Dust 514 now in open beta on the PlayStation 3

Space lasers!

CCP's ambitious first-person shooter Dust 514 is now in open beta. The free-to-play shooter, as you may already know, is linked to EVE Online, the crazy space game that's an actual viable export of Iceland. I'm not joking. 

The game will officially launch later this year, but until then CCP plans on improving Dust 514 on a regular basis. The big hook to the game is that players in EVE can rain down space lasers on targets you designate on the ground while playing Dust 514. There's a whole economy system in place, so EVE and Dust players will benefit from working together. 

In the match I played at a recent preview event, I saw a number of EVE attacks hit my enemies, and my own team too. I like the overall idea to the concept, but based on the latest hands-on I don't see myself getting too invested.

My main gripe is with the player cap. Right now they're at 32, and eventually they want to get to 48-players per map. Hopefully that happens sooner than later as the maps are so big that it gets a little boring trying to find people to kill. There's still a lot of work that needs to be done before this one grabs my attention.
