The beta for the free-to-play shooter DUST 514 on the PlayStation Network, begins today. While the game has been in closed beta for some time, today marks the first time where PSN users can access the shooter, and help CCP shape the game for its impending release.
The free to play shooter ties into the universe of Eve Online, with both games residing on the same servers within the company. The developers describe DUST 514 as a “full-fledged MMOFPS”, with a ton of customization and persistent features in the game.
Players can communicate between Eve Online and DUST 514, with some really interesting features in the shooter. With EVE Online focusing on starship command, these players can communicate with each other to coordinate oribital bombardments in the FPS.
Anyone with a PSN account can download and play DUST 514 on the PlayStation Network. For more details on the open beta, hit the PlayStation Blog for CCP’s recent post.
