The Kickstarter Has Taken Over!


This week we have a short update for the Dust site because we are helping the Kickstarter guys with the order review process. Things are moving along however the large number of orders and the option to swap so many products out has caused delays far beyond our expectations. Don’t worry though our site updates will get back in full swing next month as soon as we sort out all these orders. 

We have been receiving a lot of inquiries about Operation Achilles and the Sisters of Demolition not appearing in the Pledge Manager – don’t worry these have been automatically added to all applicable orders. Please note though that they cannot be swapped out for other items from the Kickstarter – if you have asked to swap them out for other models we will be in touch in due course.

Mission 4: Retrieve The Intel


During our escape we detonate explosives in the tunnel’s entrance to seal ourselves off from the advancing zombies. In the tunnels we meet up with a SSU pilot that was part of Pavel old unit. The pilot is quite shaken up. He was on a mission to deliver some key intelligence when the zombies struck. The man’s mind is broken but he was able to tell us that the solution to this problem lies inside a fallen KV-47 walker on the outskirts of town.

We continue our staff campaign this week with Mission 3: Hold The Town. As we fight to keep the Zombies at bay we begin to play around with our newly acquired Walkers. Chainsaws, flames and bullets will rain death upon the Zombie horde. 
 
"You have gathered all the resources that you could from the town, but while setting up the barricades the tunnel entrance has collapsed. Your men have been working around the clock to clear out the tunnel entrance but it is taking time, and that is something you are running desperately short of. Zombies are massing around the barricades and in the distance you can hear the sound of a buzz saw..."

Operation Babylon Kickstarter Pledge Manager

If you are a Kickstarter backer, no doubt you will know that the pledge manager is currently open, despite some initial delays.

This is an exciting time for Dust. We at Battlefront and Dust Studios are elated to see the dedication and affection of the Dust fans. So far around two-thirds of orders have been completed, which is a great start.

If you have not entered your order in the pledge manager yet, please do so soon. With the added complexity of this campaign, there have naturally been a few teething problems. 
So we will make sure we keep the pledge manager open until everyone has had a chance to place their order satisfactorily.If you have any trouble with entering your order, or if you have any questions, please email pledgemanager@battlefront.co.nz.

If you have already emailed and are waiting for a response, don't worry! Our team is currently sorting through the emails. It's quite time-consuming, and there is still a backlog, but rest assured they will get through all of your emails well before the pledge manager closes.

Mission 1 The Escape


When Andrew began working on his zombie-killing campaign, Incident 4156, there was no doubt that we would end up playing through. Personally I couldn’t resist building my own DUST hero and then letting them loose on packs of low-armoured zombie-shaped targets.
