On Sunday afternoon, new details regarding “Killzone Mercenary” for PlayStation Vita surfaced from the latest issue of Polish magazine PSX Extreme.
- Engine is nearly 1:1 from PS3 version - They added a few new gimmicks to the engine, so they can utilize more PS Vita - Game is gorgeous, clear and crispy textures, big draw distances - Character models are awesome, the same with animation - Stable FPS even with gigantic action inside levels - Literally - game is like portable Killzone 3, looking better than Uncharted (PS Vita). I'm excited, but I also want to hear about the multiplayer of the title. @Below yeah I know, it's just that after beating and playing the MP of KZ3 I was expecting more from them rather than a downgraded system. Good game, but compared to 2 MP it wasn't so good. Not expecting the Vita to be like 2 or anythign, I have faith that they'll be able to deliver what people wanted from with COD ( a fun, fully functionaly MP)
the developers are Guerrilla themselves after all and not some 3rd rate 3rd party developer.
This is the biggest positive. This year will see titles from both Guerulla and Media Molecule on Vita and we can only hope more Sony developers do the same.
*cough* NIHILISTIC *cough*
The developers are NOT Guerrilla Games, Guerrilla Cambridge are. Quality is assured with them, no worries. :D
The advantage of this game is that we've seen a little bit of what a shooter can be on the Vita with Resistance and with Black Ops Declassified. However, neither of those games were outstanding, just decent. But with Killzone Mercenary, they've had the time to develop it, they're not rushing the game just to make it a launch title, and I'm sure the final product will show. It will be one of the first non-launch-window AAA exclusives for the Vita.
Nah dude declassified and resistance were anything but decent. They up there with ridge racer. 3 of the worst games to ever grace the vita.
I can't wait to see gameplay footage. And for it being a portable killzone 3 well,even though i find it hard to believe it wouldn't be tooshocking though. Back when the Vita was called the NGP there were small shots of it. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Around mid-late 2012 i believe they released a trailer showing what i think is a early beta. So given that knowledge they been working on it for nearly a year and by GG. I can't wait to see the results of all that work :D
the gamescom trailer i think it was had gameplay in it. if u missed it here it is below
yeah it look great on vita and i agree it look better than uncharted (vita)
But the only thing "better" about Killzone 3 was controls and response. SO MUCH other content was removed for whatever reason. I know the disagrees are coming, and I can't understand how people can deny it. People didn't like the weight and sluggishness of KZ2. Fine, I get that. But again, they scrapped pretty much everything else that gave it its identity previously. I'm not sure what you mean about bringing what people wanted from COD, etc.
I felt the same way about the subtractions made from Uncharted 2 to 3. Especially Single player bonuses. Thats what made the game soooooo replayable. It was a let down for me for sure as Single player was the main reason I play uncharted.
My problem was the classes the maps the 24 instead of 32
the best graphics ever made on a handheld, may i say? DAY -1 im preordering this.
Thankyou for the list. I for one am really looking forward to buying this game! It'll be nice to hype up a Vita game.
I think what would be a good idea for Sony is if every development studio they have has a team for ps4,ps3 games and a team for Vita games.
It's good in theory but it probably means they have to hire more people and create more teams which costs money. They've recently shut down some studios so I doubt they're going to be looking to employ more people.
They shut down studios, but made second teams in most, if not all of their already established studios.
They have shut as well Studio Liverpool (old Psygnosis), one of the best British developers ... :-(
This game will be the best portable FPS ever made hands down. Killzone is the Halo killer. Sony knows this so they are going to put everything they have behind this game. My body is ready.
dont be foolish. this could easily turn into vita cod or resistance. (although i hope not) and killzone isnt a halo killer.
Lol killzone and halo are different kinda games Halos arcadey and ls is not
What was wrong with Resistance on the Vita? I quite enjoyed it.
Sure it might be another Resistance, but this time it's very doubtful. Guerilla Cambridge is way more professional studio than Nihilistic. @cjflora > I agree, Resistance was totally playable and I quite enjoyed it too, but undoubtedly it needed a lot more work/polish.
I agree. I actually enjoyed both Resistance & COD on Vita. While maybe lacking in polish, they were still very playable & entertaining. Can't wait for Killzone tho. It was the reason I bought a Vita in the first place. Hoping for a Killzone themed Vita bundle.
What does Halo have to do with this?
Killzone is not even close to the popularity halo has ...
Lol apparently you're wrong Let me try and be right Halo is the least popular series in the world No one plays it except for kids who don't know what a real shooter is /s
Thank god you put the sarcasm tag, we were goin bananas trying to figure it all out!
The Halo killer.............. http://www.youtube.com/watc... There is no Halo killer. And Halo have nothing to do with this. You are one of many reasons what's wrong with this site.
He's not serious. At least about the "Halo killer". People who took that seriously are fools to give him exactly what he wants. 1) A handheld game has nothing to do with the success of a console game. 2) He's probably on MS's marketing team trying to plug Halo into unrelated topics under the guise of trolling. 3) Mark him for trolling and ignore him (there's an ignore feature on this site).
Yes no other Fps will be able to compare. and u speak truth dude what is your psn?
