Killzone HD Coming to PSN October 23rd, Trophy List Revealed

Killzone HD on PS3

Announced last week, the Killzone Trilogy box set combines Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 with a high-definition PS3 remaster of the original Killzone. Today we take a closer look at Killzone HD, and the challenging new trophy set that comes with it.

Originally released for PlayStation 2 in 2004, Killzone tells the story of Jan Templar, an ISA Captain whose home planet comes under attack from a Helghast invasion army. Together with a hot-headed sergeant named Rico, a deadly Shadow Marshal known as Luger, and the half-human, half-Helghast spy Hakha, Templar must attempt to reactivate the Orbital Defense Platform and drive the invading forces from his planet Vekta.

This rip-roaring introduction to the Killzone universe has been remastered in HD for inclusion with the Killzone Trilogy bundle. Featuring a single-player campaign with four playable characters and an offline multiplayer mode against AI opponents, Killzone HD has received a thorough audiovisual overhaul: the game boasts 720p graphics at a steady 30fps, with MSAA filtering, sharper textures and higher quality sound effects. But don’t take our word for it – check out these crisp HD screenshots:

    Correct. We have adapted and tweaked the DualShock controls so they’re more in line with recent Killzone titles, however.

    Sensitivity, deadzone etc. on DualShock3 all differ quite a bit from the old PlayStation controllers, so we’ve adapted them accordingly. In addition, the button layout is now more in line with what you’d expect from recent Killzone titles.

Will Killzone HD be available as a standalone game you can download off PSN?

As it stand I’ve got 2 copies of KZ3 as Fry’s Electronics was practically trying to get rid of both Socom 4 and KZ3 by bundling it with new PS3′s.

And about the other Killzones? Any possibility? I’m married, remote play is the heaven for me.

Thanks for letting us know we can download Killzone HD off PSN without having to buy the collection. And at a great price too, thanks. Cant wait for more news on Killzone Mercenary’s for PS Vita.

To anyone who hasn’t played any Killzone games, I highly recommend the Killzone Trilogy Collection, great games.

+ FORMIK on September 13th, 2012 at 7:31 am said:

I’m glad to hear it! Part of the reason I chose the Resistance franchise (other than for its alternate history) was because I never played the first Killzone. With the Killzone trilogy, I can play from the beginning.

Nevermind some of the cynical comments above which are typical these days. Be happy with what you have people, and not unhappy about what you don’t have.

Has the sniper rifle been changed, or the controls for the sniper rifles zoom been changed or improved?

Everything about this seems pretty spot-on. I’m amazed at how quickly this HD remaster was turned around, too. May we ask who handled the port?

Can we expect to see L1 used to aim, or has the game not been altered to that extent?

I already have the KZ2 and KZ3 game discs, but I do find the KZ HD trilogy interesting. How many game discs going to be included the KZ HD trilogy? I never tried KZ1 for ps2 yet before, but I’m willing to try the KZ1 game for PS3 on blu-ray disc.

+ ElektroDragon on September 13th, 2012 at 8:32 am said:

Wait… you couldn’t do 60FPS at 720p on an old PS2 remaster? Why? I’m buying it anyway, but come on!

My god, is Wipeout HD the only game on the PS3 that can do 1080p at 60FPS? (not to mention in stunning 3D)

How is it that Wipeout HD can do it and yet every other PS3 game (even remasters) seem locked at 720p and 30FPS?!

And yet Sony laid off the exact staff that was able to pull off this astounding feat on the PS3?

DOES NOT COMPUTE!

Im excited cause Killzone is my favorite PS Exclusive. It also comes out on my B-Day Oct.23! I already have Killzone(ps2 disc), Killzone 2(disc), and Killzone 3( 2 copies, and digital version), all the themes, most of the Avatars, and posters. Im getting this collection for my B-Day, and also bought a PS Vita for Killzone. Hope Killzone 4 launches for PS4. Could you guys go back to Killzone 2 style for KZ4 because that game was perfect.

First and foremost, I have to say I am INCREDIBLY excited for this HD remake. I never played the first Killzone, but I absolutely loved 2 and 3. Thank you for making this happen, as I have been dreaming of it one day being released on PS3 with a nice HD sheen for years. So psyched!

(Continued in next post, was too long for one.)

+ KeefRiffards on September 13th, 2012 at 8:49 am said:

Victor, with that said though, I do have to bring something up…you responded above saying that there are no plans for any Killzone titles to support remote play. I find it ludicrous that Sony pumped up anticipation for the Vita by actually showing Killzone 3 being played on it, and saying that it will be able to play PS3 games( all while the KZ3 gameplay was shown being played on the Vita) via Remote Play. While I realize that this is more a deceptive move on Sony’s part, I really can’t understand why Guerrilla Games, who are one of the brightest and creative devs in the biz, would allow KZ3 footage to be shown as an example of remote play, at a convention none the less. If there were no plans to support Remote Play with the Killzone franchise, couldn’t your team have been honest with us from the get go? I feel cheated, in a way. Not only does my Vita not have working Remote Play, but the ONE PS3 game I was psyched to play on it (because it WAS ADVERTISED) I will not be able to play anymore…..sigh….I love my Vita, and support PS3, but this is a bummer. Any response would be appreciated and will go a long way in preserving integrity, at least in my eyes. I am sure I am not the only one disappointed about this.

+ FoomMan on September 13th, 2012 at 9:09 am said:

Pain, why would they suddenly add third person view? It’s never been an option in Killzone 1, 2, or 3 and would be a bit of a massive undertaking- it’d require a new game, basically.

+ Schumi_77 on September 13th, 2012 at 9:15 am said:

and it is a FPS (First Person Shooter), so no reason to.

But I’m disappointed not to see 3D added to at least KillZone HD like every good HD remasterisation.
Will keep my official PS2 version and keep playing it on PC (all PS2 HD version so far were uglier than PC emulation so I doubt it is likely to change now).

And without move support for neither KZ HD nor KZ2, it will be definitely without me (I need to sell my Sharp Shooter … it only eat dust for a several month now).

upgrade your HDD, it’s easy and cheap. i did both of my ps3s years ago to 500 GBs, for $100. i’m sure it’s cheaper now or larger sizes.

+ MP_is_for_Chumps on September 13th, 2012 at 9:44 am said:

@ 24 ElektroDragon

You are expecting too much, due to not knowing that Wipeout HD is actually little more than a glorified HD PSP remaster, – a port of Wipeout Pure & Pulse with some extras.

No PS2 HD remake does 1080p @ 60fps because the very best PS2 games when up-sized for PS2 are still pretty challenging for PS3, technically, even by toady’s standards.

If you were taking notes you’d see that the only games that ever do true Full HD @ 60fps on PS3 are simple PSP ports (GoW Origins collection, Wipeout HD) or even more basic PSN-only & retro games.
