76w ago - Dust 514 Community Manager Phil Wang has announced that the Mercenary Pack arrives on PSN today and grants Beta Access this Thursday with details below, as follows:
Later this year, there will be an unprecedented level of combat in gaming raging across the entire EVE Universe, from the mighty capsuleers far above in Eve Online, to the relentless onslaught you and your squad will bring to bear against your enemies on countless planets in DUST 514.
The first, harrowing drumbeats of war started not long ago and have been increasing ever since during our beta tests. Until today, this has been of very limited scope while we've introduced some of the EVE Universe's most faithful players to planetary warfare and trickled in some of the earliest of adopters who have picked up their rifles and laid low the opposition.
But that all changes this weekend when we'll be opening the doors to thousands of new combatants through our beta events. There's still time to sign up over at our official Beta Web site to participate in this important, and early, testing period for the game.
Signing up for the beta and playing DUST 514 is completely free! But for those who want to try an assortment of the pay-for items, get guaranteed access to beta weekends,...
