DUST 514 – New Beta screenshots from Gamescom

Today we’ve got some great new screens for you from CCP Games’ upcoming free-to-play massively multiplayer first-person shooter, DUST 514, exclusively on the PlayStation 3. Straight out of Gamescom and the latest build of the beta, these screens show DUST mercenaries taking the fight to one another with a variety of different weapons, armor and equipment at their disposal. There are also some screens highlighting the destruction vehicles can cause on the battlefield, particularly tanks and dropships.

From today until September 4, Sony PlayStation Plus subscribers will receive “exclusive” access to the DUST 514 closed beta. As always, Mercenary Pack purchases, and those who already have All-Access Passes can still access the closed beta, but new codes will not be distributed any other way during this time. Those interested can learn more about the Mercenary Pack by visiting

Today also marks an important milestone in the DUST 514 beta as it ushers in the “Precursor” release. This update includes the first live DUST/EVE Online integration, Orbital Strike framework, instant battle matchmaking, new environments, keyboard and mouse support, and tons of other enhancements.

One of the most anticipated titles of the year, 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 the next generation of first-person shooters, where a single victory could prove the crushing blow to a galactic empire of thousands of online gamers.

DUST 514 is currently in closed beta and is set to enter Open Beta in 2012, exclusively on PlayStation 3. For more information, visit and follow the game on Facebook and Twitter (@dust514).
