Starting next week, you’ll be able to start playing Killzone 3′s multiplayer component for free on the PlayStation Network, no copy of the game required. There’s no restriction on how much you can play, just a level cap.
Revealed via the PlayStation Blog podcast, a stand alone multiplayer-only download will be made available on the SEN (formerly PSN) free for any account holder to download and play, up until the level cap. Upon reaching the level cap, you’ll be required to pay $14.99 if you want to continue leveling up. By that point, many will be sure if the Killzone 3 experience is worth the money and even more of their time.
This is likely in an effort to increase awareness of Killzone 3′s multiplayer community and spark an interest in considering customers.
You’ll be able to give this “preview” a shot on Tuesday, February 28.
