The Official PS forums imploded at the news of the release of the Resistance 2 Beta. Apparently invites went out to a very lucky few (check to see if you are lucky HERE), those who are invited will receive a code, much like the Metal Gear Online Beta, that brings you to a special download page for the Resistance 2 Private Beta.
Official word from James Stevenson on myresistance.net
As some of you might’ve 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.
