In an announcement today, Sony revealed that those who buy specially marked packages of the upcoming game Killzone 3, will be treated to early access for the upcoming SOCOM 4 multiplayer beta. Specially marked packages of Killzone 3 will have a notice on the box regarding SOCOM 4. When you open up the game, you should find a PSN code that will allow you to participate in the beta, once it goes live of course. While Killzone 3 arrives on February 22nd, there is no word yet on when the SOCOM 4 beta will begin.
Zipper Interactive’s Chris Roper said the following:
To get early access to the beta, look for the SOCOM 4 callout on the front of all eligible copies of Killzone 3 (including both the standalone and Helghast Editions). Inside the box you’ll find a PSN code that you’ll be able to redeem for your early access as soon as the beta goes live. To find out when the SOCOM 4 multiplayer beta begins, be sure to check back at SOCOM.com once you pick up your copy of Killzone 3, hitting shelves on February 22nd.
We’ll have more information on the SOCOM 4 multiplayer beta itself in the near future. For now, take a look at the callout for the beta on the awesome Killzone 3 box art!
So there you have it. Be sure to pick up Killzone 3 on the 22nd of February for your chance to gain early access to the SOCOM 4 beta.
