Killzone 3 – Single Player Demo Coming in February

David Bull's Avatar + Posted by David Bull on Jan 26, 2011 // Associate Product Manager, SCEA

Killzone 3. The Jetpacks. The Brutal Melee. The PlayStation Move. The 3D!

Ever wanted to get your hands on the action? Killzone 3 may not be out until 02.22.11, but we’re giving you a chance to hop into the “Icy Incursion” level that takes place halfway through the campaign.

Strap on that jetpack and take flight through the arctic environments of Helghan.

There will be two separate downloads available from the PlayStation Store: one in 2D and one in 3D. Both versions will take place on the “Icy Incursion” level. Don’t worry – downloading the 3D version and playing it on your 2D TV won’t break anything … you’ll just see a message saying “No 3D TV detected.” The 2D version has splitscreen coop as well, a feature not available in the 3D demo.

All PlayStation Plus subscribers who have automatic downloads enabled will receive the 2D single player demo of Guerrilla Games’ upcoming blockbuster. As a reminder, PlayStation Plus subscribers can turn on the Automatic Download feature under “System Settings” on the XMB. This feature will update your PS3 with firmware updates, patches to recently played games and other select videos or game demos.

These demos will be PlayStation Move enabled, giving gamers a chance to experience Killzone 3 with the most immersive controls. When you get your hands on the demo, be sure to try out one of my favorite new mechanics, the Brutal Melee attacks! Get close to your enemy and hit the melee button (or thrust your PlayStation Move motion controller at the screen).

The aiming and movement mechanics have been tightened since Killzone 2. Play around with it and let us know what you think!

Stay tuned to the blog as we give out more details on the upcoming multiplayer Open Beta. While you wait, bone up with this full list of weapons to get a day-one edge.

Yes! This is another piece of awesome news. I’m so looking forward to this. Doesn’t change that I’m already buying this game, it’s just nice to have a taste of Killzone 3 before it releases.

@ 52:
Well since you were never going to play the game anyway, I don’t think they really care about whether or not you buy it. And sorry if my assumption was wrong, your silly message gave the impression that you don’t want to spend 60 dollars on a game, but a case instead.

Killzone 2 introduced us the most unique and best online experience ever in a FPS..even before Cod and other FPS…Let’s hope Killzone 3 brings even more…
Hopefully..GAme of the Year!

so excited for killzone 3.

out of curiosity, has sony or guerrilla games considered a killzone movie?

A lot of the visuals in the movie “The Mutant Chronicles” reminded me of killzone series.

My b-day is on 2/22 so I couldn’t ask for a better present! Just got the PS Move as well so it’s going to be on and crackin’!

I even asked for a week’s vacation from work to enjoy this. Hope it’s worth the wait!!

This is so awesome. Feels good to be a Playstation Plus member. Now I can pretty much play most of the game before buying it.

I seriously want to know and I’m not getting an answer. I really want to play this game with my bro via Split Screen in 3D… are we only going to be able to do that in 2D?

+ pickupdoctor on January 26th, 2011 at 12:21 pm said:

Oh yeah, I can’t wait to get this on Feb. 8th. I am getting 3D version because I know it is going to be fantastic.

@Moneygoo97

Right here! I hop KZ3 looks great in 3D…I hate obstructions in my face but since ‘Santa Fiancee’ hooked me up with a 3D TV ill give it a go. The Move is awesome so I hope for the same.

+ ballagh on January 26th, 2011 at 2:08 pm said:

3D with the Sharpshooter. Fricking Sweet!!!! cant wait for the helghast edition to arrive at midnight :) thanks for the early demos for us plus members. any chance of getting both versions to DL early instead of just the 2D? Single player online COOP?

Thanks

Oh yeah….any chance of a early 3D trailer?

+ Basindo on January 26th, 2011 at 2:37 pm said:

Can you guys please also make the move button a melee button besides thrusting since it doesn’t do anything? Or at least an option in controls to switch from thrusting to move button? I have played MAG and Modern Combat: Domination (The only 2 fps games I think that have move right now), and it is really annoying to thrust the controller. Maybe if I stand up it’ll feel better but I hate thrusting at least sitting down. It makes my arm uncomfortable and then I am moving out of place. PLEASE make a button for thrusting at least in the singleplayer version

KILLZONE 3 Beta and demo? What more could I ask for? Move support and CO-OP?! Aw, you didn’t have too…

So hyped. Demo and beta will keep me occupied for a while, but day one purchase. Definitely.

I would have been happy with just the multiplayer demo but this is even better news! Love you Sony!

Simply amazing. The MP Beta and now a 2D/3D SP demo. Killzone 3 is going to kick ass!

+ SeanScythe on January 27th, 2011 at 7:06 am said:

Wait quick question, the FULL version of the game will have Online Co-op for the Single player right? It’s not just restricted to splitscreen is it? Please for the love of God tell me it has Online CO-OP. This has been said to be in the game since we found out it had Co-op, if it’s not I can tell you now we are not going to be happy.


82

+ StrykerIsland on January 27th, 2011 at 8:18 am said:

I think it’s ridiculous that you’ve added split-screen coop, and ignored online coop.

I’m a married man, 34 years old with two kids and a full-time job. My gaming is done at night after my wife and kids have gone to bed, like most adults these days I would assume.

It’s not feasible to have someone over to my house to play the game with me, online is really my only option. Very disappointing news indeed.

Looking forward to it.

Ok, it is the 8th. Where is the demo. I checked for it at about 3am when I got home from work, and again when I got up about 8am. I can’t seem to find it. Or are they going to release it later this afternoon? I was hoping to get a try at it before I left for work.

Automatic download doesn’t work in the building I’m currently living in, since I have to wait a bit for it to recognize I’m allowed to connect or else I’ll just get a DNS error. Automatic download just quits when this happens, so no download for me.

Any chance there’s a different way PS+ users could get a hold of this other than auto download? Just seems weird for it not to be in the store as well.


88

+ falconsfan07 on February 8th, 2011 at 9:30 am said:

I thought the demo was coming out today for PS+ members. Had automatic download turned on but didn’t get the demo. Been waiting all morning for it and I’m still waiting.


89

+ catklmtl4e on February 15th, 2011 at 11:38 am said:

Ok I thought the demo for non PS+ members would be out today. Here it is 2:30pm and it still is not. Why? And yes I live in North America and not Europe.

Since when does the store update at 2:30 pm ?
