If you’re a PS3 owner disgruntled by our last post’s news that the Crysis 2 multiplayer demo is coming only to Xbox 360 on January 25th, Warp Zoned has just completely turned your mood around. About a week later from February 2nd-14th, the Killzone 3 open beta will be available to everyone, not just premium subscribers. Of course, if you’re a shooter fan with both consoles then you’ll pretty much be in heaven for the next few weeks.
The open beta will feature the Frozen Dam map with all three game modes: Guerilla Warfare (another slick rebranding of classic Team Deathmatch), the return of Warzone, and Operations, Killzone 3’s new cinematic multiplayer mode where teams compete to accomplish a linear series of mini-objectives, interspersed with super-ill cutscenes. PlayStation Move support and Stereoscopic 3D are both included in the beta, although I’m not sure how you can beta test a game that’s already gone gold. In any case, expect to catch some of the Warp Zoned crew on PSN for the Killzone 3 open multiplayer beta from February 2nd-14th and after the game ships on February 22nd.
