Official details on SOCOM: Confrontation‘s Public Beta test and retail pricing have now been announced. First, the beta. It’s set to run an entire month, September 1st through the 30th. If you’d like to participate, there are two ways to gain access. First option: purchase the first episode of Qore — which you can get for free in the back of the latest issue of PlayStation: The Official Magazine, as I told you yesterday — and you’ll get into the beta starting September 8th. Second option: pre-order the game through GameStop for day-one beta access and the option to share your beta code to invite up to two other players.

As for SOCOM: Confrontation‘s pricing, it’ll be available exactly like Warhawk was. Two versions will be available at brick-and-mortar retailers, one a $60 bundle with Sony’s new Bluetooth headset and exclusive behind-the-scenes video content and the other a standalone copy of just the game for only $40. The $40 standalone version will also be made available online via the PlayStation Network store. All three versions are due for release on October 14th.
