First Killzone 3 Screenshot Leaked

The first screenshot for the Playstation 3 exclusive Killzone 3 has been leaked. The most noticeable change is the snowy environment, which was previously unseen in prior Killzone titles. No other information has been released, but with E3 less than a month away, Killzone 3 has a realistic chance of making an appearance.

well i definitely never seen the fur around helghast neck before, so im kinda beliving this is a kz3 screenshot... what im not liking is the it planet helghan again? cus i really hoped for enriched lushes terrains of planet earth in kz2 graphics... to finally shut those crysis fanboys up

TotalPS3Fanboy2647d ago (Edited 2647d ago )

Very interesting.

The textures are definitely high resolution. Just look at all the details on the clothes and all those straps and stuff the guy on the left is carrying. Amazing. Hopefully, it's not the work of some dedicated fan.

Looks like they're still in Planet Helghan?

-Alpha2647d ago (Edited 2647d ago )

There really isn't anyway to tell if this is real or not.

Still, can't help but get excited.


More weapons are needed. I really liked K2, but they need to improve/add:

-Party support, the lack of this was so baffling
-Class balance. Stupid Tactitian players creating choke points ruined the flow of game.
-Ability to see what kind of games servers are running. Can never tell if you are joining a simple 20 minute game or a 3 hour long game, which is always annoying.
-An absolute crazy amount of customization options. Ability to turn off grenades for example-- however if this happens they'll need to make matchmaking though. Too much customization would lead to games where rules are never fully understood. I like my basic modes of play and crazy custom games to be separate

I have high hopes for K3. Since they don't need to focus so much time on the engine it can only mean more focus on gameplay

Is it me or does this screen shoot look better than anything Crysis 2 related..

EDIT : Theres a link on KZ3 wiki that states environments will be destructible. Link not in English so..

Commodore2647d ago (Edited 2647d ago )

It's an image from Lost Planet 2

You people disagree with me...Look it up, I'm not sure though. Could be Killzone 3.

"Taken from Konsolifin:

2 days ago I was able to play Killzone 3 behind closed doors in Amsterdam and have to say that it looks crazy.

The graphics are still based on the same engine as its predecessor, but was immensely improved.

While the playable areas of the second part of the series were pretty linear, we can assume that there will be wider areas like those of Battlefield BC 2.

What impressed me the most in the 30 minutes were the snow effects. It just looks fantastic how the snow lays down on the weapon and melts when shooting - and all that in 3D!

To be honest, I was a bit sceptical but KZ3 looks phenomenal in 3D, the explosions, the rain and the snow seem to be so real, that hollywood blockbusters like Avatar pale in comparison.

According to Guerilla each exemplar will be shipped with 2 killzone-styled 3D glasses.

I can't say anything about the controls, because Sony didn't show anything about them, but KZ3 is targeted to be played with a generic controller or the Arc.

P.s. You should all mark your calendars for March 13th"

============================= ====================

From another forum:

Will show the Helghast have humanity left in them.

Will have the feeling that "of being in a place far away from home, outnumbered by people who want to kill you."

Will be like Inglorious Basterds.

All of the characters in the screenshots are flying in.. jetpacks?!

Will include arctic levels.

One mission in the game involves rescuing ISA Captain Narville.

Game is playable in 3D!

Have to wear 3D glasses, apparently the 3D effects are "crazy."

Combat is "unchanged from predecessor."

Hand to hand combat involves you "Unloading a string of different (and often brutal) attacks on stunned enemies."

The scale is supposed to be "bigger this time."

The Jetpacks are "surprisingly lightweight and agile, Killzone 3's jetpack is easier to maneuver compared to the sluggish incarnations of the gadget found in other games."

New weapon called the Wasp, basically shoots a "flurry of rockets" at an enemy.

Will show off the Helgjast culture.

There is actually a Helghast language, which will be explored in the game."

Apparently the next issue of Gamepro has a big Killzone 3 blowout.

============================= ====================

The best quote is this: "I was a bit sceptical but KZ3 looks phenomenal in 3D, the explosions, the rain and the snow seem to be so real... Avatar pale in comparison."

I have a feeling that after people play Killzone 3 in 3D at E3, they're never gonna be able to go back to 2D TV again.

And... "each exemplar will be shipped with 2 killzone-styled 3D glasses."

Why 2 glasses? Does this means the game will feature split screen co-ops?!!!

So excited!!! Killzone 3 in 3D is going to blow people's mind at E3!!!


Sev1512 - "As great as this is... There is an even bigger Sony first-party title that's about to be leaked. The first screenshot has hit the net and it's only a matter of time before it's on N4G."

TotalPS3Fanboy2647d ago (Edited 2647d ago )

- Will have "diverse locales."

- Have to sit in the center of the 3D tv for the 3D effects to work.

- 3D in this game is called a "Game Changer."

- Going to have "Intense Action"

- Jetpacks double as a weapon, which basically means a machine gun mounted right on top of it.

