CCP Games has today launched the open beta phase for the hugely popular DUST 514. The PlayStation 3 exclusive is now free to download and play for everyone who owns the console.
By uniting DUST 514 and EVE Online on the same single-shard server, CCP has accomplished something unprecedented in videogame history: a single persistent online universe of incredible depth and scale that bridges the PC and console platforms in real time. Furthermore, this marks the first time two videogames from different genres, a space combat simulator and a first-person shooter, have been linked together into one, massive online experience.
“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 Games. “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.”
Now Eve Online‘s New Eden is an even bigger and more diversified universe where two videogames of interstellar combat exist concurrently and impact each other constantly. DUST 514 is available for all PlayStation 3 gamers from today and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest from CCP Games.
