    Project Nova (Dust 2.0 for PC) revealed

    CCP spent way too little time on Project Nova, but it seems obvious the game is still in the early phases.



    They have started from scratch and created a demo reusing assets from Dust 514 while scraping several aspects of the game that didn't work well.

    • Free to play on PC
    • Moving away from planets and into space
    • Will show off New Eden (ships, stations, asteroids)
    • Scaling back MMO ambitions

    More clips from Fanfest. Did they add that Minmatar sniper rifle to PS3 or is it new?

    OK, so they can create an Unreal game.

    Wheres the inventive to choose it over all the others?
    Contract stuff to Seraphina Amaranth.

    Presumably you'll be able to fight on eve spacestations / outposts.

    It was the EvE integration that made Dust so appealing as an idea. Fight for station control, fight for planetary control and in turn affect factional warfare indexes. Board a Titan and disable its weapons. These are the things that set it apart. Unfortunately, only a small portion of those dreams have actually translated into reality, but it was quite cool from my pov.

    It's what I actually dreamed of Valkyrie to be. Imagine playing a carrier pilot in EvE and deploying wings of player controlled fighters.

    But I suppose servers would melt and CCP isn't a large enough company to actually make this come true.

    In the stream them mentioned that you'd start out being able to choose any role, without even having to choose a race - but then as you progressed you could specialise into weapons, gear, equipment.

    Why would that be good? If I was in a carrier I'd want my dps to be applied fairly consistently, not rely on a bunch of people in my fighters to not be completely retarded. I struggle to find more than a couple of non retarded team mates in pretty much every game I play. I consider myself lucky if 50% are good. Apply that to a flight of fighters and I wouldn't bother even undocking a carrier.

    Nope. I don't think the progression system will even be compatible. CCP did say they would have loyalty rewards at least.

    I am kinda meh on this. Yay for PC, but I liked the planet aspect of Dust. I could see planets mattering more through Dust. I don't really know how Nova will make the "This matters" part of Eve come to life.

    People who say this game has no place anywhere are dumb.

    There's a shitload of F2P shooters out there and I'm pretty sure they're all making money just a few I know out of my head: Blacklight retribution, Dirty Bomb, Alliance of valiant arms ....

    If CCP does it properly and puts it on steam and everything I'm sure it'll bring them money and that's all they (we?) care about

    i don't mind the new "nova-dust" product has lost the link with eve, however like Aliventi said, Dust put planets in the forefront of conflict, something we just see from orbit, if the fights were to capture or defend PI installations, actual cities, or whatever, it would have been great...but space? i don't know...maybe some deadspace shantitown works....but still planets were far more interesting.

    There's no reason why Nova won't gradually include elements that touch the EVE universe, it's just that the orbital bombardments and such were more of a gimmick than a naturally evolved feature.

    Once they got the gameplay established there's no reason that invading cap ships and such couldn't influence FW balance, or mid-reinforced citadel vulnerability, moon mining efficiency, PI, etc.

    Just let them make a proper game first. The code to do cross-game events is still there. Hell, even GunJack could be made to have some 'influence' on the universe.

    The second thing is that people are perceiving the loadouts that they start with to be the definitive loadouts. They’re there to help you start the game, and afterwards we’re definitely aiming freedom that you have in DUST 514.
    YES!!!

    And that might suggest they're also keeping 'eve/dust-style skills' in the background, available to be tweaked by advanced players, but also skilled automagically depending on what gameplay style retards want to follow. I'm guessing Valkyrie shares that.

    Basically complexity if you want, but easy and automatic if you just don't care.

    everything in that article sounds good, overall...still i don't have much faith.

    the only lacking feature is PvE, dusties or clone soldiers are to regular soldiers what capsuleers are to ship captains. So you can do a 2vsNPC or 3vsNPC mercenary job, killing down criminals, earn a few isks. Even maybe explore infested rogue drone stations and harvest alloys (remember those?).

    Then that isk/alloys can be used on stuff that is consumable. Armor layering, special types of ammo, whatever...

    there is sooo much potential on a eve-inspired FPS but CCP need to exploit their own universe right....not sure they have the vision to do so.

    Any idea what sort of size dev team they're working with?
