Killzone 3 will be put through rigorous testing on October 25th though it will be the fans themselves, doing the testing. And, if you are a Playstation Plus subscriber, you may be able to be a part of the fun. If ever there was a reason to join PlayStation Plus, this is it.
These are the steps that you need to follow in order to secure a place in the testing trials. On October 19th you need to be one of the first 10,000 subscribers (5,000 U.S. Plus subscribers and 5,000 European Plus subscribers) to download an exclusive Killzone 3 theme. After you have done that, then your spot is secured and all you need to do is wait for October 25th. On that date you will receive an email with further instructions but you must have your preferences set to receive email from SCE, or you will miss you opportunity.
Those of you who join in on the fun are expected to provide feedback and to report bugs, glitches and to help test the network code in real-world scenarios. It is your job to help improve Killzone 3. And, in return you will get a taste of multiplayer mode. This will include the brand-new Operations game type, party system, and jetpack and exoskeleton vehicles.
