The Dust 514 Open Beta is coming to an end shortly, after months of testing, but the good news is that the full game will be launching in May 2013. The beta will come to an end on May 14th 2013, but will be replaced with the full free-to-play version. The Uprising update will also be released on the same day, adding a ton of new stuff to the game.
The Uprising update will give the game a major graphics update and add new features like player controlled Planetary Conquest. You can expect more updates and DLC in the future. “We have more major updates throughout 2013 and for years to come, just like we have done with EVE Online for the past 10 years,” says Brandon Laurino, Executive Producer for Dust 514.
