hello, i am chris, and as you can see by my name+class, i used to be a knight of the caldari state, a great warrior that fought with all of you in the great multiplayer arena of dust514... (in PS3).

so, after a long hiatus from the game, i tried to log in again to the old DUST514 site, but i only see the forums in here, and im confused.
what happened to the game's site?
is it gone?

also: i saw online that the PS3 (free) MMO of DUST514 will be stopped/cancelled (on may of this year?), and that a new, PC-game of the same name will be released on its place.

if so, what will be the name of the new (DUST514) game?
how much will it cost? will it be for the PC? and will it have achievements/a story mode/campaign mode too?

anyways, sorry for the many questions, and i apologise if i've posted this on the wrong section of the forums, but please understand, that i was gone for a long hiatus, and i now see my beloved 514 area barren and destroyed.

so, help me out, and lets keep this game alive! (one way or another).

thanks.

Firstly... Straight

Now that that is out of the way, I am assuming you are someone's alt, but on the outside chance you are a true straggler, I will answer your questions honestly.

The servers have indeed been shut down, and there is no reviving them no matter how many (few?) beg for it. You can't unring this bell. You can find the announcement for the event here.

The next EVE FPS, called Project Nova, will come out one the PC, and little is known about when that will happen. There was a tiny demo, emphasis on both words Tiny and Demo, at Fanfest last year. You can find a video of the demo here.

For anything else, you can search the forums using the search bar for any Nova related discussion. There were many articles about the project, which did offer a few details, or you can Google that as well.

Merry Christmas.

What a cool last name.
I would've recruited you if the game wasn't shut down.

Fair enough. The major point was the medium on which it was developed and not necessarily a suggestion of the release's likelihood.

OK. first of all, im not an alt.
i am a genuine person/player, and i've been away from the DUST514 community for some time now (for a long hiatus), and when i tried to log in again on my PS3... i saw a strange message: ''servers are closed/the game is no longer available, for more information, please visit www.(the forums of DUST514)stuffstuff.com''.

so, when i saw that message, i was naturally surprised+dissapointed, because i really liked that game.
it had great graphics, it had scary moments (such as jumping from the spaceship and falling quickly to the ground), it had awesome guns+sweet battle effects, and i generally loved the whole atmosphere in there.

also, it was free. what's not to like in that? it was a GREAT FPS game, and i really really liked it.
its a shame that its gone.

hell, they could've slapped all of the game into a PS3 CD and sell it for people like us, im sure that many would buy it. (and they could also market a ''remastered'' version for the PS4 as well, just in case...(in a limited/small stock)

it would be win-win for them.

anyways, my questions ARE:
oneeyedking, do you know where i can find+download the demo of ''Project Nova''?
i would love to play the demo, even if its small...

also happy holidays, and a happy new year!
thanks

The Project Nova Demo was only available to Fanfest attendees of 2016 at the event itself, it was just a small booth made in as a hands on presentation for the project and to take advantage of first impressions feedback.

Rattati thought that it was possible that he might have had an Alpha by the end of 2016, so I can't imagine an Alpha would be in the too distant future.

As far as the game of Dust, unfortunately, servers were shut down. Much of the computation was done server side, so there is no way to bring it back.

Just keep an eye out for Nova news, and maybe get hooked up with the part of the community that has moved on to Discord.

i see.

also, isnt there a demo of ''project nova'' lying anywhere on the web?
(i tried to find it, but there is nowheer to be found... the only thing that i've found are some vids on youtube...)

i really hope that they will release project nova/a demo of it in the public, because this was a great game, with awesome aesthetics.

BTW

Hopefully all you need is the link. I am sure Ripley or someone will correct me if I am wrong, and lead you there.

As far as the Demo goes, since the games are hosted on CCP servers, servers would need to be somehow set up privately. Perhaps that has already happened, but I would be surprised if it has and people have kept quiet about it.
