As well as the recently-announced double XP weekend, Sony and Guerrilla will celebrate the fifth birthday of the Killzone series with a DLC giveaway.
I won't be getting that. Killzone isn't as great as it was meant to be...
You're right Killzone wasn't as great. Killzone 2 is a lot of better. I have the 6 DLC maps. They are very good, but Flash and Thunder is AWESOME. Kz2 is the best FPS in this generation but people crying about the controls better go and play MW 1.1..............KZ2 IS FOR MEN "NOT BABIES ALLOWED". I'm joking.
They are not expensive to begin with. Buy them mofoes!!. There are very few that are playing the DLC's, it's a shame...
Sadly I still won't bother as, for me, KZ2 died the day GG gave in to the COD babies who didn't want to have to learn anything new ever. NOTHING is too generic for these people and GG should have told them to sod off as it was clear they'd jump ship whenever more of their aim assist floaty nonsense reappeared. If only it was still like the beta with everyone using controls which fabour skill aboce pick up and play and a learning curve above feeling like you're as good as you're gonna be after a day or so. Why do people want every shooter to control the same? Why would every game feeling the same be a good thing? The day GG released the alternative control patch was a sad day for those who like games to have their own personality. Next time GG just have the courage of your convictions. Changing the options for controls wasn't ever going to keep people from going back to the easier games they already loved and meant a lot of us who loved the original concepts for KZ2 were left deflated and demoralised by a decision which baffles me to this very day.
Before the updates i could spent hours online, but now is impossible. gimmick control updates and the respawn instant kills makes the MP a tragic loss
The terrible spawn camping and unbalanced shotty and rpg is what killed it for me. i hope they bother to balance the classes next time around. And anyone who defends the controls is a fool. the skill in a game shouldnt come from battling the clumsy controls it should be how you play the game.
too bad i bought all the map packs already. i guess the 100 people left playing killzone 2 will be happy.
lol there is more than 100 people playing, if there was only 100 then I couldn't be playing early in the morning
will get off of the MAG beta for this.
Can someone who already have the maps confirm if we can play with the bots in the DLC map pack or no... I really love playing with the bots. You can PM me if you don't want to waste a bubble.. Either ways, if GG is giving the maps for free, then it's awesome...
They have spawn instant kills now? I'm never going back!
stop exagerating the impact of the control patch. All it really did was make the single player controls work more like the multiplayer controls(there was an obvious difference on release). I really don't think the patch hurt the game at all, the controls were still heavy(which I liked) and it never once felt like CoD as people like to claim. The patched controls was the correct decision and I think people kid themselves into thinking that it somehow 'ruined' the game.
The patched controls weren't all that different. I would still be waving my gun back and forth trying to shoot straight for the first five minutes of MP playing. After those five minutes though, it was pure slaughter!
Yes, you can play with / against bots in the dlc maps
Don't understand people complaining about spawn point kills. You can't spawn point kill easily in KZ2. First you can't get into a base with those over powered turrets all over the spawn bases and even if you do, there are cameras in spawn points so people can see you camped there and spawn somewhere else. You can even spawn of your team mate in a random location and look around him before you spawn on his mark. It's almost as if people who complain have never actually played KZ2 or didn't even spend 5mins with it. You have spawn cameras, heavy duty turents in bases and loads of respawn areas. If you keep getting killed at one respawn point then it's YOUR stupidity not the game's.
@Chubear You are absolutely right... I get the feeling that the people complaining are just regurgitating the negative things theyve heard about the game to justify not playing it. To this day I still play it occasionally, and I have absolutely no problems with the controls (old & new) i dont see why everyone else seems to complain about them. Its a shame gamers all want every game to be the same apparently. This is why games like CoD sell millions and Gems like KZ2 sell a fraction of that. But no matter, us real gamers that can enjoy a game for what it is and not for what it "should" be (CoD controls) can continue to enjoy ourselves and not come up with every excuse in the book to belittle the game just cause it's too difficult for you. There IS a learning curve...but once you get it, you wont lose it. Thats the problem with some of you, you think you should be GREAT at a game 5 minutes into it.
you describe it when players play the game the right way, but then there is a bunch of players that just go to their nearest enemy spawn point (red smoke) and wit in line, yes you can always respawn at the bases, but those are too far away from the action. I was playing the other day and the objective was to destroy the enemy base, but the fighting took place in near by spawn points, where the ones who had to protect the target posted there waiting for the enemy to respawn. BTW, insulting others is not a way to convince with arguments just so you know. The game is great, but the changes hurt it more than improve it.
