Killzone 3 is still a long way from launch, but Guerrilla Games already has something else baking in the oven.
The studio’s managing director, Herman Hulst, revealed in an interview with Dutch game mag Control that they are now in the planning stages for a new IP. Said Hulst, Guerrilla invited its own employee base for concept pitches, something which is apparently “typical” of Dutch-based studios.
Development on the new title is expected to ramp up once Killzone 3 meets its planned February 2011 launch.
Guerrilla Games can’t talk enough about how seamless the experience will be with Killzone 3. Both Steven Ter Heide and Herman Hulst have talked to the press about the loading times in the game, or rather, how it’s practically gone from the picture.
Heide, during E3, was quoted as telling Ausgamers that “loading times are pretty much gone,” a definite accomplishment for Guerrilla since they reportedly want “to get rid of them completely.”
This sentiment was later echoed by Herman Hulst: “We’re excited what the PlayStation 3 can do for us and what we can do for it. Literally evertyhing is streamed now.”
Non-existent load times? Now that’s certainly something to look forward to!
Guerrilla Games has released a teaser trailer for Killzone 3. The trailer highlights the new melee combat to be introduced in KZ3. Since the release of the trailer the official Killzone 3 website has been bombarded with traffic so the video is slow to load on the site.
Fortunately you can watch it here.
Once you’re done watching the trailer head over to the European official Playstation Blog. Guerrilla Games is currently answering questions about KZ3.
It appears the Internet may have gotten ahead of themselves when Killzone 3 news hit. Word quickly spread that Naughty Dog was helping with the game engine for Killzone 3. That has turned out to be flase.
Guerrilla’s Games’ Herman Hulst noted at a press event that Naughty Dog is not involved in Killzone 3. The information regarding destructible enviroments may also be false as well. What has been confirmed on the other hand, is the addition of a new “brutal melee system.”
Sorry to get anyone’s hopes up.
More Killzone 3 news is spreading around the Internet thanks to GamePro magazine’s exclusive reveal of the game. The magazine is stating that Naughty Dog, the guys behind the award winning Uncharted series, is working on the graphics engine in Killzone 3.
This wouldn’t be the first time Sony’s first party developers have lent each other a hand for their respective games. Earlier in the month it was revealed that Sony’s Santa Monica Studio helped with the revamped engine for Media Molecule’s upcoming Little Big Planet 2.
Besides the addition of jet packs,the new snow environments, and the 3D feature, Killzone 3 will have something else that wasn’t found in KZ2: fully destructible environments. The destructible environments in KZ2 were limited to a few areas but in the Killzone 3 Guerrilla Games is boasting that everything can be destroyed.
