Killzone 2: Battle the Dev Team

Sebastian Downie's Avatar + Posted by Sebastian Downie on May 04, 2009 // Producer, Guerrilla Games

Why hello there, Killzone fans! Glad you could make it!

Many of you have been asking when we would have a ‘Snipe the dev’ event again like we had with Killzone 1 and Killzone: Liberation, and let me tell you that time is NOW!

Killzone 2 Steel & Titanium Pack

Well, tomorrow anyway. Close enough. At 10:00AM Pacific on Tuesday, May 5 we are holding a “Guerrilla Warfare” event on the US servers to celebrate the release of our first DLC Pack: “Steel & Titanium,” and to generally kick some ass. I have assembled the most battle-hardened and skillful developers at Guerrilla Games to go onto the servers and take you through our two newest maps: “Wasteland Bullet” and “Vekta Cruiser,” now available on the Playstation Store.

The developers at Guerrilla Games will be hosting some “Official games,” which some of you will be able to join with passwords provided by the staff here at PlayStation.Blog. If you join those games, we’ll take you on a tour of the new levels, talk about their development and generally hang out. To receive the password and find out the room names, you’ll have to follow the PlayStation.Blog Twitter account: twitter.com/sonyplaystation. There will be plenty of Guerrillas roaming the servers too, picking fights and generally acting as target practice. Also, we will be holding a similar event on the EU servers very shortly after, so no need to all flood over.

So, to recap:

WHAT: Play two of the newest Killzone 2 maps online with Guerrilla Games.

WHEN: Games start at 10AM Pacific / 1PM Eastern tomorrow, May 5.

WHERE: “Official” Guerrilla-hosted Killzone 2 games (US only)

HOW: Check twitter.com/sonyplaystation at 9:30AM Pacific / 12:30PM Eastern for passwords to the official games.

So see you tomorrow, and if you see a [GG] tag in front of the name of a passing enemy, say hi to him before blowing his brains out and tea-bagging him. He’ll appreciate it more that way.

Seb “motherh” Downie

PS: Voting for the Golden Joysticks has opened and us being a bunch of attention-seeking media-whores, we always like to see our names in lights, so take a minute and vote for Killzone 2 for the ‘Multiplayer Game of the Year,’ Playstation GOTY, Soundtrack OTY and Ultimate GOTY here. Thanks a lot!

Got mix and match for Sab, Soldier and Sniper.

Wanted Tactician ability.

But please listen, 4 air support kills in one round is RIDICULOUS. Please don’t make my unlocks based on luck. If I can’t control it, then it shouldn’t be a basis of a perk.

Thats why I gave up anyway.

That’s a couple of hours before I have to go to class, so I’ll definitely be able to play for a little bit. I’ll get up around 11:30 here in Dallas to get that password :D

Aww bad time. Oh well, we can’t satisfy the need of everyone.

Also thanks again GG for really being interactive with the community. It seems that a lot of Developers, Insomniac and MM come to mind, are using the Blog as a great way to interact with the community.

Weird timing. Those of us that, you know, have to work during the week have no way of attending a 10pst / 1est gaming session.

Thanks anyway… I guess.

+ K6U1R5D on May 4th, 2009 at 3:45 pm said:

those maps are nice! but please GG fix the death delay it makes the online very unfair especially when your opponent is using a shotgun. it just results in lucky last second headshots that really start to get annoying.and IMO new weapons would greatly be appreciated for the next DLC along with more great maps.

+ Shqype on May 4th, 2009 at 3:46 pm said:

This is good news. Good job promoting the new map pack by conditioning our ability to play with the devs on the purchase of Steel and Titanium ;)

I like the way you write, Seb (talking about “tea-bagging” and being “attention whores.” I like how you say it how you want and don’t alter the meaning of your words to be unnecessarily politically correct.

I voted for Killzone 2 in every category possible at the Golden Joysticks. Good luck!

    Haha, its actually heavily censored. The original was a heavily politicized rant on the state of the economy and the smell of cabbage. Riddled with nonsensical explanative and vitriol.

    Jeff cleaned it up a lot and made it into something half understandable and publishable without various religious and animal protection groups getting upset.

Well looks like I won’t joining you tomorrow, because:
1. I didn’t download the 2 maps to begin with. My money is real tight right now.
2. I got to work tomorrow, and I’m not using sick time just to play video game. Especially when my job looking dangerous to employees (lay offs).

+ Andorski on May 4th, 2009 at 4:18 pm said:

Perfect… my class schedule has me with Tuesdays and Thursdays off. I’ll definitely try to get in a game. Maybe I’ll annoy the Guerrilla devs with rocket boosters so they can get to fixing the Assault class. =P

Will there be moments like flying a helicopter full of my troops into a hot war zone and letting them off and as I try to take it down I am hit with an rpg causing a crash which I barely survive, now we are forced to engage in a full scale battle among the wreckage?

Wow, this really sounds like a fantastic time. I would absolutely love to play with GG. Unfortunately, I have to work. I still really appreciate the gesture, and I hope you guys do this again some time. I hope everyone who is able to participate has a great time. Thanks, Sony and Guerrilla Games, for organizing this – it really shows your commitment to your fans!