you are one fanturd that really annoys me. just stfu ey. personally, i think killzone2 is one of the best on-line shooters on any console to date and i love it, but it doesn't mean that i think it's flawless coz it aint. i agree with a few gripes on here, over powered shotgun, stupid rockets, the way some games turn into a race for the spawn points, some of the maps are poorly designed etc. and all this bullsh!t about the controls...they're not very good and i'm putting it lightly! i use a 360 pad for killzone, and trust me, i never finish below the top 5 ever, i'm good at the game and kick a8se on it, but i can see the controls being a turn off....especially if your using that crappy DS3 to play the game with.
A friend of mine game shared those map packs with me some days ago. KZ2 online is awesome but I'm having a hard time choosing what online game I want to play. KZ2, R2 (the coop is amazing), UC2, BC2 and MAG beta (MAG is pretty good, controls are tight and provide for a good change of pace). Too many good games, and so little time.
Hardly anybody plays with the Killzone 2 DLC. Even on the playstation store, the DLC for COD4 and COD WAW get sold more than any Killzone 2 DLC. I don't mind weighty controls. I don't mind chokepoints in multiplayer maps. But when you have both weighty controls AND excessive chokepoints on multiplayer maps, the game becomes frustrating when it's next to impossible to turn quickly enough at these chokepoints. So everyone resorts to grenade spamming at these chokepoints. Killzone 2's biggest fault wasn't the controls. It was the multiplayer map designs. I still loved the game though, but I can understand why it turned off a lot of people. Best graphics for console FPS hands down.
The map designs for KZ2 are the best map designs I have ever experienced in a MP game, everything is done amazingly well, and it is very balanced too. So I have no idea what youre talking about.
You are perfectly entitled to your opinion. I just don't like the excessive chokepoints. And apparently many people agree because hardly anyone bought the DLC map packs AND hardly anybody played them online. I bought all three map packs and I can never find games that use them.
Not surprising, awesome news though :)
From day one of steel and titanium dlc i knew they would sooner or later come out free. Not enough people bought them I would rather they give them out free even if I paid for on of them just so that i have more people to play with. Also double XP weekend everyone come online it should be fun.
Y'know what, that's pretty cool. Can't complain about free DLC, after all :)
Are you kidding? Have you seen the comments on here. GG delivers a FPS unmatched in graphical quality on any console and the most intense atmosphere in a FPS. They then give DLC for a low price/free and naysayers go "meh, iz teh desperate. That's crap" ... but another developer gives you DLC that looks like a game from 2 yrs ago and charges 60bucks and it's "OMG IZ TEH GOTY!" and you wonder why developers will look at screwing over gamers if they see an opportunity to? Gamers this gen have got to be the dumbest of any generation in gaming so far.
i agree with everything you said.
you kids just hate on games like Cod because its cool between "hardcore gamers" (lmao, i bet you kids suck at every online game negative k/d's and all) to hate them. well, let me tell you, so far in PS3 ive played: RFoM: 3.5 k/d- 30,000 kills in ranked, 2.3 k/d - 19,000 kills in unranked (best gammeplay [at this point], set up & most skillfull online game on ps3) warhawk: 2.7-8 K/d 8,000 kills (fun but got repetitive) socom: 2.2 k/d 3,000 kills (broken online game, everything lagged, took for ever to start a game) CoD4: 3.14 k/d- just under 40,000 kills (just plain fun to play online, all the maps were excellent all the modes were fun, the gameplay was amazing) R2: 4.5 k/d 5,000 kills (i stopped playing, i thought the game bombed RFom was better) Killzone 2: 3.1 ish k/d around 3,000 kills, (worst maps, worst controls, sluggish feel, but it did have the best graphics = NOT FUN, JUST EYE CANDY) UC2: fun, but i played only a few games and dont even know what my stats are, i moved to MW2 MW2: 4.35 k/d just under 10,000 kils so far, (everything a sequel should be, better graphics, new maps, improved modes (HQ, HardcoreS&D) + new modes, new paerks features, many new features, knife throws, killstreaks (CONTROL AN AC130, BE A choppa gunna, EMP, NUKE THE DAMM GAME) and best of all THE GAME HAS A FREAKING 3RD PERSON FEATURE, thats a TPS & FPS in one game) basically: MW2 ≥ RFoM > CoD4 > UC2 > Warhawk > R2 > Killzone 2 > socom (this gen)> MAG (im in the beta, sh1t sucks, its a BF wanna be that just fails) just because it looks fun doesnt make it good, that game has horrible gameplay and isnt fun at all, not even from a competitive standpont like in GB, (strangely enough i enjoyed the first Killzone more, and even played it on GB, nMe owned all in that game)
knew that guerila games would not abandon us.
