Welcome Back to Killzone 3 with a Double XP Weekend!

Victor Zuylen's Avatar Posted by Editor, Killzone Community

Killzone 3
To celebrate the return of the PlayStation Network and welcome you back to Killzone 3’s online battlefield, we’ve got a Double XP Weekend lined up! Starting this Friday, May 20 at 17:00 PM UK time, and lasting until Monday, May 23 at 10:00 AM UK time, all XP you earn in Killzone 3’s multiplayer matches will be doubled.

The upcoming Double XP Weekend isn’t the only Killzone-related goodie in the pipeline. As you may know, Sony has revealed that Killzone: Liberation is part of its Welcome Back Program for PSN members, meaning you’ll be able to download the critically acclaimed PlayStation Portable shooter absolutely free of charge. And there’s even more… But we’ll announce that at a later date.

So stay tuned to, and remember to brush up your Killzone 3 multiplayer skills. This weekend, you’ll have a chance to catch up on 3 weeks’ worth of rank progression!

P.S.: During the Double XP Weekend, the Score Screen will display the message “Fast Starter Bonus” instead of “Bonus Points” – this is a string error that will be fixed in future Bonus XP events.

I so badly want to snipe some Helghast, but a friend is coming over this weekend and we are going to be all over the Portal 2 Coop campaign, finally!

Not to mention I’ve got to get him envious of my L.A. Noire. (you see, he can’t afford one until his next paycheck. It’s really been an expensive year for gamers! Which is phenomenal :D).

Well, I’m sure he’ll want to play a few rounds in the old Killzone (by which I mean the new Killzone). Who could resist?

See ya on the battlefield!!

I have been trying to play but I keep getting disconnected. It says I’ve been signed out but I’m still online. Every other game is fine so it’s not on my end. I want to take advantage of this double xp but it’s kinda hard when you keep get booted from games before they finish.

RE_Player said:

May 20th, 2:04 pm

@62 Does it give different error numbers every time? For me it’s never the same one. I hope they get this issue resolved by tomorrow.

LeanFuture said:

May 20th, 2:18 pm

Woohoo! I was a little bummed when it looked like black ops was the only game with double exp. I by far favor KZ so I’m really happy. Thanks guys, you made my day!!

I don’t play killzone , so im on the same boat wondering as to when the store is going to be back up, im ready to get my psone classics on!

ChilliwacKAttacK said:

May 20th, 2:23 pm

@65 Yes pretty much a different code every time. I was able to get in and play about 15 min and then the network error appeared.

M-Easy said:

May 20th, 2:24 pm

I’m there.

RE_Player said:

May 20th, 2:29 pm

@71 Yeah it’s weird. If for some reason it starts working post here so I can see and try it out myself. I’ll do the same if it starts working on my end.

mrswagger-96 said:

nirojan45 said:

May 20th, 2:31 pm

I saw this on like a dozen different sites before it appeared on the PS blog….wtf guys?!?!?!

on a brighter note, this and COD:BO both have double xp and thats a win-win for me!

Buckis2002 said:

May 20th, 2:35 pm

this and blackops same weekend…. I’m going to stay up 24/7 if I can just to fit killzone in

kingkranz said:

May 20th, 2:36 pm

Awesome! I’ll be there!

ChilliwacKAttacK said:

May 20th, 2:44 pm

@73 i connected and talked to two other guys playing and asked if they had been having connection issue and they said no… then i shot a player and he didn’t die and then melee’d him.. and still didn’t die. that’s when i knew i was on my way out again.

RE_Player said:

May 20th, 2:48 pm

@77 That is exactly what happens before I disconnect. I melee a guy he gets back up and than I disconnect. Last night I was playing a game with some friends and one enemy kept on getting back up until he disconnected. I think we must look like that to everyone else playing normally while we see everyone else glitch out until we disconnect. Again I hope they fix this issue soon. If it helps I’m in Canada so maybe it’s a regional thing?

ChilliwacKAttacK said:

May 20th, 2:50 pm

@78 not a regional thing unless it’s North America. I’m in the southern part of USA.

RE_Player said:

May 20th, 2:58 pm

@Victor As you can see I along with some other people have been having some disconnecting issues. Are you aware of these issues and is the team planning to fix this?

DragonOwari said:

May 20th, 3:00 pm

I am getting on right now. Who is using the Move and the Sharp Shooter?

JinZX1 said:

May 20th, 3:20 pm

Sweet. I’ll take a few strolls through Helghan this weekend.

lock_groove said:

May 20th, 3:21 pm

Anyone got any tips for a Killzone n00b?

I’m finding the learning curve on this game to be pretty steep, and none of my Black Ops strategies are transferring over. I’m dieing a lot.

What’s a good class to start out with?

Should I run around and try to hunt people down, or is it better to *gasp* camp?

ChilliwacKAttacK said:

May 20th, 3:28 pm

@80 just played a full match… good luck.

Izanagi-no-Okami said:

May 20th, 3:35 pm

Well damn, I was planning on playing through the co-op mode in Portal 2 this weekend.

Busca-Cabezas said:

May 20th, 3:55 pm

Aaarrgh!! Just got kicked out of a Double XP game and I was killing it!!!! Oh well… Bring it on!!! 2ble XP!! Woot Woot!!!

May 20th, 3:55 pm

major fail; i love KZ3 and actually prefer it before CoD; but to make double XP weekend the same day, is just retarded

Project79th said:

May 20th, 3:57 pm

I don’t mind CoD but it smells a little fishy. I’ll stick with Killzone any day. This is not a flame job, just my opinion.

resist_this13 said:

May 20th, 4:13 pm

Wow lucky, I just bought it yesterday.

leukoplast said:

May 20th, 4:35 pm

I may have to jump in for a few matches, I haven’t played KZ3 for probably two and a half months Perhaps now the matchfailmaking has been upgraded, although it seems doubtful. I’m sure I’ll still end up being thrown into the same 4 matches over and over and over which only has 3 people in each one, or I will finally get into a full match only to realize my team is getting dominated due to the fail TSP system.

Either way this double XP will be a good excuse for me to try out the DLC that I got for free with PS+. I just hope things have improved since the last time I played.
