Those of you not lucky enough to infiltrate Killzone: Mercenary’s private multiplayer beta earlier in the year will unlock access to the online stress test next week. Guerrilla Cambridge will be recruiting PlayStation Plus members from 20th August in North America and 21st August in Europe, followed by everyone else from 27th August and 28th August respectively. If you managed to nab a PlayStation Home code, you’ll be able to line up alongside premium members on the earlier date.

The beta’s set to close in all territories on 3rd September, so you’ve only got a few weeks to sharpen up your skills ahead of the first-person shooter’s full release. Are you already enjoying the game, or waiting patiently for the open beta to launch? Let us know in the comments section below – and remember to keep your eyes peeled for plenty more on the portable blockbuster over the coming weeks.
