164w ago - Just over a week ago we announced news of Killzone 3 PS3 Beta invites going out, and today some fresh video footage of Mech Gameplay and more has surfaced!
To quote from GamersMint.com (linked above):
"We have more than 11 minutes of Killzone 3 BETA gameplay and we are at a loss of words on how to describe it... simply put, it's AWESOME!
The footage shows you wrecking havoc upon your enemies and is a sheer delight to watch.
Killzone 3 releases in Febuary 2011, exclusive to the PS3."
GamingBolt.com did comment on some bugs in the KZ3 PS3 Beta though, to quote:
"Since it's a BETA, some bugs have made their presence felt as well. Drop in framerates being a major one, stuff like unable to walk up stairs (0.25), enemies running through you while you try and melee them (1.00) and delay in killing enemies (final few seconds)."

To quote: "Several people have confirmed receiving an invitation to a private beta which begins tomorrow, you can find a excerpt from one of these emails a tester has posted online.
Dear Beta Tester,
The follow-up to one of the most critically acclaimed first-person shooters of 2009, Killzone 3, picks up where Killzone 2 left off delivering new weapons and enemies, larger set pieces and environments, more varied missions and a whole new level of intense cinematic action.
In the Beta you will get a taste of the multiplayer mode, including the all-new Operations game type, party system and jetpack and exoskeleton vehicles.
The aim of the Beta Trial is threefold:
• To collect your feedback
• Identify bugs, cheats and exploits
• Test our network and server code in preparation for the Public...
