So, more and more information is leaking out into the public about DUST 514. I'll have more to say about a certain E3 video in particular in the next few days. In the meantime, I'm afraid I found the following quote very amusing, though not for the intended reason:
"We're still tuning prices - the costs will change according to the feedback we get on the beta - but I believe when I calculated it last, at its most high-end - if you assume that somebody came in and had to buy, with real-world money, the best gear for a serious throw down - it was like a 24-cent thing."That's CCP Vice President of Art Morgan Godat, speaking to Eurogamer.
So let me make sure I have this right: DUST is basically an arcade game that I can play for a quarter per life? Am I understanding you properly? What is this, the 1980s? ;-)
The DUST 514 "beta event" now starts "on or around 29 June". I assume "beta event" still means "don't write about it unless it's public." In particular, though, this is now public:
But people are already buying items with real-world money.So expect me to have quite a lot to say about that...
