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.

As someone who was disspointed by the story in Killzone 2, all I can say is:


That was all necessary.

THE-D1RTY-77 said:

January 6th, 12:21 pm

3 things…
1.the conflict of the throne is our window of opportunity obviously
2.did they kidnap altair or ezio from the past and turn him into helghast? lol
3. only a month and a half ’till launch…and jammer looked hot even though it was only a second if that was indeed her?

Excellent trailer for an excellent game.


Seriously should have released this in late spring/early summer, when the release schedule drys up. Waaaaay too many other top notch games coming out in the next couple of months. I’m afraid this is going to be a little lost under all the other titles. Should have grabbed a nice slow spot like May/June when kids are getting out of school and nothing else is being released.

Why is the G Man in Killzone now?

WOW. I was looking forward to KZ3 this feb but that trailer had more of an impact than any of the gameplay trailers to date. This has solidified my purchase. Fantastic job Guerrilla Games…. fantastic job.

This looks so amazing guys! I’ve had mine pre-ordered since October! I loved KZ2, and this looks even better. I seriously can’t wait… *gets in Delorean*

I have one small request though. Could you guys do a remake of KZ1 for the PS3?

Vorlord said:

January 6th, 12:39 pm

I just got goosebumps by watching this! It’s gonna be epic!!!


dime5150 said:

Looks like Billy Bob Thornton.

Vorlord said:

January 6th, 12:47 pm

Also, can’t believe you got Malcolm to do a voice acting in another PS3 game.

First Clockwork, then Holloween 1 & 2, then God Of War 3…and now Killzone!!

This is how we know PS3 is up the charts and Killzone is to thank here!

Shahrukahn said:

I just hope I get my platinum on this game without breaking as many controllers as I did on KZ2. Radec on the hardest difficulty still gives me nightmares.

I can’t wait. Now I’m pre-ordering the Helghast edition of Killzone 3!

Ok that Music would have been awesome in the Inception Trailer just saying. Ok other than the music this looks awesome well I should say it’s doesn’t look awesome it looks epic. XD

LordRaoh said:

check this gif out

based on the punch coming from the right hand.. the face should be going in the opposite direction from the impact not toward us..

TutMup11 said:

January 6th, 1:33 pm

I believe this game will be fantastic. the controls were a bit tough to get used to in KZone 2 so hope to see some improvements. and especially in the chaotic online modes. clean it up and it’s got potential. cool to see some new melee style combat options

Rimkus said:

January 6th, 1:33 pm


Dude, he isn’t punching, it is a rifle butt to the head. It makes sense at that angle.

ambsnake said:

January 6th, 1:37 pm

wow, looks amazing- more exited for it then before.

January 6th, 1:46 pm

Amazing! Unbelievable! Terrific! non-stop wantedable!(add this word to dictionary), reviving dead even to play this! Immortal franchise! which shows that people who work at this game have not healthy imagination but I love you guys! I bid KZ4 will be released! There no question. The only matter of WHEN?!

The MAAN (Married And Always Nagged) Clan will definitely be supporting Killzone 3. We enjoy shooters and the KZ3 beta showed that GG has learned from some of the mistakes that it made with KZ2.

When can I download this trailer to my PS3?

This game looks amazing, if the actual game holds up to the trailers looks like I’ll be getting this one too. Killzone has always had a decent storyline but it looks like this one could take the cake.
