DUST 514, the free-to-play, massively multiplayer first-person shooter, will enter Open Beta on January 22, CCP Games has announced.

The launch of the open beta is possible thanks to the January 10 merger of DUST 514 with EVE Online on the Tranquility server hosting the EVE Universe.

"The launch of the DUST 514 Open Beta is another step towards our long-term vision for CCP and EVE," said Hilmar Veigar P├ętursson, CEO of CCP. "But this is just the beginning. As we have done with EVE Online, in the coming weeks, and for years to come, we will continually improve upon and add to the DUST 514 experience, as well as add deeper integration between the two games and their communities."

The DUST 514 open beta will be open to all PS3 users.
