CCP Games announced that Dust 514 will be moving to Open Beta on January 22nd. On January 10th a major milestone was accomplished when CCP merged Dust 514 with EVE Online. What does this mean? CCP bridged the gap for PC and Console games by merge these servers together in this universe which is pretty incredible.
Here’s what Hilmar Veigar Petursson (CEO of CCP) had to say: “The launch of the DUST 514 Open Beta is another step towards our long-term vision for CCP and EVE, “But this is just the beginning. As we have done with EVE Online, in the coming weeks, and for years to come, we will continually improve upon and add to the DUST 514 experience , as well as add deeper integration between the two games and their communities.”
If you wanna play now, pick up the Dust 514 Mercenary Pack which gives you 40,000 Aurum, in game items which you get to keep when you go into the beta. Make sure you play a match before the 22nd though, you get 100,000 skill points for that. For more information and details, visit the forums.
