Warhawk was awesome, so we have super high expectations for Starhawk .

For all those interested, the private beta kicks off on November 22. According to an update at the PlayStation Blog , select loyal Warhawk fans should start seeing invitations in their inboxes. It's a "slow roll," though, so don't freak out if you don't see an invite immediately. Just be patient.

And here's a great behind-the-scenes look at how Lightbox Interactive is approaching this spiritual successor:

By the way, you can increase your chances of getting into the private beta by registering on the official site , and Sony will be working with various major sources (G4, IGN, GameSpot, 1Up, USA Today, Maxim, etc.) to give you even more opportunities to land a spot in the test.

If you don't get in, don't despair. You bought Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception , didn't you? Well, there's a Starhawk public beta code in there; you just have to wait until early next year to jump into the testing action.
