New Killzone 3 DLC Announced!


It’s finally here! Well, not yet, but it’s going to be. The new DLC for Killzone 3 has finally been unveiled, thanks to Geoff Keighley’s GTTV show. It’s called the Steel Rain map pack, and it’s going to invade your PS3 console soon.

According to the reveal, the map pack will bring you at least two more new 24-player maps. From junkyards to Stahl’s facility giving you many missions to fulfill, to special weapons and game modes, all these are going to be right in your the palm of your hands. Also promised are more exo-suits and jet packs.

Look at the insanely awesome pictures of the Steel Rain map pack after the jump.


So far, it all sounds great! Definitely, it’s awesome to see such prompt support for the game just a few days after its release. Guerrilla Games sure know their market well. They also know how to listen to their community that’s one thing for sure.

Just the other day, the devs immediately sent out a patch post-launch, dealing with gameplay and network issues, among many others. It was a comprehensive patch, too, so in case you haven’t picked it up for yourself, we suggest you do so that you can enjoy your game glitch-free.

The GTTV show footage was ridiculously short, but sweet. Sadly, it did not say when we can expect it to land, or for how much will it be. We’re also hoping to hear some more word about the features that will be specifically included in it. Not to worry, though. PS3Blog.net has your back, we’ll inform you as soon as we hear something.

UPDATE: Found a two minute long video of the new map junkyard and it seems there’s a lot more jet packs and exo-suits involved in this DLC map pack.

    Am I the only one who thinks this is NOT cool?

    Man, they’ve just released the game and they’re already trying to get more money out of you.

    I think it’s awesome because 1. More content is always fun. 2. Guerrilla Games DLC is never overpriced. 3. Well wake up and smell the coffee MORE DAMN JETPACKS!

    ^^ The game has been finished for many weeks now, there is a long time before a game releases when developers have time to work on more content but it is simply too late to put it into the game.

    theyre not just trying to get more money out of you, just offer more content. and if you think that content is worth the price then you can buy it, if not then don’t.

    but day 1 dlc doesn’t mean they are holding anything back.

    @Dean147, you are in denial and the companies appreciate that. It is too early to charge us for any DLC.

    Hopefully this is the yet un-revealed Slurpee.com Map pack you can get with Slurpee points!!

    well it is optional dlc, they aren’t charging you for it.

    and no I’m not in denial. Killzone was in the hands of reviewers back in january. there are a huge amount of people working on the game and some of them would have been working on new dlc content. when that content comes out is irrelevant, day 1 or 2 months later. its already been developed, who cares when they release it.

    We need more operations maps!

    Slurpee is the first DLC, 2 old maps… oh well

    @Dean147 I agree with you completely. I always got the DLC for KZ2 even after I started playing other games online. Figured I might as well show my support for the product. And as you said its not overpriced, I loved the map packs. Looking forward to this.
