Guerilla Games’ Michiel van der Leeuw has revealed a few more additional details, such as the controls, multiplayer and graphics aspects, in regards to Killzone HD.
KZ1 HD: -Can be bought from PS Store separately - 720p @ 30fps no Famerate drops - Updated controls -Improved audio - Trophies - No remote play - Split screen multiplayer remains - No 3D -No Move support -No online multiplayer OMFGGGG, day 1 for glory of Helghan!
Can't wait to play this in split screen and in HD!
I'm buying this game the first 10 seconds its available and would only fail if a lot of people lag up the psn store. I'm so excited about this that I want to do a cartwheels like kai. :puts hands in the air: thank you Sony
and Sony will just let this awesome trilogy slip to the market just like it did not exist... nice marketing and sales move Sony
I have tried many times to play the original after having played KZ2 and I just couldnt take the way it looked/played. Nice they will give it the spit and polish it deserves like other PS2 classics.
30 fps... Come on. This seems like a rush job now...
Well with PS2 they pushed for solid 30fps but they sort of failed and were plaqued by reoccuring frame rate drops, but this time around, it seems they want to just do it justice with the HD version with uncompressing what was a very pretty game ahead of its time, a soild smooth 30 fps is fine by me, its an improvement nevertheless over the original game which could not maintain its 30, even though a 60fps would have been more satisfiying.
i dont even get wtf you want with a remaster . There no such a thing yet as a 60 fps killzone to begin with
by the sound of the article it sounds like they wanted it to be in line with 2 & 3, i guess to keep people from getting used to a 60 fps experience from the series.
@mika Most HD remaster' usually keep their original fps. I think god of war is the only one to have changed.
60fps would make KZ2 and KZ3 look bad.
let's hope it's a port for vita then ^^
Cool, about what I expected. And thanks. Nice to see all the gist of it without having to go the site.
Thank God it can be bought separately. Now I can play KZ1 without having to give my money towards the worst Killzone game in the franchise, KZ3.
I agree that KZ3 is the worst of the series, but thats a bit like saying Penny's (from Big Bang Theory) left boob is the worst of the two. They're still both awesome!
KZ3 is the worst of the series, due to the poor campaign and the multiplayer map designs, yet because of it's fantastic move implementation and 3D support it is also my most played game of the series.
Well, honestly I don't want to show or provide any support toward KZ3. I'm almost literally praying everyday that KZ4 is nothing like KZ3. I don't want to give Guerrilla Games ANY indication that KZ3 is what a KILLZONE game should be.
KZ HD is all I wanted! not really willing to let go of my copies of KZ2 and KZ3!
Pity it won't support Move.
@ axelstone As long as you know about it why do you care whether everybody else does or not?
Hmmm... Didn't Halo already do this?
Yeah right after god of war did and MS said they werent. Then saw how much bank sony made doing it.
I loved the first killzone. I like the helghast character you played as and the tension with rico. The characters were great. Each one had different strengths and weaknesses. I liked them more than the ones in 2 or 3. Plus rico should not be a main character like he was in 2 or 3. I might pick this up to play while i wait for hitman, dead space 3, and the new god of war. I had so much fun killing bots in the multiplayer too. Best bots ever in the killzone series.
Really? No online multiplayer? That's a huge bummer. I'll probably pass.
I can't believe they are doing this and not a SOCOM HD. What a joke.
Thank you for letting me buy this individually from the other two. I have Killzone 2 and 3 and I wanted Killzone HD (ahh memories). I am a little disappointed (if what ritsuka666 is true because I couldn't see it) at the no move controls because I liked Killzone 3's controls and I found I preferred the move controls but still very happy to see Killzone HD ( I do hope it isn't a rushed job and doesn't turn out the same as what happened to Medal of Honour: Frontline)
It will be great. At first they were going to just sell it as is, without HD and updates. I was bitterly dissapointed. BUT, yet again Sony didn't disappoint . Day 1 buy for me. Underrated game, such a gorgeous game from the ps2.
why are people complaining about 30fps ? they have been playing too much COD . 30fps is just fine
im wondering if theyre gonna fix the graphics issues
Damn, no online multiplayer :( THAT would have been amazing.
30fps 60fps I don't care as long as the game is playable, but anyway I can finish what I started back then with KZ1 the last level I left off was some building that was under attack LOL I didn't even get up to the part with hakah
Awesome! I already got 2 and 3, but I never boughtthe first one for my PS2. No I can play it in HD. Thanks, Sony! :D
I'll be getting Killzone HD for sure. Loved that game on PS2, and it's still my favorite Killzone game to this day. The other two don't even come close.
