The British Space Nazis are coming! But don’t worry, Sev and Rico are on hand to quell their invasion by ignoring orders, shooting a lot and using a variety of vehicles to well shoot a lot more. It may aspire to be like a gritty war movie but it actually shares more in common with a classic buddy flick. Sev and Rico are like a videogame equivalent of Tango & Cash, Riggs & Murtaugh or even Neal & Del from Planes, Trains & Automobiles as they journey across Helghan via, Tanks, Exoskeletons, Infiltrators and whatever else they can get their hands on. Heck they even scream in unison whenever they crash each said vehicle… which is pretty much every time they get in one. I kept expecting one of them to quip “I’m getting too old for this sh*t”! Thankfully they are not but is Killzone 3 in the zone or a helghastly abomination of a videogame that ought to be killed?
Seems like everything is just heating up, tons of great games and content coming out for the PS3 and it doesn’t seem like SONY is slowing down one bit. On Wednesday February 2nd the Killzone 3 Open Multiplayer Beta is going to hit the PSN. It will run from the 2nd to the 14th, which should give all North American PS3 users that little Killzone fix. It seems like it took forever for this game to come out, but if you look at it now, we only need to wait another 30. Besides the beta being available to all NA PS3 users it’s great that they are giving us a little extra from the Closed Beta. Players will have a chance to check out the game in full glory leading up to the release with support in using the PlayStation Move and stereoscopic 3D.

This trailer makes the game look like it is definitely going to be story-heavy (and includes a lack of f-bombs ). With that said, the story looks to be focusing quite a bit more on the Helghast side of the war (despite you playing as the ISA), which should be pretty interesting. I cannot wait to pick this one up!
According to nextgn.com, Guerilla Games have given hints as to what their next game will be about via their job listings. What we do know is that it is aiming for a AAA first-person shooter but with a twist. Perhaps we are reading to deeply into the job descriptions, but they all seem to be following a common theme.
Phrases such as:
“Looking for a Dumbledore amongst FX Artists”
“Like a modern day Daedalus”
“monsters and ensnare the heroes”
“heroic concept artists spoken of in legend”
“little like a god”
Could it be that Guerrilla Games is making a fantasy FPS perhaps with RPG elements?
Guerrilla Games has announced today that the Killzone 3 Beta will be coming later this month. With that said, the beta is going to be very limited, and there are a few steps you will need to follow in order to participate (though, I’m sure it will open up more as time passes).
First, you must be a PlayStation Plus subscriber. From the looks of it, this will likely be the only way to get in. Second, you will need to be one of the first 5,000 (either SCEA or SCEE territories) to download the theme that will go up on October 19th. If you were, you should get an email confirming it.
And finally, on October 25th, if you got all of the above, you will receive the beta code to download it and begin enjoying the beta. Guerrilla Games wants you to be an active tester if you do get in, reporting bugs and such. After beta testing the Killzone games since the first title, I know for a fact that these guys are serious about their beta testing; one of my favorite developers to test for.
Also, be sure to check out the multiplayer teaser trailer up top. It appears to be 2-3 different maps, probably from the beta itself. So, who’s going to try to get into this thing, then?
