Players will be invited via e-mail to participate in the beta, but Lightbox has reassured fans not to be too disappointed if they are not included in the initial wave of entrants — the beta will be rolled out gradually allowing more players to participate in the important online test.

In order to celebrate the private beta announcement, Lightbox has released a new behind-the-scenes trailer. Catch that after the jump. There's also a bunch of new screenshots and beta preparation details over on the PlayStation Blog.
