The universe shared by PlayStation 3 shooter Dust 514 and PC MMO EVE Online will be permanently altered at the end of an upcoming tournament.
The Prime League Tournament is explained in-lore as a follow-up to Mordu’s Challenge; according to the shooter’s ongoing story, the Legion wants to establish which merc group is the best in order to assess whether it could take it on head-on.
As such, it’s sponsoring a tournament by offering ISK, equipment, and the chance to rename a planet in New Eden as prizes.
The tournament will be open to 24 teams each from North America and Europe. DUST 514 players who are either CEOs or directors of their corporation can register their corporation, submitting a full team list. Matches begin on August 12,and will be held on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays through September 4 between 8:30PM and 10:00PM CT and GMT for NA and EU respectively. Championship matches begin September 9 and end on September 18.
