What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“D.U.S.T. is a long term project that we envision and Early Access provides both time and support.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It will be out of Early Access when it is ready.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“D.U.S.T is undergoing a massive change, not just few game play changes, but to an extent that may change the very core of the game and its game play. In light of this, it is difficult to predict what the final version will be.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“D.U.S.T. is a multiplayer FPS platform that supports up to 100+ players. However, many features are yet to come and is undergoing massive changes.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Nothing is set yet, but it is mostly likely to change over time.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We welcome suggestions and is open to discussion.”

Weekly Development Log #13

Alright guys, so I've working on the urban map lately and figured I'd share what I've been doing. Only a building is textured, but I think we can what it will be like when it is ready :D I've also been optimizing world geometry to minimize lag as well.

I also expect to release an update to the dev branch Feb 9~10th with more areas open for the training range. It is definitely taking more time than I expected to make comprehensive tutorials.

Also, if anyone still doesn't know how to launch the dev branch, simply go into the DUST directory and run DUST.exe inside the Dev_Branch folder.

That's it for today!

About This Game


So, another multiplayer FPS that claims to be "real", what's the deal?
There are hundreds of them and we all know that realism isn't really there. There are few that comes close, but not quite there. Hell, I was so into realism that I eventually decided to make one instead of looking. D.U.S.T. was not made to be "better" or to be more "real", it was made to do it right. So here is a brief feature list.

Total Control Weapon
Pull the charging handle, slap the bolt catch. Turn the elevation dials and set the focus on scopes. Gone are the days of a weapon that is capable of reality bending physics. Our motto is, If you can do it real life, then you can also do it in DUST. If it is missing, even the smallest thing, let us know and we will add it.

An open level (4km x 4km) 128 player game.
Team driven fire fight at long distances for seasoned and to be more exact, veteran, hardcore FPS players. Please note that the initial release will be limited to 64 player games.

Total Weapon Modification

Having the ability to change scopes and suppresors is not considered enough. D.U.S.T. allows you to change the barrel, twist ratio, thickness, trigger, bolt carrier group, scopes, grenade launchers, handles, rails, magazines, round grain types and so on. We are actively adding and widening the modification level.

Physics driven ballistics.
That means gravity, air resistance, ricochet, fragmentation etc. Everything should be there is there

One shot, one kill gameplay.
Gone are the days of health regeneration or a number driven health system. A bullet will and definitely kill you.

Extended view distance.
Clear view of 4000m+, that means no more fogs, no more popping in enemies. There is just realistic atmospheric scatter.
