    No, you can find it on specially marked packages of the Standard Edition as well. Quantities are limited so be quick and pick up your copy as soon as you can!

The Helghast are made in Holland guys.

That also for the normal game too, right? I don’t feel like going back to check on that right now but would suck if it was helghast edition only.

    Yes, early access to the SOCOM 4 multiplayer beta is included on the first batch of the standard edition of Killzone 3 as well.

If only the helmet was real Helghan steel… sigh. But, I’ll still be preordering this edition if the helmet is metal or not. Also, sadly this still isn’t as good as the bioshock 2 uber edition :)

February 18th, 5:03 pm

this looks awesome.. can we know the weight of this box..? I’m just curious.. and got another question.. those 24 hours are just the first day after the activation or are 24 hours of gameplay online?

    24 hours from voucher code redemption… but don’t stay up all 24 hours! That’s not healthy!

IceColdKilla44 said:

February 18th, 5:04 pm

Y’know, suddenly I’m really interested to see what the Kevin Butler KZ3 commercial will be like after watching this.

You guys DO have a KB commercial for KZ3…..right?

does the retro map pack have its own trophies?

Ftwrthtx said:

February 18th, 5:05 pm

I’m glad the army guy pack wasn’t sold with this edition. Only 500 of those made and i scored one pack. SWEET!

Butters360 said:

February 18th, 5:06 pm

Hilarious video! You guys need to do this more often. Thanks for the Helghast Edition unboxing. I can’t wait to pick mine up on Tuesday.

bennoboster said:

Hey guys! Awesome vid! Well put together.
Just wondering if the Aus editions will come with the Socom 4 Beta codes aswell or just for you lucky American folk? :)
Again awesome vid :D

InfiniteChaos42 said:

February 18th, 5:15 pm

The eyes should light up. That would be awesome.

Kchow23 said:

February 18th, 5:25 pm

don’t the eyes turn on or you guys decided not to turn them on? good video tho

    David Bull said:

    February 18th, 5:42 pm

    No, the eyes don’t light up with the Helghast Edition. However, the Limited Helghast Edition has eyes that light up. This version can only be won, not purchased.

    Stay tuned to see how you can win a copy of your own!

    You do indeed.

Kchow23 said:

BOOOO!!!!!!!!!! the eyes don’t light up… whoever did the last post about the Helghan Edition lied to me.

Kchow23 said:

February 18th, 5:35 pm

and to quote from a couple posts before:

Kchow23 | February 9th, 2011 at 1:57 pm

btw do the eyes in the helmet turn on/off?

David Bull | February 9th, 2011 at 3:53 pm

Yes, there is a switch to keep the control in your hands.

    That was in reference to the Limited Helghast Edition that we are giving away through contests and sweepstakes. The Killzone 3 Helghast Edition does not have the light up eyes.

    Are you talking about the Limited Helghast Edition? We gave out some during the MP beta:

Pre-ordered the day it became available at my local EB/Gamestop. Can’t wait to pick it up.

I love the intensity when he opens the box… “AHHHHH!” and “On Helghan all children play with dolls!”

zMd113 said:

February 18th, 5:39 pm

That was a GREAT video! Please make more!!!
Oh yeah, I can’t wait for KILLZONE 3!!!

ballagh said:

February 18th, 5:42 pm

David – Any idea if the remaining Ultimate Helghast editions are going to be for sale anywhere? Cutting it close with release day, and I want to change my preorder to that instead. Thanks.

    The Limited Helghast Edition cannot be purchased in stores… only won through contests.

Kchow23 said:

February 18th, 5:43 pm

ohh… makes sense they are completely different

Kchow23 said:

February 18th, 5:44 pm

Still $129 for that.. least it could do is turn on

Stellazira said:

February 18th, 5:49 pm

Hahaha! That was a great video!

The helmet being worn looks cool, the one on the table… uh… yeah… no comment.

Da fudge man Kevin Butler should have done the unboxing

JakeRuiner said:

“First, witness the glorious victory of the helghast over the weak, pathetic ISA.”

