149w ago - Today a new Killzone 3 PS3 MP video is available via YouTube courtesy of the EU PS Blog, and SCEA's Product Marketing Specialist David Bull has revealed details on the KZ3 Single Player PlayStation 3 demo which will hit PSN this February.
To quote: Today we are giving you a sneak preview of one of our new Killzone 3 Multiplayer levels: MP08 Kaznan Jungle. It is a tight, intricate map especially catered towards one of our new game modes, Guerrilla Warfare.
The Kaznan Jungle harbors the wreckage of a downed ISA Cruiser. Survivors of the failed evacuation of Helghan must fight for their lives against a Helghast enemy bent on their annihilation, but they are not the only predators in the area... The jungle, the plants and insects that call it home are friend to no-one.
You will also get to see the Infiltrator at work in this video. The infiltrator hides in plain sight, using deception to confuse the enemy while going about his tasks. His basic equipment consists of an M13 shotgun and a holo-emitter that allows him to disguise as a member of the opposing team.
178w ago - Currently slated for a February 2011 release, today Adam Sessler has shared a preview video of Killzone 3 for the PlayStation 3 including details on the video game's PlayStation Move compatibility, PS3 3D gameplay, jet packs, weapons and environments.
Developed by Guerrilla Games, Killzone 3 will take place in various harsh environments such as Arctic landscapes, a lethal alien jungle, nuclear wastelands as well as space battles rather than only the city-scape environment which were present in its predecessors.
Another notable new feature is the ability to use jet packs in the game, which were seen in Killzone: Liberation, however, these new jet packs will be used in a different manner than that of those that appeared in Killzone: Liberation.
The game will also feature a revamped close combat melee system which include new brutal melee attacks as well as the ability to string together multiple attacks in a combo.
Unlike its predecessor, Killzone 3 will feature fully destructible environments which is an improvement from its predecessor which featured only partially destructible environments in limited areas.
