If you’re a former player of DUST 514, you may want to check back in to see what’s new and maybe even get a few in-game items. CCP is hosting a “Welcome Back to DUST 514” event. Former players that have an inactive account have still been accruing passive Skill Points while they were away, but CCP has an extra incentive for those that have been away even longer. If you have an account that’s been inactive for at least 60 days, you can return to DUST and receive 100 copies of both the Black Eagles Scout Dropsuit and the Quafe Scout Dropsuit.

DUST 514’s “Welcome Back” event will run through Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013, so be sure to claim your new dropsuits before then.

Did you play DUST 514 before, but weren't impressed? Perhaps the mechanics weren't polished enough for you, you had issues in Planetary Conquest, or were otherwise just not happy with it. But did you know about the many changes that have happened in DUST 514 over the past several months?

Since Uprising 1.0 was released on May 7th, we have made numerous improvements to the game:

  • Rebalanced dropsuits, weapons, and modules to give more flexibility to fittings and reduce “instant win” weapons.

  • Improved aiming and controls

  • Reworked vehicles

  • Several new maps

  • Improved matchmaking

Remember, even if you haven't played DUST, you've still been accruing passive Skill Points the entire time, so you can jump back in and train up to get your skills up to snuff. But we're not just telling you to use what you've already got. In addition, we'll be offering anyone who has had an account inactive for at least 60 days who comes back the following gifts:

  • 100 copies of the Black Eagles Scout Dropsuit

  • 100 copies of the Quafe Scout Dropsuit

So come back, give DUST 514 another try, and get some slick dropsuits to storm onto the battlefield.
