136w ago - While it's already been confirmed that the Killzone 3 PS3 Beta won't include PlayStation Move nor 3D support, today several videogame sites including Meodia.com (linked above) and GamersDigest.net have received invites and report that testers can expect a 1.3GB download.
To quote: "Several people have confirmed receiving an invitation to a private beta which begins tomorrow, you can find a excerpt from one of these emails a tester has posted online.
Dear Beta Tester,
The follow-up to one of the most critically acclaimed first-person shooters of 2009, Killzone 3, picks up where Killzone 2 left off delivering new weapons and enemies, larger set pieces and environments, more varied missions and a whole new level of intense cinematic action.
In the Beta you will get a taste of the multiplayer mode, including the all-new Operations game type, party system and jetpack and exoskeleton vehicles.
The aim of the Beta Trial is threefold:
• To collect your feedback
• Identify bugs, cheats and exploits
• Test our network and server code in preparation for the Public...
138w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has made available another PlayStation Move video today, this time highlighting Killzone 3 for PS3 in action!
To quote: With PlayStation Move in the hot little hands of gamers around the world, it's time to set our sights on the future of PlayStation Move. In those sights: the glowing red eyes of the Helghast army.
When Killzone 3 drops on February 22nd 2011, Sev and the ISA troops will be packing some state-of-the-art firepower in the form of PlayStation Move.
So how does an elite first-person shooter map to the PlayStation Move control scheme? And how does it stack up to the traditional DualShock controls? We went hands-on to find the answers with Steven Ter Heide from Guerrilla Games.
142w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Aryeh Loeb has revealed today that the Killzone 3 PS3 Multiplayer hands on will be premiering at PAX 2010.
To quote: If you're heading to the 2010 Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle, Washington this weekend, we've got a bit of a treat for you: Killzone 3 will be there, and YOU can go hands-on with the game's multiplayer mode!
This will be the first time the Killzone 3 multiplayer mode is accessible to the public, so we're really anxious to hear what you think. To make sure as many people as possible get a shot, we've got 16 multiplayer pods set up, with 8v8 matches rolling over constantly.
On top of that there'll be seven single-player pods available, three of which sport glorious 3D! We'll be giving away Killzone swag bags at the booth so make sure you get down there early since quantities are limited.
So be sure to visit the Killzone 3 booth at PAX 2010 (that'd be the one patrolled by Helghast Troopers), to get your first taste of the game's single and multiplayer modes. And bring your buddies, because Brutal Melee is also part of the package.
One last thing: keep your eyes out for collectible art cards we're giving out at the Killzone 3 booth with the image above....
