talking crap about lack of news it would also help fill the gaps …putting it on two different sites just does not sound like a good idea.

      As mentioned in the announcement, we will continue to post EVE related stuff. On top of that Riverini is working some clever magic, to give visitors of EN24 an up to date and non-intrusive preview of the articles on DN24. They will be just one click away, just like the articles here 🙂

      As fix for the lack of news I think it’s a better solution to write more articles =^-^=

        as someone that loads evenews24.com about every 3 hrs to look for more up to date news i would definitely love to see more articles 🙂

        may i suggest some High sec articles? i to like null sec as well but it seems that every article on here is about null sec. if you look at statistics there is more people in high sec then in null as well and it might help increase your reader base

          Absolutely and that’s something we are aiming to provide more, since most of the EVE Online playerbase actually lives in empire space..

      This is a fair point until you take into account our plans to provide a full coverage of DUST 514. The amount of daily content we aim to provide would prove disruptive to our EVE focused readership.

      We are working to create a good cross integration between sites, which means no matter which preference you got on sites, you won’t miss an opportunity to access the other site’s content.

      Titanfall…..the game made for people that are bad at FPSers. If you are going to try and talk shit, at least name a good shooter.

        it’s still a hell of lot better than the poor excuse of an fps your playing there buttercup. but dont listen to me keep towing CCP’s line maybe you give them enough head they will make it better one day.

          lol…. I play Crysis3, the idea that Titanfall is better then Crysis3 is comical.

          Learn to read I said ” If you are going to try and talk shit, at least name a good shooter.”

          You go play your simple stuff. DUST is obviously a bit too much for you. You poor little thing.

        It’s not even that, if it was that it would probably be decent.

        Titanfall is a FPS with more bots then players, they game is made for people that are punching bags on other shooters to feel good about themselves because they can contribute by killing bots. Don’t get it twisted ether, these bots are not made offer any kind of challenge, they are just moving targets. It’s a game literally made for people that are bad at games like CoD.

          That too.

          Also, the smart pistol. Whomever thought that would be a good idea for a PC deserves to have their balls ground off with a belt sander.

          I’d be surprised if Dust isn’t in the black. It’s pretty hard not to make money on a F2P platform.

    Dust 514 – player creating bots = obviously dead

        Hah yes, the books are awesome, and somehow the name fits well with DUST (I use it everywhere, just coincidence). Thanks!

    Aah dust, where you can always just build fits for the LOLS and kill unsuspecting noobs, like my Amarr Heavy Frame A-1 with a Plasma cannon

      You should try the Commando and dual-wield two plasma cannons. Much fun in the million clone event last weekend. 12K fit.

  12. Right now it sounds like Movable Type is the best blogging
    platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what
    you are using on your blog?
