You may have noticed Dust 514 in our Most Anticipated for 2013 list this morning, and well…you now have the chance to see what all the fuss is about as the game just went open beta! CCP has issued a statement to announce it, but they’ve also tossed us a few screenshots of the game in action and a trailer to kick things off. Here’s what we know:
CCP Games is proud to announce that DUST 514 is officially in open beta, free to download and play for anyone with a PlayStation®3. Having recently connected DUST 514 with EVE Online, CCP has forged an unprecedented persistent single-shard universe of incredible depth and scale. Now EVE Online’s expansive New Eden Universe connects two different games across PC and console platforms in real time. This is the first time two games from different genres and different platforms, a PC space combat simulator and a console first-person shooter, have been linked together into one massive online gaming experience.
The game is what you might refer to as “gorgeous”, but don’t take my word for it – check out the video while you download the beta on your PS3!
