One year ago, DUST 514 headed to open beta. The ground war extension of the EVE Online universe has undergone some massive changes since that time, integrating its gameplay deeper into the universe of its PC space combat counterpart and further refining its combat mechanics.

DUST 514 didn’t officially launch until May last year, but CCP still wants to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the open beta milestone. So what does that mean for you? If you’re subscribed to the newsletter you’ll be receiving 100x HK4M Shotguns to give your enemies an unpleasant anniversary surprise. DUST 514 vets that registered before 11AM GMT on May 11th, 2013 may also receive some other fun stuff.

"DUST 514 veterans - those who joined before 11AM GMT on 14 May 2013 – may also receive 50x 'Hellmar' Sentinel ak.0 dropsuits* prefitted with the ‘Steelmine’ Boundless Heavy Machine Gun, ‘Hercules’ Complex Armor Plates, ‘Carnifax’ Locus Grenades and more."
