In Killzone: Liberation, two months after the events of Killzone, most of southern Vekta is still under Helghast control. The rules of war have been cast aside with the Helghast General, Metrac, employing brutal measures in order to seize the initiative and strengthen his position further. Returning as Templar, players will be sent on a mission to undertake a covert operation to save hostages captured by Metrac, while ISA troops continue the fight for liberty.

If you were left wanting more at the end of the Killzone: Liberation campaign, Chapter 5 won't disappoint. Squad sergeant Rico is missing – you must discover the truth of his fate over four high-tension missions consisting of over two hours of brand-new gameplay with new terrain to explore, new vehicles to control and swarms of Helghast to eliminate. Chapter 5 also comes with two brand new multiplayer maps for both Ad Hoc and Infrastructure Mode: Prison and Construction Site.

Putting the best squad together for an Infrastructure Mode match will be simple: each player will have a 'My Killzone' page featuring their identity. Killzone.com will also feature unprecedented access to unlockable content as well as regular updates of new developments and features. The relaunched killzone.com is set to become the ultimate online Killzone resource for dedicated players and newcomers alike – and newcomers to Killzone should watch out for the game’s upcoming Platinum release.

Infrastructure Mode includes 'Duel Mode 1vs1': take another player on in a head-to-head battle which will really raise the stakes. This new mode has been adapted for two players from the multiplayer format by using strategically-placed barbed wire to reduce the surface area of the combat zone.

New unlockable content: the Killzone: Liberation disc will link via the PSP browser directly to killzone.com. Successful completion of an in-game level will allow the user to access the site and access extra content.
