Summary

DUST 514 is easily the most indepth FPS game out there and with an admission fee of €0.00 there is no reason at all for you not to check out what could be your go-to FPS for the next 5-10 years.

We like

  • Free-to-play
  • Deep customisation and skill progression
  • 1 year of development down, 10+ to go!

We dislike

  • A few bugs and technical issues
  • Some of the dropsuit racial variations are not yet in game
