Get in beforehand for a nice bonus

After being available in closed beta for some time now on PlayStation 3, Dust 514 will be entering open beta on January 22, 2013, CCP Games announced today. And the timing couldn't be better.

Arguably the most interesting aspect of Dust 514 is the direct, real-time connection it shares with developer CCP's long-running MMO EVE Online, despite the two games being on different platforms. Last week, the studio united the titles on its Tranquility server, setting up the potential for some rather neat cross-community functionality.

With the arrival of this open beta, there will be no more character resets. Closed-beta players who take part in a match before the big day will get a 100,000 Skill Point bonus, which can be done by grabbing the Dust 514 Mercenary Pack (40,000 Aurum, items, and beta access) for $19.99 on the PlayStation Store.