- If you shoot Helghast with jetpacks, they'll "explode like roman candles"

- To control the jetpack, you "have to activate bursts of speed in midair, propelling yourself across further distances."

- The Jetpack resembles something you'd do in platformers such as Super Mario Bros. Or Uncharted

- In one mission, you have to use the jetpack by "launching yourself from glacier to glacier"

- You'll see "a lot of" snow levels.

- Everything is more spread out in this game.

- The game looks very complete.

============================= ====================

Someone need make that screen shot shake so it looks like its 3D. LOL.

Anyway, I have a feeling all those white snow are going to turn red when I played. Hahaha.

N4BmpS2647d ago

Oh snap they brought back the Jet pack guys from the PSP game?

RosoTron362647d ago

Bubbles for the great info O.o /excitement

Petro892647d ago

Where is the Sev1512 quote from?

Thanks for all of the info and scans guys.

Killzone 3 looks awesome! Can't wait for E3...

young juice2647d ago

for goodness sake take away the cover system if it compromises the controls. and tighten up the controls while your at it. i dont like the lag effect.

also the online grenade spamming is just.... well... that was kinda fun for the first 15 or so games but then it got annoying

legendkilla2647d ago

im about to play some Killzone 2!!! headshot... BING!!!

...although it's very possible. I don't know and while I want to salivate all over this I'm not approving this because I just don't know if it's real or not. Either way K3 announcement at E3 is what I'm expecting. My sock will immediately fly off if they even say December 2010.

RememberThe3572647d ago

All I want is more weapons. Killzone 2 is still my top online game this generation.

CellularDivision2647d ago

These screenshots seem legit. Its just too bad it looks the same as KZ2. But Its a good thing I dont care about graphics. I will get this for the 3D. Been waiting for a 3D PS3 shooter.

morganfell2647d ago

This is artwork, not a screenshot.

BakedGoods2647d ago

It doesn't look like all. You can clearly see the polygon edges of the suits. The snow in the bottom left are definitely sprites. Not to mention you can see the AA at work; artwork doesn't need anti-aliasing, buddy.

dizzleK2647d ago

do you need glasses? lol. it's obviously a screenshot, this isn't a smoothed-out bullshot or target render like epic releases.

-Alpha2647d ago (Edited 2647d ago )

God Playstation Clan, please don't start the Halo killer nonsense again. It didn't "kill" Halo the first two times, and it wont the third time. The game will be great, let's please leave it at that and stop comparing these two totally different shooters.

And look what happened to Forza's sales :/


Please show me how this picture shows any reason to justify "Halo Killer" nonsense. Why so hell bent on "killing" Halo, the games are totally different. Please, an answer would be nice instead of hiding ;)

Godmars2902647d ago

Didn't they say the same thing about the infamous E3 trailer?

Meh, can't be any worse than jumping on the Forza 3 "Definitive" bandwagon :p

jjohan352647d ago

Based on the recent articles on N4G including photos of printed magazine layout, morganfell is obviously wrong yet again.

It might be the polar ice caps of Helghan?

Holy crap though.


Ah good point good point

I forgot at the end the Helghast were finally pushing the ISA back and we're most likely gonna see them going to Vekta to get it back

End Spoilers

BakedGoods2647d ago

Or polar ice caps in Vekta?

Maybe KZ3 moves from Helghan to Vekta half-way through?

Sev2647d ago

Fallout from a nuclear bomb has created a sort of "ice age".

SeanRL2647d ago

It should start on helghan and move to earth.

tapaz2647d ago

not earth bro, Vekta. I don't think there is an earth in the Killzone universe.. is there?

Cevapi882647d ago

in the original story...humans devastated Earth or something like that to the point it was a mass exodus to find a new home was set out....this where we get the formation of the ISA...and the helghast were human first...they got rich through the planet helghan due to the immense resources and were living on vekta....they bought their independence from the ISA....the ISA gets jealous...a coup occurs....those living on vekta get shipped off to helgan and that is where we get the transformation from human to Helghast....this is just from what i remember...there is a lot im missing out on

Greysturm2647d ago

Check the timeline at Doubt it will go to earth it will probably stay in helghan and its probably just helghan winter. The jist of the plot is Vekta/helghan was the midpoint for all interspace travel and were racking in the cash with transit and fueling fees earth saw this as a threat to its supremacy and took vekta.

kaveti66162647d ago

I'm sorry, but aren't the PS3 fanboys the ones who should shut the hell up about Crysis? Haven't most people agreed that regardless of how good Killzone 2 or 3 looks, it's not ever going to match the visuals and physics effects of Crysis?

I myself am not a Crysis fanboy and I think Killzone 2 looks great and KZ3 will look better, but please don't overhype KZ3, man.

RatFuker2647d ago

just because crysis is an amzing graphical powerhouse does not mean it cannot be touched. ill wait to see the kz3 graphics before i judge.

TheBand1t2647d ago (Edited 2647d ago )

I didn't drop either, since I liked Killzone 2's gameplay as much as I liked BC2's.

Since, y'know....they're both fun.
