ALT+F4 reports. "The KZ2 DLC has been revealed tonight and it's a map pack entitled Steel & Titanium. There will be two new maps in the pack"
Both look really cool, new sun seemed really big from the screens. He hinted at new features after this DLC, so vehicle plox.
First of all, if you say "plox" you sound like a [email protected] On Topic: The level on the carriers looks AWESOME! The GG guy said in future DLC they will be adding new features so that could mean a Party-System, Tournaments, Vehicles or maybe even Co-Op! He also said that "the next map pack will have the word 'retro' in it." Keighley replied with "So maybe some maps from Killzone?" and the GG guy said "EXACTLY!" KillZone for PS2 had some awesome MP maps. Can't wait for that DLC!
Are they free?
What map pack has ever been free? Employees don't get paid with food stamps ya know.
Halo maps have been free, the gears of war map pack were free. Theres lots of free dlc. Hopefully these are too , would suck if the 500k people who bought the game get ripped off by dlc that coulda been in the disk, its only been a month since the game came out they seriously couldnt fit it in the bluray ?
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 had free maps (great game). Also, recently, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3. Free is good.
Are they free or not? There have been plenty of free map packs for alot of games so I don't know what you're talking about.
"What map pack has ever been free? Employees don't get paid with food stamps ya know." UT3 Titan pack, anyone?
@socomnick, @kigmal Glad you just woke up from a coma...there's something called DLC introduced by Microsoft some years ago... Halo 2 maps were for free, yes, but after 6 months, during that time you couldn't play som matchmaking lists because those maps were required nor join your friends in custom matches which forced you to buy the maps...well worth it anyway, I never thought they were expensive Halo 2 was an amazing online experience, unmatched even today by most of the games About R6V2...well, the game itself was an expansion pack rather than a new game so of course you have to keep the interest alive...if they had tried to sell DLC for that "game" I'm sure gamers would have sued Ubisoft and stone them to death... I'm ok with DLC for Killzone 2 and looking forward to new features...the game is awesome
Especially since I don't pay to play the game online as it is. PSN is free so paying a couple bucks for a great game's extra content is no problem. Free content on an MS exclusive online game is a no brainer since we already have to pay to play online with Live.
LOL, funny how the people who put their life on xbl keep emphasizing the word "free". LOL U GUYS HAVE BEEN PAYING FOR a P2P service for 3 years now. LOL dont be douchebags
I don't really wanna start any trouble, but I gotta ask... Where are all the fanboys who hated on 360 games for getting downloadable content? Saying it was because it couldn't fit on the disc. DLC is just another step games are taking into the future. People should quit hating on things that look strange to them.
Thats socomnick for you, one of the legendary fans of the 360. He has the fan boy sight and we know how unhealthy that is. Anyways, maps look pro, dc if i have to pay.
Oh now I get it everything is bad. Unless it is for PS3!
NO, no, no. you got it all wrong. hdmi is bad wifi is bad hdd is bad. remember bill gates your master said it himself. UNTIL HE STARTED CHARGING YOU 4 THEM..
while we think that WII owners are stupid for being duped into buying gamecube 1.5 for $250, a lot of PC gamers will think all console owners are stupid for allowing publishers to exploit us with DLC. Expansions on this scale used to be FREE before M$ & sony started this crap THE GAME HAS NOT EVEN BEEN OUT FOR 2 MONTHS!!! I know HD gaming isn't cheap but spare us a thought once in a while
With no games to play, nothing to look forward to, and I truly do mean absolutely nothing. He still finds his silver lining in life, which is to try to pretend there is something wrong with sony/dlc/paid, when he pays for free peer-to-peer gaming still. $900 for wifi, and another $450 dollars for a 3gig hdd,another 90 for batteries, and till cant play UT3 mods either. I think we could all learn something from socomnick. Thats some brutal dedication. Socomnick, I tip my hat to you sir. You can do no wrong in my eyes.
