Killzone 3, Open Multiplayer Beta February 2nd
Seems like everything is just heating up, tons of great games and content coming out for the PS3 and it doesn’t seem like SONY is slowing down one bit. On Wednesday February 2nd the Killzone 3 Open Multiplayer Beta is going to hit the PSN. It will run from the 2nd to the 14th, which should give all North American PS3 users that little Killzone fix. It seems like it took forever for this game to come out, but if you look at it now, we only need to wait another 30. Besides the beta being available to all NA PS3 users it’s great that they are giving us a little extra from the Closed Beta. Players will have a chance to check out the game in full glory leading up to the release with support in using the PlayStation Move and stereoscopic 3D.
Hit the jump to find out about the 4 modes that you will have access to and the video:
Guerrilla Warfare (16 players)
Guerrilla Warfare is a standalone multiplayer mode similar to classic Team Deathmatch: You and your teammates must try to kill as many of the opposing team as you can before the timer runs out. In this mode, only the downstream monitor houses and repair bay are accessible, giving the map a very frantic pace.
Warzone (24 players)
If you’ve played Killzone 2, you may already be familiar with Warzone. It’s a round-based multiplayer campaign that consists of five randomly ordered mini-missions. In this mode, the power house and penstocks directly under the dam are accessible as well, so there’s more room to come up with different strategies and approaches to your goal.
Operations (16 players)
Operations is a new multiplayer campaign which aims to deliver a more cinematic, story-based gameplay experience, similar to that of Killzone 3′s single-player mode. It consists of a sequence of linear mini-missions, in which the ISA must try to secure the docks and destroy the dam, while the Helghast must try to protect the dam facility.
Botzone (one player and up to 15 bots)
Botzone is an offline multiplayer mode ideal for those looking to get to grips with the controls, the weapons or the map layout before going up against live players. Each of the aforementioned multiplayer modes can be played offline, against CPU-controlled opponents.
