CCP unveils EVE on consoles

CCP’s Hilmar Veigar Petursson unveiled the studios’s latest ambition at GDC Europe today – a new project called Dust 514 which bridges the gap between FPS and MMO audiences.

The game is an FPS for console – but one that is set in the EVE universe, and feeds back into the bigger space trading MMO on PC.

Explained Petursson: "It’s our take on the console MMO – we looked hard at how people play in their living room and chose to make a specially made experience for that environment."

Players take he role of ‘a gritty marine running around buying trucks and guns’, living on planets in EVE Online.

The back story for the game is to be teased any explained in an upcoming EVE Online novel.
