Sony recently gave vague details on the Resistance 3 beta, but now Insomniac has announced a hefty new set of details. The first wave (for SOCOM 4 purchasers) will start on August 4. Hope you kept that code handy.

Plus subscribers in the US get in on the act next, starting on August 23.

The announcement doesn't mention a public date for the beta, but promises that they'll announce more ways to get into it as we approach the September launch of the game. One such way will be codes given away on Twitter and Facebook by following the Insomniac accounts.

The beta version includes two maps: the Seaside of Glamorgan, Wales, and a trainyard in Bogota, Colombia. The public beta will include two of the five multiplayer modes, team deathmatch and chain reaction. You can get your character up to level 20 in the beta, to unlock weapons, abilities, loadouts, and skins.

Resistance 3 will be available on September 6th.

          They burned a lot of their fans with Resistance 2; thus, A tepid response to Resistance 3.

            I think I played it for like 20 minutes. I'd never played resistance 1 but my brother kept saying how awesome it was. I don't feel the need to give the series any further attention.

            Resistance 2 was much better than the first one in my opinion. The only thing it lacked is the weapon wheel from the first and it had less guns. Everything else was much better.

              Also the coop campaign was amazing fun. It's sad that they don't include something like it in the third and that they never did DLC for it.
