173w ago - SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has shared a hands-on video today featuring Killzone 3 Multiplayer for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system alongside some fresh KZ3 PlayStation Move footage.
To quote: Ever since I first got my hands on Killzone 3 back at the launch event in Amsterdam, I've been itching to try its multiplayer.
Last night at the SCEE gamescom press conference I saw the trailer below and my anticipation maxed out; this morning, my first port of call had to be my friends from Guerrilla Games.

Before that, we were introduced to two brand new game modes. The first is Guerrilla Warfare, which is essentially team deathmatch with a greater emphasis on close quarters combat and dynamic spawn points that ensure you always revive close to the action but out of the line of fire.

It offers 2 new game modes, a new matchmaking system, vehicles, Brutal Melee attacks and more ranks, abilities and rewards than you can shake a stick at!
The trailer contains never-before-seen footage from one of the multiplayer levels, called Corinth Highway. It is situated on the edge of Pyrrhus, the city which was nuked by Visari in an attempt to decimate the occupying ISA Forces.
Now, a handful of surviving ISA and Helghast troops find themselves fighting for every square inch of remaining infrastructure in this broken city, while on the other side of the Pyrrhus River a new...
