Eve Online developer CCP Games announced Project Legion for PC, a spiritual counterpart of sorts to PS3-exclusive first-person shooter Dust 514, today during their annual Eve Online Fanfest.
CCP shared little about about Project Legion, stating only that they wanted to marry the openness and sandbox-style nature of Eve to a shooter like Dust (something PC users have been clamoring for, since Dust is a PlayStation 3 exclusive). The Shanghai-based studio working on Project Legion are only a few months into development.
Like Dust, Project Legion is being designed around the free-to-play model. The two games will not, however, interact with one another. And while Dust may have served as a springboard, the developers regard Project Legion as its own thing rather than an evolution of what they’ve done in the past.
