The story begins where Killzone 2 left off, with Visari, the vicious Helghast dictator, lying dead at the feet of Special Forces soldiers Sev and Rico. The battle may have been won but the war is far from over. Visari’s death has left behind a world of political scheming, infighting and outright murder. Meanwhile his parting gift, a nuclear bomb detonated in Phyruss, the Helghan Capital, has decimated the ISA invasion force. With no re-enforcements and supplies quickly running out, you must now fight against ruthless Helghast war machine alone.
An epic cinematic war experience.
With levels ten times bigger than in Killzone 2, this is Helghan like you’ve never seen it before. You’ll face brutal combat in a host of environments that threaten to bury you on the deadly planet. Killzone 3 will see you trudge through toxic nuclear wastelands, get lost in a lethal alien jungle, fight in bitter arctic conditions and take the battle into space as you fight against Helghast domination – with every location featuring a distinct gameplay style for you to master.
Killzone 3 will be fully playable in Stereoscopic 3D, immersing you more deeply into the ferocious world and putting you at the heart of the action. But be careful. While you experience this world in incredible, High Definition, Stereoscopic 3D detail – you’ll learn to fear what’s around every single corner.
The Helghast are back and they’re bigger and fiercer than you’ve ever seen them. From Jetpack troopers to enemies wielding portable weapons of mass destruction, your enemies will be tougher, scarier and equipped with a host of new toys in their quest for destruction.
Beginning on January 27, the Killzone 3 Total Game Integration will kick off when the Helghast invade and destroy the PlayStation Home Central Plaza, leaving it as the last ISA stronghold. Once in PlayStation Home, users will be able to aid in the ISA evacuation of Helghan by launching into a series of games across three different levels to gain accessories for their PlayStation Home avatar. Completion of all three levels will reward players with Unlock Points, which can be redeemed for new weapons and abilities in Killzone 3 multiplayer.
Additionally, available for the first time in PlayStation Home, users will be able to pre-order Killzone 3 within the platform and will receive the exclusive Helghan jet pack costume for their PlayStation Home avatar as a gift with purchase.
“PlayStation Home has seen tremendous growth in the last year and now features hundreds of games, with more coming all the time,” said Jack Buser, director of PlayStation Home, SCEA. “The introduction of Total Game Integration is another huge step forward, allowing Home to directly affect gameplay in your favorite PlayStation 3 titles.”
The Killzone 3 pre-orders in PlayStation Home are hosted by Amazon.com and are available until February 24, 2011. In addition to the custom jet pack for their PlayStation Home avatar, users that pre-order through PlayStation Home will also receive the Amazon.com gift with purchase bundle.
