Miner Wars 2081 Enters Closed Beta

The Miner Wars Website announces the launch of closed beta testing of Miner Wars 2081, following extensive alpha testing of the upcoming first-person space action/simulation game. Like the alpha, the beta is open to customers who preorder the game, and here is word on where development stands:

Miner Wars 2081 has left ALPHA phase and is now officially in BETA. This is an exciting time! We've currently packed in 31 missions, which is about 10-15 hours of straight game play, but could take you much longer considering the free-roaming / sandbox gameplay, in-game editor and multi-player!

Only first 6 missions are dubbed and tested by our team. Remaining missions are in the process.

I've been a little unclear on what this is all about, which has prevented me from buying into it. Does it take place primarily in tunnels in asteroids? They mention an open-world aspect, but does that mean you can travel about the solar system?

I like some of what I hear and have seen, but it does seem to keep coming back to a Descent-style tunnel shooter. I never cared much for Descent (first three), but if the tunnel fighting is one aspect of a more varied space sim experience, that's okay. Are there missions taking place in free space?
