The DUST 514 Beta is now is now open to all PSN gamers who want to take part. After several months of closed beta testing, the developers have lifted the access restrictions on this free-to-play game to get more feedback from the community to further improve the title.
DUST is a PS3-exclusive triple-A free-to-play MMOFPS (massively multiplayer online first person shooter), directly set in and connected in real time with the science fiction universe of EVE Online. DUST is completely free-to-play for anyone with a PS3 and can be downloaded directly from the PlayStation Store. There are no restrictions. All features, maps, game modes, skills, dropsuits, vehicles and module groups are fully accessible, and since it’s a massive multiplayer game you’ll never run out of content; the war never ends.
While DUST 514 does offer exclusive items that must be bought with AUR credits (microtransaction currency, purchased through the PSN store), it’s important to note that these items do not provide players with an unfair in-game advantage.
Unlike most other console games, the expansions are free to download too. While you can purchase AUR items for real money, in the game, you will never need to pay for a map pack. DUST is a free to play MMO that will be maintained and evolved for years to come.
