Dust 514′s skill tree will take seven years to max out!
Now there’s commitment. Creative director Atli Mar revealed during Dust 514‘s keynote address at EVE Fanfest that it would take seven years to unlock every character stat in the game.
While demoing a battle he said, “Our skill system is similar to the one in EVE online. It uses passive scaling, you earn points that you spend and active scaling that you earn in battles.”
As they were scrolling through a daunting array of weapons and abilities he then casually added, “At current scaling it takes seven years to earn all this.”
The demo also showed EVE online players orbiting a planet where a PlayStation 3 game was taking place. They were then given targeting coordinates by a Dust 514 player for an orbital strike that was launched in EVE on PC and then rained down on enemy troops in the PS3 game. I won’t lie, it looked impressive.