It must have lost a lot of players to MW2's online MP recently.
nah, you still find a good number of games with 30+ players at any rank =) maybe there has been less players, but you don't notice it at all.
lol, now they give DLCs for free cause nobody plays this crap online.
i know it's funny that they are giving it free. they should have charged 60 bucks like how you guys are used to it.
I think fanboys Xboxers are a bit retarded, they buy Gaylo 3 with Xbox Graphics and less than 20 players and they say is the best FPS. The mind of a Fanboy Xboxer is so strange....
so is the mind of a ps3 fanboy
lol, will there ever be something like that on XBL?? Never, ON XBL you wont see only 3000 players on a game which sold 2 Million times. They give the DLC for free to see more players.
That's because XBL has the type of people who will play a game forever to be the best till it's not even fun anymore, just to achieve a high ranking because they have no real life achievements!
And guess what you will never see free stuff on xbox live cause you guys love getting f*&ked by MS every which way they can give it to you. BTW I have way too many games to devote tons of my time to just one game. Right now I am playing GOW 2 collection, Uncharted 2 online, borderlands, Rachet and clank, and I still haven't cracked assassin creed 2. Not to mention I finished cod6 2 times in under 11 hours and the mp i played for 1 hour before ultimately getting bored cause I've played it before in COD 4, and 5. What are you playing? Let me guess COD 6 mp.
That has to be one of the most stupid posts I've ever read free DLC wake up dopey you have to pay to play that so-called free DLC duh!!
What a huge disappointment this game was. Believe me or not, Killzone 3 wont sell more than the second. This franchies is dead. Nobody plays it even online.
Please, SHUT YOUR MOUTH FOR ONCE DUMB ARSE BOT. You don't know what a FPS should be. So Shut your damn mouth and play with your halo baby game or auto aim kid game like COD 4 and COD 6, please don't say that Killzone 2 is a disappointment because it's to difficult for you.
You enjoy playing your sub par 640p Gameplay? It must be awesome
I play it a few times a week and usually @ night and I can assure you there are people playing online. I wish more people would play salumns market though i like that map. Hopefully in kz3 we get some destructible buildings like bad co 1,2 and some vehicles. Pyrhuss Rise would be a good tank map hopefully big maps like that in kz3 with vehicles. i refuse to play smaller maps like Blood Gracht with rocket launchers. that portion needs to be refined when ur base gets spawned naded and everyone is blasing u with rocket launchers. No way. Even removing the nade option for some smaller maps should happen. When you cant progress as a squad because ur whole squad got naded in a room is horrible. that takes no skill from the opposition. I would prefer assualt class weapons and firearms on those types of maps. would make the game funner instead of looking @ the respawn timer more than playing. Btw i love killzone mplayer it just needs to be tweaked in the next edition.
And there is plenty of people playing with me . You wouldn't know that you don't have killzone 2 or a ps3 . black friday is coming ask your momma
Double XP, eh? Maybe I'll put MW2 away for a few days and dust off my old KZ2 disc. Used to have a lot of fun with it online.
When i play Modern War fare 2 after playing Killzone 2, it's no fun anymore it's so easy and unrealistic with no war sfeer at all. So, im happy with this DLC :)
@8.1 u r so right. i recently started the SP mode in kz2. When i first got it i jumped right on to MP lol. But I'm almost finished wit SP. I went to my friends house to try out MW2 and I just could not have fun.It just felt like something for kids. No skills needed. I am no longer interested in MW2 anymore. although the kill streaks are cool. but not enough for $60. Rather get Demons soul and AC2
please, killzone doesnt require any more skill than cod. in killzone all you do is blindfire, where is the skill in that? boost with a shotty.... no skill at all. rocket whores, spawn camping, useless snipers not goin for objectives, i could go all day. killzone 2 was hugely overrated (the reason i bought my ps3), and thats why there is rarely more that 1 or 2000 online. its just not fun after after you level up.
