58w ago - CCP Sentinel's Ryan Geddes has officially invited fans to join the Dust 514 double skill point weekend on PlayStation 3 today!
To quote: As an immortal mercenary in DUST 514, Skill Points are your dearest friends. They're your path to better gear, faster movement, deeper customization and even social standing. And on the war-torn planetary battlefields of New Eden, they don't come cheap.
For an extended weekend, we're doubling the number of Skill Points our bullet-scarred beta testers will gain in every battle, from 1 November through 8 November. That means every headshot, NULL Cannon hack, dropship takedown - everything you do on the battlefield - will get you twice as close to your goal of galactic dominance.
Whether you're working toward building the ultimate tank commander, striving to become a megacorporation CEO or simply trying to piece together your own unique hybrid warrior class, every single Skill Point helps.
If you're already playing the beta, you won't want to miss the DUST 514 Double Skill Point Weekend. Our latest build, Codex, introduced new environments, weapons, avatars, equipment and a lot more. And if you haven't given the beta a shot yet, now is the perfect time to step onto into New Eden.
93w ago - Killzone Community Editor Victor Zuylen has announced that the standalone Killzone 3 multiplayer hits PSN today, and also confirmed for fans that this will be a Double XP weekend as well!
To quote: To celebrate Killzone 3's first anniversary, we're releasing a standalone version of the game's online component on PlayStation Store today.
Dubbed "Killzone 3 Multiplayer," it includes the Guerrilla Warfare, Warzone, and Operations game modes, as well as the original Killzone 3 maps and all Killzone 3 DLC maps.
Best of all, it's free to try - you can play any of the maps and modes until you reach the rank of Sergeant I.
If you want to keep playing, attain higher ranks, and earn any of Killzone 3 Multiplayer's four exclusive new Trophies, you can unlock the full version for only $15. Doing so will net you a 24-hour double XP bonus, three free unlock points, the ability to set up clans and custom games, and access to the Botzone mode to help hone your combat skills.
For those who already own Killzone 3 (or decide to purchase the full version of Killzone 3 Multiplayer), we have another anniversary treat: this weekend will be Double XP Weekend!...
134w ago - Inline with the COD Black Ops Double XP weekend announcement comes another for Killzone 3 on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system!
To quote from Killzone's Community Editor Victor Zuylen on the event news: To celebrate the return of the PlayStation Network and welcome you back to Killzone 3's online battlefield, we've got a Double XP Weekend lined up!
Starting this Friday, May 20 at 17:00 PM UK time, and lasting until Monday, May 23 at 10:00 AM UK time, all XP you earn in Killzone 3's multiplayer matches will be doubled.
The upcoming Double XP Weekend isn't the only Killzone-related goodie in the pipeline. As you may know, Sony has revealed that Killzone: Liberation is part of its Welcome Back Program for PSN members, meaning you'll be able to download the critically acclaimed PlayStation Portable shooter absolutely free of charge. And there's even more... But we'll announce that at a later date.
So stay tuned to Killzone.com, and remember to brush up your Killzone 3 multiplayer skills. This weekend, you'll have a chance to catch up on 3 weeks' worth of rank progression!
180w ago - This weekend Arne announced that Naughty Dog is kicking off an Uncharted 2 PS3 multiplayer double cash holiday weekend!
To quote: "For the next 5 days, the per-match limit on earned cash will be $150,000. That's not a typo–we're running the Double Cash weekend a day longer than typical for a holiday weekend. Make the most of it!
It goes without saying that this is probably a good time to get a leg up on your run to hit level 80. I know I'll be checking into multiplayer to get a jump on gaining levels.
Double Cash Weekend:
Starts: Friday, July 2, 2010 at 10:00 AM PDT
Ends: Wednesday, July 7, 2010 at 10:00 AM PDT"
181w ago - Zipper Interactive Sr. Community Manager Jeremy Dunham has announced that MAG Interdiction (4MB Activation Patch) for PS3 is available today alongside a Double XP weekend!
To quote: Today is the day that MAG fans have been waiting for as our first major DLC, "Interdiction," is now available for purchase from the PlayStation Store for $9.99 US (prices in other regions may vary)!
If you missed our post detailing Interdiction a few weeks back, allow us to sum it up for you:
MAG Interdiction is a brand new game mode built for 128 players. In it, two rival attacking factions fight to gain control of three different command posts while using armored convoys for every squad on the map (that's right, 16 APCs onscreen at once!).
To earn the victory, teams must capture and hold as many objectives as possible to increase their score while simultaneously decreasing their opponents' score across three all-new "faction neutral" maps (Iron Creek Quarry, Lake Bayano Spur, and Sovot Motorway).
In addition to the new maps and gametype, Interdiction will also include the most powerful protection in the game, the "Heavy Improved" armor set,...
