Just a reminder to fans out there that we are in an open beta, so it’s possible you may experience some issues connecting to a game. Please be patient and know that we are doing everything we can to make this a smooth and fun experience for everyone.

Killzone 3 multiplayer open beta

Starting at 10AM Pacific Time today, the Killzone 3 Multiplayer Open Beta is live! Japan and Europe are already hard at frag and now it’s time for North America and Mexico to join the party! You’ll find the Killzone 3 Beta on the main page of the PlayStation Store; it’s also listed under the 3D and PlayStation Move categories for added convenience.

The Open Beta includes one map, Frozen Dam. All game modes can be played on this map:

  • Warzone: The traditional Killzone game mode with game types changing on-the-fly
  • Guerrilla Warfare: Our take on Team Deathmatch
  • Operations: Our new story driven multiplayer game mode
  • Botzone: An offline version of Warzone which can be played against AI opponents

The Killzone 3 Open Beta is playable in 3D and supports the PlayStation Move motion controller. The Beta trial runs until February 15th, so get on board while you can! If you have any feedback, Killzone.com has a section of the forum specifically set up for this purpose. You can of course track all your stats on Killzone.com as well.

Lastly, don’t forget that from Friday, February 4th through Sunday, February 6th we will be giving away 20 Limited Helghast Editions each day. Team members will log on to the Open Beta each of the three days to randomly select players in matches. We will not select players more than once during the sweepstakes and will notify the winners via the email address associated with their PSN account. Check here for official sweepstakes rules.

See you online!

Open beta for a game that has already gone gold and has several reviews online already. Just be honest and call this a demo like we all know it is. Its not that hard, really.

Sometimes I wish I didn’t have a subpar internet connection speed. Now while trying to download this beta would be one of those times. This is barely above 56k dial-up :(

At least I hope I log on this weekend while the GG team is on playing so I could possibly be one of those winners of the LE Helghast Edition. Man I want it so bad.

Fluff, either way, I’m excited to play and will get the game day 1. There’s a reason I’m a huuuuuuuuge (and when I say huge, I mean huge) SCE supporter. Freakin’ amazing games! Good job guys looking forward to the full experience. I’m getting the sharpshooter for sure for my move as well. Got to try that out ^^

Put the Jeep/Buggy that we see in KZ2’s SP and what the reviews say is in KZ3’s SP online! Give it a nice wide open map etc… and of course let our teammates jump on with us. It would make for perfect DLC ^_^

Victoryismine52 said:

February 3rd, 10:56 am

Awesome! I can’t wait to try this with move! but I’m at work now… *sadface*

Quick question
If you play with move does the matchmaking pair you with other move players or is everyone thrown together?

If I gto into PS+ Killzone 3 beta before, can I get in this one using the beta I’ve already downloaded or I have to download this new one to get in this new beta?

It’s a bit of a demo and a bit of beta. The beta part of it is to stress test the servers and fine tune them. C’mon people, stop whining!

TheGuardianFID said:

February 3rd, 11:10 am

mastorofpuppetz said:

February 3rd, 11:29 am

game wont sell well compared to other Shooter exclusives (Halo, gears cough) or make an impact because sony wont advertise it…………………………………..

February 3rd, 11:31 am

It can still be considered a BETA because it is a TEST of the Multiplayer usage on the servers so those considering this a demo should think about that for a moment. Think of it as a final test so that when the actual game is released most of the issues can be addressed. I appreciate it!

Thanks Sony and Guerilla Games. You guys are SPECTACULAR!!!!

Regarding the sweepstakes, how is an “entry” defined? I know it’s one account, one e-mail, but is one log-on an entry? Maybe a game session? I’m confused.

Is the Beta on Playstation store?

Jisatsu_Kiddo said:

February 3rd, 11:35 am

the name filter is still broken after closed beta.

MoneyMaker110 said:

February 3rd, 11:35 am

it’s likely called a beta to test servers you dolts.

Victoryismine52 said:

February 3rd, 11:36 am

Hey thanks for the response TJ Hopefully I’ll see you in the beta this weekend!!! I can’t wait to get home and download it!

ProPawn64 said:

February 3rd, 11:38 am

where can you download the beta from ??? PS+???

NoGodsOnlyMan said:

February 3rd, 11:38 am

Is this beta a representation of the final built?

Exalted_Knight said:

February 3rd, 11:40 am

Check my avatar….. Sadly I am at work right now so I cannot enjoy the greatness with others as they tackle Killzone 3 Open Beta. I guess I’ll put in Killzone in the PS2 where I am at to get some Helgast Action until i get off in 6 hours! Thanks GG, i have a few suggestions to put onto the forums, here is my idea

https://share.blog.us.playstation.com/ideas/2010/06/24/killzone-command-center-app-for-ps3/ It involves Killzone Command Center incorporated into (KZ2) now KZ3. So if you could give it some food for thought. Again Thanks.

ynp7 said:

MoneyMaker110: Then it’s a multiplayer “stress test.” Either way it ain’t a beta. I’m sure all of the developers know this, but PR guys clearly don’t and have gotten it into their heads that calling something a “beta” is a way to get people hyped up to play it. They’re probably right, but that doesn’t make the label any more appropriate.

angelspawn77 said:

February 3rd, 11:44 am

Awesome! Can’t wait to try it out, I hope this thing downloads in time before I go to school which will be in about an hour and a half. My internet is actually going pretty fast for once, usually it’s pretty slow on my ps3, but its pretty fast for my PC.

Mooshywooshy said:

February 3rd, 11:45 am

Awesome! I’d love to give it a try, but my PS3 is currently inoperable due to the PS3 firmware team consisting of mentally handicapped high school dropouts all of whom seem to deem it unnecessary to test anything.

But when/if they finish extorting money out of loyal customers having them send in their systems due to a Sony issue, and I can finally finish my HDD change then I’ll be all over this.

Wait… What!? North America AND Mexico?? Mexico IS part of North America o_O

Mza49311 said:

February 3rd, 11:54 am

played for a sec with botzone then my youngest woke up from her nap, boo, I tried move support, man do i suck with it, not so much the shooting, the move off screen turning thing gets me, have to barely move the controller and still i fly around in circles disorienting myself, may get it down in a year or so lmao
