Not everyone got a chance to test out Killzone 3 last year. So if you missed out, now's the time to catch up.
The KZ3 Multiplayer Open Beta is a mere 24 hours away and Guerrilla says the "beta is looking better than ever." Find full details over at the PlayStation Blog ; most importantly, you should note the small delay. The beta was originally supposed to start on February 2 but it will now begin on February 3 – today – at 10:00 a.m. PST. But here's the really cool part- they're giving away no less than 60 Killzone 3 Limited Helghast Editions , which will not be sold in stores. It boasts everything that comes in the Helghast Edition that you can find at retailers, but with the special bonus of a Helghast Helmet replica with illuminated LED eyes. How many did they make of these bad boys? Oh, 1000. Yeah, that's not many. If you want a shot at one, log on and get involved in the open beta this weekend.
Starting Friday, they will "randomly select 20 participants each day who are playing in the Open Beta," and then notify those lucky winners via e-mail. If you're a winner, you'll see that notice between February 10 and February 18. …as if you needed any further incentive to play one of the most impressive betas to date. The closed beta last year was extremely solid and if it's indeed "better than ever," you're in for a very big treat.
