Dust 514

CCP Games' upcoming EVE Online FPS Dust 514 will be the first free-to-play offering of its kind on the PlayStation 3 when it launches later in 2012, but you can claim a guaranteed place in the upcoming beta by purchasing a Mercenary Pack right now. The just-announced download doubles as beta access and bonus DLC, coming out to a $19.99 purchase on the PlayStation Network.

In addition to all of the virtual goods you receive with your purchase of a Mercenary Pack there's also guaranteed access to all of the game's upcoming beta events, starting with one that kicks off on Thursday, June 28. Separate from the official "Beta Events," you'll also be buying yourself access to the game during off-weekends. It's still possible to just luck out and gain access to the ongoing testing phase as well, by signing up for the beta on the Dust 514 website.

Your $20 also buys you a hefty sampling of virtual goods for the game, content that would normally cost $50 if purchased a la carte. Here's the full rundown of e-goods included with the Mercenary Pack, ripped straight from the press release:

  • 4,000 Aurum ($20 USD value) - the in-game currency for DUST 514 that you can buy in the PS Store
  • 30-dat Active Skill Booster - increases earned Skill Points (SP) by 50%
  • 'Dragonfly' Scout Dropuit - a uniquely designed armor with unlimited use
  • 'Toxin" ICD-9 Submachine Gun with unlimited use and a custom skin
  • HK4M Shotgun X 50
  • Hacked Drop Uplink x 50 - allows players to create on-the-spot spawn points for their teammates
  • Fused Locus Grenade x 50
  • 1.5dn Myofibril Stimulant x 50 - offers players a temporary melee damage boost against opponents
  • All Access Beta Pass - allows players to participate in every Beta Event, as well as additional play sessions during off weekends
