A new Dust 514 app for PlayStation Vita has also been detailed. Dust 514: Neocom will allow players to interact with the game and your in-game friends while not playing on PS3.

Neocom allows you to customise characters and load-outs, communicate with other players via the in-game mail system and purchase items from the Dust 514 marketplace. It will launch later this year alongside the main game.

Dust 514 will be integrated into PlayStation Home, too. Players who log on can nab an "all access" beta key, ensuring them access to all of the game's beta events.
