CCP Games' Dust 514which has seemingly been in beta for an eternity, finally has an official launch date. The free-to-play first-person-shooter will launch for PS3 on May 14, 2013.

Dust 514 is truly groundbreaking as players in Dust 514 play a vital role in the actions of CCP's MMO EVE Online and vice versa. As the battles play out in Dust 514, the outcome of each ground battle impacts the persistent universe of EVE Online's New Eden. Mercenaries can gain the advantage by coordinating attacks with starship pilots in EVE Online, calling down devastating orbital strikes against the opposing squads.

Don't let the free-to-play nature of Dust 514 scare you away. Aside from a unique gameplay experience, it offers an ever-progressing system where you can earn fortunes as you battle alongside like-minded EVE Online players. The money earned in Dust 514 can be used to customize your mercenary with weapons and gear that will help you on the battlefield.
