[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

CCP Games is proud to announce that DUST 514 is officially in open beta, free to download and play  for anyone with a PlayStation®3.  Having recently connected DUST 514 with EVE Online , CCP has forged an unprecedented persistent single-shard universe of incredible depth and scale.  Now EVE Online ’s expansive New Eden Universe connects two different games across PC and console platforms in real time. This is the first time two games from different genres and different platforms, a PC space combat simulator and a console first-person shooter, have been linked together into one massive online gaming experience.

Now that DUST 514 has entered open beta, mercenaries will begin to shape their careers in earnest as there are no further character resets planned and every shot, every battle and every contract counts. Going forward, all skill upgrades, weapon choices, dropsuit selections and vehicle fittings will shape the fighting strategies and the battles of all mercenaries in DUST 514 .

The DUST 514 Open Beta is the next step towards CCP’s long-term vision for the EVE Universe. In the upcoming weeks, and for years to come, CCP will continually improve upon the overall DUST 514 experience, adding features, content, as well as deeper integration between the two games.

DUST 514 brings intense infantry combat, large-scale warfare and deep character advancement to the PlayStation 3 in an exclusive free-to-play massively multiplayer shooter. Set in, and integrated with, the massive universe of EVE Online , players wage war in this next generation of first-person shooter, where a single victory could prove the crushing blow to a galactic empire and thousands of online gamers.

DUST 514 is in open beta now and is available exclusively on PlayStation 3. For more information, visit www.dust514.com and follow the game on Facebook ( http://www.facebook.com/DUST514) and Twitter (@dust514).
