Helghast Invade San Francisco

Alex Armour's Avatar Posted by

Friday, Feb. 27th, 2009…to us it marked the official launch of our exclusive first-person shooter Killzone 2, and the date the Helghast invaded many living rooms across the country. For some others, it marked the date Killzone 2 literally invaded, with a personal visit from a Helghast soldier to some of the gaming media in San Francisco.

Cameras picked up a rare peace offering trip where the Helghast put aside their differences with the human race and dropped off cupcakes with their likeness emblazoned on each treat. Of course, the Helghast couldn’t pass up the opportunity to scare a few folks at IGN‘s offices, but good times were had by all.

Check out the video below to see the sensitive side of our Helghast friend before he’s back to his old ways of shooting people down.

I also love how you still put “Rated M for mature. 17 +. Blood and Gore. Intense Violence. Strong Language.” at the beginning. XD

I love that the video of a guy handing out cupcakes has to start with the “M” for blood & gore disclaimer.

Don’t soften the game up. Keep it brutal, as it is.

Killzone 2 owns all other FPS games. That video was funny especially when the Helghast soldier scared the crap out of that guy.

TheTwelve said:

March 4th, 7:18 am

Haha. I have a hard time believing that he walked too far down the streets of San Fran with that gun in his hand. :)


jazzyrider said:

March 4th, 7:19 am

Can you pls bring a cupcake to Seattle?

BTW, I love the mask & suit! Great idea for halloween!

TheTwelve said:

March 4th, 7:20 am

I also imagine that that helmet got REALLY hot, especially with those huge light-bulbs for eyes heating the insides up. :)

All the promotional stuff that sony and gurilla games did for killzone 2 was awesome. I hope other publishers follow and do some interesting things like this.

Netweb said:

Onna76_NL said:

jbullfrog23 said:

Offtopic: Is it true? The PSP might get a download service for classic PS games and even with classic games from other Platforms? If so… totally rocks!!

Jeigh said:

Pure awesome. That’d make an awesome skit too- a supposedly evil trooper acting silly. I’m thinking sort of like what Family Guy did with the Storm Troopers from Star Wars.

I just received my preorder bonus from today, so Home’s going to be invaded too tonight. :D

jedi_webslinger said:

March 4th, 7:57 am

Helghast+Snake=Awesome! I love movies like this.

The bulk of the games media is located in the bay area and New York and the video is titled Helghast meets the media.

mikedo2007 said:

March 4th, 8:09 am

I wonder if they will pull something like this in Japan. The problem will be that they’ll think it’s related to Jin-Roh or something out Kenberos Panzer series.

armyboy915 said:

March 4th, 8:09 am

Its funny how some creepy looking soldier from killzone is handing out cupcakes and scaring people.

armyboy915 said:

March 4th, 8:10 am

PS: Do you know where I can get one of those suits.

Rhez said:

depward said:

isolatebody said:

Okay, I want that job and the costume.

Letters2Kay said:

March 4th, 8:35 am

Amazon just emailed me my Home costume code, so I get to get my Helgahst on today, too. Now if only the $%&#@! game would show up, already!!! :(

“Billing information recieved.”

Gee, thanks.
