Killzone 3: Behind The Scenes

Aryeh Loeb's Avatar Posted by Producer, Guerrilla Games

Spanning more than 70 minutes of cutscene footage, the Killzone 3 single player campaign boasts a breathtaking storyline brought to life by some of Hollywood’s finest talents. In this sneak peek at the Killzone 3: Behind The Scenes featurette, which is part of the Killzone 3 Helghast Edition extras, Guerrilla reveals how real-life actors were transformed into virtual characters.

Using state-of-the-art motion capture techniques, the actors’ performances were captured using reflective tracking markers worn on the face and body. Many of the props and characters they were acting off only existed inside the computer, however.

Actor Ray Winstone (Admiral Orlock), who cut his teeth on full-body performance capture in the 2007 movie adaptation of Beowulf, was undaunted by that prospect. ”It’s like going back to school in a way,” he said. “You play the scene, and you start to get your imagination back, you know?”

Co-star Malcolm McDowell (Chairman Stahl), whose video game appearances stretch back to the early nineties, was quite satisfied with the technology. “When I’m 85, I can be doing video games, because they can put a young man’s face over mine,” he joked. “And as long as I don’t do a gravelly voice, I’ll be alright!”

The full Behind The Scenes featurette is an exclusive part of the Killzone 3 Helghast Edition extras. Pre-order your copy today!

I was pleased to see Ray Winstone being a part of Killzone 3. He’s a great actor (Edge of Darkness, Beowulf, The Proposition, King Arthur, ect.) with a deep distinct gritty voice that will go pefectly with Killzone. Can’t wait!

    We are very happy that he is a part of the Killzone universe now. Just like Malcolm McDowell and previously Brian Cox.

The cinematics look astonishing. I love Ray Winstone, so that’s a definite bonus.

Any word on who’s voicing Narville?

Gah, this is looking sicker and sicker (in a good way). Been replaying KZ2 and also been playing some online lately getting pumped for this. It looks like you guys are really taking it to the next level with your story.

I’m going to try to ask this again, 3rd time is a charm, can you play split screen in 3D?

gekko1986 said:

Will there be an option to switch between the old “weighted” feel, and the new set up? I haven’t played the game yet, so I don’t how the game feels, but the old controls are something I really enjoyed about KZ2.

El_Hoardo said:

I know you have split screen campaign, but is their split screen online multiplayer? And if so, can we use our own PSN IDs?

CelicaCrazed said:

Jim Sonzero rocking a Gurren Lagann shirt!! If they can make the game 1/10th as epic as that show, we’ll be in for an awesome treat!

watsuke said:

January 28th, 9:59 am

ThreeLeggedFreak said:

Should’ve cut that 70 minutes of cutscene in half and added online co op.

KazeEternal said:

25 days…… 25 DAYS!!!!… AAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHH lol I’m excited can’t you tell. Going to be spoiled stupid by the Helghast Edition.

I am so uber excited for this game to drop. 3D with the sharpshooter will be amazing!!!! A big thank you to those responsible for transforming Central Plaza into a desctuction area with KZ everywhere. Great Idea. It got most of our clan excited to go back into home and play the games on there for the unlock points. I think we spent 6 hours in home last night playing, running packages, and having fun. I actually changed my preorder from Gamestop to Amazon through Home. Better deal, cheaper, release day home delivery, plus a helghast flight suit :) ANY CHANCE OF 3D TRAILERS ON THE PS STORE ANYTIME SOON?

Hope you do the same for Socom 4 and Motorstorm
Great job, and thanks.

I’ve been doing KZ2 in Elite, No HUD, no hint, no subtitles this past week to get pumped. Still sooooo immersive, but i’ve got two minors questions:

-While engaging in a firefight with those “evils” helghast, will my gun still make a different sound while firing with my ammo running low :) ?

-HUD is still optional if I want to remove it ?

Killzone 3 uses 100% of PS3’s power…? I hope so.

station3fever said:

January 28th, 10:35 am


Killzone3 looks really sweet :) just don’t forget it’s a game and not a movie. in other words i don’t want to sit there for half hour watching fmv’s “I want to play and kick butt”.
You got some great actors on your side, heck that alone makes me want to play NOW lol :)

hashem816 said:

I babysat Malcolm McDowell’s kid when he was filming a movie at my work a few years back. He’s a very nice man. I can’t wait to get my hands on KZ3!!

Not even a chance I was ever getting the Helghast edition. I would have definitely bought the special edition that’s ONLY in Europe.

Have you revealed all the game modes for the game? or there will be surprises? =D

CaptTM said:

January 28th, 10:58 am

Cool, and for split-screen can you use the PS Move in it? Such as, me using the PS Move and my buddy using the DualShock3 or both of us using the PS Move for example?

usedtoiletpaper said:

January 28th, 11:05 am

Wow, there are so many great ps3 exclusives coming out this year, but around how long will the campaign be? i hope it’s at least 10hrs, not like it matters as much with the exceptional online play!

ALEXgrey69 said:

January 28th, 11:09 am

When is the 1st official review? Where can I read the review? Has 2 player online CO-OP been confirmed? Will the behind the scenes in the promo be included on the blu-ray? The game’s weapon inertia seems very fluid. Does the turning radius still have that feeling of heft? I thought that made Killzone 2 different than other first person shooters.

Kirkpad said:

January 28th, 11:13 am

A friend of mine got to play the whole KZ3 campaign in Europe. He said it was FANTASTIC.

wuzzerWillabee said:

January 28th, 11:23 am

Will KZ3 support LAN? I’m assuming it won’t since KZ2 didn’t, but it would be nice to know for sure.

SeanScythe said:

January 28th, 11:48 am

Will someone answer this Will KZ3 have Online Co-op for story? If not why not? If one PS3 can run two players in Splitscreen why can’t we have Online Co-op?

Arcadian_Rebel said:

January 28th, 11:49 am

Wait quick question, the FULL version of the game will have Online Co-op for the Single player right? It’s not just restricted to splitscreen is it? Please for the love of God tell me it has Online CO-OP. This has been said to be in the game since we found out it had Co-op, if it’s not I can tell you now we are not going to be happy.
