Welcome Back to Killzone 3 with a Double XP Weekend!

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 Killzone.com, 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 just finished the campaign a couple of days ago with the sharpshooter and let me say that I’m not going back to the dual shock 3 which also goes for the multiplayer.

Rather play COD double XP. Killzone 3 was a disappointment.

Playing Socom 4 right now and am getting double xp, just wondering how long this will last of if it is just a fluke? I know that you guys said that Zipper had something planned is this it? I know this has nothing to do with killzone 3 but you dont have a post on Socom 4.

A word of advice for Killzone 3 medics. Don’t heal a team mate right in front of the enemy!

@ Aryeh Loeb

I am from Brazil. Here, we have very big number of players that cannot play in the Playstation Network more because, when we enter in a link of the e-mail that was sent, appear that it isn’t for us region. Please, my friends are very sad of this.

Please, remember us and help, please!
