Greetings Mercenaries. Starting today we’re holding a contest for new bot names for our Botzone Soldier Training database. You can have your bot name etched in history as a bot for future soldiers to train from. If you believe you have what it takes to stealthily defeat your enemy or lead your squad to victory in online warfare, then we want to hear from you!
A few weeks ago we added two classic Killzone multiplayer maps to Killzone Mercenary. Since then we’ve been working on adding more to Killzone Mercenary, and finally it’s here on PS Vita. We’re very pleased to announce the release of our latest update for Killzone Mercenary, delivering an offline multiplayer experience to our 8 maps.
Amongst all the excitement for the launch of PS4 and, of course, Killzone Shadowfall, here at Guerrilla Cambridge we’ve still been busily working away on Killzone Mercenary. We’re now very pleased to announce that there will be a number of updates coming over the next few months
The main focus for the second patch has been in targeting some of the connectivity issues that have been experienced over the last month. We’re hoping that many of you who were previously unable to connect into the community will now be able to enjoy Killzone: Mercenary to its fullest.
A week after Killzone Mercenary’s launch, one of the great things to see is how so many different people play the game in so many different ways. Looking at the stats I can see that the M82 and the silenced STA-52SE are the weapons of choice for a lot of people, each racking up 5M+ kills already, but digging deeper it’s great to see that some of the other weapons are being wielded very effectively.
PS Vita Summer Select wraps up this week with Dragon Fantasy Book II, while also bringing the heat with Killzone: Mercenary. You’ll also find the acclaimed Puppeteer on sale for PS3, along with new bundles for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty Black Ops. For PS Plus members, you’ll find Galaga Legions DX free this week, along with some new discounts!
Players who purchase Killzone Mercenary on PlayStation Store will receive the “Blackjack’s Briefcase” pre-order bonus, which includes an in-game cash bonus and 48 hours of Double XP. (Please note that you must be online for the Double XP bonus to count.) Next Tuesday, September 17th, the offer goes away and users who purchase on PSN will only get the game. If you’re keen to go digital, take advantage before it’s too late!
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn hits the PlayStation Store this week alongside Lost Planet 3, Hatsune Miku Project Diva F and Killer is Dead.
