Buy Killzone 3, Get Early Access to the SOCOM 4 Multiplayer Beta

David Bull's Avatar + Posted by David Bull on Jan 19, 2011 // Associate Product Manager, SCEA

With only a month to go until Killzone 3 hits store shelves, we have another ace up our sleeves for our loyal PlayStation fans. Picking up a specially marked copy of Killzone 3 will grant you access to the SOCOM 4 Multiplayer Beta. If you want to experience SOCOM 4’s 32-player multiplayer battles first, buying Killzone 3 is the easiest way to get access.

Killzone 3 with SOCOM 4 Multiplayer Beta

Killzone 3 Helghast Edition

Zipper Interactive’s Chris Roper has the details for you below:

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 SOCOM.com once you pick up your copy of Killzone 3, hitting shelves on February 22nd.

We’ll have more information on the SOCOM 4 multiplayer beta itself in the near future. For now, take a look at the callout for the beta on the awesome Killzone 3 box art!

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.

yes … fix the box art for those who plan on staring at the box rather playing the game . apparently OCD is more rampant , most people acknowledge box for maybe the first 10 min of ownership ….MAX . after that it’s “what box art ?” . but … fix it . if only to spare the rest of us from their nit picky , childish rant’s .

ps … is there anyway you could spice up the upc barcode on the box ??? i feel the standard black bars only COMPLETLY RUIN my expieience …. perhaps multi- colored bars ??? LOL if logo’s and boxart made the list of complaint’s you know everythings going smoothly .

I am definately not buying this now. **** you Zipper. Incompetent ********. You ****** SOCOM up pretty badly and are too ******* stupid to realize what made it good in the first place. Do us a favor and next time you feel like experimenting with gameplay, make a new IP like you did with MAG instead of putting a dagger through the heart of every SOCOM fan.

Are you serious!?!?!? SERIOUS!?!?!? I am the leader of a 40+ member Socom clan that has been together since Socom (1).

I pre-ordered Socom 4 TWO DAYS after it was announced. The people at Gamestop didn’t even know about it!

I have over 400 hours logged on Socom Confrontation.

ARE YOU SERIOUSLY TELLING ME THAT I HAVE TO BUY KILLZONE 3 TO PLAY THE SOCOM BETA!?!?!?

PRETTY SAD THAT SONY HAS TO USE SOCOM TO SELL COPIES OF A PATHETIC SHOOTER LIKE KILLZONE. I WON’T BUY IT, AND IF SONY DOESN’T MAKE SOME OTHER CONCESSIONS FOR THE SOCOM BETA… WELL.. WELL.. AFTER THAT SORRY EXCUSE FOR A SOCOM TITLE (SOCOM CONFRONTATION) YOU GUYS SHOULD BE BEGGING US TO PLAY THIS BETA!!!

Really ? I think the people in the plus users should have an 2 choices go out and buy the game for the code or download it on the play station plus part on the network. The plus users should get it before the game comes out ( kill zone ) . But the plus users should get the avenge before anyone else.

@110

They are not saying you HAVE to buy Killzone3 to play the Socom Beta, they are saying you have a choice to do so. Plus the title is “EARLY access” so please, calm yo tits.

+ Deadly-Survivor on January 20th, 2011 at 4:33 am said:

I think the people who are in the playstation plus should get the beta also. I Really hate kill zone or kill zone 3 really [DELETED] game. If i have to ill buy it just to get the code and sell the game on eBay. But i think the plus users should get it too witch i am a plus user. because i hate to see my PlayStation plus money go to hell because no good betas or games to play. I love to play the beta and what not but i hate to buy kill-zone Wat a [DELETED] game it is. Thats why they did it to sell more copy’s witch people wont play but socom4. lol. but the play station plus members should have the biggest avenge over everyone else but we don’t . WASTE OF MONEY . that’s why we should get it a week before they do.

@110, learn some facts, Killzone franchise is much bigger and sells much more then socom. They are using Socom to try and get more people into Socom, but, don’t let your socom fanboy attitude get in the way. Also, no one said you HAD to buy KZ3 to get into the beta, take some pills now and ask mommy to tuck you in.

Hi, can you answer the following question?

Does the voucher expire?

Dear David Bull,

Obviously a “marketing specialist” with absolutely no taste whatsoever for what make an excellent game cover. The game will sell. Don’t worry. And if it doesn’t, it wasn’t the logos fault for not being large enough. Simply put, those logos don’t have to take up most of the front cover. Lose all those garishly enormous logos. Have you conducted some study that has proven ages 18-60 cant see a logo? It has to be enlarged 250-500% ? They’re far too big and horsey.

Leave the design work for the designers, not you typical marketing hacks that always request to make the logos larger. You assume we’re all blind and wont see them. As a result your video game covers look like the inside of a septic tanks. Prove you care and FIX THE COVER.

Sincerely,
All designers who are sick of marketing hacks input.

Everyone needs to relax about the beta. I’m sure Sony won’t pass up the opportunity to offer this with PS+ seeing it would be a great way to bring in some more subscribers. Killzone 3 releases in exactly 1 month, so of course they want to build some new hype with the game with the announcement of the beta.

Seriously some of the comments I read from you people are completely absurd.. get a damn life and stop being so damn upset over such a small thing.

Well i love socom and im am not to much of a fan of killzone but i would try and find out how to get into the beta w/o the purchase of kill zone 3. i am so amped for socom and everything it has to bring!

+ JINKY on February 11th, 2011 at 12:39 am said:

Wats the point in having these forums when nothing ever gets answered by the developers?

WILL PS+ SUBSCRIBERS GAIN ACCESS TO THE SOCOM 4 BETA OR NOT? AND IF IT’S A YES, WHEN WILL IT BE AVAILABLE?

Kill Zone is a load of CRAP and I would be extremely disappointed if the only way to get on the Beta was to buy this game.

ANY CHANCE OF AN ANSWER ZIPPER???

If youve preordered, can you redeem your Double XP voucher at any time after KZ3′s release? Im just worried that Im going to redeem my voucher right away and not be able to connect due to some highly anticipated login volume. Im thinking Ill wait for a bit and redeem the voucher at a later date.
