PS Plus members get SOCOM beta access

While US gamers need to buy Killzone 3.

PlayStation Plus members will get automatic access to the impending SOCOM 4 beta, Sony has announced.

The news came courtesy of the EU PlayStation Blog's Twitter feed, although no firm start date was revealed.

Things will work slightly differently in the US however. There, anyone picking up a specially-labeled copy of Killzone 3 when it launches next month can expect to find a code within granting them access to the beta.

Chris Roper from developer Zipper Interactive told the US PlayStation Blog, "To get early access to the beta, look for the SOCOM 4 callout on the front of all eligible copies of Killzone 3 (including both the standalone and Helghast Editions).

"Inside the box you'll find a PSN code that you'll be able to redeem for your early access as soon as the beta goes live."

PlayStation Move-compatible squad shooter SOCOM 4 is due for release later this year. Its predecessor, SOCOM 3: US Navy SEALs, launched on PlayStation 2 back in 2006 scoring 6/10 from Eurogamer's Matt Martin.
