Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Apr 21, 2009 // Sr. Social Media Manager

Last week we announced Killzone 2’s first downloadable map pack, “Steel & Titanium.” In case that’s not ringing a bell, take a look at this new trailer for the two-map set:

Today we can also confirm that “Steel & Titanium Pack” will be available on the PlayStation Store next week (April 30th) for $5.99.

you should be happy we bought your game man, why try to milk us for everything we got? is that the way to treat your loyal fans? no freakin way i’m paying 5.99, almost 8 bucks with tax for 2 maps, your kidding right? time to give gamestop your money. DLC is getting out of hand, what if i don’t buy the maps and a friend of mine does? the game is no good for me anymore because i can’t follow him anymore on multiplayer games, this is stupid because we did purchase the same game after all and now my friend and i end up with 2 different games in the end, i’m getting fed up with this DLC crap.

$6?? Outrageous.

When this hits $1.99 I might buy it, but I won’t support holding back content at launch, just to charge 10% of the game’s price for it later.

With 8 shipping MP maps, at $6 per two maps, that means that according to their pricing, making the maps that shipped took almost HALF the entire game’s time / budget. I highly doubt that.

Making great maps takes a *lot* of time and effort, but come on… this is inexcusable.

I’m going to buy it, I am a huge fan of the game. Although I will make one comment, if people don’t buy this and populate the servers with either of these maps I will be upset. I don’t want this to split the community entirely and I want to have a good time with these online!

$5.99 would be fine if the map pack had three or four….but two? no thanks, way to rip us off…5.99 now, and then a month later another map pack for $10. Thank you sony for giving us text chat…and now two maps for $6!!1

+ HanSolo on April 21st, 2009 at 2:09 pm said:

$ 5.99 for 2 maps is way too much, and also a big mistake, you will be splitting the community to early in the stage of this game

i wished you listened to my advice and at least made the first dlc free to keep the community growing, o well too greedy too early

People on this blog are stupid. Overpriced? Holding back content? Good God you would think people with a $400 game system would be whining about 1 dollar, since they seem to think 4.99 would be O.K. (Maybe their parents bought them their system)

New Blog Feature… Ignore option.

Make it happen guys!

+ DirtyDee on April 21st, 2009 at 2:50 pm said:

Oh and as for split community… shut the hell up, all of the friggin community still has access to all the standard maps.

Stop crying about your online boyfriend not having the maps.

Listen up, b*&%^&s, there’s something called Game Resources; there’s no developer out there stupid enough to develop new game textures, sound effects, and external world models in 2 months to charge only $6 dollars, and I’M ONLY TALKING ABOUT ONE F^%$^*(& MAP! I’m still getting these maps, and if you trolls and b*(&*^s don’t want to pay for it, then GET THE F)%& OFF.

@176
Games that I thought were AAA are MGS4,VC,Uncharted,R@C,CoD4,MLB the show 08 and 09, LBP, GT5P, the others fall into great category like motor storm and rock band but KZ2 falls into the terrible margin. Sorry I don’t like KZ2, but sales show that im not the only ps owner that thinks it sucks also. Then these people have guts to charge like $8 for 2 maps? lol

2 maps for 5.99$ is a bit overpriced, if you changed the price we pay here in Canada its gonna be something like 7.99$, at that price ill pass.
Usually i dont complain about prices of anything when i want it but that.. i mean i can live without it

I’m probably not the first to say this but still..

@ numerous people complaining

Seriously guys, nobody wants to hear you talking about how your not going to buy it. I’m sure we’d all love for them to make us free stuff but really, we live in a world of money so obviously GG/Sony would charge for this. They kinda need to in order to make money to keep the business running and keep making new DLC.
If you think $5.99 is expensive then how did you buy a PS3?!
If $5.99 is the price of perfection, then I’m sold.

Keep up the good work GG. Can’t wait for the next surprise.

+ Vocor_Kane on April 21st, 2009 at 4:20 pm said:

$6 is a little more than what I wanted to pay for two maps, but I’ll consider it. What frustrates me the most about this update and price point is that it will now split the community over what? Two maps. What’s going to happen in the rotation? It’s hard enough sometimes to find enough people for tourney games when everyone has the maps on the disc. Tournament games at the new maps will be almost impossible to fill after the first few weeks.

