228w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Sebastian Downie has announced on the PlayStation Blog news that the Killzone 2 Double XP weekend starts now!
To quote: It has been a exciting week at Guerrilla Games with the release of the third DLC map pack "Napalm & Cordite", the release of patch 1.29, the latest update to www.killzone.com, the announcement of the "Map Pack Bundle" and the opening of "Our World" an art exhibition here in the Netherlands based around the visually creative process of making the Killzone 2 universe and those that inhabit it.

The most attractive and charismatic fans any video-game can have. (Yes, flattery won't get me anywhere) And what better way to thank ones loyal fans than with POINTS!
This weekend from Friday at 17:30 GMT till Monday morning at 09:00, any games created will give extra XP points to let you guys rank up...

Make no mistake, this mode is HUGE... it's packed with unlocks, rewards and trophies, and has been designed to keep challenging you for as long as you want it to. How? Buckle up and I'll divulge some (but certainly not all) of its secrets!
We were very pleased that the speed race events in Pacific Rift were so fantastically popular - they provided a great change of focus and pace from the Eliminator and Race events, and had the scope for repeated play, and for beating your own best score.
While we'll be the first to admit the formula wasn't yet perfected, we all felt we had taken the first steps here towards something...

In addition, we'll be doing some DLC promotion on the Xbox Live Marketplace that will allow you to download the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Variety Map Pack for 50% off, which means you'll be able to snag all four maps for just 400 MS points.
That's not all though, thanks to so many of you who have written in and requested; we've been able to work it out to get the Prestige Gamer pic pack back on the marketplace for download for all those who missed out on it's limited offering during our last LIVE fire weekend.
So you'll be able to grab gamer pics of every prestige rank after downloading the discounted Variety Map Pack.
