Killzone 2 Double XP Weekend starts now!

95 0

Hey All!

It has been a exciting week at Guerrilla Games with the release of the third DLC map pack “Napalm & Cordite”, the release of patch 1.29, the latest update to www.killzone.com, the announcement of the “Map Pack Bundle” and the opening of “Our World” an art exhibition here in the Netherlands based around the visually creative process of making the Killzone 2 universe and those that inhabit it.

Cordite

So to celebrate all this we have decided to give back to the folks who have supported us through thick and thin since the release of Killzone 2: You. The most attractive and charismatic fans any video-game can have. (Yes, flattery won’t get me anywhere) And what better way to thank ones loyal fans than with POINTS! This weekend from Friday at 17:30 GMT till Monday morning at 09:00, any games created will give extra XP points to let you guys rank up quicker and unlock those Badges and climb up the Leaderboard. That way you get more buck for your bang, more meat on your sandwich, more points for your prizes, more sauce on your fries, more … okay I think you get it.

A Win will earn you a 2.5 multiplier and a Loss will still grant you the normal multiplier for a Win: 1.5. This applies only to individual points, not Clan Valor and will be available in all regions during this time. We hope all those coming new to Killzone 2 and the veterans alike will take part in this celebration and make sure to keep an eye out for people with [GG] in front of their handles. We’ll be rocking the new DLC this weekend too.

  • You had to do the first Double Exp weekend when my PS3 is dead didn’t you? I know you did it on purpose! :p

    Good decision, I loved the DXP weekends in CoD4. Hope to see more of them.

  • I can’t rate posts for some reason. Weird…

    Anyway, cool to see it’s double XP weekend.

  • nice. this will finally get me back in the game. ive been wanting a reason but just couldnt play. i get burnt out on online games to quick.

  • Sweet. Killzone 2 is amazing!
    Seb and the rest of GG, keep up the great support, and also consider 2-player splitscreen for skimish with bots please!

    Jeff: can you ask about a Motorstorm 2 DLC bundle? Thanks

  • very cool

  • Hey Seb, love the new maps and weapons. If anyone out there has KZ2 but hasn’t gotten them do yourself a favour and pick them up. Better still get the bundle. I know I was a bit of a cynic when the game was being made but it’s rapidly turned into my favourite this gen so far.

  • Dubbedinenglish

    It is on like Donkey Kong…

  • KilledInSilence

    oh yea, sick

    I’m ready to pull off some headshots x]

  • Oh man, Im so sad. What a horrible weekend to have my PS3 be returning from repair ; ;.

    Are future double xp weekends going to happen?

  • Trying to emulate Call Of Duty’s wonderful and successful Multiplayer experience won’t fix Killzone’s broken Multiplayer…

  • Is this the last of the DLC?

  • Thanks for the double xp weekend but I’m still a little upset that those of us loyal players who bought the DLC as it came out are not offered a special price vs those who procrastinated and are now rewarded for it. Had you released a bundle further down the line I would not have a problem with it. New maps are less then stellar compared to the other DLC and the and inclusion of the bolt gun and flamethrower make it worse.

  • I would maybe buy the map packs but NO ONE cant help me fix the problem with the PSN Store.. i cant buy anything from the store anymore with my credit card and i cant even put my infos back.. and no im not gonna buy prepaid cards it was working before and i just want it to work again

    I LOVE KILLZONE BUT THIS MAP PACK SUCKS. THE LEVELS ARE SO BORING. IT SEEMS THAT ALL THE MAP PACKS WERE HALF AZZED. IN COD WE GET 4 MAPS FOR $10. KZ WE 2 MAPS 4 $6 AND THEY ARE JUST SO BASIC. I HAVENT SEEN A NEW MAP YET THAT MADE ME SAY “WOW”. I REMEMBER THEY SAID THAT THESE WERE THE BEST WORK THEYVE EVER DONE. BUT HALF OF THE MAPS THAT CAME WITH THE GAME BLOWS THE DLC AWAY.

  • bigdaddykraven

    Aw man, I would have gladly played this weekend (just finished the single player recently). I’ve got family coming in to visit for the weekend and won’t be able to play may games, at least not devoted multiplayer games.

    How about you guys do this at least one weekend every month? I love double XP weekends. Always wished Warhawk would have done it :(

  • TailsTheCat

    How about double the light source and real shadows weekend? Making the total of real light sources, one and the total of real shadows, one. Pathetic game by pathetic devs.

  • GG keeps on delivering.

    ohh… i love the new maps

    Thanks

    Sparda

  • THE_TERRORIZER

    Thanks guys.

