Killzone: Mercenary Closed Multiplayer Beta: Sign-Ups Now Live

Mark Green's Avatar Posted by Senior Producer, Guerrilla Cambridge

Killzone: Mercenary on PS Vita

Sign-ups for the Killzone: Mercenary closed beta start today! Enter here for a chance to be selected as one of the few participants in the exclusive multiplayer closed beta.

Candidates have until 2:00PM PDT on Wednesday, July 17th to sign up for the public’s first look at Mercenary’s impressive multiplayer package. If chosen to participate, you will receive an email with directions on how to get started.

Mercenary’s multiplayer suite will provide players with a diverse range of weapons, grenades, armor, and special VAN-Guard devices enabling the player to customize their multiplayer load-out slots. This customization supports the tactical element of the game; will you armor yourself up and go in like a tank, or take a more precise approach and assassinate enemies stealthily?

No matter your tactical approach, Mercenary’s multiplayer beta will give gamers an early look into the power and promise of PS Vita as the optimal handheld platform for first-person shooters.

Salivating yet? Sign up now before all slots are filled.

I hope I get selected. If they look up game or trophy history from the PSN ID then they can clearly see im a VITA fanatic! Maybe that will sway the decision :)

Oh fantastic news…ha cant wait to see how this beast plays up on the vita…so this has nothing to do with my code from Home?….that will be a open Beta…am I right?…anyway signed…all I want is to play some Mercenary.This KZ has potential to be the best game on Vita.

What if we got a beta key for the Killzone Mercenary beta from the E3 Virtual Booth event?

xClayMeow said:

July 12th, 10:50 am

I do not have a PS3 so could not get a beta key from PS Home. I hope you verify that a person doesn’t already have a code before giving them one thru this…and also that a person actually owns a registered Vita. I’ll be pissed if I don’t get access and see keys being sold/traded.

I’m a Killzone Fan I really can’t wait for this

AdmiralCloud said:

July 12th, 10:57 am

Hope I get in but can someone explain I have a beta code so what’s this is it different from the one I heard about.

AdmiralCloud said:

July 12th, 11:12 am

So the closed beta suppose to be out before the open beta right?

Laguluna said:

July 12th, 11:20 am

In line!

Ezy-B- said:

July 12th, 11:27 am


I have an addiction to buying games. Im hoping to clear a large backlog that I havent even opened the box on before PS4 hits

Zionine said:

July 12th, 11:29 am

@Ezy-B.. Same here

It’s that post-childhood stage where you have money, but not enough time.. the opposite of when I was 12, so much time.. not enough money to buy games I want..
This KZ Beta will throw me way off schedule.. with SMT 4 coming out, still getting through so many Vita games.. Tales of Abyss, Tales of Xillia coming out with Dragons Crown….. Dx Then Ys and KH Remix and Pokemon…. ldsk;fjas;lkfjasdl;fkjsa;dl

Assuming we get in the beta how many gigs is the data file going to be? because i only have an 8 gig and im gonna have to dump PsaBr or zero escape for this if its more than 1 gig

Ezy-B- said:

July 12th, 11:36 am


If you’re picking up Dragons Crown for Vita, add me as a friend. I dont have enough Hardcore Vita players in my friends list so I never get to party up in MP.

Shedagilos said:

July 12th, 11:46 am

Looking fwd to this! For Vita to get the respect it deserves, it must have quality AAA games like Mercenary! Can’t wait!!

Darth-Krayt said:

I also need to ask about the beta codes given out in the E3 Home space. Since it hasn’t worked since mere seconds after I recieved it, I assume it’s just a code for whenever the beta actually goes live. That is the case, correct? I’m really hoping it wasn’t just one of those limited use codes and it had already been used up. I’m sure you wouldn’t do that but I just wanted clarification that those codes are for this beta mentioned here.

And +1 to those who want a proper Vita Motorstorm. Though Apocalypse lost that Motorstorm direction for me, so I didn’t like that the way I loved Motorstorm and Pacific Rift, so I’d much prefer a Vita port of Pacific Rift to something new that’s more akin to Apocalypse. Arctic Edge was a proper (imo) Motorstorm, but it’s handling feel was off compared to 1 & 2 on the console. I’d still like to have it on my Vita though. Sony should put it on the Vita store, it would be a nice addition to Plus too since there are no good Vita racers yet.

D-Dowg said:

July 12th, 12:27 pm

dh4645 said:

July 12th, 12:31 pm

what if i already have a code from the PS HOME E3 booth thing?
i’m assuming that will work.

guess it cant hurt to sign up.

Alex_Yagami said:

July 12th, 12:34 pm

I am the chosen one…hopefully hehe I’m pretty excited about this game. Can’t wait to try it on my Vita!

Zionine said:

July 12th, 12:36 pm


Sure thing! I’ll try to remember to add you the next time I’m on it. … Not that I’m at work or anything.. erhm..

ravenfaust said:

tolokarnal said:

July 12th, 12:52 pm

all I can say is “Thank sony”


July 12th, 12:56 pm

its wild how almost everyone in the comment section is a PS+ member.
my guess is if you have enough to drop on a vita then u have enough for +
now im curious to see how many of ya pre-ordered the PS4. psh all of ya lol

Zionine said:

July 12th, 1:06 pm

Well, MAC, I think it’s kinda the other way around.. I noticed my Vita library was going up because of PLUS and I thought Hey… a Vita purchase would be really good with all these games already. :D Right?

Well… too bad I got the Vita with the Anniversary sale… and spent even more money.. and bought Persona 4 Golden, too.. xD Mmmm… So many good times with my Vita already.

AdmiralCloud said:

July 12th, 1:07 pm

Only vita game that has a beta I love these people for the hard work they put into it I hope Sony learns from this and see what we want. Real games more multiplayer games. More betas so all hail killzone mercenary

AdmiralCloud said:

July 12th, 1:14 pm

Sony needs to know that the PS vita is not a PSP it’s so much more They need to know that it needs more i hope killzone mercenary shows other developers that they should invest into the vita.

tusunami said:

July 12th, 1:16 pm

If your a PS Plus member will you also get the beta as well?

Kchow23 said:

July 12th, 1:30 pm

I got a beta code from PS Home, so I assume this one would let me play earlier. Can’t wait to finally play a FPS on my Vita.

Lemondish said:

July 12th, 2:37 pm

What about the beta codes we got from the E3 booth in Home? Will those give us access to this beta too?

darkzin906 said:

July 12th, 2:39 pm

Zionine said:

July 12th, 3:09 pm
