CCP's Kristoffer Toubourg will soon be Riot's Kristoffer Touborg, as announced on the EVE Online lead designer's Facebook page. After five years working on the pioneering sci-fi MMO, he's trading the Bjorky shores of Iceland for the distinctly Guinessy city of Dublin to put his skills to use on Riot Games' League of Legends.
DUST 514 is a free-to-play first-person shooter from CCP, creators of EVE Online. PC players will get to set up contracts for PS3 players to complete. You'll even get to lay down orbital strikes on the console kids. Watch footage of the awe-inspiring first hit here.
But CCP haven't confirmed that Dust 514 is coming to PC... yet. This confuses me. Our rigs are meaty enough to pull off their target footage in real-time, and we already know how free-to-play mechanics work. Is it coincidence that PS3 Dust 514 has mouse and keyboard support, possibly making any future ports easier to manage? Or that it's uses the PC-compatible Unreal Engine? Also: what do the two mystery pillars that popped up during CCP's keynote represent?
