Resistance 3 beta in August, browser tie-in now live

At a San Diego Comic Con panel, Sony announced the beta for Resistance 3 will release in early August, and a browser-based companion strategy game has already gone live in beta.

We finally have a release target for the Resistance 3 beta test. IGN reports that the company announced that the beta would begin the first week of August, just a month before the game hits on September 6.

The report also states that the beta will include the modes Team Deathmatch and Chain Reaction, but no mention of the included maps. Sony previously promised early access to the beta with a code in some copies of SOCOM 4, so they'll have a head-start.

Meanwhile, GameSpot reports that a new browser-based companion game called Global Resistance has launched. You'll be picking your side in the human vs Chimera war, and then taking part in a persistent online battle that sees you placing buildings and getting into skirmishes.

You can link the game to your Facebook account to use social features, and your PlayStation Network account to unlock features in Resistance 3, like multiplayer skins and XP boosts. The game itself, though, takes place on its own dedicated site. The web game is in beta now, so you can try it out for yourself.

      Of course Steve would find a way to doublepost even with the recent fixes :P

        Technically, I'm not the one that sets stories live anymore. We've got editors to do our dirty work, so blame them! I claim no responsibility for this particular double-post. I've made my share and then some already.

        But seriously, thanks for commenting. I'll get someone who has the power to kill the duplicate to do it.
