Sony's announced a public beta trial for Killzone 3 - and it's for PlayStation Plus subscribers ONLY.

The beta, which is due to hit paid-for PSN on October 25, will include the all-new 'Operations' game type, party system, and jetpack and exoskeleton vehicles.

Sony says the trial will give fans the chance to shape the final experience themselves, with the beta asking players to provide "honest gameplay feedback, report any bugs and cheats they find, and help test the network code in large-scale, real-world scenarios".

Access will only be granted to the first 10,000 PlayStation Plus subscribers in PAL and 5,000 PlayStation Plus subscribers in NA territories. To secure a place you'll need to do the following:

1. Become a PlayStation Plus subscriber: access is limited to PlayStation Plus subscribers, so if you're not enjoying the many benefits of PlayStation Plus membership yet, now is the time to sign up!

2. Download the exclusive Killzone 3 XMB Theme from PlayStation Plus section of the PlayStation Store on October 14

3. Check your email! If you're among the first 10,000 to download the Killzone 3 XMB Theme, you will receive an email on October 25th containing the Public Beta Trial promotion code and further instructions through the address you registered as your PSN Sign-In ID
WTF !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :pissed:

Yes, the Killzone 3 Public Beta Trial really is coming! Just like its predecessor, the multiplayer mode for Killzone 3 will be put through rigorous testing at the hands of the toughest, most demanding critics in existence: you, the fans. The Trial starts on the 25th of October and access is limited, so please read the following instructions carefully if you want to know how to secure a spot in the Public Beta:

Step 1: Be(come) a Plus subscriber
With the exception of a handful of key media partners, access to the Killzone 3 Public Beta Trial is exclusive to PlayStation Plus subscribers. If you’re not enjoying the many benefits of Plus membership yet, now’s the time to sign up!

Step 2: Download the theme
On October 13th an exclusive Killzone 3 XMB Theme will hit the Plus section of the PlayStation Store. Only the first 10,000 PlayStation Plus subscribers to download this theme will receive access to the Public Beta Trial.

Step 3: Check your email
If you’re among the first 10,000 to download the Killzone 3 XMB Theme, you will receive an email on October 25th containing the Public Beta Trial promotion code and further instructions. The email will be sent to the address you registered as your PSN Sign-In ID, so make sure you’ve set your notification preferences to accept emails from SCEE.

Those of you who make it into the Public Beta Trial are expected to provide honest gameplay feedback, report bugs and glitches, and help test our network code in real-world scenarios. In short, we’re counting on you to help us improve Killzone 3! In return you’ll get a good taste of the multiplayer mode, including its brand-new ‘Operations’ game type, party system, and jetpack and exoskeleton vehicles.
And if that doesn’t convince you to take a shot at the Public Beta Trial, maybe this new trailer will:

The only reaon I bought a trial memebership of 3 months was to test this but its also enabled me to test assins creed and get Abes odysee for free among other things, not bad but certainly not great.

Hate having to jump through hoops to get to test a beta just subscribing should be enough like it was for assins creed.

Will this be global or just for the EU?

I think it's abit harsh Sony only letting 10,000 plus members join, it should be available to all plus members. Mainly because this was a selling point of it, well it definitely was for me!

Look at it this way:

There is a KZ3 Beta
There'll probably be another LBP2 beta.
There'll probably be a SOCOM 4 beta
There'll probably be a Twisted Metal beta
There'll probably be a Resistance 3 beta
There'll probably be an Uncharted 3 beta
There'll probably be a Starhawk Beta
If inFAMOUS 2 has MP, there'll probably be an inFAMOUS 2 beta.

and then there are the 3rd party ones.

I might as well get it now and get a load of free PS1, PSN games as well as reduced games and DLC.

PAL????????????????? I guess this makes up for the release delays and less robust PSN compared to other territories.

Being a PSN+ member has got me is minis, themes, and avatars. Glad I got the 15 months for the price of 12 deal. Qore has been the best thing thus far.

I take it you didn't read the terms or FAQ:

Sony said:
Betas have limited invites and based on selection criteria not every PlayStation Plus member will get access to every beta; however, we’re working with game developers to make qualified PlayStation Plus members the first to gain access.
Many game betas are done to test certain parts of a game or certain functionality (like previous game add-on integration) so that when the final version of the game launches, it’s the best it can be. Oftentimes, betas are extremely limited as well. We need to ensure that members of Plus meet that individual beta’s requirement to be issued an exclusive invite.
