Dust 514 developer CCP promises 'near-monthly updates' coming to PS3 game

Developer CCP Games is promising "rapid-fire updates" for its free-to-play PlayStation 3 shooter Dust 514 as it looks to perfect the core systems of its Eve Online spin-off. In a recent update to its website, CCP says it's moving to a faster, more iterative update cycle over the next six months to meet Dust 514 player expectations.

"We are intensely devoted to delivering the best Dust 514 experience possible," wrote Atli Mar (aka CCP Praetorian), the game's creative director. "Over the next few releases, you'll see us polish the core gameplay systems (aiming and aim assist, controls, vehicle handling, movement on the battlefield) and improve on context and immersion (getting you into a battle, adding a welcome screen, and more). Planetary Conquest will also be getting a lot of love."

Dust 514's next update, Uprising 1.2, is scheduled to hit July 2. The release will include a new dropsuit role, The Commando, and introduce new Neo Dropsuits for all roles. Technical features, including new graphical updates and improvements to the game's speed, are also en route. Gameplay improvements for shooting, in the form of range-based damage modifiers for handheld weapons, are detailed on the game's website, along with a host of other changes.

Dust 514 was officially released for PS3 on May 14.
