Meodia just got a little surprise in our email today. Killzone 3 Private Beta invites are out. Thanks to SCEE. Time to kill some Helghast Scums.
They spent their sweet time photoshopping this fake picture. I bet they even went through the trouble to somehow mod the PS3 to show them playing "Killzone 3 Beta" or something when they're really playing Killzone 2. This article is full of lies!

Woo, got my email today regarding the beta, seeing as I'm in Europe. It's actually really good so far.
Better or worse than KZ2? Do you think the controls or graphics have been improved upon? How do you like the new implemented multiplayer style and maps? Is it all that and more? Gosh there are just so many questions I have for the testers.
Someone hurry up and get some footage online!
It's much better than KZ2, the sounds and graphics are truly amazing.
What was even the point of this article???
too get hits, because that is all that matters RIGHT!
comments so they look like ****** =)
to make you jealous LoL : ( well it's working on me
So far the invites have been sent out to former KZ2 testers, mostly European, if I recall correctly. If you didn't get in, keep checking. And try the theme approach next week.
and your aren't meant to publicise the fact using your website.
Lol what facts? That there is beta. There is no NDA agrement about the announcement of Beta. The email pic has no NDA agreement. All the agreement are about the game. But please carry on with your crap.
This had NDA... lol Get your facts right
The email does not come with NDA. Do you understand that basic concept. Once you accept the beta, then you have to agree with NDA. Wow...But go aheaad, keep making stuff up.
Should play it very soon. Nice surprise but I was also an KZ2 beta tester in europe.
are you a plus member? why the hell are SCEE randomly sending invites while they said the way to get in is downloading the plus theme! i'm an US plus member and got nothing in my mail, damn you SCEA! :(
Well, this is supposed to be a closed beta I think. The one for the plus members is the open beta
because this is probably the closed beta for old beta testers like myself who registered a few years ago.
no plus members till tomorrow
It starts the 25th
Just got my beta key, thanks Sony! :D
I have only played 2 matches but i thought i could give my first impressions. It looks amazing, the motion blur is gone, the AA must be MLAA because there are no jaggies at all. And i think they push more polygons because it looks overal better than kz2. The controles are faster and more responsive but still gives the player a feeling of weight. The brutal melee works great, it´s awesome to run towards some poor sucker and put the blade in his throat or eyesocket, especially if it´s someone you know. The sound is better, it now reminds me of BFBC 2. The new sidearms are really cool, i mean just the name shotgun pistol :-) There are alot more, but dont have time to write. EDIT: I think the people who got the beta yeasterday is a part of the closed beta, i think it is those who were in the kz2 beta (atleast i was). And the open beta is for plus members.
I'm glad there's still some weight. Was afraid they would forgo the weight for awhile. And also glad the melee works good. Something about it never quite rubbed me the right way.
Hey bazookajoe_83, If you have the time, could you also mention something about the size of the maps. I have the impression that they are larger than those of KZ2. Thanks for the first impressions, by the way. It looks very promissing.
The maps are bigger than in kz2, but since the controle are more responsive and faster it feels as you also move faster. Which make the maps feel well sized. The snow maps are pretty cool. I followed some footsteps in the snow that suddenly ended, then i tought what the f. But then i saw the blur that the snipers camouflage gives, just took the last steps and slit his throat from behind :-)
Thanks for sharing your experiences about the size of the maps; I assumed as much. Cool that you actually can follow someone's footsteps. To be honest I have so much questions about the MP, but I won't bother you with them. I only hope that you will post some more thoughts about the game after the beta.
KZ3 beta is not "out". Right now it looks like some of the devs and such from neogaf got their hands on a few codes. I'm a KZ VIP and I have yet to receive my code. These codes are all the spill off from the PAX giveaway and closed beta invitees.
This is for the people who get a invite 'YOU lucky lucky bast*rds' LoL ps No rocket spamming please in KZ3
i wanted this one so much.. i got invites to all the betas before but not for killzone 2. so i guess it will be the same now t_t anyoway, i will try to download the theme to get it, because im a plus subcriber :p
I really hope Im getting in the beta. Either now or getting the chance to downlaod the theme. I NEED to get in the beta. I have played the singelplayer/story in Killzone 2 4 times and i loved it and i have played the multiplayer in Killzone 2 in more than 100+ hours.
Is it to late to get a invite to the Beta???
