CCP: Eve Online FanFest attendees will be first to join Dust 514 beta

Eurogamer:

Those who attended the Eve Online FanFest event in Reykjavik, Iceland in March will be the first invited to participate in the Dust 514 beta, CCP Games has confirmed.
There had been confusion over the status of the closed beta, which is currently running, with some Eve Online fans complaining about apparent preferential treatment to PlayStation Network users.

Good! This is the real way to do a beta. Dont give access to anyone who just takes up space on your server, only let those who truly care about its success test it. EVE players are the best candidates for this so im happy they are only allowing access to their REAL dedicated fans.

Lucky people! Would love to try this out early. Cant wait to get my hands on it!

Will their be an open beta for PS3 users? i really wanna see if this game will live to it's potential.

Yea it's called the actual game release since it will be Free 2 Play. If you are going to do an open beta that anyone can join, why not just release it since it will be free anyway? LOL

Open Beta in June.

@DaCajun

Currently there is a Closed Beta (Pre alpha build v0.1 of the Mordu's Private Trials), there are already PS3 players in the beta.

Don't forget the game is merged in the same server of another MMO EVE Online, CCP will release an Open beta with new updates to stress and optimize the server, if there are serious problems with EVE Online server, DUST 514 will have problems also or viceversa.

The big matches will be added hopefully in the open beta in June, this includes the big ships and every feature to use for the Mercs and battlefield, something not available in the current closed beta.

I think its internal though for beta testers at Sony.

You made a good point too. I myself am an EVE player and if Dust 514 screws up for PS3 players it screws up EVE's planet invading mechanic. Theres a lot riding on this for CCP and its probably the biggest risk a dev has taken in the past decade.
