DUST 514 Public Beta Set For April
When it comes to a game as huge as DUST 514, one just assumes a beta is inevitable.
But until GDC 2012, developer CCP hasn't said much about a public beta test for the game that takes place in the EVE Online universe. However, while we still don't have an exact date, we do have a beta availability window for the highly anticipated MMOFPS: April.
During an informative interview with GameTrailers (see the video below), CCP CEO Hilmar Petursson and CMO David Reid offered up some new information, and also provided a whole lot of new gameplay footage. Then Petursson said:
"It is really about providing this new gateway into the EVE universe for all the people who have been intrigued by it. In April we'll open up the beta test we've been running since December of last year."
They also wanted to make it clear that DUST 514 isn't EVE Online's replacement, so fans of the latter don't have to worry about it disappearing. Lastly, don't forget that DUST 514 has gone free-to-play on the PS3, and even Vita owners can check out a "companion app."
