Ever since SCEE and Guerilla Games let it slip that Killzone 3 is in the works last month, there has been a steady stream of new info coming about the game – It’s coming. It’s gonna be in 3D. It’s going to push the limits of what the PS3 can do. Now, Sony has released the “debut trailer” for the game. No, the trailer doesn’t show off anything substantial about the game: It’s a classic “show off your visuals to look cool and get people excited” kind of trailer.
(WARNING: THIS POST CONTAINS “KILLZONE 2” SPOILERS)
Days after Gamepro broke the news that Killzone 3 is on the way, Sony Computer Entertainment of Europe made their own announcement via their blog. Frankly speaking, SCEE’s announcement didn’t provide much new information about the game as a whole, but it did discuss the plot of the single-player campaign. Killzone 3 picks up exactly where Killzone 2 left off – The team is stuck on Helghan looking for a way out. Meanwhile, with Visari dead, the Helghast government is imploding as multiple factions fight for power.
The best part of the announcement, though, was that SCEE posted their first screens of the game. Check ’em out.
After months of rumors, Sony has confirmed that “Killzone 3” is on the way and that, yes, it is being designed with 3D in mind. Series developer Guerilla gave Gamepro the exclusive first look, which will be featured in their upcoming June issue. Luckily for us, their readers have wasted no time in shouting the news to anybody who’ll listen. According to one reader account, noteworthy features the abundant use of jet-packs, “diverse terrain” (though the feature seems to focus on an “arctic” setting), and a plot that’s even more epic than its predecessors.
SCEE (Sony Computer Entertainment of Europe) announced today that they are purchasing developer Media Molecule, the firm responsible for “LittleBigPlanet”. SCEE posted their public announcement on their company blog this morning, declaring that “nothing will change” for gamers; “Media Molecule will simply continue to make great games.”
Given that the developer’s only project to date was “LittleBigPlanet”, the decision to merge the two companies makes perfect sense. Comparing this action with the last major industry acquisition, Warner Bros Interactive buying up Rocksteady, it would make sense to imply that “Molecule” may be working on the next major entry in the “LittleBigPlanet” franchise.
