In an unannounced move, Sony has started sending out beta invites for Housemarque’s upcoming PSN shooter, Dead Nation
. The invites began popping up this week to registered users of the PlayStation Network. The beta is scheduled to run through September 3, 2010.
The beta program being run allows players to play through a single player version of the game while offering “special gameplay periods” on specific dates outlined in the invites. If you are a registered user of the PlayStation Network, keep an eye on your inbox to see if you got invited to participate (and don’t forget to check you spam folders). Personally, I am still waiting (and hoping) for mine but I know a few people who got their invites yesterday. In the meantime, you can view the latest trailer for the game below:
