85w ago - Activision Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has shared details today from Infinity Ward on the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (MW3) Content Collection 1 and Double XP below!
To quote: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Content Collection 1 arrives in the PlayStation Store today, and it brings with it a whole weekend of double XP.
This is the biggest DLC collection in franchise history, offering four multiplayer/Survival mode maps - Piazza, Liberation, Overwatch, and Black Box - as well as two all-new Special Ops missions, Black Ice and Negotiator.
That kind of content doesn't just make itself, so I asked Mark Rubin, Executive Producer at Infinity Ward, for some insight into how the studio approaches making add-on content for MW3.
Dan Amrich: Everybody has different tastes in maps. When you put together a collection, are you trying to please different groups of fans with specific maps, or do you try to make every map have something for everyone in it?
Mark Rubin: Any map can come up at any time in any game mode, so we never want to make a map that leaves players thinking "this isn't for me."
Even when we design a map like Liberation, which snipers enjoy with its long sight-lines, we still create areas for players who enjoy, say,...
92w 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!...
133w 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!
133w ago - Today Activision's Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has announced news that a Double XP weekend is incoming for Call of Duty: Black Ops on the PlayStation 3.
To quote: Leo Tolstoy once said, "The two most powerful warriors are patience and time."
Ask any PlayStation gamer who missed out on the Call of Duty: Black Ops double XP weekend a few weeks ago, and they'll tell you: Leo knew what he was talking about.
While other platforms soaked up the extra experience points, PS3 gamers had to hang in there while PlayStation put everything in order behind the scenes. In cases like that, patience isn't a virtue – patience is a pain in the butt.
As the double-XP date loomed nearer, more and more PlayStation gamers wondered if they'd be able to take part in the festivities, and Treyarch - developer of Black Ops - swore to fans that they would not be forgotten.
This weekend, they're quickly making good on that promise, with a double-XP period that lasts from this Friday, May 20th at 10am all the way through the weekend and beyond - the good stuff keeps coming until 10am on Tuesday the 24th. What's more, that's...
To celebrate this great double honor, we're going to kick off another week of Double XP. Starting tomorrow, November 23rd, go nuts and double your XP in MNR during the Thanksgiving holiday.
It really is a special feeling to be recognized for making a game that we believe in, and we sincerely thank our awesome community for all your support.
