At San Diego Comic-Con this week, Insomniac Games has confirmed that the multiplayer beta for Resistance 3 will kick off during the first week of August. Yup, that's only two weeks away. The beta will feature two modes -- Team Deathmatch and Chain Reaction -- but how many and what maps will be included is unknown.
There are a few ways to get into the beta, including using a voucher code found in new copies of SOCOM 4 if you're in North America. European PlayStation Plus members will also get access. No word yet on any other means of getting in, but we'll keep you posted.
Resistance 3 is out September 6. I recently played the opening hours of the single-player campaign, and came away impressed -- it's now among my "must play" games for the remainder of 2011.