Tournaments area already part of KZ2... they've been there since day one..
I meant like big time tournaments. Tournaments with awards/prizes and stuff.
will be excited to hear about the possibility of KZ1 maps coming in the next pack. I know I'm excited!
These two new maps look awesome especially the one with the trains. I love it when maps have inherent dangers. It kinda reminds me of the gears map with the train, can't recall the name. Anyways I can't wait these are going to be so fun. It will also bring a nice breath of fresh air to the multiplayer and mix it up a bit (I'll still be addicted no matter what though ...). It's also great news that the second map pack will be a retro pack with some old killzone 1 maps. oooo i can't wait ...
was seriously one of the best MP maps ever, haha. Can't wait to see what happens with that.
saw video love it can't wait for speeding train map...ahhhh can it come soon ,two more weeks :)
Screenshots? Video? What are people talking about? All three links are just text for me..
You can see the video of the new map gameplay on GameTrailers.com on the GTTV section.
Mildly disappointed, but atleast it isn't utter crap maps. The New Sun looks the best of the two, while the Map Pack 2 hopefully is even Greater. Which it has to be. The originals maps were Awesome, and in full HD? Perfect.
In fact it was discovered that it was not even 720P so don't even try it! If you want to see 1080P most games released this year on the 360 are 1080p NOT PS3. In fact they first 1080p game was suppose to be Virtual Tennis for PS3 except because of development difficultly it came out 1080p on xbox360 first.
delusional he's only saying that the "old" maps would be great to see in HD now.
"a map featuring 2 Helghan trains running right next to each other with environmental gotchas if you're in the wrong place at the wrong time." Can't wait for all this.
You serious? I don't have cable so I missed it. I sure hope its free. No cable --> Poor Poor --> hoping for free DLC. Edit: I fixed the "POO" too "Poor"..im half awake..
makes it sound like a gears 1 map!
There was a train section in KZ2 single player campaign, so it's likely derived from that.
Yeah, that train map looks sick. I'll check these out if they're free.
was expecting a little more than those maps. . .but,its k :D i'll still eat it all up,but I'll be waiting for seconds,GG lol
YES!!! im stoked.Time to get my skills back up to par.I put killzone down for a bit(120+hrs online) but i always knew i would be back.=)
the first thing i'm going to do when i get theses maps is run straight towards a train and get hit by it lol
I'm not really tired of the maps yet, so I don't really care. New weapons? New ribbons? A party system? Things like that are what I'm looking for. I will probably pick these up, but not for a while.
Why? What happened to playing a game for the fun of it and not some stupid little virtual medal? I blame CoD4 for this silly trend. Killzone 2 is good enough to play without needing to feel like I achieved something worthless in game.
I really want this game... but i couldn't stand the gameplay when my friend brought it over. I'm still wishing for another gameplay tweak patch.. I'll stick to socom till then.
The primary reason alot of people can't "Aim" correctly is... They use Scope over Hipfire, which is why they die so frequently. Scope is only for Medium to Long Range targets. Otherwise a few accurate bursts from the hip will drop someone very quickly. --- Secondly, The primary reason why people don't understand the tactical side of the game, is that they play 32 player matches. Go play an 8 player game and the team-work increases Exponentially. Trust me. Do these two things and call me in the morning. I bet your view changes.
hopefully it's free to 5 bukz
the ONLY 2 dissapointing things I can say about KZ2 is 1) no co-op and 2) came with few MP maps.but. . .believe me,the game. . .makes up for it with all the great things in it.though,the only reason I think the maps should be free. . .is cuz it shipped with so few,and both are taken from the SP game.but woa,I cant wait to get the 'retro' pack.I loved KZ1 maps!
