Resistance 3 Public Beta for PS3

Many of you have been getting very excited about the chance to play Resistance 3’s competitive multiplayer modes online when the Resistance 3 Public Beta launches. Today, we’re happy to give 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, we will be opening the beta to you at some point on Thursday, August 4th. Your existing codes will be able to be redeemed via the PlayStation Store and the Redeem Code button. PlayStation Plus subscribers in the U.S. will also be invited to join the beta beginning on August 23rd. If you’re a subscriber, all you’ll have to do is navigate to the PlayStation Plus section of the PlayStation Store to download the beta.

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 our 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. We have 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, but we hope you enjoy this taste of the experience while helping us test our online infrastructure.

The beta will continue beyond the Early Access period, and we’ll be announcing additional ways to get in as we get closer to Resistance 3’s launch date. Can’t wait for Early Access? Some of our media partners will be giving out codes next week that will let you join the beta a couple of days early. We’ll also be giving out some early codes on our Twitter and Facebook account, so follow or Like us!

That’s all for now! We look forward to playing against you in the Resistance 3 Multiplayer Beta next week.

What !?!?!? That’s too late for us!
How come ps+ users get the beta august 23???
Socom 4 users: 04-08, EU ps+ users: 10-08, and USA ps+ users: 23-08
Why not on august 10 like the EU’s users
I just bought 1 year membership for ps+ and I already think it was a bad investment
I bought it mainly to get “early access to the betas”
We lose 19 days… that’s too much time for a beta
I feel very disappointed with SCEA and Insomniac

Here’s a note I hope that the developers take note of. I hope that the 2 maps and 2 game modes will be more than enough to keep us satisfied long after the game launches. For example, I played the Killzone 3 beta a lot, almost everyday. I loved it and couldn’t get enough of it. By the time the game launched, I played hardcore for a week or two and then found myself not wanting to play it for a bit. Even though there were other levels to play on after the game launched, I didn’t want to have to play that one level again. Now they had only one level to play on during the beta and I know this will have two levels. But I guess my point is, I hope they brought back the feature of R2 where it would be the same map, but it would have different areas and different run through in the co-op. Because that would be the one thing that didn’t force the developers to give us more levels during the beta, but also kept the game fresh long after it’s launch.

I’ve found two games to play in so far. But I keep getting a network error after about 4 or 5 minutes of game play. Other than that I’m like you, just searching for games. Give it time though, it’s the first day of the beta. People need to still download it and update. Some people have slow connections, also take into consideration that not all people have been waiting for this to come out for a long time and downloaded it as soon as they could, like us. ha

You are getting in the beta, so you are getting what you paid for. If you wanted earlier access, you should have paid what all of us had to as well. You should have bought socom 4 when you had the chance. I have been a PS Plus subscriber ever since it launched and my subscription doesn’t end until march of 2013. I renewed my one year because PS Plus is worth it and consistently gets better as it goes along. I have a 320gb hard drive and so I have every single free game that they have offered since the launch of PS Plus, well over 30 games that I would have bought otherwise and 30 or 40 so that I maybe would have.

I can respect that they’re trying something different, but the whole 60 player thing was kind of a draw for me.
