133 0

You’ve waited patiently for 2 years, but now the time has come to return to Helghan along with Sev, Rico, Narville and the rest of the surviving ISA. Killzone 3 has officially gone gold, and will be coming to stores on February 22nd, 2011.

Picking up right where Killzone 2 left off, you return to the role of ISA Sgt. “Sev” Sevchenko. Beaten, bloody but not broken you and your fellow ISA veterans find yourself outnumbered and isolated following the events of Killzone 2. New enemies, new environments and new threats wait for you as the story for survival unfolds.

Add in 3D support including online, split-screen co-op campaign, and full PlayStation Move support including the new sharp shooter peripheral and it’s more to do than you can shake a stick at.

We’ve got two flavors of Killzone 3 for you on Feb 22nd. The standard edition and the hardcore Helghast Edition. The Helghast Edition includes the uber-cool Cloaking Helghast Marksman figure and the Helghast Helmet replica. It’s also replete with a super voucher including access to the Killzone 3 Soundtrack, dynamic theme, Retro Map Pack, and the whole slew of pre-order unlocks.

Killzone 3 Helghast Edition

Speaking of pre-order unlocks, check them out in detail below, and find us online on February 22nd!

Looking forward to the mayhem and slaughter online, see you on 02.22.11 and while you wait, make sure to check out the awesomeness of the Killzone 3 Justice trailer again!

  • @47, plus adding Malcolm Mcdowell doesnt hurt!

    Looks great, I already have the Helghast version pre ordered and paid for fully, now we play the waiting game…

  • Lenniefinch

    advice to those new to the playstation move, get a bundle with a game worth playing. (sports champions got boring after a while) the move does also have buttons so for fps it will work..its not a kinect for the [DELETED]

  • Arcadian_Rebel

    I pre-ordered this! :)

  • Will the Helgast Edition be available for the UK.

  • looking forward to it

  • Can you guys do split screen in 3D?

  • I’ll pay double for it if they kill Rico.

  • Charles_Surge

    Thanks for the revised Helgast Edition promo image, I’m more inclined than before to go with the Helgast Edition.

  • So…. how exactly can a game that hasn’t been released yet go gold? Preorders?

  • Going gold just mean that development is finished and the game has been sent to manufacturing to be produced. It doesn’t have anything to do with sales quantity like it does in the music industry.

  • I shall be there, day one!

  • Am I the only one who things there are way too many things on the box and convolutes the cover?

    Also WTH! North American gamers ask for the steelbook case over and over again cause you gave europe a 100 page artbook and steelbook case and instead you give us the *bleeping* 100 page artbook instead. F you SCEA. Don’t give the fans what they want. That is seriously the most bull$h!t move I have seen from Sony this gen.

  • Awesome, but please, please fire your graphic designers! 9 Logos?!

  • I’m very happy there’s an online co-op campaign. I already have the Helghast Edition pre-ordered so I can’t wait to continue the fight.

  • Also, I’d like to add that the Helghast helmet looks way cooler than the Master Chief helmet that came with Halo 3, and for a cheaper price too.

  • Will we get a pre-launch demo?

  • I have the Helghast edition pre-ordered and can’t wait for this! It would be great if people that buy the Helghast edition also got a Killzone 3/Helghast avatar and dynamic theme (please) from the Playstation Network.

  • So why don’t we get a steelbook case with the Helghast Edition like the Europeans do?

    I swear, all SCEA “Collector’s Editions” don’t seem so collectible when we get a plain, normal copy of the actual game.

  • And to those complaining about the logos, at least Guerrilla Games finally get their logo on the front! They got the shaft with Killzone 2, just like Evolution Studios are getting the shaft with MotorStorm: Apocalypse. In fact, I think this is the first time since LBP where an SCEE studio is getting their proper due in an SCEA territory. Both KZ2 and MS: PR had the developers’ logos hidden somewhere on the back of the case.

    As for the front, the only logo I can’t stand is the giant Move logo. The way SCEE handles it is much better.

  • Question:

    What are the video outputs for the game? 1080p?

  • Is there Online co-op? I know there is Offline but what about Online? Thank you

  • Day 1 Helghast Edition purchase for me.

    I cant wait. Surely to be one of, if not THE, best FPS this year. Great job GG and great year for SCE and gamers alike!

  • footballrule

    So can’t wait for this game! It’s gonna be one of the hottest FPS of 2011! :)

  • Questions:

    How big is the install?

    What exactly is included in the Super Voucher?

    Can we get a image of the back cover from both versions?

  • I’ll be getting this! I can’t decide if I should pre-order the regular version or collector’s edition or if I should just wait until they go down in price.

  • Duh! Just noticed the list for the super voucher.

