Starhawk Beta Now Open to Everyone

THE BUZZ: Sony has announced the Starhawk beta is now available to all PlayStation 3 users.

The beta began back in January for a select few, then PlayStation Plus members were allowed in, and now it’s a free for all. ”In the coming weeks we’ll be upgrading the Beta a ton. You can expect a new map, new vehicles, new weapons, 32-player max matches and more,” Sony said on the PlayStation Blog. ”Remember, this is still a beta, not a demo. We are actively finding and fixing problems – and we need your feedback.”

EGM’s TAKE: This is quite a long beta for a console game. Obviously Sony wants to make sure that the launch of Starhawk goes completely without a hitch, and has a fully working online component from day one, which is quite a sound strategy. Also it allows them to advertise the game more by offering a free sample in order to convince players to purchase the retail version. Sony obviously wants Starhawk to be a success and by what’s been shown so far it certainly has that potential.

Have you tried the beta? What did you think? Let us know in the comments below.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
