'Killzone: Mercenary' (Vita) Accepting Closed Multiplayer Beta Sign-ups

Starting just after the ending of the original Killzone, and revisiting many of the events from the Killzone trilogy, the game puts players in the rugged combat boots of a mercenary named Arran Danner.

Danner is a former UCA soldier who takes work from anyone who's willing to pay.

When a routine mission goes sideways, Danner discovers the outcome of the war could depend on the fate of the Ambassador's son. Both sides are trying to get the boy, leaving Danner to wonder whether the price of victory is worth the paycheck.

The nine single-player missions each last about an hour. Completed missions unlock replay challenges with special objectives. There's a full-fledged multiplayer mode with six maps for up to eight players and three different game types, including Warzone mode.

Sign-ups for the Killzone: Mercenary closed beta start today! Enter here for a chance to be selected as one of the few participants in the exclusive multiplayer closed beta.

Candidates have until 2:00PM PDT on Wednesday, July 17th to sign up for the public’s first look at Mercenary’s impressive multiplayer package. If chosen to participate, you will receive an email with directions on how to get started.

Mercenary’s multiplayer suite will provide players with a diverse range of weapons, grenades, armor, and special VAN-Guard devices enabling the player to customize their multiplayer load-out slots. This customization supports the tactical element of the game; will you armor yourself up and go in like a tank, or take a more precise approach and assassinate enemies stealthily?
