EVE Online and Dust 514 servers back up after weekend DDoS attack

What makes EVE Online so exciting is that it gives players so much freedom to do cruel and thrilling things. This can also make players very angry. Developer CCP took down the servers for EVE and its PlayStation 3 FPS spin-off Dust 514 over the weekend following a nasty denial-of-service attack, and while we don't know who did it or why, let's just pretend it was someone enraged by the serious world of Internet spaceships; it's more fun that way.

Dust 514 moves to open beta, kicking off '10-year plan'

Today, Dust 514 makes its transition from closed beta to open beta. But what does that really mean? We spoke to CCP executive producer Brandon Laurino about the EVE Online shooter, and their plans for the future--near and far.

Dust 514 shows off its vehicles

EVE Online, the parent game to spin-off Dust 514, is focused heavily on massive ships exploring the depths of space. But Dust is a ground game, and requires more terrestrial vehicles for getting around and smiting your enemies. CCP has highlighted those vehicles in a new developer diary.
