Killzone: Mercenary – new gameplay footage

Killzone: Mercenary may have the graphical grunt Vita owners have been waiting for. Forget cinematics and check out the Helghast doing their thing in-game in this new footage.

The story is too old to be commented.
LOGICWINS2145d ago

I didn't believe that this would be on par with Killzone 3 graphically, then I see this. ASTOUNDING!

The_Devil_Hunter2145d ago

Me TOO! I just dont want to wait until SeptEMBER!!

blitz06232145d ago

There is only 1 thing I hate about this game.
Its release date :(

BrunoM2145d ago

Holy fuk these is Going to be the standard to any fps on any portable system for sure ... Looks fun would love to see some MP

Divine2145d ago

This is "Quality" . this is a trueee "next generation" portable. I think we can all agree that this game looks better than "everything" on the past gen wii u. Why waste time and currency on a wii u when you can get a vita with quality far superior to that of the wii u. The wii u can't compare or live up to such standards and its supposed to be a console? I cant wait for this game and i will have it at release some way or another Its amazing. . .

lol it's not on par with killzone 3 gfx nor even killzone 2 ...let's not say things that are not true

but i will say this
it's the best looking hand-held game i have ever seen

MastaMold2145d ago

Killzone fan here, seriously I cant wait

Sent from my PS Vita

morganfell2145d ago games are the future....

Where are the people that were making those statements?


The name of this game says it all. The series has proven itself in terms of graphics on any "KILL ZONE"

- Medium "kill zone" ( on regular TVs with Killzone 2 on PS2) --> Check

- Large "kill zone" (on FULL HD TVs with Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 on PS3) --> Check

- Tiny "kill zone" (on 5 inches OLED screen with Killzone Mercenary on PS Vita) --> Check

- Ultra large "kill zone" (on Ultra HD TVs with Killzone 4 on PS4) --> NO NEED to check

"lol it's not on par with killzone 3 gfx nor even killzone 2 ...let's not say things that are not true"

But it CAN be. Remember, the game doesn't come out till September.

BattleAxe2145d ago

I think I finally know when I'll be picking up a Playstation Vita :D

kupomogli2144d ago (Edited 2144d ago )


I'm not a fan of Nintendo either, but your comment makes Playstation fans look bad.

Killzone Mercenary isn't better looking than everything on the Wii U. It's not even the best looking Vita game. Does Uncharted Golden Abyss no longer exist? Killzone Mercenaries has a massive lack of detail and poor textures in comparison to Golden Abyss.

X or Xenoblade 2's recent trailer for the Wii U looks amazing and if graphics really mean that much to you, then it puts Killzone Mercenaries to shame. This and Super Smash Bros are the reason I'm going to pick up a Wii U in the future. Well. That and the fact that I passed on the Wii so I'll use it for WIi games as well. MY

Not only that. Black Ops 2's graphics put those Killzone Mercenaries graphics to shame. Doesn't mean Mercenaries isn't going to be better. Black Ops 2's story mode was awful. Who plays Call of Duty for story anyways?

specialguest2144d ago (Edited 2144d ago )

That is some really nice graphics. When watching the video, I didn't realized I had the res at 360p, yet I thought it was good for a handheld. After changing the youtube res to 720p, it was simply amazing.

The only thing that seems to not be on the same level are all of that post-processing effects from the KZ console games. However, the game is still being developed and all of that might be added later.

Septic2144d ago

Looks incredible.

The crotch takedown.....ouch!

Irishguy952144d ago

Kupo...try not to use logic or anything here. Most people on this site can't even see the difference between Golden Abyss and Uncharted 1( which is extremely noticable). Just....say something to please people like

"Wow this was amazing, Ps3 game in my hands"

Even though your just sorta disrespecting the console version when you say that.

insomnium22144d ago

I think this Irishguy kid (I say kid cause of the 95) has some attitude problems. I cannot understand why anyone would come on this site at all if they hated it like this guy seems to do.

Ontopic. This game looks badass.

starchild2144d ago

Yeah, imagine what these guys could accomplish on the PS4!

While not really up to the level of Killzone 3 or Killzone 2, it does look fairly close in a general way and is an astounding bar-raising accomplishment for handheld graphics.

Rush2144d ago (Edited 2144d ago )

Am sorry but doesn't look nearly as good as KZ2 or 3 everything is far lower res, it looks amazing for a mobile platform game but come on you guys are lying to yourselves if you think it compares to the latest console shooters.

Not that I expect any common sense from this community, but stop bigging it up for something it's not.

OMG... This is the Vita. OMG

The_Devil_Hunter2145d ago

Finally some real FPS action in my hands!

Pixel_Enemy2145d ago

Exactly... Tried Resistance and COD for vita and both sucked. Killzone looks like it won't be dropping the ball but setting the bar instead.

UltraVegito2145d ago


Was abit skeptical about this but just,hot damn.

gaffyh2144d ago

Same here, i was expecting a lazy port like COD BLOPS but this looks incredible, definitely buying this.

adorie2145d ago

I hate the over-used word "amazing" mainly because Kim Kardashian throws it around and comes off as generic, Also because of romance-comedies,however..

My point is the graphics displayed here for Kill Zone:Mercenaries is just that. Amazing. I think this game has the graphics crown for fully blown hand-held game and even puts some console games to shame. LOL!

I didn't know the vita was this capable. Now. I do.

a_bro2145d ago

i guess you havent seen the MGS4 cutscene running on the vita....

clearelite2145d ago (Edited 2145d ago )

Sony (and Guerilla Cambridge) has me thoroughly surprised. Hopefully they will surprise me again by marketing the heck out of it, which would probably guarantee Vita's success, and provide us with lots of people to play online for a long time.

I wanted to be mad at you for mentioning so and so, however, your comment is spot on.

Snookies122144d ago

@a_bro - Ah, sorry about that, meant to put an agree, but I accidentally hit disagree. Curse N4G for not letting you change that...

Man though, if anyone can do something beyond belief it's Kojima. Watch him put out an MGS game on Vita that rivals MGS4 in graphics. Not to say Killzone isn't amazing looking. It really is for a handheld. However, I'm sure the Vita can be pushed even further.

skyrimer2144d ago

I couldn't agree more. Suddenly Phantom Pain on Vita doesn't look impossible anymore.

If prior KZ entries offered the kind of gameplay this one suggest, occasional options in a fight instead of raging firefights, the series would be regarded higher than it is.

TheUndertaker852144d ago

It's called advancement. Some games do that you know. If past KZ games did what this one does, others like you would be bitching that it didn't do something newer.

MrCrimson2144d ago

I just hate shooters that run at 30FPS.

kikizoo2144d ago (Edited 2144d ago )

it's not on par with the ps3 masterpiece (if you can see the games on the same screen), but better than anything on others consoles.

shackdaddy2144d ago

It looks amazing for a portable game but not even close to KZ3 imo.

Its like every since the famous CG video Guerilla games has something to prove. Every Game since then looks amazing.

The_Devil_Hunter2145d ago

Too bad they cant hear you all the way down there making mobile games! Lol.

solidjun52145d ago

Holy Cow Batman, this looks good!
