When a company says "details will be available in the near future", the near future can be anything from weeks to months. Sony's just beaten the world land speed record for more details arriving, with the Killzone 3 beta details officially announced just days after being teased.
Launching on October 25th, the beta includes an all-new gametype, vehicles, jetpacks and the in-game party system allowing users to stick together. Only PlayStation Plus subscribers are eligible to enter, with the first 10,000 users within PAL territories to apply winning access.
Edit: Sony has clarified the situation regarding how many users can access the beta.
On October 19th, an exclusive Killzone 3 XMB Theme will appear in the Plus section of the PlayStation Store. The first 10,000 Plus subscribers to download this theme (5,000 SCEA Plus subscribers and 5,000 SCEE Plus subscribers) will receive access to the Public Beta Trial.
Full details on how to get involved are listed below. Good luck and give 'em Hell.
