This morning on the PlayStation blog, Mark Green, the senior producer at Guerrilla Cambridge, announced that sign-ups for the closed beta for Killzone Mercenary opened today. The company says they are only choosing a few select participants to participate in this exclusive multiplayer closed beta.
The post said that candidates have until 2pm PDT on Wednesday, July 17 to complete the sign-up for the public's first look at Mercenaries. If chosen, participants will receive an email with directions on how to get started. You can head over to Source #2 for the sign-up page.
Mercenary's multiplayer suite will provide players with a diverse range of weapons, grenades, armor, and special VAN-Guard devices enabling the player to customize their multiplayer load-out slots. This customization supports the tactical element of the game; will you armor yourself up and go in like a tank, or take a more precise approach and assassinate enemies stealthily?
No matter your tactical approach, Mercenary's multiplayer beta will give gamers an early look into the power and promise of PS Vita as the optimal handheld platform for first-person shooters.
