Apparently some of us may already be able to download the Beta. Click here to check if you are eligible.
Dammm, I just checked mine, and nothing, something about “sorry looser you will have to wait till September” Bastards!! Those who are invited will receive a code, much like the Metal Gear Online Beta, that will bring you to a download page for the Resistance 2 Private Beta.
Official word from James Stevenson on myresistance.net
As some of you might of heard, a lucky few recently received our version of a golden ticket: entry into the Resistance 2 private beta. So what’s the purpose of a private beta? Simply put, it helps the development team get some important gameplay feedback (i.e. find out what people like, dislike, and then tune what’s necessary) so we can make R2 the best shooter possible before its release. That’s our sole focus.
If you didn’t get an invite…well, buck up, buttercup—we’ve still got the R2 public beta that begins later this fall. And in the meantime, feel free to check out the beginnings of our new Resistance hub at http://beta.myresistance.net. While it’s very much a work-in-progress (not to mention lacking the social networking features that’ll be ready by R2’s launch), the site is a major step up in terms of looks and navigation.”
Aight TQfam, go check if you got your invite, and let me know, maybe I can come over and try out the beta while Juice hooks up the Michelas.