Hmmm…six bucks, eh – So if I skip my large coffee and bagel on release day, I can afford to buy two maps that I can enjoy for weeks on end…

…it’s a tough call…LMFAO

@225 hmmm ok why not…

I’m not complaining about the fact that we have to pay for maps lol, its normal but 5.99$ or 7.99CAN for 2 maps its a bit overpriced, maybe i would not complain at all if i was a big fan of FPS but its not the case even if i like Killzone a lot, if you realize it 8$CAN is 1/7 of what the complete game cost me
maybe they are trying to get some money to compensate for the free updates coming

and what are you talking about with your resident evil BS?

I will get this but only because I’ll be splitting the cost with my friend. Otherwise I would still probably get it because I like this game so much. This costs too much regardless.

RIP OFF RIP OFF!!!! even if it does have 12 new trophies 5.99 is a rip off for 2 maps it should be like 2.99 or 3.99 for this DLC, i mean RE5 gave a new game mode in their DLC with some maps and it was 4.99 you guys are ripping us people off

The two maps aren’t ports of their single player brethren. Instead, they’re two maps based on levels from the single player campaign.

__________________________________________

The maps arent ports.

The maps are ports.

$10.00 AU

I’m not buying it.

I’d rather play with the non split part of the community.

Sorry, but thats an epic fail right there if I have ever seen one.

I’m not cheap, it’s just a matter of not being able to understand why?

1. You want to split the community so early.

2. $10.00 AU? Your kidding right?

it is extremely pathetic to charge 3 bucks for a map. in this economy there is no way i can afford to each lunch, let alone skip one to buy this crap.

@jeff: any chance it will ever be free, 6 or 12 months down the line?


239

+ phinnv8 on April 21st, 2009 at 8:50 pm said:

Sounds great but honestly unless the levels are reviewed to be “very large” in size I won’t be getting it. The maps that come with the game are a cluster F online with 32 players, and yea i can choose 16 or 24 but I don’t WANT to find those rooms as far less people play in them. The game needs huge maps to better support 32 players like Warhawk, SOCOM, or Bad Company have in their design.

Also, PS3 needs cross game voice chat Sony.

+ SHINSPIKES on April 21st, 2009 at 8:53 pm said:

2 maps aren’t worth 6 bucks. I’m sure the maps are great, but just the 2 maps and nothin else is a rip off. No new weapons (besides the ones related to the single player campaign). No new classes, and no new ranks (not includin the ones with the update). Other games give at least 3 new maps, and plenty of other content. If this was rushed, yah should have waited to release this or released this with the retro maps yah were plannin. To reward us for makin this the best sellin exclusive ps3 game, yah should have made it free.

+ big-gunns on April 21st, 2009 at 8:59 pm said:

Not trying to sound cheap or anything but why $5.99? What’s wrong with $4.99? Just a dollar less but I bet a lot of people wouldn’t complain as much if it were only $5 bucks. Alas, a day one purchase for me.


242

+ AUSSIERACER1 on April 21st, 2009 at 9:06 pm said:

Now I’m really disappointed. For only two maps, US$5.99 is overpriced. Especially after I got my hopes up that it would be free, thanks to various sources. I don’t have a credit card, or PSN cards available in Australia either. Even so, US$5.99 converted to Aussie dollars? I don’t want to know.

This sucks, now there will be hardly any games available for me to play online. Way to price me out of this community Sony and GG :(

Can’t wait for more online games that are better now. Come on MAG.

+ Slimmer_ on April 21st, 2009 at 9:08 pm said:

for all you Math majors who count by the cost of Smokes and I feel sorry for you because you are ruining my Health Care costs.

$5.99 is 10% of the Original Cost of KZ2.

2 Maps is not anywhere near 10% worth of the Original game. That is why the cost is way too much.

Those thinking there will be Trophies included… lol you actually believed that post from that kid and how easy it was to make it up.

The great thing about this is, you all have the freedom of not having to buy it. If you “can’t” afford it, then don’t buy it. Let the others with 6 bucks buy it. I bet an homeless guy would also be able to afford the maps.

I wanted this for free. I would have paid $3 for it… but nay at $5.99

The maps are not new really as theyre from the single player.. and they dont really add a fresh enough setting. Add some new weather/terrains. I would pay $10 for a map pack with one snow level. And im not kidding

To anybody who says ‘stop being cheap.. whats an extra $6″… its the principle of the fact.

Is there really more value in 2 maps, ripped from the game (yeah yeah,, “inspired”, they look the same).. when for a few more dollars I could buy a PSN game. For $10 I could buy a full game used from EB games or on kijiji/ebay?

No.
