Dust 514 (stylized as EVE: DUST 514) is a free-to-play first-person shooter developed by CCP Games for the PlayStation 3. Dust 514 takes place in New Eden and is directly connected to CCP's game Eve Online. There is direct interaction between the two; player actions in one game affect the political, economic, and social status of the other. The two games were officially connected on January 10, 2013, while the open beta started on January 22, 2013. The full game was released worldwide on May 14, 2013. While previews of the game were highly positive, the full game received a mixed reception upon its initial release although it has made numerous improvements with constant updates and hotfixes.
