Folks have been getting very excited about the chance to play Resistance 3′s multiplayer modes and now we have 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, they will be opening the beta sometime on Thursday, August 4th. PlayStation Plus subscribers in the U.S. will also be invited to join the beta beginning on August 23rd (damn that’s quite a while).
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 the game’s 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. Insomniac has 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.
If you aren’t Early Access or PlayStation Plus no need to fret, Insomniac will be announcing additional ways to get in as we get closer to Resistance 3′s launch date.
