The first wave of beta invites for DUST 514 will be going out on June 29th 2012 and will run throughout that weekend. If you don’t get invited in the initial phase, you may still get a chance as several invite phases are planned. Also, starting this week as part of Sony’s Virtual E3 experience, DUST 514 will be fully integrated intoPlayStation Home.
The DUST 514 Home Space is a great way for you to get up close and personal with the New Eden universe. The developers are making available a wave of 10,000 “All Access” Closed Beta invites that visitors to the DUST 514 Home Space can earn by completing all the activities inside.
Finally, DUST 514 will get a companion app on PlayStation Vita dubbed, DUST 514: Neocom. The app brings the feel and functionality from DUST 514 on PS3 to Vita, focusing on customization, communication and trade. Every character you use can be customized via DUST 514: Neocom, so you can create and edit customized fittings (load-outs) with a ton of different dropsuits, weapons, vehicles, items and more. You’ll also be able to use Neocom to access the in-game Mail system and Friends List, as well as use the Market to get new stuff for your character from the DUST 514 Marketplace using either ISK (in-game earned currency) or Aurum (purchased currency). DUST 514: Neocom is rolling out this year alongside DUST 514.
