We have written frequently about EVE Online including the ever growing popularity of the game with EVE Online passing 300,000 subscribers after 6 years.
Well now CCP Games has announced a new EVE Online console MMORPG code named DUST 514 which will be kind of like a First Person Shooter version of the game. Major additions include battle on the surface of the planets with ground infantry.
DUST 514 a Starship Troopers MMORPG?
Is the DUST 514 the step to making EVE a Starship Troopers massively multiplayer online role playing game?

Check out the below video with footage from DUST 514 and the presentation. The video is about 5 minutes long.