I never played Kilzone 1 on PS2, will definitely look at getting it it for PS3.
I can't wait for this game too. Played 2 and 3, so I can't wait to play the first game of the series.
i want it!
I'm interested in the 'updated controls' part. Is that like a new button layout or is it altering the gameplay to be like KZ2/3?
Great trilogy!!! and i cant wait for KZ mercenary aand KZ4!!! Love Guerrilla Games!!!
FINALLY! I missed being a Shadow Marshall......
I missed out on KZ1, but loved KZ2 and 3. I'm buying this day 1. Too bad there's no Move support or online MP.
Trophies for offline multiplayer, if it means you'll able to get online trophies via offline multiplayer then every game need that.
there is no online multiplayer - offline only.
what a disappointing hd 'update' - no 1080p, no online multiplayer, no stereoscopic 3d support. i might expect that from an ubisoft release, but killzone is a firstparty sony ip - they should treat it with more respect.
I'm not at all disappointed with being offered HD version of Killzone 1. It's what I've wanted since playing KZ2. And it could of been alot worse. Sony could have just released it as PS2 Classic on PSN and added a voucher with the collection. That would of blown!
yeah totally, i'm glad that its coming out at all - but i cant help but compare it to the ratchet and clank HD updates that just came out... it looks pretty bare-bones in comparison. i know that there aren't a ton of people with 3d tvs, but for me, the inclusion of 3d is a pretty big selling point because i enjoy it when it's offered. but i'm glad other people are excited for the game regardless; i'm just not sure if i'll be picking it up myself. all i'm saying is: there's nothing wrong with being a consumer and having expectations for a product, but i agree this is a big step up from a ps2 classic release!
just be happy we get a chance to play this again...its a classic we have all been waiting for and sure it would have been nice for online multiplayer...but we dont need 1080p and 3d to enjoy something we know we will already enjoy....now just hope we have a gta collection seeing how we were suppose to get gta 3 on the store and it never came out could it be the same as the reason kz1 never came to the store when it was suppose to
In all honesty this HD version is a rush job. And is being pushed onto the store shelves before the holiday blockbusters drop, I think. It was dam close to being released in January as a PS2 classic with No performance/graphic upgrade or trophy support for $10 bucks until ALOT of people complained and demanded a PS3 upgrade. http://n4g.com/news/919575/... So for $5 bucks more we get HD,Trophies, stable performance and improved audio and controls. I'm in! Nothing but thanks to Sony and GG for making this happen.
Woah, KZ1 HD gets its own disc? How big is this remake XD Disappointed that there's no move option for KZ1 but ah well, gives it a more nostalgic play through with classic controller >:D
Will it have manuals for each game? I remember the original Kilzone manual being this cool newspaper design. Kind of like a combo of the GTA manuals and C&C instalation screens. Informative and immersive.
Right, looks like the main probem that came from original Killzone finally resolved (framerate and bugs). I cant wait to play as Marshal Luger :D
kz1 was a bad game. The hd lifting will not make it any better.
Just beat kz1 on my bc 60g ps3! gonna get the re-make and wax all the trophys! great!
damn, no online MP. Not sure if want
It seems that the only one in the franchise is killzone 3... If they could have gotten that beast to run in 3D, I see no reason why a retooled HD prerelease of Killzone for PS2 couldn't get a 3D patch. Oh well, at least the game has no drop in framerates like its original on ps2. Still getting it.
Day 1 !
This generation for the Sony fan has been unbelievable. From the power of the cell and the incredible first party exclusives, to Years later in 3rd place World Wide, having not smelled the victory of first place in the NPD United States numbers for almost 2 years now. And now 2012 is almost over, you have Xbots getting excited for a new Halo game that will mark the end of the 360's era this gen pretty much and the Sony guys are getting excited for PS1 games on the brand new Vita, and old HD remakes of mediocre games of yester year. I never thought I'd see the day. What a crazy gen this has been.
While neither another Halo or a remake of a PS2 game get me excited. I am excited looking past that and am looking at TLOU & Beyond and even that new move game to get excited, Sony is the only company who gets new IPs should come all throughout a consoles life cycle and that is why I will continue to be a PS gamer 1st over any other platform. While I enjoy sequels to games I liked I need more than that to keep me happy as a gamer and Sony has delivered those new & different experiences to me as a gamer since the PS1. And on a side note no need to use the term bot when speaking of a gamer who prefers the 360. A gamer is a gamer regardless of platform.
