PlayStation Plus subscribers eager to try out CCP Games’ upcoming MMOFPS Dust 514 will be able to jump into the fray next week. A special closed beta event for subscribers will run from August 21 to September 4, but they won’t be alone, as they will be joined by gamers who bought the game’s Mercenary Pack or the All-Access Pass. August 21 also marks the day of the Precursor release, which begins the process of integrating Dust 514 and Eve Online, adding the ability for players to call in orbital strikes, access new environments, and utilize instant battle matchmaking.
PS Plus subscribers will also receive a 50% discount on the Mercenary Pack, which allows for unlimited access during the beta, extra in-game currency, skills boosts, and special equipment. Non-subscribers will have to wait a bit longer to get their time in Dust, but not too much longer, as the game is set to reach Open Beta later this year.
One of the most anticipated titles of the year, Dust 514 brings intense infantry combat, large-scale warfare and deep character advancement to the PlayStation 3 in an exclusive free-to-play massively multiplayer shooter. Set in, and integrated with, the massive universe of Eve Online, players wage war in the next generation of first-person shooters, where a single victory could prove the crushing blow to a galactic empire of thousands of online gamers.
