Gamers will be able to gain early access to Resistance 3's public beta starting next Thursday, developer Insomniac Games has confirmed.

Folk who obtained access via their purchase of SOCOM 4 in North America will get a chance to stick it to the Chimera hordes on August 4, while U.S. PlayStation Plus subscribers will be invited to join the beta beginning on August 23.

European PlayStation Plus members, meanwhile, will gain access on August 10.

The beta itself features maps such as Seaside of Glamorgan, Trainyard in Bogota and Colombia, in addition to game modes Team Deathmatch and Chain Reaction. Furthermore, gamers can also level up their characters, as well as purchase weapon upgrades, customize loadouts and unlock fresh character skins.

It’s worth noting, however, that the beta’s level cap is 20, so you won’t be able to access “the full range of abilities, modes, maps and weapons until the game launches in September.”

The beta will run beyond the early access period, and Insomniac says it will offer additional ways to access the teaser which will be announced as the game’s launch approaches.

Stay tuned.
