More beta-tastic goodness upon this snowy Monday: CCP have announced that Dust 514 - the free-to-play MMOFPS integrated into the EVE universe - will enter open beta on January 22nd.
Starting next Tuesday (how the hell are we in mid-January already! - Ed.), you'll be able to download and play the game for free.
"The launch of the Dust 514 Open Beta is another step towards our long-term vision for CCP and Eve," stated CCP head honcho, Hilmar Veigar Pétursson.
"But this is just the beginning. As we have done with Eve Online, in the coming weeks, and for years to come, we will continually improve upon and add to the Dust 514 experience, as well as add deeper integration between the two games and their communities."
Better yet, if you've already been getting stuck in, CCP have revealed that there'll be no resetting of the stats, so keep playing away to your heart's content.
