CCP Games, developer of the space sim MMO EVE Online, has today announced that their free-to-play multiplayer first-person shooter Dust 514 is now out of beta and available to play on PlayStation 3.
â€śDUST 514 has been forged by the willpower and skills of the players who have joined us on the journey to launch, and the talent and determination of our development teams around the world,â€ť said CCP CEO Hilmar Veigar PĂ©tursson. â€śWe are now poised for the next phase of development of DUST 514 and the EVE Universe. We are off to a fantastic start, and ahead is the opportunity to expand even further what games can become. After a decade of preparing for this moment, we will at last see the emerging society of DUST players begin to fight gun-and-grenade for planetary dominance, alongside their EVE Online brethren. For all we have done so far, our best moments are yet to come.â€ť
Alongside the launch of Dust 514, CCP Games has also revealed three "premium packs" with each one offering additional in-game benefits. Starting at $19.99, the packs will offer an amount of in-game currency along with boosters, weapons, gear, dropsuits and vehicles. You can check out each one on the official PlayStation store or here
