This is unique in the console world because Sony is working with CCP to "evolve the submission processes" to better accommodate the likes of MMOs. CCP also outline update 1.2
An all-new dropsuit role is being implemented in the next update. The Commando lets you equip two light weapons, and offers "extreme versatility" at a cost to damage.
"...we have decided to move into a faster, more iterative update cycle. We will be pushing out point releases (Update 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc.) on a near-monthly basis. This is unique in the console space, only possible because our friends at Sony work with us to evolve the submission processes to suit free-to-play massively multiplayer titles like DUST," CCP.
"Throughout road-mapping the update process, we have focused on fixing and perfecting our core game systems. Over the next few releases, you’ll see us polish the core gameplay systems (aiming and aim assist, controls, vehicle handling, movement on the battlefield) and improve on context and immersion (getting you into a battle, adding a welcome screen, and more). Planetary Conquest will also be getting a lot of love."
