Welcome Back to Killzone 3 with a Double XP Weekend!

Killzone 3
To celebrate the return of the PlayStation Network and welcome you back to Killzone 3’s online battlefield, we’ve got a Double XP Weekend lined up! Starting this Friday, May 20 at 17:00 PM UK time, and lasting until Monday, May 23 at 10:00 AM UK time, all XP you earn in Killzone 3’s multiplayer matches will be doubled.

The upcoming Double XP Weekend isn’t the only Killzone-related goodie in the pipeline. As you may know, Sony has revealed that Killzone: Liberation is part of its Welcome Back Program for PSN members, meaning you’ll be able to download the critically acclaimed PlayStation Portable shooter absolutely free of charge. And there’s even more… But we’ll announce that at a later date.

So stay tuned to Killzone.com, and remember to brush up your Killzone 3 multiplayer skills. This weekend, you’ll have a chance to catch up on 3 weeks’ worth of rank progression!

P.S.: During the Double XP Weekend, the Score Screen will display the message “Fast Starter Bonus” instead of “Bonus Points” – this is a string error that will be fixed in future Bonus XP events.

The way this article is written may leave people not realizing that 1700 GMT (5:00PM UK time) means that it has been underway for over 2 hours now. The article is written in a way that makes it sound as if it is upcoming, not already in effect

XAlianKx –

Worst? No way, not even close. It needs better support though – it still has the flikering screen which they said they had addressed since the beta – WRONG. Also, the whole deal about the SMG having like the same stopping power as the LMG from twice as far away is totally off. And lastly, any time a person picks up the “battery” in the MAWLR level, they don’t die until AFTER the game registers that they have picked it up – so no matter how many times you light some guy up before they pick it up and deliver it to the core, they always deliver it first and THEN they die afterwards once it has been registered. It really ticks me off because if the battery is sitting their in your own base, and the ISA have to come and get it to deliver it, it should be impossible. But not how they have it set up…

Can we say “Hell to the mother Yeah!!!”

I LOVE Killzone3!
It has the BEST online Multiplayer this gen. Bar none. Not two matches are ever the same. Its tactical. Its gritty. Its raw! Its viscious! I’m about to jump online right now for some double xp. I won’t be able to play at all tomorrow until the evening time as well as for sunday, but I can’t wait to max out! I’m currently a level 36.

Thank you Guerilla Games. Can’t wait to download Killzone: Liberation and see what the surprise is going to be. Maybe adding 2 player split-screen for the online portion? Hey, a man can dream right?

Thanks again :D

@36 jester860 Try another disc, I had the same problem when I first got the game. The game wouldn’t read, and when it finally would it would freeze in the exact same spot. I took it back the next day and got a different disc, after that I’ve had no problems.

Bonus xp should be staggered between titles.

Black ops, socom, killzone 3.. I’m not going to be able to take advantage of all the titles.. i’m picking socom. But i’d jump on killzone 3 if i had the chance, which i don’t cause I’ll be playing socom. I dont play black ops but I would assume anyone with all three titles would be scratching their heads on what title to play.

I was originally going to play killzone 3 this weekend, but now i hear that socom is doing it too so i’ll stick with that. sorry GG, i’m just more of a socom kind of player. But i was really looking forward to playing killzone 3 with the extra xp.

This reminds me of how poorly sony chooses its release dates for titles all on the same day/week.

black ops one weekend, killzone 3 one weekend, socom another etc.. everyone gets to play them all.

Your fragmenting your playstation base. One would think sony’s first parties would communicate amongst each other to decide how to not step on each others toes.
