Double XP for Killzone 2 this weekend; Guerrilla to “step back” from KZ2

Submitted by on Saturday, 25 July 200911 Comments

Killzone 2From Friday at 17:30 GMT until Monday morning at 09:00, soldiers taking to the battlefield of Helghan will enjoy double XP for their hard work mowing down Helghast/ISA scum.

Speaking over at the official US blog, Guerrilla’s Sebastian Downie has some information of how the limited time points bonanza will work.

Seb lays out the details:

A Win will earn you a 2.5 multiplier and a Loss will still grant you the normal multiplier for a Win: 1.5. This applies only to individual points, not Clan Valor and will be available in all regions during this time. We hope all those coming new to Killzone 2 and the veterans alike will take part in this celebration and make sure to keep an eye out for people with [GG] in front of their handles. We’ll be rocking the new DLC this weekend too.

Despite this, we’re hearing some reports that people are not experiencing the points boon. If this is happening to you, let us know in the comments.

In other Killzone news, some comments emerged this week how Guerrilla Games will now be taking a step back from the popular FPS. Such a decision is somewhat understandable, especially considering the vast amount of work the studio has put in to the game.  From the retail version to the numerous DLC packs and updates, not to mention the stellar job they did with, the team has been kept busy on Helghan for a number of years.

Seb’s comments regarding how they plan to now “reflect on what’s out there” has led some to believe that the Dutch developer are gearing up for Killzone 3. With other musings coming out of the low country suggesting Guerrilla are far from finished with the PS3, a third (technically fourth if you include Liberation) chapter in the series would hardly come as a surprise and, if true, we can’t wait to see where Guerrilla take the franchise next.
