Killzone celebrates its 5th birthday with Killzone 1, tournaments, and double XP
Sure, the game was released on November 2nd in the US but the team is based in the Netherlands so they celebrate the European release. Time to bring out the candles!
In celebration, Guerrilla Games wants to invite fans to the party. Here are some of the activities they have planned:
Looking back at Killzone 1
Later this week on Killzone.com, Seb “Motherh” Downie and Eric Boltjes are going to play through the first Killzone game for you. They’ll be commenting on their favourite sections and wallowing in beer-induced nostalgia.
DLC download code giveaway
Haven’t checked out the Killzone 2 DLC map packs yet? You’re in luck, because Guerrilla is having a DLC download code giveaway. Keep a close eye on Killzone.com this week for full details!
Killzone 2 retro tournament
This weekend (November 27-30) Guerrilla will host a Killzone 2 retro tournament, using only the Beach Head and Southern Hills maps from the second DLC pack. And there’s more to be gained than valor alone, because…
Double XP Weekend returns
…the tournament will take place during a Double XP Weekend! Just like last time, any game created in the weekend of November 27-30 will yield extra XP to help you boost your ranking.
Killzone 1 and 2 side-by-side
Finally, Killzone.com editor Victor Zuylen will compare various features of Killzone 2 with its predecessor next week, illustrating exactly how far we’ve come since the first Killzone game was released.
Now that sounds like a fun party. Be sure to log on and join in on the festivities. In addition, Killzone 2 DLC is currently on sale on the US PlayStation Store. Flash & Thunder is $2.99 and the Map Pack Bundle is $9.99. The sale lasts until December 10th so download it while it lasts.
