Killzone 2 Steel & Titanium Map Packs Hit PSN on April 30, 2009
As a follow-up to our earlier article confirming that Killzone 2 DLC will not be free, Sony has made an official announcement today as well.
According to Sony's Public Relations Manager Alex Armour:
We wanted to reiterate some of the key details of what will be available as well as let you know the official date it will be on the PSN for download: April 30th. The price for this map pack is still TBA.
The first DLC pack, called "Steel and Titanium", will contain two brand new multiplayer maps with new gameplay elements and strategic twists, sure to test even the most skilled players.
The first map in the pack is Wasteland Bullet, and the action will take place on the bullet train that and transports goods and troops between Pyrrhus and the Wasteland.
The game is a frenzied firefight to wrestle control of the train from the enemy and into the hands of your faction. With the train moving at full speed, players will need to remain aware of the immediate environment as well as enemies - hitting an overhead obstacle at this speed will mean instant death.
The second map, Vekta Cruiser, will find ISA troops boarding a vast ship with the goal to repel a force of assaulting Helghast troops while also protecting the cruiser itself from heavy Helghan fire.
The action takes place entirely indoors in a frantic and claustrophobic battle where attackers lurk around every corner.