    I recently lost all of my kz2 data to the YLOD on the ps3. I tried fixing because I had no warranty, but it died again.

    I could really use this, to catch back up with myself. Thanks dudes! I got a lot of pwning to do.

  • I am enjoying GG’s continued support of KZ2, keep it up.

  • @#16

    Are you insane? Seriously, Killzone 2 has the best lighting out of every recent game by far. Every freakin one of the 32 players online has 2 realtime lights on them, and a real time shadow casting light coming from the gun muzzle flashes. Seriously your pathetic and Killzone 2 is the best looking game this gen so far and GG deserves credit.

  • this is good

  • of course, more bad timing, as my PS3 is dead and sitting in the sony coffin as we speak. so sad…

  • @#2
    I cannot rate post neither.

  • MakulaTolkien

    Hellz Yeah!!! KZ2 all weekend, I’m going to play for at least 20 hours this weekend

  • MakulaTolkien

    @10 & 16: guys grow up! if you don’t like the game then fine! but no because of that you have to show your rage in public like crazy high school girls

  • @dotCody

    Only thing broken about Killzone is the whiners like you.

  • @TailsTheCat

    Your comment reeks of idiocy. Take that pathetic excuse for a flame somewhere else.

  • Great. If only I was in town in front of my PS3 to take advantage of said opportunity. I guess I’ll have to wait for a next time if there will be a next time.

  • Hey Seb, Thanks so much for this great game. So far is my favorite FPS game. I already played more than 200 hours online since the game was released.

    I love the new maps too.

    Thanks a lot

  • THE_TERRORIZER

    wait it starts at 5:30?
    ill be gone all day starting at 5:00!!
    NOOOOO

  • Nice… loved COD’s Double XP weekends, though since I’m already at General and got my Valor Grand Cross so I won’t really be reaping the benefits of this.

    Great work on Killzone 2, GG — thanks for a terrific game.

  • Thank You! I was hoping for this!

  • This is awesome, now maybe I can reach the final rank. It doesn’t seem so far away now lol

  • Fatninja-Kun

    C’mon guys! This is cool and all, but I just pullled an all-nighter last night with Killzone! Jeeze. Now I gotta do a whole weekend?

    Alright. I suppose thats more acceptable then it sounded in my head.

  • Nice, but I also pulled an all-nighter last night on this game. General here I come!

  • TheGuardianFID

    Awesome, just bought the new maps, count me in!!! :D

  • @14
    Lmao, dude cod4 charged $10 for 2 maps and one 1vs1 map which was useless and can I say only 1 map set was released the entire time. Also to show who is milking who, mw2 is releasing launch day map pack, I mean why aren’t they on the disk at purchase? lol.

    Now with the bundle KZ2 players get 6 maps for $11.99 all of which can host up to 32 players.

  • Awesome. Since it’s taken me about 200 hours to get 72,732 Points [I suck] if I play 50 some hours this weekend I’ll only need 65,915 points to reach the next level. Thanks for the HUGE gap on the level cap increase Guerilla [Sarcasm unintentional] – Peace or War? NM Later :-)
    PS: Maybe “MyKillzone” Iphone APP stats are wrong? :-s

  • Nice!!!
    This will go a long way to finally achieving that Commander in chief rank I’ve been slowly working on!

  • ThreeLeggedFreak

    Nice, thanks for this, will play some this week.

  • PERFECT TIMING!
    I get home from work a little after 5 so I will be rocking double XP for the whole weekend!
    THANKS GG!

  • Cool I love the new maps but it is pretty hard to get d new weapons cause evryone is after them but still the maps look beautiful thx GG

  • This is AWESOME! I thought I was going to do KOF12 a lot and a little KZ2 but I guess I have to do vice versa in this situation. Thanks a lot!!!!

  • I would be crying with happiness if I COULD actually play on my ps3 this weekend.

    Now I’m just crying. :'(

  • cool, ill start playing in a few minutes

  • @TailsTheCat

    You’re like one of 5 people who don’t like this game. We get it.

    Why post in EVERY Killzone thread if you don’t like the game?

    You’re not going to convince any of us. You’re just going to continue to look like a bigger and bigger loser.

  • when is there going to be a double XP weekend for Resistance 2? Need to re-build my co-op guys (had to replace the lazer and my levels didn’t get backed up) :(

  • Crap. This happens when my PS3 crashed. I would have loved to played this over the weekend.

  • Lies
    I’m not getting 1,5x multiplayer when my team is losing.
