Was there really any doubt in your mind that we wouldn't see another Killzone video game on the Playstation 3? Of course not, it's one of their best selling game franchises!
Killzone 3 picks up right after the events of Killzone 2. According to the press release the player will take on the Helghast as a lone warrior following the nuclear annihilation of the Helghan capital, Phyruss. Sony is going all out on this one, the game will include levels “ten times bigger than in Killzone 2,” and will feature several more environments, that includes “toxic nuclear wastelands,” a “lethal alien jungle,” “bitter arctic conditions” and even space. Sony gives a great quote explaining, "This is David vs. Goliath…if Goliath had thousands of troops and a thermonuclear arsenal." Whoa.
On top of all that... Here are a few more little details we have to look forward to.
- The game includes jetpacks, which are described as "surprisingly lightweight and agile." Also, jetpack is easier to maneuver compared to the sluggish incarnations of the gadget found in other games."
- The game will support Stereoscopic 3D, and the 3D will apparently be a “Game Changer."
- The combat is "unchanged from predecessor,” except for the addition of hand-to-hand abilities that have you “Unloading a string of different (and often brutal) attacks on stunned enemies."
- The overall feel will be that “of being in a place far away from home, outnumbered by people who want to kill you."
