Dust 514 and Eve Online Servers Merge Tomorrow

Posted on January 9, 2013 AT 07:21am

CCP has announced that Dust 514 and Eve Online‘s servers will be merged tomorrow, signalling the end of a long journey.

From tomorrow Eve Online players will be able to interact with Dust 514 beta players. “This is a massive technical and game design endeavor and so the overlap in gameplay is intentionally contained for now. It is of course very important that we do not upset the serious business of internet spaceships,” the developer said.

Money will not be transferable between games to begin with, however CCP has stated that it will look at this in the future. “So, for this first release, any ISK transfer between EVE and DUST characters will be blocked. This will then be replaced by a taxable transfer mechanism with the intention of easing the currency control to 0% and removing it entirely once we are happy the economies have reached an equilibrium.”
