Everyone Can Try Killzone 3 Next Month

Next month is big for the shooter. Breach, Bulletstorm, the first Call of Duty: Black Ops map pack and, of course, Killzone 3 are all locked and loaded for February. Good thing there's a Killzone 3 "open beta" coming.

On February 2, North American PlayStation 3 owners can try out the multiplayer side of Killzone 3 to see if that's the shooter they should invest in. There's only one map included in the free demo—"Frozen Dam"—but there will be four ways to play it. The multiplayer beta wraps up on February 14, the week before Killzone 3 comes to retail. In-depth details are available at the PlayStation.blog.

Make your decision quickly, for more shoot 'em up content, like Crysis 2, Conduit 2, Homefront and F.E.A.R. 3 will be vying for your money one month later.
