Dust 514, the upcoming free-to-play, massively multiplayer online first person shooter, (or F2P MMO-FPS for those familiar with abbreviations), set in the EVE Universe is drawing nearer. Expected to be released later this year, the PlayStation 3 exclusive is currently running a closed beta, which will expand some time in the near future. Players of Dust will have the ability to team up with those playing EVE Online in order to wage battles, acquire territory, gain wealth and construct empires. Of course, for a lot of people, all that is just a recap.

At CCP’s annual EVE Fanfest convention in Iceland last month, Dust‘s Executive Producer Brandon Laurino, and its Creative Director Atli Mar Sveinsson treated audience members to a quick tease of the game, when they played it live onstage during the keynote presentation. For those of us who weren’t able to attend the presentation, we’ll just have to make do with some of the new screenshots of the game that have been released, like the one below.

In addition, there’s also been a cool new cinematic trailer released for the game. Hopefully that is enough to keep you satisfied until the game is released later this year.
