Following an announcement overnight that the third episode of US PSN show Qore would contain an invite to the Resistance 2 beta, Insomniac’s moved to allay fears that the only way gamers are going to get in is by paying and confirmed that pre-ordering will allow access.
“Lots of confusion thanks to the Qore announcement,” said a spokesperson, posting on MyResistance.net.
“Here’s the deal. We are running a Public Beta, and you will have many ways to get in. The best way which will give you the earliest access to the beta will involve a pre-order program that should be announced soon, (for those of you who don’t know what pre-ordering is, you essentially reserve your copy with five dollars down, and that five dollars will go towards the price of the game when it releases).”
There’s also confirmation there that those outside America will be able to get in on some early anti-alien action.
“For all of you folks outside of North America are up in arms because Qore is NA only, please don’t worry. This is one of many ways to get in, and we plan to make the beta available in all territories, as we need to test all servers and worldwide play.”
