Hey Everyone,

Here at Guerrilla headquarters we have been eagerly anticipating the launch of the Killzone 2. Today is that day. It is a fantastic occasion where we finally put the game in the hands of the people who have been so very supportive and vocal about the game all this time. Thank you for your support! We really hope you will enjoy your time with the game and are looking forward to joining you in online matches. If you see anyone with a ‘GG’ in front of their names, go easy. It’s us.

Game is soooooo good.

One thing though, online voice chat is pretty poor.

I play a ton of online games, and it’s nowhere near where it should be.

Very little to no lag though, so that’s good. Any chance the voice chat could be improved somehow with a patch?

Whoops sorry. Retracting my comment out the input lag of ~5 sec. What I meant to say was ~5 frames! Sorry.

Anyways, just waiting for UPS to drop off my copy of KZ2 any time now. /self bored :-(

I just opened it up. Thanks for the great game. I hope the next project you are making a sequel to my favorite PSP game Killzone:Liberation. Thanks GG!

@asshander

Only around 200,000 people have entered the online part of killzone 2, so expect voice chat to increase once there are more than a million on the leaderboards,

Thank you GG! It’s been well worth the wait and whatever little time off you guys can get…you deserve it.

Good job GG, Killzone 2 is amazing from start to finish!

Thank you very much for making this game, Mr. Hulst and everyone at GG! I’ve only played a little bit of Skirmish with bots so far & am deeply impressed.

I would like to see some DLC that includes multiplayer with mechs and vehicles.

I’m very disappointed that you took bots out of online MP matches. This is a promised feature of the game and one of the main reasons that I and my friends are buying it. We don’t want to play with strangers who are usually foul-mouthed jerks. So we need to be able to add bots so we can have a full room. We don’t care about stats. Just give us unranked rooms with everything unlocked so we can have fun (remember that’s why people buy games–they want to have fun not track some meaningless stats). I hope you will rectify this situation as soon as possible. Thanks.

This is one kick ass ride! I would have to say this should definitely be in the running for game of the year. Outstanding job Guerrilla! I wish you the best on your next project! You have proven that the PS3 is a powerhouse. You have hit top spot for developer of the year in my book! I have to get back to busting some Helghast heads!

I love it man, it’s the Game of the Year in my opinion so far… and I’ve been waiting for something to make me stop playing COD4.

Haven’t even touched the single player so I got lots of hours to enjoy this baby!

absolutely amazing


165

+ Asshandler on February 27th, 2009 at 6:40 pm said:

Why did you remove the bots from online play?! That was the closest thing to a co-op mode this game had, and now it doesn’t even have that.

I don’t care if some 13 year old kids are complaining because some people are ranking up faster than them, who cares. I just want to be able to play with my friends in a private room against a bunch of bots for maximum fun.

Please change it back. :(

It is ironic that I won’t be playing Killzone 2, because I don’t have a PS3, yet. But, when I do watch your back, I’ll have you in my gunsites.

To celebrate the release of Killzone 2, I’ve posted a FREE DOWNLOAD of my Dragonfly Game Flipz book based on the excellent Killzone: War. Perfected. TV commercial. You can see it on user movie at Gametrailers.com, youtube and my blog. Here’s is a chance for Killzone fans (and all gamers) who said they wanted one to have a Dragonfly Game Flipz, to get one. So, pass the word to friends and Killzone fan sites.
Just go to my website, http://www.dragonflyent.net, and click on the cover image in the upper left hand corner to download the PDF file. Read the instruction on the 11th and 12th page. Basically print it out and assemble it. As a bonus, I’ve included a choice of ISA, or Helghast cover art.

I just picked up the Brady Games Killzone 2 game guide book from my local GameStop. My Dragonfly Game Flipz books would have been a nice bonus for pre-order customers, but I quess it wasn’t meant to be. I may do more from time to time, my main focus will turn to my own projects. Look for them soon.

Enjoy.

went to midnight launch and showed up at 11:30pm. i was the only one there :(. In total only 5 people picked up their copy then.

great game though. well worth the wait. i wish the online round time a kill level would default at 15 minutes and like 50 or so kills. The 5 minutes is way too short for my liking but if you search you can find people who have longer rounds which is nice.

Congrats to Sony and GG. This is one of the best FPS I have ever played.

Launching Killzone.com from within the game opens the browser.. and says Adobe 9 required.

My only complaint about killzone 2 is the slowdowns that happen due to loading in the campaign. Other than that this game is a great product.

@ 173

LOL, I haven’t bought the game but that’s the kind of programming mistake (guerilla tactic?) I just have to laugh at.

I’ll have to pick up the game tomorrow just to see that.

+ Verbose on February 27th, 2009 at 9:34 pm said:

Hermen,

I’ve already sent this off as a feedback email through Killzone.com, but I figured I might have your attention here…

There’s a bug in the game that I and others are experiencing with SIXAXIS sequences…

I have Rock Band, and as such have dongles for both the guitar and drums plugged into my PS3′s USB ports at all times. As such, my DualShock 3 controller is assigned port #3 on startup.

Killzone 2 requires that I be using a controller on port #1, so I re-assign my controller after launching the game, which works fine until there’s a moment in the game which requires SIXAXIS. For whatever reason, SIXAXIS doesn’t work properly in KZ2 if the controller has been re-assigned after launching the game. I’m forced to pause the game and power-cycle the controller. That seems to solve the problem for me.

It’s definitely a glitch/bug though…whether it’s with the PS3 or the game, that’s for you guys to figure out. I’m hoping for a patch to resolve this issue, as it is a pretty major nuisance.

Cheers,
James

Also…Killzone.com will not display on a PS3 because it requires Flash Player 9 to be installed, where the PS3 browser is only capable of Flash 8 (I believe, feel free to correct me on this).

still wished I could replace the pistol with a diferent a weapon. so I could have an rpg and rifle.

+ Confucius89 on February 27th, 2009 at 9:44 pm said:

This game far exceeds my expectations, Good challenging single player with intelligent AI.
And the most addictive multiplayer mode ever.
If anything there was not enough hype for this game, in fact the only bad thing I can say about this game is that it’s gonna distract me from homework and work, guess I can say goodbye to my social life.

Been playing for four hours now. A little glitchy with “Killzone.com”. It DOES update my stats, but I can’t access it from my PS3.

No worries though. This game has restored my faith in the video game industry. It’s simply epic. I haven’t played for four hours just to say I did. I played because I found it absolutely addicting. And I haven’t even played online yet.

Can’t wait for that later :)

AWESOME job GG!

(starts slow clap leading to cheers and joyful yelling)

Can’t wait to play KZ2 in a few minutes, so I can see if it is finally an end to “the oranges rolling down the hill” comments.

+ blindrocket on February 27th, 2009 at 11:09 pm said:

I played single player and multiplayer tonight. Both are great, though the single player controls aren’t the most responsive and it hurts my gameplay (I know this was a design decision).

The graphics are flat out amazing. Sony should use this engine for more games, especially a scary third person game. ;)

GG has solidified themselves as a top-notch AAA developer. There is no longer any debate. But really, you can say that about all of Sony’s first part developers. <3 Sony

Awesome game. Thank you GG and Sony. I havent even touched the single Player yet but Ive had a blast with the MP. Definitely one of the smoothest and best nights Ive had online with a game on the launch day. No lag or major issues at all. Seriously keep up the good work. My wife and I thank you guys and even bought two copies so we could game online together.
