Press Information
For Immediate Release

The Helghast are back. Killzone®3 announced for PlayStation®3 [PS3™]

The war is far from won. Get ready for an epic battle against the deadliest enemies on PS3

London, May 24th 2010: Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has confirmed the return of its iconic first person shooter, Killzone®, to PlayStation®3 [PS3™]. Bringing back the trademark ferocious action on a grand scale, Killzone®3 is an explosive cinematic experience more intense than ever before. Loaded with more vehicles, explosive high powered weapons and a vicious close-combat system, resume the fight against a remorseless Helghast Army of colossal proportions. This is David vs. Goliath…if Goliath had thousands of troops and a thermonuclear arsenal.
The story begins where Killzone®2 left off, with Visari, the vicious Helghast dictator, lying dead at the feet of Special Forces soldiers Sev and Rico. The battle may have been won but the war is far from over. Visari’s death has left behind a world of political scheming, infighting and outright murder. Meanwhile his parting gift, a nuclear bomb detonated in Phyruss, the Helghan Capital, has decimated the ISA invasion force. With no re-enforcements and supplies quickly running out, you must now fight against ruthless Helghast war machine alone.
An epic cinematic war experience
With levels ten times bigger than in Killzone 2, this is Helghan like you’ve never seen it before. You’ll face brutal combat in a host of environments that threaten to bury you on the deadly planet. Killzone 3 will see you trudge through toxic nuclear wastelands, get lost in a lethal alien jungle, fight in bitter arctic conditions and take the battle into space as you fight against Helghast domination – with every location featuring a distinct gameplay style for you to master.

Be at the centre of the action
Killzone 3 will be fully playable in Stereoscopic 3D, immersing you more deeply into the ferocious world and putting you at the heart of the action. But be careful. While you experience this world in incredible, High Definition, Stereoscopic 3D detail – you’ll learn to fear what’s around every single corner.

Take on an even more vicious Helghast army
The Helghast are back and they’re bigger and fiercer than you’ve ever seen them. From Jetpack troopers to enemies wielding portable weapons of mass destruction, your enemies will be tougher, scarier and equipped with a host of new toys in their quest for destruction.

    Hell yes! Next to Half-Life and BLACK, Killzone is my favorite FPS of all time! With that said, I’m slightly disappointed that this was announced before E3, it makes me wonder what else SCEA has in store for gamers. Killzone 2 is pretty damn awesome, however, I would like to see more of the following for part 3:

    ~ A party system for multiplayer.
    ~ At least 5 more weapons OR bring back the Secondary fire that each weapon in first Killzone had.
    ~ Deathmatch Mode. Killzone 1 had it, why not?
    ~ Tweak the Saboteur class so that you actually look like the opponent you are imitating instead of just the default rifleman. Setting up a game of warzone with having only the Saboteur and Rifleman available makes for a very suspenseful but fun match.
    ~ Vehicles in multiplayer would be awesome.
    ~ A more fleshed out story about the Helghast. The ISA aren’t exactly innocent victims in this whole interplanetary war, lets hear the other side of the story!

    ….and thats about it! I also wouldn’t mind some sort of cinema/replay mode but that would be pushing it.
