While the world waits for that coveted DUST 514 beta access email to come through, CCP and Sony are offering you a much easier way to guarantee yourself beta access, but it's going to run you $20.00.
Starting today, players can purchase the Mercenary Pack which will give them a host of DUST 514 in-game goodies, but most importantly, you will be getting guaranteed access to all of DUST 514's beta events - the first of which, conveniently, starts this Thursday, June 28th. Along with beta access, players are going to get a bunch of in-game currency and exclusive items. As CCP puts it, the Mercenary Pack 'provides players an arsenal of gear, game currency and a booster to expand their opportunities on the battlefield.'
All told, the items you'll be getting in exchange for your $20.00 include...
- 4,000 Aurum, DUST 514 in-game currency ($20 value)
- 30-Day Active Skill Booster (50% SP boost)
