CCP announces Dust 514 Mercenary Pack

In advance of its first Dust 514 Beta Event that starts this Thursday, CCP has announced a booster pack of sorts called the Mercenary Pack that players can buy for $19.99 at the PSN Store.

The Pack is filled with weapons, armor, Aurum (in-game currency) and a Skill Booster that will enhance players’ abilities on the field of battle. Perhaps most importantly, buying the Mercenary Pack will guarantee players access to every Dust 514 Beta Event.

Players who want to get a shot at beta testing without purchasing the Mercenary Pack can go to and hope they can chosen at random. The Pack is available at www.dust514/mercpack.

CCP is calling the Mercenary Pack a $50 value. Basically it’s $20 worth of Aurum plus $30 worth of weapons, armor and equipment. Here’s the complete list from the press release:
