Killzone 3, Open Multiplayer Beta February 2nd | PS3Blog.net

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.

    Yeah it will be pretty cool to check out how the MOVE is on this thing.

  • Oly

    Now I need to go buy the machine gun.. lol wonder when thats released?

  • I’m torn because its only another month from open beta to release, and I don’t have unlimited bandwidth.

    On the other hand is a really pretty game with mechs. and Lost Planet 2 has taught me to love mechs that aren’t gundam related.

    Speaking of bandwidth AT&T needs to stop screwing with me and call me back so I can upgrade to a 12 or 18mb line!

    AT&T is the Satan. Had their Uverse service for a while, and I could spend all day explaining the ways that they repeatedly screwed me over. Never again, AT&T!

  • This is aewsome. Ends on my birthday to boot 🙂 I didnt get into the closed beta so Im really eager to see what they have done.

  • Mocker’s re-unite!

  • pedro

  • Flashray: Is it available for EU ?  

    According to what I read it’s for North America but I can’t be 100% sure.

  • Yes, this was one of the only beta’s i didnt get into so im pretty happy that there having an open beta

  • cant wait for this. A game night would be fun

  • xDeFcoN_2FasT4Ux

    well i guess i dont need to buy another game till killzone3 bc ill be able to play this for 2 weeks yes.

  • derrickgott007

    Doubt it’s a beta. Really more of a multiplayer demo now. Most of the kinks were worked out in the closed beta (which never ended, played the other night).

  • sounds fun i dont really like tht game but i want to try it out
