Killzone: Who is Alpha Team?

Killzone writes: "When the dust had settled after the Helghast invasion of Vekta was beaten back, most of the ISA Armed Forces lay in shattered ruins. Caught by surprise and subjected to months of high intensity combat, few ISA units were organized by the book when the fighting stopped. Losses were particularly high amongst Captain Templar's old unit - the Rapid Reaction Force - which had to be disbanded.

As the senior surviving RRF officer, and hero of the defense of Vekta, Captain Templar was promoted to colonel and given the task of rebuilding ISA Vekta's Special Forces. He was told to place special attention on the reliability of the men he picked - Vekta had suffered enough from traitors in her ranks. Fortunately the invasion had created a ready supply of young combat veterans with revenge against the Helghast as their primary motivation."

Hah, getting more pumped for this game and the story.

flambeau3794d ago

That's pretty cool of Guerrilla to include a back story, helps me out cause I didn't play the first one.

This game is going to be amazing,I know the gameplay isn't anything innovative,but that doesn't mean it's going to be bad,and we've all seen the visuals,yum =D

Story sounds pretty generic, hopefully the Killzone2 has something more storywise than Helghast are evil.

vlazed3793d ago

The first two games were interesting and subtly nuanced and I don't see Killzone 2 being that different.

Baka-akaB3793d ago

well it already did on ps2 and psp from what i saw .

RadientFlux3793d ago (Edited 3793d ago )

I never did play the psp killzone game (or own a psp).

Though from my one play though of Killzone (ps2) I found the storyline to be really lacking. While they did get some great voice actors for the roles I was disappointed in the end.

Edit for beavis4play : Well I did play the original Killzone a few years back and was really unimpressed with both the storyline and game. So that might be the reason for my negative thoughts towards the storytelling of series in general. Though I do have high hopes for the sequel.

Edit Edit : Sorry but if you play as many games as I do. It's hard to be remember every storyline detail from a game that I found mediocre back in 2003.

for anyone who is following it, i'm sure they are looking forward to part 2.

and radiantflux, the story isn't "helghast are evil". that's too simple. they helghast believe they are the rightful owners of veckta. nobody knows yet the real truth. it could end up that the ISA are actually in the wrong.
you really should play the past games before making vague statements.

edit: at above, no offense but for someone who says you played KZ1, you sure are vague on details of story and why you didn't like it. plus, why in post 3 did you sum it up as "helghast are evil"? there is clearly more to it. if you did play you'd have to see that?

Time_Is_On_My_Side3793d ago (Edited 3793d ago )

It was actually said in Killzone 1 from Stuart Adams that the Helghast believe the humans are the invaders. Even though the Helghast were once human until a group of them landed on Helgan that morphed their bodies (to a point they're not called human anymore) the way you see them today.

Anything can happen here and I also heard that there might be a third faction.
