CCP Games has announced that its PS3-exclusive MMOFPS will enter open beta on January 22nd and will be available to download for free by anyone on PlayStation 3.
“The launch of the DUST 514 Open Beta is another step towards our long-term vision for CCP and EVE,” said Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, CEO of CCP. “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.”
As a special bonus, those who participated in the closed beta will receive 100,000 skill points to take into the open beta.
