The Socom 4 Beta Will Be Available in Four Phases

Well, it looks like PS+ members win again. Man, I can’t catch a break. Here’s the intel:

The SOCOM 4 Multiplayer Beta will roll out in four separate phases. It’ll begin with a small, private group and then expand weekly from there until it’s freely available to everyone! Here’s the schedule for each of the beta’s rollout phases:

* On March 15th, a private beta goes live. We’ll 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.

The beta is scheduled to run until April 13th, at which point the servers will be taken down in preparation of SOCOM 4′s retail release on April 19th!

    Is it really possible to do something from the 13th until the release on the 19th?

    One would think games had to be pressed and distributed in less then a week, and that isn’t even considering the possible time to make adjustments.

    Perhaps they only work with closed beta and ps+ members feedback.

    They’re probably stress-testing servers more than working on the mechanics of the game. Still, they could get feedback for an early patch, but you’re right that the disc certainly wouldn’t be changed in the seven days before release.
