Looks like the guys in Iceland over at CPP Games are are bringing out more information regarding their upcoming shooter for the PS3. First things first: DUST 514 is going to be Free-2-Play! We'll be able to download the client from the PlayStation Network and get going immediately.

Secondly, DUST 514 is going to be tied into their existing MMO, EVE Online. What does that mean for players of DUST 514? Well, you'll be working with those of us playing EVE-Online in a persistent, single-shard universe, where your actions as groundpounders and our actions as flyboys really do have meaning and scope within the boundaries of the universe, our actions will affect one another, with disastrous consequences.

Thirdly, finally, and most importantly: the general public will be getting a hands-on go of this shooter at the EVE Online Fanfest happening March 22-24, in Reykjavik, Iceland!

“DUST 514 has everything you could want in a shooter: thrilling gameplay, spectacular graphics and an incredible strategic depth that comes from sharing the living universe of EVE Online,” said CCP CEO Hilmar Pétursson. “DUST 514 embodies the passion and creativity the world has come to expect from CCP, and we think PlayStation®3 owners will be amazed at the opportunity to play such a groundbreaking new game of this caliber for free.”

Closed private trials of DUST 514 began in December 2011 and will be organically expanding throughout the beta period. All Fanfest attendees will receive invitations to the private trial. The game is scheduled to launch later this year. Now i really wish I had gotten some tickets to Fanfest.

Full the full skinny, check out the press release over at CCP Games site.