This is just an appetiser..mmm
I'm really disappointed to be honest. I was really hoping for more weapons, classes, party system, and increasing the ranking system. Trophies for the DLC I hope is still going to be implemented. 2 new maps isn't enough to reinvigorate my addiction to this game. I hope for GG's sake these 2 maps are free, because I won't pay any amount of money for just 2 maps. 4 is the least I'll pay for if it's just maps, and the only exception I made was in COD4.
you're crazy for expecting too much.. the game has only been out for a full month and you're asking for something that changes the gameplay? I would expect them to change something somewhere between here and 6 months down the road but other than that, I'll be expecting maps and little upgrades for player's convenient..
I really think you expected too much for a dlc announcement shortly after its release. These maps might cost money, but if they are free cool. I see them raising the level cap via patch, not thru dlc so everyone can experience it. Kinda how they added the superhuman co op mode for Resistance 2 through a patch
man i dont want there to be new maps yet i know im the wet blanket but its kinda barrier to entry when you first get it trying to buy that sht to catch up or you feel dumb if you buy it too soon and no one buys it for mad long and later on no one buys it cuz ppl dont rave about how good the maps are and ppl dont like it i hope they wait until like xmas or sept
I was hoping for more maps, but two would do for now. Here is hoping they increase the level caps as well as increase the badges for every class to provide more depth.
so where are the screens/videos people are talking about?
halo map packs being free lol people aren't even aloud to play online without even download the first few and paying for it so no halo map packs are not free nice try kid lol
some reason today just feels like killzone is running alot smoother online anyone notice that?
... seemed the same. Maybe a teeny bit smoother, or maybe I was just getting a lot of kills today, so I didn't pay much attention. The MP for this game is sick! Can't wait for new maps... Probably have to buy them though. I'm cool with it, I didn't have to buy the COD4 map pack!
A Map Pack is pretty much what I expected. For those asking for more weapons, I highly doubt it, but maybe it's possible, but for now, I'm satisfied with the weapons in the game. "Oh yes, Guerrilla is working on map pack 2 already and the word to think about is "Retro." That has to mean some Killzone 1 maps in KZ2.... My guess is that all of the maps from Killzone 1 might make it into Killzone 2 except for the Jungle Map because it would be a little too colorful for Killzone 2's Helghan Environment. I really love the Indoor/Urban Environment Maps in Killzone 1 and definantly hope to see them in KZ2....I'm thinking that the 2nd DLC announcement will happen at E3.
Looking pretty good just hoping they don't go over board with the pricing. 3.99 to 4.99 looks about right for this anymore would be pushing it. The retro pack sounds promising though, fighting at the Vektan Beach in HD would be sweeeeet.
'Gears of War 2' DLC Map Pack - 'Bugs & More Bugs' ;-D
lol good one kutaragi :P
So looking forward to it, hopefully they scale it and make it bigger, my memory is bad right now, but i don't recall the stage being too huge
brutal as hell, and something very new for online map
no way ill pay more than 5eu for those two new maps! it better be free...
Niiiiiceeeee, that's what I want to heard.
I hope these map packs are free. The problem with putting pricing on map packs is you break apart your community.
It'll probably come in at $5.99 USD just like the Resistance 2 maps.
They already announced the second map pack already, so maybe it will come out next month? I know this probably wont happen, but I think everyone would agree that it would be crazy awesome to release two maps at the end of every month! Even if they were like $2 a pack. That could help fund Kz3 and make the game a monster. That means that by the end of the year we would have 26 maps! Or release something similar to Epic's tools for UT3 and people could make their own maps! And they could be downloaded like the Little big planet levels! Omg I know my ideas are probably far from reality, but that would be awesome. What do you guys think?
Your theory is insane. If they made those feature you say for killzone 2 this game could have a change to be played for a loooooooooong time.
And the DUAL HELGHAN trains is freakin EPIC!!! Can't wait!
Free Map Pack then Killzone 1 Map pack = $$. T That would nice and it only divides the community once. Also if you give something for free, you get more people interested in acutally BUYING something else.
woah.. train map. talk about "different" in the usual multiplayer fps maps. Pretty awesome.