It's not so hard to like both guys. Games are for fun.
I'm not sure what you're talking about; 1. If you're talking about the original Killzone (you don't say 2) you couldn't blind fire in the multiplayer or single player. 2. If you're talking about Killzone 2, you could never blind-fire outside of the beta in multiplayer, because they removed that before it even came out. 2. If you're talking about blind-firing in general (or Killzone 2's single player), then you must hate Gears of War and Kill.Switch, which were both awesome. So I dunno about any of that.
It takes way more skill than COD, hell modern warfare 2 could be completed if you take it slow. Killzone 2 well you have to know what to do and do it fast because the AI changes each time you die, the enemies are hard to kill and covering won't do much good if they throw grenades or decide to rush you with their knives.
In Killzone 2 it takes skill to play skillfully; As in any game, there is no skill in cheating! Modern Warfare 2 is akin to cheating as a default setting; There isn't even a way to play it skillfully!
look at the fanboys line up. killzone 2 (since pixelsword is a douchebag) does not take anymore skill than any other game. stop trying to make yourself think you a superior gamer cause you play a broken piece of garbage flop job of a game. you fanboys make me laugh. killzone is easy easy easy. stop with the bs. pixelsword, i have no idea what you are talking about? you cant blindfire in mp? are you sure you played kz2? you could blindfire across of the maps. the most effective way to get kills in kz2 is to blindfire.
If killzone 2 is easy then COD modern warfare 2 can be played by blind mentally handicapped kids and rank number 1 on the leader boards.
I think you are confusing blind-fire with shooting from the hip. IF that is the case then you fall to a new level of stupid and hence your arguments mean nothing. There is no blind-fire in KZ2 MP since you can't take cover and good luck getting kills from across the map with shooting from the hip. While yes there are noobs who spam rockets those can be disabled and the game becomes much more fun. Speaking of "easy" you apparently have not completed KZ2 on Elite or else you wouldn't even attempt to convince others it's "easy". KZ2 in SP takes an exponential increase in skill compared to MW2 and people wouldn't have complained about not being able to kill people in MP if skill were the same. Don't even try to blame the controls since they basically separated aim-assist junkies from people who can aim and understand how humans move in real life. It's also pretty laughable that you call it a flop after it sold well (since fanboys care so much about that) and is still played night and day by many people. Any other idiotic comments you want to add with your LAST BUBBLE?
Ahh once again,. the only ones commenting are 360 fanboys. How sad.
I can tell because any fps fan can appreciate killzone. Even if they dont like the game they can always point to what it does well instead of bashing it.
like the PS3 fanboy sin every 360 article right:)?? Come on.. even the ps3fanboys sgould agree that this game was a FLOP and an even bigger flop in terms of gameplay.. or how you you explain me the ONLY 3000 players online?? People just hate the controls.. the controls made the game an Multiplayer FLOP, while MW2 will be played for the next 2-3 years.
You, Shut your big mouth dumb BOT. You are just a dumb kid with no life, Killzone 2 is no FLOP. You knowledge is a big FLOP about real FPS games.
You are wrong, Kz2 is over 2 millions while Flopza 3 isn't a million even, and trying to reach Gt5 Prologue definition and lightning....:)
rocco you are trolling. rocco,return to your hard core/porn movie. games are a serious thing.You don't know what you are saying.KZ2 a flop? MW2 will be played for the next 2/3 years only on xbl.because xbox360 simply has NO other games.
then what was Halo wars?
Trying too hard Sony :) Time to face the facts.
If you owned a ps3 you would understand this is a good thing for its fanbase.
most of its fanbase has moved on to uncharted or mw2
WAAAAAH! WAAAAAH! WE ALSO WANT FREE STUFF! MOMMY!
putting in KZ2 after playing MW2 is like going back in time, it really makes you realise (again) how good and technically impressive the graphics are on KZ - I can't wait to see what they have in store for KZ3, can you imagine them graphics in a earth environment! arcade run and gunners need not apply.
I agree, Killzone 2 reeked of quality and Modern Warfare 2 in comparison feels ike a cheap PC mod. I was showing MW:2 to one of my friends yesterday and we were looking at a tree in the snow level which is just made of flat 2D images. If you look at a branch tip dead on then it dissapears, compare that to the flapping flags on Pyruss Rise in Killzone 2. I cant wait for Killzone 3 and i cant wait to trade in MW:2 for MAG, glad i only payed £26 for it.
