Far Cry 3's multiplayer modes get a beta dry run on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this Summer, publisher Ubisoft has announced.

It will run for two weeks, offering 16-player matches, six classes, and multiple maps and modes. Sorry PC gamers, it appears you're sitting this one out.

Full details of how you can grab an invitation have not yet been announced, however, US gamers can guarantee their inclusion by picking up Ghost Recon: Future Soldier from GameStop on 22nd May.

You can also register on the game's Facebook page for a chance to pick up one of 500 keys, with other hand-out initiatives to be announced in due course.
