It's Likely You'll Be Shooting Up Helghast Before The Year's Out.

While betas these days are used more for nifty promotional purposes, rather than genuine server stress tests — you can typically rest assured that there will be a window to try out an upcoming multiplayer shooter before release.

Killzone 3 looks unlikely to be any different. A website dug up via VG247 appears to be a community portal for beta testers. There's a log-in stopping access further into the page, but we assume there's feedback forms within.

Killzone 3's multiplayer is likely to get blown-out during gamescom this month, and there's every possibility a beta will be announced there. How fans will get access to the beta remains to be seen. Retailer exclusive? PlayStation Plus? Or perhaps just good old-fashioned goodwill. We'll see.
