Dead Space 2 Multiplayer Beta Creeps Out To Small GroupS

EA and Visceral Games are in the process of opening up Dead Space 2 multiplayer to a small group of "dedicated fans" of the series, inviting select PlayStation 3 owners into an advance beta.

We've heard from more than a few Kotaku readers who have been accepted into the Dead Space 2 multiplayer beta, which appears may already be underway or kicking off very soon. Dead Space 2 multiplayer pits Necromorphs against humans in team-based battles that smacks of Left 4 Dead meets Singularity meets Dead Space. It looks like this in action.

Check your e-mails for invites and let us know if you got in.

Dead Space 2 is currently slated for release on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC starting in January 2011.