  • ThreeLeggedFreak

    I got 100% of the trophies on Killzone 2, finished Killzone 1 in the hardest setting and finished Killzone Liberation on the PSP, but I will pass on Killzone 3. No online co op in 2011 is borderline stupid.

  • US Helghast Edition Pre-ordered for Me, and The Mrs. – Can’t wait! Is the Sharp Shooter out already?

  • It would be great if the North American market also received the SteelBook in the Helghast Edition. A LOT of Killzone vets would truly appreciate this, especially since the European market has two chances to get this, while we don’t even get a chance. There’s still a little time (I think), so please SCEA/GG, highly consider giving the North American market the SteelBook case in the Helghast Edition.

    Is there offline split-screen multi-player (not co-op)? This was the only disappointment I had with Killzone 2 since Killzone 1 had it and 2 didn’t. Whenever I had friends over, I would want to play them in Killzone 2, especially since they didn’t have a PS3 (at the time and one of them still doesn’t), but we couldn’t. You’re able to do split-screen co-op, I don’t see why it would be hard to do split-screen multi-player. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad co-op has been added (would be even greater if it could be done online as well, future update perhaps?), but offline split-screen multi-player would be even better IMO. If it’s not implemented with the release, can it please be added in a future update?

  • @77, I agree to an extent. Yes, there should be online co-op but it’s borderline stupid to pass up such a great game as this, especially since you’ve gotten 100% trophies on Killzone 2 (I have to btw), and beat Killzone 1 and Liberation.

  • Sony will killzone 3 have online co op not just offline in campaign

  • Splitscreen co-op campaign, better/smoother aiming, I’m sold, the “realistic” heavy aiming in KZ2 annoyed me, and a co-op campaign is what me and my friends need: a new 2-player game.

    This is looking to be my new favourite FPS, I hope it won’t disappoint me

  • Why would coop only be split screen?

  • TheGuardianFID

    Got my Helghast Edition pre-ordered, I can’t wait, you rock GG!!! 8)

  • Are the offers available at the Canadian retailers (bestbuy.ca, amazon.ca, gamestop.ca) too? Just checked bestbuy.ca and it does not mention the pre-order deal.

    Also, great move making the 24 hrs start upon code redemption.

  • TheGuardianFID

    Oh and the sharp shooter is also on my hit list!!! 8)

  • I see TJ is ignoring any comments that have anything negative to say. Like why the europeans get the steelbook case and we NA gamers don’t.

  • TO SONY AN OPEN LETTER (Short one)

    Please have the story trailer in cinemas, just before the main movie. Please make outstanding TV spots whit music and emotion that catches everyones eyes. Please have GG Herman Houlst visit Jimmy Fallon show again and show the story trailer! Please do a great tv spot on super bowl. Please do this and it will sell boatloads of copies. I want it to be successful! PLEASE! I have told all of y gaming fiends at my work (about 12-14 people) and I think I have made all of them want to buy this game. I do my best to promote the game, now it is your turn SONY! Please make this happen!!!

    sincerely

    Loyal Playstation fan

  • So how come there is no online coop? I would imagine that since there is already an online component to the game + the split screen coop that wouldnt have been much work to add it?

  • Pre-Ordered Helghast Edition, can’t wait! GG FTW!

  • Can’t wait! Already pre-ordered mine at Gamestop! Hoorah! =D

  • While using the Sharpshooter for Killzone 3, can you set the “Jump” button to Square or Triangle?
    If not, how will we be able to jump over objects while using the Sharpshooter accessory?

    P.S why is the co-op offline only?
    Thanks.

  • Please PLEASE I beg u, give me the steelbook for north america, I swear I will pre order the helghast edition today itself PLEASE!!!

  • Now for the 24 hour deal, I hope that means that when I stop playing multi-player after 2 hours or so that it doesn’t just keep on going & then I’m screwed the next day & really only got 2 hours of the advantages/features :(

    So I hope that those extra features you get from the code will track WHEN and HOW LONG you’ve been playing multiplayer, otherwise it be pretty worthless to me. It would take me several weeks just to get 24 hours of multiplayer in likely.

  • NIGHTKNIGHTNITE

    @19 Move first since I already tired out the dual shock controls during the beta. Not to mention, i’m hearing the move controls for this are actually better then MAG’s which wasn’t that bad!

  • Disappointed with the box art.

  • zeroreloaded

    will this have online coop? if not will it be included in a patch of some sort, seriously guys, if you guys add splitscreen then online is easy as scratch

  • FamedNemesis

    Can’t wait, lookin forward to the improved controls!

  • The box art looks fugly it should of been the pic from the steel book case, that pic was epic.

  • How big is the helmet ?
