Killzone 3 officially announced; will be “more intense than ever before”
News leaked over the weekend that Killzone 3 was in production and it came as no surprise. We now have official conformation from SCEE, calling it “David vs. Goliath…if Goliath had thousands of troops and a thermonuclear arsenal.”
Killzone 3 takes place exactly where 2 left off. Viscari is dead and Special Forces members Sev and Rico are all that remain of the ISA on Helghan after a massive nuclear bomb decimated all of Phyruss and the rest of the ISA ground troops. It’s up to them now to put a stop to the Helghast once and for all. The battle may be over, but the war has just begun…
An epic cinematic war experience
With levels ten times bigger than in Killzone 2, this is Helghan like you’ve never seen it before. You’ll face brutal combat in a host of environments that threaten to bury you on the deadly planet. Killzone 3 will see you trudge through toxic nuclear wastelands, get lost in a lethal alien jungle, fight in bitter arctic conditions and take the battle into space as you fight against Helghast domination – with every location featuring a distinct gameplay style for you to master.
Be at the centre of the action
Killzone 3 will be fully playable in Stereoscopic 3D, immersing you more deeply into the ferocious world and putting you at the heart of the action. But be careful. While you experience this world in incredible, High Definition, Stereoscopic 3D detail – you’ll learn to fear what’s around every single corner.
Take on an even more vicious Helghast army
The Helghast are back and they’re bigger and fiercer than you’ve ever seen them. From Jetpack troopers to enemies wielding portable weapons of mass destruction, your enemies will be tougher, scarier and equipped with a host of new toys in their quest for destruction.
Prepare for battle!
The press release confirms everything that will be featured in the next issue of GamePro. Stereoscopic 3D, arctic conditions, jetpacks; it’s all going to make Killzone 3 bigger and better than its predecessor.
The game will no doubt be making an appearance in a few weeks at E3 and will hopefully be playable in some form. Be sure to check the official website for more details as they arise as well.
