- Guerrilla Games Producer Aryeh Loeb
has introduced the Killzone 3 PS3 Retro Map Pack today, which is free to all who pre-order the Killzone 3 standard or Helghast Editions.
To quote: Ever find yourself longing for the good old days of the year 2359, when the invasion of Helghan had just gotten underway and you were fighting a desperate bloody battle over every inch of its capital city?
That's perfectly understandable - why, we all do sometimes. But now there's the Killzone 3 Retro Map Pack, which lets you relive those glorious multiplayer battles in the market streets and canals of Pyrrhus!
The Retro Map Pack can be purchased from the PlayStation Network, however as we announced back in October of last year, the Retro Map Pack is available for FREE to anyone who pre-orders either the Killzone 3 standard or Helghast Editions at participating retailers
The Retro Map Pack consists of two classic Killzone 2 multiplayer maps, thoroughly updated and reworked for Killzone 3's multiplayer mode. Check out the details below:
Game Type: Warzone - 24 Players
One of the largest maps from Killzone 2, Salamun Market has been re-balanced for maximum Killzone 3 carnage. After the Helghast ambush an ISA convoy on its main road, the whole market becomes a Warzone. Nostalgia meets brand-new Exoskeleton combat on this classic multiplayer map!
Game Type: Guerrilla Warfare - 16 Players
Months after the nuclear blast that ruined most of the city, Blood Gracht is slowly being reclaimed by Helghan's strange plant life. But when Guerrilla Warfare breaks out between ISA and Helghast troops, the canals once again run red with blood. The fan-favorite multiplayer map from Killzone 2 makes a triumphant return!
If you haven't played Killzone 2 yet, or if an old war injury prevents you from remembering what Salamun Market and Blood Gracht originally looked like (again - we've all been there), a comparison video of the old and the new versions of the maps will be posted here in a few days.
For now, enjoy reminiscing while you look at the screenshots, and remember to pre-order Killzone 3 to get the Retro Map Pack for FREE.
