I guess today is the day to write about games getting to open beta.
Today the fine people at CCP announced that their EVE Online integrated console shooter, DUST 514, is now in open beta.
Previously DUST 514 beta access was open to anybody with an active EVE Online account and a PlayStation 3. Now it is open to anybody. I am not sure if that really broadens the audience by much.
Are there a lot of people who don’t play EVE Online interested in playing DUST 514? There is certainly doubt about that in some quarters.
But it seems that if you want the real deal about what is going on, you should go look at the mighty, meaty, Monster DUST 514 beta review post that Winterblink has finally unleashed on the world.
I am still not sure when I will ever get around to playing it. The NHL hockey season finally got under way, which means that the TV where our PlayStation 3 is hooked up is spoken for most evenings.
But it is out there.
Which will mean more people in local in EVE in some systems.
And maybe, some day, I’ll drop a rock or something on them.
