It seems Official Killzone twitter account is up to something
Awesome, I'm up for some more Killzone
It has Valor in his eyes. What can it be?
i want horizon!!
That could also be the Roman Numeral Five. Not including Liberation on the PSP and Mercenary on the Vita, there have been Four main Killzone titles to date. The next would be Five. Then again they could be hinting that Shadow Fall or Mercenary will be free to Plus members in March. @Emrage, I am not sure it would be that either but the fact is the title has been out for some time now. It isn't as if it was released yesterday. I would prefer it to be a new title of some type but that Helghast is a model from Shadow Fall.
@morganfell I don't think Shadow Fall will be free in march because like 3 million people bought it and thats a lot and that will result in 3 million people dissapointent i except knack to be free.
mercs2!! mercs was the best KZ online MP to date imo. hell one of my fav online FPS next to cod4 and halo2. its undeniably fun and awesome/ addicting. would be cool for PS4 but i think mercs2 would be for vita, mercs1 has been at the top of the most DLed list for like 2 years now so im sure they made out well with sales. i wouldnt doubt it has a higher attachment rate on vita than ps4 considering ps4 has a lot more fps to choose from and KZmercs is the best looking and playing game avalible on the vita. if anything, i hope its more DLC for KZmercs, i can use some more guns and stuffs :p.
Come on people, get with the program...it's the Killzone Collection, something that everyone should be used to by now.
Just want to point out that Shadow Fall is free for Japanese Plus members.
I would love to play killzone 2 in 1080p 60fps and higher quality assets!
Would be awesome to play as a Helghan protagonist, Maybe as Maya Visari. A Killzone that shows Helghans fighting against their government with the aid of the VSA maybe?
I have always hoped for a Helghast pure campaign. Not one of these like the situation with Echo or the earlier one with Colonel Hakha where they are sympathetic to Vekta. But one where we see Helghast as wrongly exiled people and your goal is to wholly support the war effort against Vekta. Be the bad guy. Not a Helghast that suddenly grows a conscience because you realize the leaders of Helghan are up to no good, but instead be the bad guy. Before Shadow Fall was announced I was hoping that the lead character would be Visari's daughter. Not the one we saw in Shadow Fall but instead a brutal and relentless strike team leader returning from combat in the polar regions to avenge her father's death.
Yea they still have to do that before anything. But good gosh PLEASEEE can we get a good writter with some GOOD scripting and a story that makes you go WOOOH WTF, CRAZY, this is GENIUS! Just invest in it GG pleasssse. We need some great gameplay too tho, we want both!
Me too, Killzone is awesome! I hope Guerrilla Cambridge are making a KZ Mercenary game for PS4, like Media Molecule are doing Tearaway Unfolded from the vita release. Whether it's an outright sequel, or a remake, expanded retelling of the vita game, with an evolution from the assets used in Shadow Fall. Shadow Fall was quality, it's a highly underrated game IMO.
Killzone 4 February 2016
Whatever the next Killzone is, it's likely coming this year, ever since KZ2 there has been a Killzone game released every 2 years. On PS3 KZ was a Feb release, Shadow Fall came out in November, so it seems likely that whatever the next KZ game is, it will be out November this year. Personally I hope it's a Mercenary game, for PS4, I think that would be awesome. Sony could do with an exclusive FPS in their line-up this year. Bring on the AAA, Guerrilla Cambridge Killzone PS4 release I say!
Could be called Killzone 5. If you look in the Helgasts eyes you see V's.
mercenary 2 would be so rad. would not mind another ps4 title either.
Hopefully it's Killzone Mercenary 2 for the Vita!
Wow, it sure seems that way. I want that mecha-dinosaur game, though.
E3 or next big event
I'd say this E3. New IPs need more time to breath at first because you're describing a new universe, new characters, new storylines, potentially new combat mechanics..etc. Sequels are built on foundations and can be shown, then released within a calender year. But new IPs require alot of build up, so I hope they bring it to E3 this year, make sure it gets the exposure it needs.
