DUST 514 Vehicle Developer Diary Talks Tactics and Free Virtual Swag

on December 1, 2012 1:16 AM

CCP Games vehicle game designer Ryan Thorton is back with another vehicle diary, this time detailing the different ways players use vehicles on the field.

With emphasis on customization, players may heavily fortify dropships to make them resistant to damage, and so act great as a transport; or drive LAV’s (light-attack vehicles) up hills in order to launch themselves up into the air and scale obstacles they normal can’t climb.

CCP Games also wants players to know that later today is “Server Swarm Saturday.” In order to rest the server, CCP wants to pack as many “immortal mercenaries” into New Eden as possible, to see if the system can take it, or need a patch.

The Swarm will be between 19:00 and 23:00 UTC (2:oo PM to 6:00 PM ET). Anyone who participates will be rewarded four free permanent skinweave dropsuits (which you can see above).
