SOCOM 4 multiplayer beta this month

The SOCOM 4 multiplayer beta will begin this month with a private group, slowly expanding until, by April 5, it's open to everyone.


SOCOM 4 developer Zipper Interactive has revealed the PlayStation 3-exclusive shooter's multiplayer beta schedule, a multi-step program that will see it rolled out gradually to ever-larger groups from March 15.

Initially, it'll be private for select "eligible players," who'll soon be contacted if they're one of the lucky ones. On March 22, PlayStation Plus subscribers get in. Come March 29, it'll open to everyone with a code from Killzone 3. Finally, on April 5, it'll become an open beta, freely available to everyone on the PlayStation Network.

The beta will contain two maps and the game's four multiplayer modes. It'll shut down on April 13, in advance of the game's April 19 launch.

      Let's hope Zipper doesn't do what they did with the last Socom. Which was just do a remake of the previous game. It was kind of a slap in the face for the hardcore Socom clans when Combined Assault was released because it was a remake of Socom 3 with a few new maps. So should we expect Zipper to pull up MAG, do a name change, add a few maps, and presto... Socom 4! We'll just have to wait and see.
