Sucker Punch's forthcoming title Infamous 2 has a beta set for April 12th. If you're jonesing to get in on the action and you reside in the U.S., all you have to do is head over to www.infamousthegame.com. Once there you can direct yourself to sign-up registration.

March 21st marks the end of the sign-up period. Winners will be chosen at random and emailed shortly there after. As a note for gamers outside the U.S., no worries, Sucker Punch has promised other territories their own betas as well.

The interesting thing about this beta, however, is that it will be centered around mission creation. And such a creative task will be quite rewarding. Sucker Punch will chose the best created content to spotlight front and center when Infamous 2 launches stateside on June 7th. Good luck, gamers!

Killzone 3 Review

Killzone 3

The madness begins in Guerilla Games' visually striking First Person Shooter.
