DUST 514 Mercenary Pack Launches Ahead of Tomorrow’s Beta [EU Now Live]

Today CCP Games has announced the brand-new Mercenary Pack for its upcoming free-to-play massively multiplayer first-person shooter (FPS), DUST 514, which is available now exclusively on the PlayStation 3. The Mercenary Pack provides players with an arsenal of gear, videogame currency and a booster to expand their opportunities on the battlefield. The pack also includes exclusive items, rewarding early adopters with uniquely styled armour and weapons, in addition to an all-access pass to the closed-beta program running throughout the summer. (DUST 514, PS3)

Whos gonna buy dlc for a game they havnt even played yet? id like to try it, but im not paying for anything until ive tried it

I like the looks of DUST514 but i cant get the feeling that it looks like something ive already bought a played, Section 8

Me and all my friends who have been in the beta the past month or so. If you are serious at all about this game the investment is more then worth it...

Comparing this game directly to Section 8 just shows your total lack of knowledge of it. In simplistic terms its a blend of MAG, Sec 8, BF and Star Hawk (to a degree). But it's sooooooooo much deeper then any of those games by a long long way and it's doing so many Firsts with HUGE plans for the next few years. Practically endless number of maps/content to be released (with tons of variety) and FREE updates/expansions for as long as the game is around.

I recommend it a LOT. In the Beta, and with this new update it's amazing. A lot like Halo, but much deeper. Also, we haven't even seen the huge modes with up to 5x5 KM of game space, and tons of players.

Currently it's 24 v 24, but that will be extended soon enough.

24 v 24? what beta you in, all i see is 12 v 12 and 16 v 16.

They call it F2P.... lol

The final game is free to play but there are also things you can buy in game with real money, just like every other F2P game out there. If you actually read instead of just picking out key words, you'd see that this gets you a bunch of exclusive content like armor and in game credits. Plus it gets you into the privet beta, which if you knew how crazy some gamers get, is something that people pay a lot for on eBay. Any time beta invites go out for games like Halo or CoD, check out eBay to see how much those codes go for

It is f2p though x3

And....no. It's not pay to win at all. I'm using an upgraded dropsuit, and demolishing paid guys. Its all about skill. Also, most of the high-end free weapons and stuff (of which there are hundreds) are better than paid stuff.

I played the beta last night, its fun and I can customize my soldier. I'm glad its free to play. I might drop about 20 bucks on in game stuff. Everything can be earned without money.

They give you 4,000 Arurum with the pack which comes out to around $20 in real money. So you basically get your money back as In game credits.

And more stuff.

I want to get into this beta. Damn i never received an email.

On another note i think this model of business if very smart and welcome it with open arms. You entice the potential faithfuls with a free game and then once their hooked they can buy cool stuff if they choose to.

Just like PS Home i wouldn't buy anything there and i hardly go in it, but when i do see whats new and go in i see so many ppl in it with paid costumes and accessories.

go to the dust514 area in playstation home, talk to the recruiter, play a game of slayer and then watch the 5 movies,if you do that your should get a beta key. Peace:-)

They already ran out of open beta spaces. : / No beta key for me.
neutralgamer19  +   1200d ago
You serious? I went to Home and when i went to the Dust area it was closed off and saud VIP. But if it works ill pm you my appreciation lol

He meant the Event Horizon space, not the Dust area in the E3 space.
