DUST 514, the upcoming MMOFPS title from EVE Online's studio CCP, will begin its beta this April.

This news comes via a recent interview with CCP CEO Hilmar Petursson and CMO David Reid at GameTrailers.com, in which they acknowledge the beta has been available internally since December.

Closed beta sign-ups first went live late January, while CCP has promised the game would launch in the spring.

The game will also be available to play at this year's EVE Fanfest.
