Killzone 3 for PS3 reveal: Guerrilla Games interview

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on May 27, 2010 // Sr. Social Media Manager

What’s going to change in Killzone 3? The answer: a LOT.

Fresh off their European Killzone 3 media event, Guerrilla Games dropped into San Francisco to unveil Killzone 3 to the North American press for the first time last night, 3D TVs en tow.

I grabbed a few moments (well, 11 minutes, actually) with Guerrilla Games‘ Senior Producer Steven Ter Heide to talk jetpacks, fan requests, new Helghast foes, and how Killzone 3 will improve upon Killzone 2 in terms of graphics, controls, combat, and more.

Looks stunning. I absolutely loved the feeling of weight in KZ2′s controls, shame so many people want the game to be something it’s not mean to be (which is Modern Warfare 2)

Are all these huge games being announced before E3 so that they can’t get leaked like the last playstation event?

!!!!! God damn, I love the guys at GG.
Plus watching that TV in the background made my life! Did you see that boot and knife kill?! Really? SO BADASS.

I hope they show something at E3. :)

It’s not often a developer is so on top of what people find lacking in their games and adjusting so accordingly. Obviously they can’t do everything people want for Killzone 3, but already you can see some of the things they’ve improved in the footage playing in the background.

If you’ve played KZ2, you know that shooting more than a short burst generally makes your rifle bounce everywhere, even when using the scope. This already doesn’t seem to be the case in KZ3. From what I can see, you can fire a volley and not hit completely off target after the third shot, but still need to slightly adjust your aim while firing.

I also love the apparent variety in game play. I imagine the demo level the chose is one of the best to demonstrate that, but if they have some of the same variety throughout the game, that will be a great improvement over KZ2.

I hope the multiplayer team is working as hard as the single player crew.

Resistance 2 let me down but Killzone 2 brought me back up again. Even after playing such amazing titles like Bad Company 2, I still revert back to playing Killzone 2 from time to time. Amazing title and keep up the great work GG! Really looking forward to Killzone 3.

@Jeff Rubenstein

You forgot to add DEDICATED SERVERS to that “fan requests list”. It’s the most important thing regarding MP.

By the way, melee system looks awesome, thanks for the video.

Awesome awesome interview Jeff! your interviews are honest, thorough and hard hitting. Love it.
But please make sure that they get the point that we want split screen options. triple A shooters with split screen are way more popular than solo affairs. When friends and family come over we all wanna play with each other. WE NEED THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really want custom soundtracks for single player as an option at least. its stupid to play custom soundtracks while playing multi player.

Just got my platinum trophy in Killzone 2, absolutely loved the crap out of this game, I will cry wonderful tears of joy when I unwrap KZ3 and play the MP all night.

Hey Jeff,

Great interview, love the footage in the background. I can’t wait for a new trailer at E3.

Jeff got furry. Looks good. Anywho can’t wait to see what happens as the Helghast government dissolves into chaos.

+ Jeigh on May 27th, 2010 at 2:57 pm said:

I am SO glad to see that they’re pulling back on the profanity and taking a greater interest in the story-development side of things. KZ2 was a very action-oriented game and the gratuitous profanity definitely made it difficult to take the characters seriously, but the potential for an engaging tale was definitely there.

Thanks for passing on those recommendations, Jeff. Unfortunately, i truly doubt co-op is going to happen. My father and I enjoyed the hell out of playing Resistance together, but we haven’t found a single worthwhile co-op shooter since. Damn shame.

I’m sort of in-between on the controls. It’s quite jarring at first, but once you get the hang of them they aren’t terrible. All the same, I suppose it’s probably best that they’re adjusting them to remove that transition.

if they add 4 player offline split screen, 2 player online split screen along with a co-op survival mode and 2x the amount of weapons + 2-4 new classes then kz3 will have the best multiplayer out there no doubt

I also would love to see a special edition for the game :)

+ Jeigh on May 27th, 2010 at 3:01 pm said:

Oh, right, and I am so disappointed to hear that so few actually played through the campaign. It honestly makes me kind of ashamed, knowing that so many gamers are only interested in the mindless grind. I don’t think GG creating variety is going to fix that either.


82

+ ThreeLeggedFreak on May 27th, 2010 at 3:02 pm said:

Dear GG and SCE, please don’t show a lot of the SP footage, we knew and saw 80% of the Killzone 2 footage before the game even released!!!!!

Do like ND did with Uncharted 2 and show mostly multiplayer footage and demo.


83

+ E-two on May 27th, 2010 at 3:04 pm said:

Hopefully they will have some kind of cool special edition with like a little sniper action figure, if not im still preordering this game!

I want slightly faster startup on the multiplayer. I felt like it took a long time to get to medic, but once I did the game changed completely.

All Killzone 2 multiplayer needed was a party system!

I hope all the swearing is not gone because that would be lame, the swearing in Killzone 2 was excessive, it just needs to be cut down, not taken all out altogether.

I find it funny that SONY First Party Studios are competing with each others because Multiplatform developers don’t even challenge them.

Great interview. I’m excited for this as soon as I see the Special Edition at Gamestop then all $60 is going down for my pre-order. I’m glad you asked for fan questions but instead I’ll wite down my requests.

My requests:
-Online Split screen; It’s awesome to play with friends. Sometimes it gets them to buy the game when they have so much fun playing together with people he/she knows. It’s even better when two people can split screen together while still playing with other people. This could make couch vs couch games, imagine that!

-More classes; I would like to see different characteristics that really set Killzone 3 from other first-person shooters.
-Pyro
-Weapon: Flamethrower
-Primary: Any enemy who goes near him is set on fire
-Secondary: Can set up small flaming barricades
-Psychic
-Weapon: Basic assault rifles
-Primary: Can teleport by selecting the ability then
pressing jump
-Secondary: Slowing down enemies in a medium-large radius

+ loop-s-pool on May 27th, 2010 at 3:33 pm said:

…continued from last post

-Many more weapons. Since Killzone is set in the future, why not have futuristic weapons? Acid spitting guns, a tracking gun(like the Bullseye in Resistance 2), LAZERS, mini nukes, normal frags, and imploding grenades that creates a bloody mess.

-Melee weapons for each class. A metal pole for the normal soldier, spiky bat for the assault class, medical saw for the medic, and a switchblade for the sniper.

Looks good. Not much of a Killzone 2 fan but I liked the multiplayer. And I agree with the suggestion to keep Custom soundtracks! In single player would be nice too(For second playthroughs of course).

+ Shikoro on May 27th, 2010 at 3:56 pm said:

Damn! I see some CoD influence in that single player footage shown behind.
First, the player moves pretty fast, which wasn’t the case with KZ2 and there is less recoil on the gun. Let’s get this straight. I haven’t played KZ2, however that is what I saw in the trailers so I’d like it to be realistic as it was in Killzone 2. :D
