Gamepro has revealed extensive details of Killzone 3 in their latest magazine. Including the introduction of Jetpacks.

What’s new in Killzone 3?

-Will show the Helghast have humanity left in them.

– Will have the feeling that “of being in a place far away from home, outnumbered by people who want to kill you.”

– Will be like Inglorious Basterds.

– All of the characters in the screenshots are flying in.. jetpacks?!

– Will include arctic levels.

– One mission in the game involves rescuing ISA Captain Narville.

– Game is playable in 3D!

– Have to wear 3D glasses, apparently the 3D effects are “crazy.”

– Combat is “unchanged from predecessor.”

– Or is it? Hand to hand combat involves you “Unloading a string of different (and often brutal) attacks on stunned enemies.”

– The scale is supposed to be “bigger this time.”

– The Jetpacks are “surprisingly lightweight and agile, Killzone 3’s jetpack is easier to maneuver compared to the sluggish incarnations of the gadget found in other games.”

– New weapon called the Wasp, basically shoots a “flurry of rockets” at an enemy.

– Will show off the Helgjast culture.

– There is actually a Helghast language, which will be explored in the game.

– Will have “diverse locales.”

– Have to sit in the center of the 3D tv for the 3D effects to work.

– 3D in this game is called a “Game Changer.”

– Going to have “Intense Action”

– Jetpacks double as a weapon, which basically means a machine gun mounted right on top of it.

– If you shoot Helghast with jetpacks, they’ll “explode like roman candles”

– To control the jetpack, you “have to activate bursts of speed in midair, propelling yourself across further distances.”

– The Jetpack resembles something you’d do in platformers such as Super Mario Bros. Or Uncharted

– In one mission, you have to use the jetpack by “launching yourself from glacier to glacier”

– You’ll see “a lot of” snow levels.

– Everything is more spread out in this game.

– The game looks very complete.
