Introducing the Killzone 3 Retro Map Pack!

Aryeh Loeb's Avatar + Posted by Aryeh Loeb on Feb 02, 2011 // Producer, Guerrilla Games

Ever find yourself longing for the good old days of the year 2359, when the invasion of Helghan had just gotten underway and you were fighting a desperate bloody battle over every inch of its capital city? That’s perfectly understandable – why, we all do sometimes. But now there’s the Killzone 3 Retro Map Pack, which lets you relive those glorious multiplayer battles in the market streets and canals of Pyrrhus!

The Retro Map Pack can be purchased from the PlayStation Network, however as we announced back in October of last year, the Retro Map Pack is available for FREE to anyone who pre-orders either the Killzone 3 standard or Helghast Editions at participating retailers.

The Retro Map Pack consists of two classic Killzone 2 multiplayer maps, thoroughly updated and reworked for Killzone 3’s multiplayer mode. Check out the details below:

Salamun Market

Game Type: Warzone – 24 Players
Description:
One of the largest maps from Killzone 2, Salamun Market has been re-balanced for maximum Killzone 3 carnage. After the Helghast ambush an ISA convoy on its main road, the whole market becomes a Warzone. Nostalgia meets brand-new Exoskeleton combat on this classic multiplayer map!

Killzone 3 - Salamun Market 1 Killzone 3 - Salamun Market 2

Blood Gracht

Game Type: Guerrilla Warfare – 16 Players
Description:
Months after the nuclear blast that ruined most of the city, Blood Gracht is slowly being reclaimed by Helghan’s strange plant life. But when Guerrilla Warfare breaks out between ISA and Helghast troops, the canals once again run red with blood. The fan-favorite multiplayer map from Killzone 2 makes a triumphant return!

If you haven’t played Killzone 2 yet, or if an old war injury prevents you from remembering what Salamun Market and Blood Gracht originally looked like (again – we’ve all been there), a comparison video of the old and the new versions of the maps will be posted here in a few days.

For now, enjoy reminiscing while you look at the screenshots, and remember to pre-order Killzone 3 to get the Retro Map Pack for FREE.

@99
Yes but it will be free if you preorder the game before I assume it’s going to cost 10$ in PSN Store on separate purchase…

Devs: Is KZ2 bundle pack will going to cost less on KZ3 release date?
(I need that one I want platinum so bad!)

@ 59 – both amazon.ca and gamestop.ca list the retro map pack being part of their pre-order.

Been trying to get this answered in other Killzone related PS Blog post but with no luck, so lets try again…I asked before if we wound be able to map “Jump” to another button (like square or triangle) but after trying this new beta I can see we can’t. So that leaves the “Jump” button on X.

That’s fine if you have the PlayStation Move in your hand but when using the Sharpshooter your only access to the X button is on the navigation controller. To push the X button we will need to let go of the analog stick on the nav controller. How will the user be able to jump over obstacles?

Can I please get an answer? I’m assuming you guys know this is an issue and would rather not say anything then risk sales of the sharpshooter.

Come on Guerilla please why do you guys hate Visari Hammer that would be the perfect map to correlate with the Salamun Market Or Better Yet Helghan Industries

Wow, didn’t realise that Canadian pre-orders don’t include the retro map pack. I wonder why that is? Ah well, makes me even more glad for the $130 I’m about to shell out for the Helghast edition.
