But as this epic trailer shows, you never have to fight alone. Thousands of fellow mercs are waiting to join forces and help you forge an empire that spans the stars.
You'll have the chance to master, customize, and wield every weapon in DUST 514 throughout your mercenary career, from tank-busting swarm launchers to disorienting scrambler pistols.
Titled “Way of the Mercenary”, the video takes a detailed look at what you will experience when you enter combat and create your own mercenary in DUST 514. Every skill upgrade, weapon choice, dropsuit selection and vehicle fitting will shape your fighting strategy and the battle ahead.
As they evolve their mercenaries, players can unlock more advanced vehicles, like Logistical Dropships to provide air support and Marauder HAVs, well-rounded armored units that hit hard. Like everything else in the game, each vehicle is infinitely customizable so its strengths can be amplified to better serve the player’s battlefield strategy. This ability, when used properly, will tip the balance of power in any battle.
Thorton describes in detail the heavy and light vehicles, as well as dropships that players can purchase, customize and upgrade in the game. These vehicles can be called in on demand, can have a major impact on the battlefield and can turn the tide for a team.
Every heart-pounding moment of this video, from rifle fire to full-on orbital bombardment, is actual gameplay footage from the current DUST 514 beta.
