Behind every great shooter is great multiplayer, and Killzone 2, Sony's upcoming PS3-exclusive FPS, is no different. Here, in VideoGamer.com's Killzone 2 - What is Warzone? feature, it dishes the dirt on the game's multiplayer classes and modes.
Well well, Killzone 2 has been getting a lot of love from Videogamer :P I am guessing Killzone 2 will be getting another 9.5/10 from them.
The Best Shooter You'll Play in 2009. Period.
Unless you don't have a ps3 ;)
Sounds like a hell of a fun. Can't wait.
this looks like it will replace my love for cod4. u heard me cod4! CODWAW sucks really hard. kz2 ftmfw!
My guess is there is a lot of players that start in multiplayer and beef up the skills they need and a couple weeks later get around to whatever campaign mode there is. I'm really not fond of multiplayer shooters because I swear some players do this and by the time I finish the story mode (which usually takes me a little bit of time because I can't play all day or everyday) and get into trying the multiplayer I'm so far below everybody's skill level it seems the games aren't fun because I get killed so frequently and quickly :) Edit: SAiOSiN, Fishy Fingers, and Nineball2112 it looks like I can cross you all off my list of revenge on people who have taken advantge of my single player appreciation. See you online :)
i always play sp b4 mp. i need the figure out the feel of the game, the controls, and the strategies that i can use later in mp. the only sp i skipped was codwaw. i went straight to mp, and well i was very disappointed. sold the game last week. i still play a lot of cod4. i just want k2 to surpass cod4 in every way possible so that will be my main gaming priority.
Personally I never touch MP until I've had my fill of SP. I hate jumping on MP and seeing all the weapons/tools before they're introduced properly in SP. Plus, it's good training, I know people who have missed gameplay mechanics completely because they jumped straight on MP and werent introduced to them via SP experience. Each to their own of course. But I'm still a big fan of story and SP in general. Few blasts through (good training), then hit MP until my eyes bleed :)
for a while now. I agree with you guys above me. I normally always play through the SP campaign first for the same reasons listed above: Feel of the weapons Gameplay strategy Getting used to the controls But with the ranking system in KZ2, I think I'll be at an even bigger disadvantage than I usually am. Those perks that you get the higher in class you are... are extremely valuable. However, I think there's a way to filter who you play against, so you won't get slaughtered by someone who is WAY above you in rank. If that's true... then I'll probably still play through the SP first. Anyone know 100% for sure?
Good point. I usually play single player to hone my skills, but by the time the game is done the people playing MP will be higher ranked and owning me. I might take a different approach to this one because I plan on playing a lot of MP.
Yeah, you can filter/search for/by.. Rank Player count Map Latency/Ping Game Type etc etc (or any combination of the above) You can specify exactly and find just what YOU want to play. No matchmaking here, you decide whats best for you, just how it should be, picking from a list.
Thanks for the info., bro. (Hey, that rhymed!) That makes my decision easier. I'll probably stick to my strategy of playing the SP first then. The MP for this game won't be going anywhere! LOL... I'm sure it'll be around when I'm done with the SP.
I usually play the single player campaign first to get a good feel for the controls then jump into multiplayer.
just get the demo and you'll have plenty of time to bone up on your MP skills, and learn a map or two. And when the game drops play SP, then once finished jump onto the MP and your skills will be a tighter than what they would have. (this is assuming the demo as an MP element, but even if it doesn't you can still get a feel for the controls in what ever level is included)
i was in the beta so im going straight into the MP! you guys are going to get killzowned! rank ^
I'm Aussie, ao I get the game 2 days before most of you. I figure a 40 hour stint, and I'll be invincible by the time you get in and I'll slaughter you all. MUHAHAHA. Just kidding, I'm all about the single player, I dont even play online, but I might have a go of Killzone, I love the idea of mixing the different badges. Plus I feel like a bit of a heel, I have a friends list and keep getting invites but never play.
Well I'm from EU so I'll do what bathyj is going to do ;). By the time the "yanks" come in we europeans will be hardened veterans :P.
Yeah i always make sure i finish the single player part of all my games before i jump into anything multiplayer.
there are like "begginers only" rooms that i played in the beta but i dont know if it has been changed for the final code
Warzone is like coming home from a hard day at work to find your wife having sex with someone else. Only then to see another beautiful woman is the one she's with and then they ask you what are you waiting for? Warzone is just like that you get in and it's insane at first then once you get the hang of it it throws you a curveball. Once you ge the hang of that it does it again. It's a blast and I loved every second. What does that have to do with your wife in bed with a sexy woman? Hell if I know but both sound really fun to me.
LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sounds fun to me too!
I'll triple that. Sound very pleasing to me also.
so its basically all the game modes stringed togherter what you can play without leaving the game or entering a lobby. cool. only problem i can see with this is that say for example the ISA just won a search and retrieve and then it switches to deathmatch everyone will be stood practically next to everyone for a bit
Yep, exactly right, game modes just roll in seemlessly, or by the host/leaders request. But the plus point totally out weight any possible negatives. Imagine a server with 20 people playing Body Count (deathmatch) suddenly a bunch leave, your down to 8 player on a huge map, your not going to see many people or be involved in any decent fire fights, host/leader can instantly switch to Search and Retrive (or similar) and suddenly you all know where the enemies will be. It's really a fantastic set-up, the only downside I found is time, before you know it you've been sat there for several hours thinking you've been there 20 minutes (LOL... not really a downside).
"only problem i can see with this is that say for example the ISA just won a search and retrieve and then it switches to deathmatch everyone will be stood practically next to everyone for a bit" Problem? Hell, that sounds like a blast! Yeah, I'd get slaughtered, but I'd be laughing my @ss off the whole time. It'd be freakin' chaotic! Hahaha....
Went into Zavvi today you can get a PS3 80 GIG for £249.99, anybody that doesn't have PS3 should check them out if you want to play this game. Looking better everyday.
cant wait to play it, its just too bad ill be in basic training when it comes out and ill have to wait till june to get it. :(
Killzone 2 should be part of Basic Training ;)
Sucks for you
Sucks to be you mate. No body should miss out on this awesomeness.
haha that would be cool if killzone was part of basic lol but it will be alright cause i dont think that ill have the time to wish i was playing you know?
this is the kind of game that makes you proud to be a gamer.
Im glad i have a PS3 and ill get KZ2. Im sad for the xbots...
I just hope the point system is not too slow; as a sniper who does not have enough time to earn a ridiculous amount of points, a slow point system may keep me from picking up the game. The game looks awesome though.
Maybe you should play as another class to point up THEN go into sniper mode. I usually do that (like I do in every FPS that has the option) just so I can unlock the more powerful sniper weapons. Starter sniper weapons are weak IMO.
Seeing that you don't become a sniper until the General rank will probably not sit well with you.
in the beta the point system was EXTREMELY EASY it took me only 15 hours to get to General the highest rank
sounds like COD4-killer material here.... CAN'T WAIT!!!
Can't wait to get back into some KZ2 multiplayer. I was obsessed with the beta.
Funny thing is the beta was what 500mb or so. That was the compressed version and it played and looked better than most retail games lol. I can't wait for the full thing, it's so going to own.
I'm more excited about my preorder demo than the actual game. Speaking of demos, anyone know if the Qore & PSN F.E.A.R 2 demos are the same? I played the Qore version.
