CCP has finally announced the shift of DUST 514 into Open Beta on January 22nd, meaning that the NDA will be dropped and that we can get some non-sanitized reportage of the game. This isn't a huge surprise, given that CCP recently moved DUST onto the Tranquility server; the full press release can be found here, but doesn't contain much besides the date.
DUST faces a number of hard questions in the market: is its status as F2P on the PS3 enough to make it a popular game? Does the link with EVE differentiate DUST enough from games like Planetside 2 to have a unique draw? Is it any good? We'll have full reviews and tire-kickings when Open Beta begins.
