Red Faction: Battlegrounds beta coming to PS Plus members

If you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you may (or may not) be invited to a beta for THQ’s Red Faction: Battlegrounds.

I its preview of next week’s PlayStation Plus updates, Sony has revealed that “a select number of PlayStation Plus subscribers will be returning to Mars for some vehicular combat in the Red Faction: Battlegrounds beta.” If you’re selected, you’ll be notified by email and a message on PSN. If you’re not, then you just get to bitch and moan about how you pay for the service, yet got shafted out of one of the benefits.

Battlegrounds is the digital download multiplayer “prequel” of sorts to THQ’s Red Faction: Armageddon, which hits shelves next March.
