Killzone 3 Story Trailer: Malcolm McDowell and Ray Winstone Lead the Helghast

Aryeh Loeb's Avatar Posted by Producer, Guerrilla Games

You’ve seen footage of Killzone 3’s jetpack-fueled aerial combat along the Frozen Shores of Helghan, and you’ve seen glimpses of the incredible showdown against the titanic MAWLR. Now, meet the key players of the Killzone 3 campaign mode in this explosive new story trailer!

Along with familiar faces from Killzone 2 such as Sev, Rico and Narville, you’ll find a couple of fresh ones: the resourceful female ISA member Jammer, as well as the hopeful heirs to Visari’s throne, Jorhan Stahl and Admiral Orlock. When the latter two lock horns, their actions will shape Helghan’s destiny – as well as the future of the ISA members still trapped there.

Since Brian Cox’s performance as Scolar Visari is a tough act to follow, Guerrilla signed on two veteran actors for the roles of his successors in the English version of Killzone 3: Malcolm McDowell, who plays the scheming Stahl Arms CEO, and Ray Winstone, who plays the gruff Helghast Admiral. With over 70 years of acting experience between them, McDowell and Winstone lend an intriguing dynamic to the power struggle that rages in parallel to the war on Helghan.

If there wasn’t a doubt that Killzone 3 would be taking up my realistic FPS time over CoD, Battlefield, Homefront, whatever it was this trailer to solidified it.

Here’s hoping there’s an option to turn off the motion sway in Killzone 3.

Killzone 2 was unplayable for me and that really sucks when you can’t return opened software.

I was sold as soon as I heard Malcolm McDowell’s evil tones.

Can’t wait for this, and LBP, and UC3, and the PSP and… my god, Sony are sending my finances into the abyss!

I only got one question, Killzone 3 Demo when???

Really looking forward to the Campaign to be honest, the cutscenes and dialogue are a major improvement from KZ2(judging by this trailer). Still gotta pre-order my Helghast Edition! >.<

You guys have been holding back, this game looks fantastic, I’m hoping the gameplay steps up as much as the story seems to have. Start rolling out the hype on this beast, any chance of a demo? The online beta was fantastic!

Good Choice with Malcom McDowell. The man may not like Sci-Fi, but he has a presence like no other. Almost seems fitting after his work on Wing Commander too. I was really worried how you guys would replace *SPOILER* DJANFIPVNWEPJ ajsdsjap;oj Visari after the way the last game ended as he had a real presence too.

I can’t wait to get this game and it will put anything else I’m doing on hold.

Brilliant! I love the power struggle storyline, and I love the actors that play the key roles even more.

Thank You Guerrilla!

This game looks incredible. I mean, after KZ2, I never had any doubts, but the emotional depth of this game just overtakes almost all other FPS games I have played. I will display the collectors edition with pride. Thanks, Guerilla!

Great trailer GG! Great soundtrack and great teaser content. I was not expecting to be hyped about the single player but after watching that I totally am.

I really like how the story adds depth and even more realism to what already looks amazing. Thank you Guerilla Games. Hope this game turns out to be worth the hype.

Holy-mother-of-Kratos…That was probably the best trailer I’ve seen in YEARS!

This just moved Killzone 3 to the TOP of my MUST get list!

This trailer is another great example to show how much video gaming has evolved. It feels like one of the best trailers I’ve seen in a while.
I knew I was going to buy Killzone 3, though I was a bit worried about the story and quality of the singleplayer experience. After seeing this trailer with this outstanding acting talents I’m really hyped and can’t wait to play this game.
Thank you for that awesome game Guerrilla

@78 Pretty sure that it is not CG for the most part

MrMondayNighttt said:

That Trailer Was simply EPIC.Hopefully Sony Will EFFECTIVELY market this game to the uninitiated consumers.

Please SONY, Get Subway advertisements,Buses,Billboards on display for this game and tell the people that the heavy aim control is fixed in the commercial!

Also if there is no Online Singleplayer CO-OP that would be a HUGE step BACK!

Rhez said:

January 6th, 10:53 am

Yep, looking good. I’m not a big fan of FPS but I really did enjoy Killzone2. The profanity was a little over done but otherwise a good game. And I enjoy sci-fi FPS than the modern warfare type of all the other FPS out there.

Santos21 said:

INCREDIBLE trailer.. Well done GG. Day one buy for me without a doubt. Cant wait to get my hands on this game.

I’m curious to see if there will be any “exclusive” shooter accessories for the PS Move to go with this epic release…?

Man, this looks so amazing! I can’t wait to play this! =D

It seems that Guerrilla has taken the story criticisms to heart, I know this is only a teaser, but the small amount shown in this gives me the sense that story will take a front seat this time around. I am even MORE excited for KZ3 now, which is no small feat. Kudos, awesome trailer :)

Korbei83 said:

That was intense.

I’m surprised and delighted that GG decided to cast Malcolm McDowell. He seemed like… a bit of a handful during his sessions recording for God of War III; Eccentricities and all.
