MMO shooter “Project Legion” to PC market
CCP announced at Fanfest that 5.2 million player "clones" have been killed in Dust 514 so far; for context, Battlefield 3 registered 1.5 billion kills during its limited beta in 2011 which was less than stellar uptake.
Despite this , they are bringing an MMO Shooter to PC called "Project Legion" that executive producer Jean-Charles Gaudechon has described as being a free-to-play skill-based competitive multiplayer shooter wirth an open-world sandbox element that involves fighting environmental threats and looting materials from those battles. This loot, will be tradeable in an in-game economy involving free-market trading between players that sounds very similar to strict economy that is a major driving force.
Gaudechon has told Eurogamer that Legion will be Unreal 4 based, and made by the same team as Dust 514 applying everything they have learned from making and supporting that game so we reckon it's going to be a doozy.
