CCP Sentinel's Ryan Geddes has officially invited fans to join the Dust 514 double skill point weekend on PlayStation 3 today!
To quote: As an immortal mercenary in DUST 514, Skill Points are your dearest friends. They're your path to better gear, faster movement, deeper customization and even social standing. And on the war-torn planetary battlefields of New Eden, they don't come cheap.
For an extended weekend, we're doubling the number of Skill Points our bullet-scarred beta testers will gain in every battle, from 1 November through 8 November. That means every headshot, NULL Cannon hack, dropship takedown - everything you do on the battlefield - will get you twice as close to your goal of galactic dominance.
Whether you're working toward building the ultimate tank commander, striving to become a megacorporation CEO or simply trying to piece together your own unique hybrid warrior class, every single Skill Point helps.
If you're already playing the beta, you won't want to miss the DUST 514 Double Skill Point Weekend. Our latest build, Codex, introduced new environments, weapons, avatars, equipment and a lot more. And if you haven't given the beta a shot yet, now is the perfect time to step onto into New Eden.
DUST 514 is a free-to-play first-person shooter set in the persistent, notorious sci-fi universe of EVE Online. It's only available on the PlayStation 3, and it's home to one of the best communities in gaming.
Our beta testers have been working behind the scenes to help CCP do something that's never been done on a game console. Together, we're taking shooters somewhere completely new, and we hope you'll come along for the ride.
We'll be giving away thousands of beta codes over the next few days, so keep an eye on your favorite gaming sites for a chance to pick up a beta code. You'll also want to watch our official Twitter and Facebook feeds - we'll be giving away codes there as well.
You can find out more at the official DUST 514 site, and sign up for the beta at the link below:
Thanks for playing. See you in New Eden.
