Updated: No Killzone 3 co-op confirmation

TVGB: "This week’s FirstPlay — the digital magazine for the European PSN — features a nice juicy Killzone 3 preview. It doesn’t reveal any new footage of the 3D-enabled shooter but does confirm something that we’ve been waiting to hear about for a while; co-op."

Update:

FirstPlay was in error, has issued a statement: http://www.thatvideogameblo...

“we do know that Guerrilla is working on a special objective-based 4-man co-op mode to go with the standard 2-player stuff.”

So Sev and Rico for the campaign and separate missions for the 4 player? They've made sure to destroy any criticism anyone had with KZ2 :)

blusoops2592d ago

The only other thing that would make this spectacular is split screen co op. To this day the only shooter I own that has this feature is R:FOM a launch title. Warhawk does too but I like to go thru campaigns as well as mp online.

Also multiple psn ids would be super nice for the trophy lovers like me. Lol

sorry to say but unfortunately there wont be any splitscreen for killzone 3. the devs said that it will lower the game quality and the cinematic experienced wont be experienced if they made splitscreen. if u ask how i get this from, theres a guy on the GT forums who apparently has some connections with guerrila games and he actually stated the game would have co-op a long time ago. u could search him up, i dont have a direct link to his blog at the moment sorry. he also stated that the game will have more like a battlefield bad company feel to it, online is going to be huge just like it with destructable environments and vehicles

sayonara892592d ago

They are doing stereoscopic 3D, SS is no problem at all. This comment was about KZ2?

GWAVE2592d ago

This is stinkin' sweet! Though I didn't understand why people hated on KZ2 for not having co-op: most FPSs don't have co-op these days.

But anyway, I was already excited to play KZ3. Now I have even more of a reason to get it Day One.

drdistracto7072592d ago

I hope we get to play as helghast in the co-op campaign :D

BubblesDAVERAGE2592d ago

2 player online...4 player on and offline...like halo 3...killzone engine is most powerful but it can do it...i love split screen

Darkstorn2592d ago

It would be cool to have some splitscreen action, but it's really not that popular these days. Nevertheless, it's great to hear that Killzone 3 will be incorporating coop.

I_find_it_funny2592d ago

that's awesome, I don't need split-screen

sikbeta2592d ago (Edited 2592d ago )

WOW! Awesome News, KZ3D Keep Getting Better...

KZ3D FTW!!!

Hideo_Kojima2592d ago

i love split screen i still play it with my friends

UT3
MW2
LBP (no really split)

They are so much fun in split screen mode.

If Killzone 3 can do 3D it shouldn't be too hard to do split screen in 2D.
They said that all the games that can do split screen can easily be converted to do 3D as they already render 2 different images at the same time.

webeblazing2592d ago (Edited 2592d ago )

yall jumping the gun like always most likely its main story 1 player or 2 players online and a co-op mission like most ps3 games do. i doubt they do split screen for the reason they said b4. im sure they will have a co-op standalone part like R2, UC2, ect.. ps3 games was always doing this because of the space

and yeah it maybe can do split screen but how thats gonna work with kz3 with 3d this is not kz2 like they said they built this around 3d

Ju2592d ago

Nice idea, that 3D and split screen. Isn't technical feasibly I would think, but besides that, how would you play that ? You friend sitting next to you and his perspective cutting into yours ?

likedamaster2592d ago (Edited 2592d ago )

False advertising by authors, it's 2-player co-op. There's a separate 4-player co-op mode(its not the same). Either way, welcome to the 'co-op' club Guerrilla Games. It's better late than never.

ivant2591d ago

I don't care for coop

I just what to freely use the vehicles in SP & MP....now that would be truly awesome.

Good news indeed. Can't wait to see what it's all about.

I_find_it_funny2592d ago

there's a chance to play as Higs I guess :)

adlt2591d ago

Beat Bioshock (just started it)
Beat Final Fantasy 13 (just started it)
Beat Red Dead Redemption (getting towards the end)
Beat Killzone 2 again (on Elite this time)
Beat GTAIV (finally got the motivation again)

All before this masterpiece comes out because I know when this comes out I won't play any other game :D I really hope it's possible for me!

Hyrius2592d ago (Edited 2592d ago )

Looks like Guerilla read all the players' feedbacks : Story coop, objective-base coop, bigger levels, more variety ( gameplay and level ), better control, more set pieces ...

Best FPS ever incoming.

HopSkotch2592d ago

please and a better ranking system...COOP sounds badass i'm down

Karl Marx2591d ago

What's wrong with the ranking system? I thought it was goo

RedDead2591d ago

Ranking was too short I thought. I hate Prestige(Whatever) and would prefare a much longer one like battlefield 2

HopSkotch2591d ago

I like the ranking system don't get me wrong...but i feel it was way too short even after the updates. Add a system more delicate and unique where you can really show off your rank

chakan2592d ago

Damn, that is badass.

Pennywise2592d ago

Ahh, the first real gaming news article of the week... and a GOOD one at that!

bjornbear2592d ago

just wow

so 2 player co-op for campaign, and 4 player SPECIAL co-op? (say extra missions, etc =D)

WOW!! KZ3 best up and coming FPS confirmed =3!!!

yoshiro2592d ago

very very very very VERY good news...
co-op was the only thing lacking in KZ2 imo

Monolith2592d ago

that and i really missed the secondary fire

FACTUAL evidence2592d ago

will be almost perfect! They have everything I want so far! Now to just make this even more boss than it is, let us play music while in campaign too, and give us cross game invites like all the recent ps3 games have been doing so far. KZ3 will be the shiznit!

tinybigman2592d ago

after hearing this good news if true (which i really hope it is). anyway i can't wait to play this next year.

NYPunkster2592d ago

Whoa ...they're really working hard over there. Good job people keep it up!

otherZinc2592d ago

I knew it: "objective based" co-op, really?

Where is the "Campaign Co-op"?

I've said this for the longest time: the PS3 cant do campaign co-op, it would take to much RAM & SONY wants a game to look good vs features.

So now they'll throw in some side co-op & followers will be happy with that?
Whatever, I wouldn't!

"we do know that Guerrilla is working on a special objective-based 4-man co-op mode to go with the standard 2-player stuff.”

"4-man co-op mode to go with the standard 2-player stuff.”

"standard 2-player stuff.”

Learn to read my friend.

Just in case there's a stealth edit:
