Killzone: Mercenary Launches in North America Today

Mark Green's Avatar Posted by

Killzone Mercenary is out today in North America!

Players who purchase Killzone Mercenary on PlayStation Store will receive the “Blackjack’s Briefcase” pre-order bonus, which includes an in-game cash bonus and 48 hours of Double XP. (Please note that you must be online for the Double XP bonus to count.) Next Tuesday, September 17th, the offer goes away and users who purchase on PSN will only get the game. If you’re keen to go digital, take advantage before it’s too late!

It’s been a fantastic voyage for us, and we’re immensely proud of what we’ve been able to create – the true Killzone FPS experience on a handheld. A twin-stick shooter on a HD screen in the palm of your hands, with substantial replayability built in and, if I do say so myself, an addictive multiplayer game integral to the whole experience.

The multiplayer game has been through a few stages of Betas over the last couple of months, and we are immensely grateful to all everyone who took part — especially those who took the time to provide feedback. We’ve worked hard to make sure those views were taken on board (we were overwhelmed by how much feedback we received!), and the day one patch is a direct consequence of that feedback with changes made to improve standard things like stability and connectivity, but also to get people back into the game quicker. We appreciate some users’ frustration over the patch’s size, but we offer every assurance that we couldn’t have included its changes any sooner, and that the enhancements—borne of the beta—offer dramatic and worthwhile improvements. The Betas were limited in what they showed, but we hope you’ll feel the impact of all the time that has been dedicated to perfecting the multiplayer experience when you play the game.

We hope you all enjoy Killzone Mercenary just as much as we did making it!

I just bought the game on PSN. The download started but it stopped so I tried to restart it. However, the PS Store doesn’t recognize my previous purchase and has the price listed under the game instead of ‘Purchased’ despite receiving an e-mail confirming my purchase. Now I can’t redownload the game.

I played the beta and I thought it was awesome!

Does anyone know if I buy a physical copy, will this 1GB patch be saved to the game cart or the memory card? Digital is always nice but 4.5GB is HUGE and those memory cards are expensive and even 32GB isn’t enough for my full library :(

Also, why is it that when we download a game from the PSN that it doesn’t come with the most recent patch? It’s rather annoying when you download and install a game, then go to play it and find that you’ve got to wait another 30minutes to play because there’s an update! But worse is that it’s misleading when a game says it takes up 2GB on the PSN Store page and then there’s another 1GB patch after you buy it and you realise that you don’t have enough room on your Vita or PS3…

It 7pm over here in New York and still the pre order code is not working for physical copies of the game hell I don’t really need it but if it came with the game why not but seriously if they want to entice gamers with special pre-order bonuses make sure it actually goes through and don’t say ” you have entered an invalid playstation card or promotion code “

Excited does not do justice to my feelings waiting for this game to come out. As soon as I was able to head out to my local game store to purchase this game I walked straight in, grabbed a copy and got in line with a few other people. While waiting in said line, i pulled out my phone to read up on some gaming news and saw the article regarding the ridiculous 1.1gb patch already released for the game day one. With a heavy sigh and heart i returned to game to the shelf and walked out of the door.

I have a 32gb game card. I make many digital purchases/PS+ free game downloads to my Vita. With the still over costed (yes still) memory cards and small sizes/inability for me to easily swap multiple cards I am not interested in using the space of an entire game on my memory card for a patch. I feel like this game needs to be pulled from the shelves, rewritten to the cards and redistributed to stores/the people who buy copies in the mean time.

This is by far the most disappointed i have been with any game release for Vita and this game is actually really good!

I got it today.. I played a little so far before I passed out from a long day at college. Loving it so far.. Hopefully I can pull myself away from the constant stream of games I currently am playing, so it doesn’t get lost in the mix.

I think the reason it doesn’t update at midnight is the retail stores fault. I have heard that they are kicking up a fuss over direct digital downloads from the console manufacturer taking away from their profits because it cuts them out of the picture. So as a compromise they don’t update at midnight but later in the day so the first rush of games sold come from retail and not download. This is also why we typically do not get the natural discount on the digital download as then this puts the retail stores at a disadvantage.
Either way, Sony needs to get the message that we want midnight updates. I want it pre-ordered and part of my nightly PS+ download package so when I wake up it is there. Make this happen!

I normally don’t complain about much, because I understand how business operates, but I will echo the sentiments of those complaining about the 1.1 gb patch, and especially for those who bought the physical edition. Space should be reserved on the physical cards for such patches, so we don’t have to waste memory card space. And considering the box says only 200 mb of memory space is needed, going over that amount by nearly 1 gb is a bit excessive.
I do appreciate the patch, especially if it makes the game better, but Sony should consider leaving some space in the physical card for such patches.

This game looks great but I dont like the VITA controller or the position of the screen in relation to the controls.

its not comfortable to stare at your hands.

If only I could play this game on my big screen tv, you know what would be cool? if somehow the Vita came in a small micro-console form factor.

I would buy that and this game in a heart beat, alas………….

Come out now! Take my money!!

Euro_Phillyblunz said:

I’ve never played the franchise. I guess it’s time to see what all the hype is about.
