Guerrilla Games has been hard at work making the most explosive shooter possible on the PlayStation 3 system. At E3, the development team gave you a glimpse of Killzone 3 in 3D where they walked away with Best Shooter, Best 3D graphics, and Best PS3 game to name a few of the E3 awards received.

Last month, we unveiled elements of Killzone 3’s stellar new multiplayer at gamescom and revealed new vehicles.

  • Best 3D graphics has to go to Motorstorm Apocalypse , it was the most impressive 3D demo at E3 in my opinion but Killzone 3 does look good too

  • to bad my ps3 is burned to death

  • No Limited/Collector’s edition?

    :(

  • I’m waiting on how the MP will play! Wish I was at PAX

  • I just hope there is an announcement for a public/close beta.

    I am a KZ2 hardcore-fan and KZ3 MP vids made me doubt about buying KZ3, need a beta to judge it for myself.

  • I didn’t like KZ2,so I might be skipping this one,aswell.

  • Can’t wait, can’t wait, can’t wait!!!!!!!!!!! Buying this as soon as it comes out. Can’t wait!!!!!!!!!! Hopefully there is a beta or something for Plus subscribers.

  • KZ3 is looking great! You guys are taking steps in the right direction!

    Question: Have Guerrilla mentioned anything about a co-op campaign at all? If this game has co-op I won’t need to buy another game until 2012.

  • I hope the campaign is better than Killzone 2’s. Don’t get me wrong; it wasn’t a bad game. It was beautiful and reasonably fun. I wish the guns had secondary fire, for instance. But really, the story was boring, cliche, uninteresting, etc. And stuff on the back of the box even promised “an environment that takes a toll” or something like that, and the game had none of it. That could have made things interesting, if Helghan had actually played a role in the story, had actually affected gameplay. That would have made Killzone 2’s campaign stand out from other shooters.

  • ThreeLeggedFreak

    Is this gonna have online/offline co op? Yes or no? Stop dodging the question!!!!

  • The new screenshots are rather tasty.

  • Will be buying day 1 just like killzone2

  • I know is going to be good i loved the 2nd one and will be taking off a week for this game again

  • jonathan_val

    any co-op???
    co-op campaign???

  • Good news, any kind of coop would be awesome too. i didnt like killzone 2 singleplayer that much it was nothing special in term of gameplay (thats my opinion btw), i hope this one is better. The multiplayer tho was incredible. Ill preorder it at the beginning of next year anyway.

  • Multiplayer beta or demo. Please? I would love both, but either or would be amazing as well.

  • Will there be more vehicles in KZ3s MP than the exo or jet packs? I’m desperately hopping the jeep will make it in the MP, as well as everyone on the forums :P

  • Dragonzblaze

    day 1 buy going to reserve ASAP

  • Does Killzone 3 have 4 player split-screen, offline and online?

  • YES!!! Woot Woot!

  • AngelMayLaugh

    Beeeeeetaaaaaa???

  • when is the beta site going to work? and please give us PS+ Members a close beta invite!!!

  • Sony…can you make sure that SOCOM 4 isn’t out around this time and is AT LEAST released a few months after KZ3…KTHXBYE

  • So excited now i just hope Resistance 3 release is spaced appropriately so i won’t have to pick between the two! Great news.

  • just dont pull a GT5 LOL;)
    Killzone 3 is going to deystroy Black ops!!!

  • So that means Resistance 3 has a chance of coming out on may or june!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Looks great, cant wait

  • I agree with Rike. I’m hoping I can spend time on one before so I can fully enjoy the other, and my guess is Killzone 3 will be coming first.

    So I’m hoping Resistance 3 comes out either right before Summer or sometime in the Fall of 2011. At least the pressure will be off Insomniac, because I’m really looking forward to R3, too.

    Oh, but I also hope Uncharted 3 doesn’t come out until November or something if it comes out 2011 and have Resistance 3 come out early fall. Just some tips :) And don’t worry about the next CoD, cause we all know it won’t do so well on PS3 due to the lack of love.

    We’ll be buying first party games, or games from EA and others who respect the Playstation fans.

  • What do I have to do/kill to get into this beta?

  • OMG the sequel to my favorite fps!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG! plz give beta to psn plus ! members!

  • All i ask for is the game to have status updates so you know what your friends are up to while playing like Modnation Racers.

  • I wish I could be at PAX! I’ve had Killzone 3 pre-ordered for months; can’t wait!

  • @people asking/wishing for split screen and

    co-op: do you want a bad-ass Killzone 3 game, or do you want…HALO? make up your mind, geeeez….

  • Battlepope190

    Is there a set Japanese release date yet?

  • February again eh? What was the 2nd games release date? Wasn’t it like 2/3/09 or something like that? No wait maybe it was 2/10/09 I think.

  • xIx_GamEOveR_xIx

    Looks promising,but 2 got alot of bad feedback as far as online is concerned,so not sure im gonna jump on this band-wagon just yet!Who knows single player may rock,but im an online freak so that has to be tight for me to jump on this :\

  • that-acmilan-guy

    when can we learn about more multiplayer features, like CO OP?

  • same day as my birthday :) thanks .. cant wait !

  • TheGuardianFID

    The Masterpiece returns to outdo itself once more!!! 8)

  • REGARDING CO-OP

    @ MarinoBrea (42)
    Yeah, Halo isn’t the only game to ever do co-op and not even my favorite by a long-shot. Ever heard of Resistance: Fall of Man?

    The more important point for all those wondering, c’mon, people, you should know this by now: If there’s no answer, you already know the answer. Developers don’t usually hold back on bragging rights.

    It’s understandable, given KZ3’s graphical quality, but disappointing, all the same. Don’t expect they’ll stray far beyond KZ2, vehicles being their “innovation” this time around. Center stage, once again, will be the idiocy that is multiplayer, a competition of pure repetition ad nauseam, minus the idiosyncratic minutia which keep the players blissfully unaware of the sense of deja vu they should be feeling.

    The only thing that will drag cooperative back into the limelight is if this competitiveness spills into the corporate side of things, with one shooter successfully implementing the feature, thus forcing others to respond in kind.

  • Looking good, keep it up.