The ISA lost? I mean, this helghast soldier just said it, and if he were wrong why would he still be alive? Thats sorta disappointing. I was going to buy KZ3 just to find out the end of this great story, but why if I already know how it ends *sigh*…

Weshzu said:

February 18th, 6:09 pm

not sure if i’ll get this answered but i got a few questions. Lets say i received a bonus of amazon and gamestop and i ordered the helghast edition. Would i be able to stack all of them? since the helghast edition already contains 24hour unlock and load for weapons and skills would i be able to get it again if i type it in for gamestop’s bonus making it 48hours and on top of that receive a 3 skill point bonus from amazon. Just using as an example or any mix or duplicates of pre-order bonus.

2nd question doesn’t the helghast edition include the steel case with the game as well? or am i mistaken thanks hope i get answered this totally cleared up all the speculations of the helmet kz forum was having

No retail, but everything shows up on Amazon or eBay eventually…
Gonna need a Sharp-Shooter Move attachment…

Budapesti said:

Jeff, as an LA-based Brit, let me congratulate you on your English/Helghan accent.
I mean, it was at least more convincing than Keanu Reeves in Dracula, or Natalie Portman’s drowning Australian in V for Vendetta.

    Keanu was “rubbish” in Dracula. Still a great movie though. Thanks!

February 18th, 6:14 pm

That guys voice needed some digital work… as it was weak as hell. That said, all I want out of that box is the game and figure. I don’t care for artbooks and I wouldn’t know where to stick that ugly head… it should of been an actual mask.

Inofensivo said:

February 18th, 6:14 pm

Sorry Jeff I am not North American I am Latin American

JakeRuiner said:

February 18th, 6:15 pm

Forgot to ask, how could you see while wearing that helghan mask Sid? It doesn’t look like it has eye holes.

Dark_Yoda_313 said:

February 18th, 6:18 pm

I’m a little disappointed that the 24hrs is actually timed from the moment you input the code; I had assumed it meant your first 24 hrs racked up online. This is a wee bit unfair on those of us whose online time is severely limited by, y’know, work, children and wives – we’re not all students with nothing but time on our hands.

But I’ll still pick up my Helghan edition anyway. One of the few games I’m actively psyched for this year. Cannot wait!

Looks great, but I don’t have the cash for that atm :/

February 18th, 6:35 pm

How much for the IRL Helghast suit!?

Umichana said:

February 18th, 6:38 pm

So, how big is the helmet? =P ~230mm?

Budapesti said:

February 18th, 6:46 pm

@JakeRuiner I saw some Helghast troopers wandering around at E3 last year and wondered exactly the same thing. I couldn’t figure out at all how they see in those costumes.

KAPADO said:

February 18th, 6:50 pm

I’m impressed about the size of the helghast head, I expected to be 2x smaller. can’t wait for my box to get here .

letherclad said:

February 18th, 6:58 pm

AWESOME VIDEO, i was in tears from laughing so hard! Great job!

I have my helghast version preordered, I can’t believe its almost time!

Plecko said:

Sounds like John Oliver in the suit. Hahaha

First: I don’t care what you say. Staying up four 24 hours to get my money’s worth. Five four hour sessions. Or four five hour sessions.

Second: I dunno. You guys should like gimme a discount or something. ‘Tis expensive.

jpbslayer said:

February 18th, 7:20 pm

also @63 – you gave some away during the mp beta???? most of us couldnt access the beta – i had it , but would not connect. so how is this fair??

KwietStorm said:

February 18th, 7:21 pm

@81 Dark_Yoda_313

You’re getting double XP or all weapons unlocked or both. Unfair? Really? How fair do you realistically think it would be to give only a select group of people double XP for 24 actual gameplay hours? That’s a long time to get a head start on everyone else.

KwietStorm said:

February 18th, 7:26 pm

@92 jpbslayer

The servers were only having problems for a couple days. Actually, most of us did connect to the beta. Check the leaderboards. Completely fair. Like you already said, only some of them were given away through the beta.
