UPDATE: SCEE has told GamerZines that the Starhawk beta will be handled via a “different mechanic” in Europe, and that it will have an announcement on the EU PlayStation Blog soon.
ORIGINAL STORY: An invitation to the public Starhawk beta will be included with all copies of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, SCEA has announced.
The voucher code, which will give players early access to Starhawk’s multiplayer beta when it hits PSN early next year, will be packed into every box of Uncharted 3 – including the collector’s edition.
“Just like Uncharted 3, Starhawk promises to provide an incredible multiplayer experience that only PS3 can deliver,” said Naughty Dog’s Community Strategist Eric Monacelli talking on the US PS Blog.
According to Monacelli, the Uncharted 3 disc will also contain four behind-the-scenes videos detailing the development and production of Drake’s latest adventure. If they’re anything like the behind the scenes clips we saw at last month’s Eurogamer Expo, they’ll definitely be worth a watch.
At the moment, the Starhawk beta key promotion has only been confirmed for North America. We’ve sent an email off to Sony Europe asking for confirmation on its availability elsewhere in the world and will update when we hear back.
Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception officially went gold last night. The game launches exclusively on PlayStation 3 on November 2nd.
