DUST 514 Open Beta: January 22nd

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.
