Buy Killzone 3, Get in on SOCOM 4 Beta

If you weren’t already planning to pick up a copy of Killzone 3 on Feb. 22, you might want to rethink that position, because Sony is adding access to the SOCOM 4 multiplayer beta to the package.

That’s pretty good news, but here’s even better news: you don’t have to shell out for the uber-spiffy special edition of the game — everybody who buys the game gets into the beta. Try not to push to the front of GameStop line.

Details are available on the Official Playstation Blog:

To get early access to the beta, look for the SOCOM 4 callout on the front of all eligible copies of Killzone 3 (including both the standalone and Helghast Editions). Inside the box you’ll find a PSN code that you’ll be able to redeem for your early access as soon as the beta goes live. To find out when the SOCOM 4 multiplayer beta begins, be sure to check back at once you pick up your copy of Killzone 3, hitting shelves on February 22nd.

Here’s the kicker, though: “Pre-order your copy of Killzone 3 today at one of the following participating retailers to ensure you’ll get into the SOCOM 4 Beta, as well as tons of other great perks.” The hint suggests that just having the copy of the game won’t necessarily get you into the beta. It sounds like there are a limited number of spots in the beta.

‘Course, that could just be a clever technique to get you out and preordering Killzone 3.
