There was a special gift inside every new copy of Killzone 3, a beta code for Socom 4. However there were no details on when this beta will launch and when we could play it. Much like the Battlefield 3 beta invites in Medal of Honor.
Well now we have good news, the beta will be releasing this month in 4 stages.
On March 15th, a private beta goes live. Zipper will be contacting eligible players soon.
Beginning March 22nd, PlayStation Plus members will gain access to the beta.
On March 29th, anyone with a beta code included with Killzone 3 gains entry.
Starting April 5th, the beta will be freely downloadable to anyone via PlayStation Network.
Doesn't seem that the Killzone 3 "early" access is all that early after all. But who is complaining? we get to check out one of the hottest new beta's coming this year.