@Outthink_The_Room: Technically Knack and Driveclub were new IPs, they were announced in Feb 2013 and while Driveclub was pushed back, it was initially planned to launch within 2013. Bloodborne was only announced at last year's E3, that's a new IP and it's coming out 9 months after it's announcement, so Horizon could be officially announced at Sony's Event on Friday, or their GDC presentation. On Friday Sony are announcing a new Playstation initiative, while it's widely believed to be a unification of media streaming features, like rolling TV/Movies, Music and Game Streaming into a Playstation focused service, that could require some hefty investment in dedicated servers. With Guerrilla Game's "Codename Horizon" title rumored to be a huge open world RPG, with some potentially big online components, maybe this will be Sony's big game to launch the service globally on Playstation by the end of the year. By the sounds of it Horizon has a pretty distinct kind of world and lead character, the concept has been very well received by most people that have heard about it, so I think it would be a pretty easy sell for Sony inside of a year. With the kind of revenue and profits that streaming is going to generate in the future a huge network of Dedicated Servers would be fully justified and expanding PS Now would also make sense as an investment for Sony. Either way new IPs can definitely be announced mere months from release, rather than years, provided the game is marketed enough and as a publisher you get the ideas surrounding it across to the target audience and build big enough hype sales can be had. Personally I think announcing a game and then leaving it too long before release can kill hype of a new IP pretty easily. As a publisher if you wait until the game's at least in Beta before announcing it, the you show enough gameplay, you control the marketing better, you can hit the public with hype and not give them time to doubt the title. Either it's announced at one of the close events and it releases this year or it's a big surprise at Sony's E3 and it launches in the 1st half of 2016, alongside God of War, with GOW being a March release (that seems to be GOW's month for releasing). It's possible Sony will hold it back until Fall 2016. GT7 should hopefully be this year, probably December, maybe that and Horizon will be officially unveiled on Friday and Sony uses them as a way to show off the new dedicated servers on Playstation.
Perhaps both will come. Horizon likely will take longer to develop. As all RPGs should anyway. :)
Oh my goooooooooooooooodddddddddddd https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Please be a new ZoneKill
I really hope its a Mercenary 2. Maybe they can tease it mor ein the coming months with a Demo at e3? Make it happen shu. Im up to the top with shooters on the ps4 with bf4 and halo being my go to games. Killzone on a portable has proven to makes sense
Agree with u all a KZ mercenary 2 would be nice or maybe a completely new stand alone DLC game like infamous first light for ps4 would also be cool.
I'm seeing the Valor V in that guy's eyes. Is that normal? I don't recall ever seeing that on a Helghast helmet. I'm guessing a new Killzone from Guerrilla Cambridge. Possibly on PS4. Actually, my bet is on Mercenary Remastered for PS4. Easily one of the best FPS's in recent years.
I hope it's not KZ:SF dlc, and I love all KZ! Remaster KZ 1,2,3 for PS4? Merc2 on PS4 would be killer!
Ooooh mystery ...a new KZ game or remaster? ..either way ;)
couldnt this just be an acknowledgement that it's the tenth anniversary of the series? I'll laugh if it turns out to be an HD version of the first game. Man, that was an awful game.
you mean an hd version of the first game that came out two and a half years ago? i played the hd version of the first game and i agree to it not aging well, but i wouldnt consider it bad for a 10+ year old game
Hard to believe that there's anything in the works for Killzone beyond a quick Vita game. That alone would shock me, but Mercenaries was a decent handheld shooter – the only one in my experience.
I'd like a sequel to the ACTUAL Mercenaries series. Man, Playground of Destruction was brilliant.
Probably a triple Valor weekend , lol. Dedicated servers , a patch for better framerates , and fix the hitching problems on the new maps would make me very happy. They designed a terrific multiplayer (total crack) , but they built in on such a poor foundation.
We want the old Killzone back with a real warzone. Grundge and death all around. Soldiers, huge battles, and large open MP maps.
pyrius rise was one of my favorites and id love to see it again. maybe in a slightly smaller scale though
Vektan currency symbol. "For the money" Please be Mercenary 2, or a port of Mercenary to PS4 would be nice.
I have yet to play Shadow Fall. But I hope they go back to the weight and feel of Killzone 2. Which was lost in KZ3. Even Though I enjoyed KZ3 it lost what made Killzone 2 stand out from all the other FPS games.
^ This! I'm so with you!
The actual Killzone 4 perhaps?
It's just the Weekly Valor challenge.
That picture is my wallpaper, love this franchise.
Dont they still have 2 more title updates for KZ Shadow Fall? Pretty sure they've only released 4 of the six payed DLC.
According to NeoGAF, it's just the Vanguard challenges for Mercenary. Nothing spectacular.
i would much rather see a new ip. The last game was a success in terms of sales, but the game was mediocre at best. Ill get a ton of hate for this comment i'm sure but its the truth.
Double Valor weekend whoopty doo
That's the vektan dollar symbol in his eyes...possibly kz mercenary 2 or maybe an hd remake?
Judging by this im gonna say that its another killzone title for the vita. Don't think it will be called mercenary 2, doubt its for the ps4
It's confirmed it is just another 2x Valor event for Killzone Shadowfall's online multiplayer.
I would actually like a Remaster of KZ2. I enjoyed that one the most. Improved textures/shaders. 60fps 1080p or close to.
Sony is done investing AAA ressources in the Vita. It will remain a niche console that sells based on its PS4 connectivity and cult japanese titles. I'd be shocked if they wasted their time putting out a new KZ for the Vita.
Its the PS4 game that Guerrilla Cambridge is making
Its double valor for playstation plus open weekend.
It's just double valor. :(
Man.... just focus on the new game with the dino mechs!
