Insomniac Games Announce Resistance 3 Public PS3 Beta Dates


142w ago - Today Senior Community Manager James Stevenson at Insomniac Games has announced the Resistance 3 public PS3 Beta dates, with early access beginning on August 4, 2011.

To quote: Many of you have been getting very excited about the chance to play Resistance 3′s competitive multiplayer modes online when the Resistance 3 Public Beta launches.

Today, we're happy to give some additional info about the launch dates for the beta.

For those of you who have received Early Access to the Public Beta via specially marked packages of SOCOM 4, we will be opening the beta to you at some point on Thursday, August 4th.

Your existing codes will be able to be redeemed via the PlayStation Store and the Redeem Code button. PlayStation Plus subscribers in the U.S. will also be invited to join the beta beginning on August 23rd. If you're a subscriber, all you'll have to do is navigate to the PlayStation Plus section of the PlayStation Store to download the beta.





The Resistance 3 Beta includes two of our major maps in the game, the Seaside of Glamorgan, Wales, as well as a Trainyard in Bogota, Colombia. The Public Beta includes two of our five multiplayer modes, Team Deathmatch and Chain Reaction (the other three are Deathmatch, Breach, and Capture the Flag).

You can level your character up, buy and upgrade weapons and abilities, customize your loadouts and unlock new character skins. We have capped the level in the beta at 20, so you won't be able to get the full range of abilities, modes, maps, and weapons until the game launches in September, but we hope you enjoy this taste of the experience while helping us test our online infrastructure.

The beta will continue beyond the Early Access period, and we'll be announcing additional ways to get in as we get closer to Resistance 3′s launch date. Can't wait for Early Access? Some of our media partners will be giving out codes next week that will let you join the beta a couple of days early.

We'll also be giving out some early codes on our Twitter and Facebook account, so follow or Like us!

That's all for now! We look forward to playing against you in the Resistance 3 Multiplayer Beta next week.
