SOCOM 4 multiplayer beta included with Killzone 3

Guerrilla Games’ Killzone 3 is shaping up to be one of 2011’s best shooters, but now the deal is even sweeter.

Sony has announced that specially marked copies of Killzone 3 will bundle access to the SOCOM 4 multiplayer beta, which is said to kick off later this year.

Killzone 3 hits the PS3 exclusively on February 22. Gamers who pick up either the standard or the top tier Helghast Edition will earn access to the multiplayer beta for SOCOM 4.

Sony reminds gamers to keep their eye on for all the latest on SOCOM4 and for information concerning the launch date for the game’s multiplayer beta.
