Out on July 2, DUST 514's Uprising 1.2 patch will be the first of many rapid-fire updates released over the next few months.
CCP, the dev behind EVE Online and DUST 514 just announced the details of the most recent game update, Uprising 1.2. Chief among these is the addition of a new dropsuit role - the Commando. Along with this announcement came a promise from game director Atli Mar to "move into a faster, more iterative update cycle" regarding updates. Mar continued by saying, "We will be pushing out point releases (Update 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc.) on a near-monthly basis." This could very well be a response to early problems with fan dissatisfaction.
While news of future updates is exciting, don't forget about the one right under your nose. The new Commando dropsuit in Uprising 1.2 lets you equip two light weapons for the first time, which makes it an unpredictable class. The patch also brings to the table new armor and shield energizers, along with improvements to shooting mechanics, sounds, and visuals.
The full patch notes will be available soon, and the update is out July 2. For more info, check out Mar's blog post about the update.
