If you consider yourself to be a fan of the Killzone franchise, you won’t need us to tell you that a multiplayer beta has just been announced for Killzone 3 this month. However, the bad news is that it’s only available to Playstation Plus subscribers.
You can’t say that this wasn’t coming. Sony know that Killzone 3 is going to one of their highlights of 2011, so what better way to boost their PS Plus subscriber numbers up by announcing a beta for select PS3 owners only.
We don’t know if there will be an open beta, but since the game is due out February 11th next year, it doesn’t leave a lot of time for Guerilla to fix up any problems in the closed beta, then get an open beta sorted out for everyone else in that time period.
It looks to us like this is exclusive to PS Plus subscribers. Will you now bite the bullet and pay for a subscription? Just to refresh, 3 months cost $17.99, while a year’s access will cost you $49.99.
For PS3 owners who dont have a Plus subscription, this is obviously disappointing news. Let us know what you intend to do.
