Shortly after announcing the successful merging of the servers for their PlayStation 3 MMO and EVE Online, CCP Games has announced that DUST 514 will enter open beta on January 22.
“The launch of the Dust 514 open beta is another step towards our long-term vision for CCP and EVE,” says Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, CCP’s CEO. “But this is just the beginning. As we have done with EVE Online, in the coming weeks, and for years to come, we will continually improve upon and add to the Dust 514 experience, as well as add deeper integration between the two games and their communities.”
CCP also mentioned that there will be no character resets after the open beta begins.
