Hotly anticipated shooter Killzone 3 ( developed by Guerrilla Games ) is due for its release on February 22. If you’re disappointed that you didn’t get a chance to take part in the closed beta, this is sure to cheer you up: an open beta will be held starting February 2!
The open beta will be available for free to all North American PS3 users and will run from Feb 2 till 14th. You can then get a feel of the revamped lag-free controls and get this: the demo can played in stereoscopic 3D with the use of PlayStation Move! The playable level in the “open beta” is Frozen Dam, and the multiplayer modes which you can try out are:
- Guerrilla Warfare ( 16 players )
- Warzone ( 24 players )
- Operations ( 16 players )
- BotzoneThe ( upto 15 bots )
The only thing I’m puzzled about is that since the game already went gold, I wonder how an “open beta” will help. Is it supposed to be a “demo”? Guerrilla Games is surely playing tricks on us… read this article by Destructoid which talks about the same thing.
