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.

Dust 514 is really great with the new September updates. No other game will provide with the equivalent depth of game, strategy and challenge.

The following Dust 514 link provides a bonus Recruit Assault Rifle and a 7-Day Active Skill Booster:


Do not miss to explore what's above your head and the massive space battles going on! Would you not want to be the one delivering orbital strikes or contracting Dust 514 mercenaries directly?

Here is a link for your free 21-days trial key of EVE Online:


Good luck! I look forward to fighting side by side with you in space too!

It's unfortunate that while Dust 514 took a great leap forward graphically with the arrival of the Uprising build, the general gungame suffered. A lot of discord followed on the official forums and player numbers dropped in the face of CCP's silence. However, it now looks like the devs have realised the error of their ways and are communicating far more often with the playerbase and have committed themselves to monthly updates to the game. There's hope again for Dust 514, and now might be a good time to jump in before Uprising 1.2 arrives July 2nd. The new Academy feature should ensure that new players have time to settle in to the mechanics and controls before they face far more powerful and experienced veteran players, and moreover new players are able to receive a few bonus items to help them along the way, such as a permanent assault rifle and a skill booster if they sign up to Dust 514 via the link below:
