DUST 514's Uprising 1.4 patch will finally force its FPS players to pay dues to The Man.
DUST 514 and EVE Online may be interconnected and share an in-game universe, but they're still very different experiences. DUST is your traditional arena-based FPS shooter, albeit with a sci-fi twist, while EVE is a large-scale space simulator and role-playing game. Despite the differences, one feature unites both titles beyond their individual genres: Corporate bureaucracy. For example, DUST 514's incoming update will implement a new corporate taxation system, reminding all players that even in-game, sometimes you have to pay your dues to The Man.
When the update goes live, CEOs and Directors will be able to set a single tax rate that applies to DUST 514 and EVE Online players within the corporation. Once set, every time a player earns 100,000+ ISK in a match, this designated percentage will be immediately transferred into company holdings. Corporations are free to spend collected taxes however they wish, although investing it back into company employees and assets is probably the wisest choice.
Income tax has been a EVE Online feature for some time now, so it's not entirely unexpected that DUST 514 players would have to contribute as well. That said, income tax is entirely optional, so any objectivist corporations out there are free to give employees a non-deducted paycheck.
The Uprising 1.4 update goes live on September 3rd.
