Dust 514 Warlords

Big changes are ahead for Dust 514 players, as CCP Games' F2P shooter prepares to change major game elements with the Warlords 1.2 update, going live tomorrow, July 7.

The key parts of the Conquest overhaul is making the rewards for owning districts are more useful, and to make the gameplay more accessible to newer corps and players. On the other hand, if you do have some friends, team deploy is now an option.

For progression, the primary desires on the part of CCP are to simplify the UI for both new and veteran players and to provide more appealing and obvious progression options. As such, custom loadouts will be implemented and viewing what you need to progress to a desired weapon will be made more apparent.

Other changes coming with this update include the elimination of dropsuit slot progression and a SKIN viewer, so you can look your shiny black best! If you haven't checked out Dust for a while, tomorrow looks like a great time to hop back in.

Played it at first launch, feels a lot like MAG(Team based shooter). I'll check it out again because they say and no PlanetSide 2 on PS3(Major let down)

It seemed like it had 0 use at launch. If you play D514 play with friends.

I used to play this around the time it came out and a bit after the first major update.

My expectations for this game were too high, shooting feels clunky and there's none of the player metagame that Eve is known for. At least back when i played a couple of years ago.

I might give it another try to see how it has improved though, from the looks of it they already added territory control.