^ to my previous comment i meant no other fps on any handheld could compare
ive also found out that there will be 8 vs 8 multiplayer
Thats good news! I was worried that it would be something lame like 4v4. I was looking fiendishly online trying to find the multiplayer cap. Thanks for this info.
Your body is ready? Were you saving your virginity for this game?
That's the joke
Resistance is better than killzone well at least Resistance 1. That is a true halo killer when it came to game play.
Resistance had so much potential to be big like Halo.
And then insomniac went backwards in terms of gameplay in Resistance 2 :( (still a great game though) and then redeemed themselves with Resustance 3- although it's multiplayer still wasn't as good as fall of man, then due to resistance 2 no one bought it whixh was a shame as Resistance 3 was freat- however Nihilistic released the shocking vita game and that was one of if not the final nail in the coffrn :L
Killzone a Halo killer? In the words of Dr Andre Noseck; "Child please".
Don't take anything Killzoner99 says seriously.
Campaing? yes. Multyplayer?...Noooooooohoho
It's not on PS3 so I couldn't care less about it. It won't be a true Killzone game so it's a waste of time.
OK. No one cares.
Oh yeah? Well I don't care that you don't care that he doesn't care.
Lol whatever you say man.
So youre saying Killzone 1 on the PS2 wasnt a true killzone game? Come on man, its a new killzone game where not only the helghasts are the enemies but now the ISA as well :D
"where not only the helghasts are the enemies but now the ISA as well :D" -- O_o something just occurred to me... what if GG is testing the waters (per se) into making the ISA the bad guys? for them to later make every Killzone fan wish come true... HELGHAST CAMPAIGN!!!
Actually, I'd prefer to play as ISA. The helghast are the more interesting enemy to be looking at the entire game. 10 hours of shooting isa character models would be boring, me thinks. I know you're not alone in thinking that, though. I just don't understand peoples fascination with playing as helghast. I'd rather have a more interesting enemy.
@Pilage 05 Good point. But maybe they can redesign the look of the ISA somehow into something more distinguishing and gritty. Maybe they can work into the story somehow that the ISA soldiers are taking performance enhancing drugs that mutate them somehow. Like ultra steroids.
Gonna buy it day one . im keeping money for it from today . but i hope it's cheap . cod / assassin are really really expensive . the games should be 10-15BD but they cost 23BD >.< . that's a lot because the games are shorter / less content/ lower graphics / lower gameplay quality ..etc then the ps3 versions. they even take less time/budget to be created . that's unfair and one of the reasons im annoyed of how sony handle the vita .. anyway . cant wait for it :P ..
I would expect a $50 USD price tag for this game, just based on the fact of it being a first party game and it is one of their flagship franchises
Should be 45 to 40 dollars though....
I would gladly play full price but dont give me Nihillistic crap and expect me to pay full price
I will gladly pay 50 Euro or USD if the quality is high. But indeed not when it is something like Declassified. That was a let down for me personally.
GG games nuff said. This isnt a two bit tgird party studio, but elites in what thy do irregardless of it being a handheld game . Expect best visual on handheld True 8v8 mp (which is already confirmed ) Great sp and gd mp and another game on handheld tht makes the competition look lame and weak Oh and alot of hate from jealous fanboys saying "Why do we want a console exp. on a handheld "lol
Looks incredible! Can't wait to play it. I'd love to hear some multiplayer details too.
I'm very excited to get to play this game later this year, I sure hope the MP has atleast 8v8 with a nice lobby system.
excited for it i am
it seems the COD declassified was gonna be vitas way out but it seems this game is gonna show the power of the vita.
Both of your points were applied to the PS3, but yet it still beat the 360 in both sales and quality and quantity of titles. Keep laughing nervously troll.
I totally love my Vita. I really do, but he's kind of right. Almost every single game that's on the Vita that matters has been given away for free on Playstation Plus save for some solid gems like LittleBigPlanet, which even that had a ridiculous discount for PS Plus xD. How are they even gonna get sales if everything it free LOL Im not complaining lmao i love it (Ninja Gaiden Sigma is free this Tuesday! =D ) but it sort of shows how small the library really is considering it's been out for as long as it has. Also why would anybody buy any of the $40+ games when they're free after a few weeks anyway? lmao i probably wont buy Killzone cause it'll just be free or discounted to 10 dollars 3 weeks after launch. I spent 40 bucks on Uncharted, Gravity Rush, and WipEout just to have them go free. Kinda grinded my gears XD
Anyone seen those new screenshots from some Russian magazine or some shit. http://www.ppe.pl/news-2044... Holy Fuck this game looks amazing on the Vita. I cannot wait to play this crap. If it looks half as good as those screenshots I will pee myself in excitement. I already have my money saved for all these upcoming Vita games, a good start for 2013 for the Vita if you ask me. It's far from dead. It is just getting started!
That's not russian, it's polish. Anyway, good screens but tiny.
Well I said "or some shit" For not even knowing Russian hey at least I was close.. I know the polish are around there some what close region wise. So I just took a stab in the dark but I knew that it could have been something else, just described it as familiar as I had known which it looked Russian to me.
I think that you all have forgotten how horrible Killzone 3 was. It had good graphics and that was about all it had going for it.
Killzone 3 was fine, it was just not as good as Killzone 2.
