After many, many months of hard work, Sony Computer Entertainment has announced that the Starhawk Private Beta will be live on PSN beginning Tuesday, November 22nd! According to Sony, the Private beta invites will be rolled out over a number of weeks leading up to Christmas and the New year, so if you miss the first round it is likely you will still get in before the year is out.
Making a game is hard work, but it’s also a lot of fun! According to a post on the PlayStation Blog, the initial beta will be very limited, with access only open to “a selected number of loyal Warhawk players.” As time progresses, senior producer Harvard Bonin noted on the blog, more users will be “slow rolled” into the beta.
The early beta phase will offer Capture the Flag on a couple of maps. Further content will be released over time. More participants are planned for the beta as well, according to the post. “If you have a Starhawk Public Beta voucher from Uncharted 3, you are guaranteed access in early 2012.
Starhawk is set to arrive on the PlayStation 3 next summer. This beta will offer more features, game modes, guns, weapons and more.
