40w ago - Guerrilla Games Managing Director Hermen Hulst has shared a new video trailer today at GamesCom 2012 for Killzone: Mercenary on the PS Vita handheld console!
To quote: Today we're really excited to present the first official gameplay trailer for Killzone: Mercenary at Gamescom.
Designed specifically for the PlayStation Vita platform, Killzone: Mercenary is a first-person shooter that makes full use of the device's graphical and input capabilities.
It was built on the same powerful engine as Killzone 3, and it enhances the familiar twin-stick FPS control scheme with touch pad functionality for interesting new gameplay possibilities.
With Killzone: Mercenary, we want to offer PlayStation Vita owners a fresh perspective on the brutal conflict between ISA and Helghast - literally.
For the first time in a Killzone campaign, you'll be fighting alongside Helghast forces as well as ISA specialists, carrying out missions that the regular soldiers just won't - or can't.
As a mercenary, you're free to decide which tactics and loadouts you'll use to fulfill your contract; your employers will reward you with state-of-the-art weaponry and cold, hard cash as long as you get the job done. But what is the price of that freedom - and will you discover it before...
64w 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!...
90w ago - Today Von Victor Zuylen at Guerrilla Games has shared details on the upcoming Killzone 3 PS3 patch 1.12 which arrives next week on September 6, 2011.
Below are the details, to quote: On Tuesday, September 6, Guerrilla will release patch 1.12 for Killzone 3.

• Increased armor for engineer turrets (30%) - Turrets can still be destroyed by a single explosion from a grenade or missile launcher.
• Improved StA-2 Battle Pistol - Detonation time for the StA-2 Battle Pistol's grenade is shorter, and the damage it deals is more severe.
