Ubisoft has announced that a closed beta for Far Cry 3’s multiplayer will begin this Summer on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

It will run for two weeks, offering 16-player matches, six classes and multiple maps and modes. An official start date has yet to be announced. U.S. gamers who purchase Ghost Recon: Future Soldier from GameStop are guaranteed access. You can also register on Far Cry 3’s official Facebook page for a chance of winning one of 500 keys.

Ubisoft has promised that more methods of gaining keys will be revealed before the beta begins. Everybody loves a beta test as it gives fans a chance to try a game before launch. Most major multiplayer games have a beta test at some point to ensure that there’s no issues at launch, since one major bug could end any hopes of success.

Are you interested in taking part in the beta?
