During a recent event in Las Vegas, we spent time with CCP's DUST 514 team talking about the future of the MMOFPS. As the title indicates, devs have a clear-cut goal in mind for the future. See why they're focused as such before heading to the comments.
With that in mind, the focus for the Dust team over the next year will be to put more “MMO” in their “MMOFPS”. The first step in accomplishing this goal is to make it relevant to people who know nothing about EVE get into the game. The lore and meaning behind what you’re actually doing and how it relates to the other game can be confusing to those who aren’t familiar with it. Finding a way to make the game appeal to a broader range of players is a constant work in progress for any MMO, and while they aren’t quite ready to tell us everything they have in mind down the line, they do promise something cool and immersive.
