Killzone 3 Invades PlayStation Home Tomorrow with Rewards Galore

Locust_Star's Avatar + Posted by Locust_Star on Jan 26, 2011 // PlayStation Home Community Manager

As you’ve most likely heard, this Thursday, January 27th the Helghast forces will invade PlayStation Home for our special Killzone 3 “Total Game Integration” experience. Players that head to the Central Plaza will find the once bright and sunny locale transformed into the last remaining ISA stronghold on the war-torn planet Helghan.


Join your fellow soldiers and defend the Central Plaza against waves of Helghast infantry, airships, and ground vehicles by manning the Central Plaza Defender (a Killzone-themed first-person shooter) and mowing down the approaching enemy forces. Assist your friends by collecting and delivering upgrades such as ammunition, rocket launchers, explosives, repair kits, and first aid. Complete all the community challenges to unlock exclusive Home rewards. And if you can survive all three levels of relentless Helghast assault you’ll receive a voucher good for three Unlock Points that can be redeemed for new weapons and abilities in the Killzone 3 multiplayer.

Killzone 3 in HomeKillzone 3 in Home

That’s not all – Players that pre-order Killzone 3 through Amazon.com straight from the kiosk in Central Plaza will receive:

  • A limited edition Killzone 3 jetpack for your Home avatar, not available anywhere else
  • Unlock and Load Pack, instant access to an additional three Unlock Points to use on the weapon or ability of your choice in Killzone 3 multiplayer
  • Retro Map Pack, featuring two of the most popular maps from Killzone 2

This is an offer that Killzone and Home fans simply can’t afford to miss out on, so be sure to log-in to PlayStation Home this Thursday to play this exclusive game and take advantage of the special Killzone 3 pre-order offer. While you are there, check out the Sodium store in the PlayStation Home Mall for the new Lockwood clothing items and a variety of new costumes and active items (including new animated furniture items for your personal spaces and more active item pets).

See you in Home!

Are the Retro Map and Unlock & Load packs the same as the ones you can get from the 7-11/Slurpee promo?

    That’s a good question—that promotion is not a part of Home’s campaign, so I do not have the answers for you.

    The Killzone-themed game in Central Plaza will offer individual pieces of an ISA soldier outfit, awarded at various levels of success playing.

    The super-mega-awesome Helghast jetpack outfit is a special bonus for pre-ordering Killzone 3 in Home.

    From Lockwood this week, we have a bunch of new items for the ladies: over half a dozen kinds of knee socks! Female socks were being requested, and Lockwood has heard you!

    Home goes offline for it’s weekly maintenance world-wide at the same time, so it depends on where you are. It usually comes back online in North America in the early morning on Thursdays with all the new content.

A day after my birthday today, but I’ll take it as a quickly belated present. Something fun to do in Home! :D

Does the Amazon preorder take from the PSN Wallet or through Amazon’s checkout process? Just curious.

    It will not work through the PSN Wallet, so you will need one of the standard payment options available for Amazon.

    I estimate, depending on the powerful collective Home community’s ability to fend off the hordes, at least a few weeks. It’s going to get worse before it gets better. THIS IS WAR!

I hope its not to hard to win all three pieces of the Killzone outfit in the Plaza then. I know there is a Male one we seen pictures of it.

So is there a Female version as well?

    You may have to practice and attain higher success and ranking on the leaderboards. The cool thing is that when others are supporting (you will know what I am talking about tomorrow), it can help you defeat the incoming invasion. You also get some rewards for helping while not on the front lines.

    This week is almost all about Killzone, but Lockwood is bringing some new sock options for the ladies, and we’re bringing a few new items of note including: a Hippie outfit, an intriguing offering called the Futuristic D.E.M.O, Ultraviolet Hippie items, some cool new electric lamps (neon, glitter, lava—all are “active items”), an interesting zoo-inspired collection of furniture (including a Liger, a Chimera, and T-Rex!), and a few animated water fountains.

    Some other animal-inspired items are a collection of animated animals. Because they are “active items” they can add to your pet collection.

Already used credit on my pre-order through Amazon, so I can’t cancel it (I’m pretty sure the video game credit is one time use only). Sucks I can’t get the avatar anymore, though I doubt I’d ever use it since I never log in to Home.

The maps have to be different because the preorder offers are exclusive. Amazon accepts all major credit cards, and does not use the PSN Wallet system. You’re ordering the game via Amazon.com for $57.99 or $129.96 for CE.

GlassWalls, please answer my question :(

Does this pre-order offer also invole the Helghast Edition? The reason I ask is because I *had* my Helghast Edition pre-order on Amazon but I didn’t see the Unlock and Load pack that they offered with the Standard Edition. Any info on this situation? Thank you :)

    + GlassWalls on January 26th, 2011 at 2:55 pm said:

    You should be able to either purchase the normal version of the Helghast edition through Home, both offering the special jetpack outfit. So if the special edition of Killzone 3 is the one you seek, you should be able to gain it also through this offer.

Oh well, the new pets sound cute, especially the hamster. So Active Items mean I can take it everywhere like Chairman Meow? Or is it apartment only?
