The second installment of map packs for Killzone 3 has been revealed to be coming soon to the hard hitting shooter. Take a brief look at Steel Rain.
Disappointed with the lack of Operations as its my favorite mode. I'm just questioning the logic of releasing 2 DLC packs out so soon after release and I hope they pace it right. I think they said they plan to have a lot of DLC and with 3 modes and with not every map having every mode, and with their strategy of offering 2 maps per package, I worry about the community being split up so quickly. I want a lot of DLC support, and I would support 5 maps for $15 as those keep the community more together. Hopefully this strategy works well for them I really want some retro maps and Operation maps. Warzone's TSA placements annoy me on some maps. Hopefully they bring back spawn on squad leader. IMO what K3 lacks are bigger maps and better/more TSA placements, and I hope to see that for future Warzone maps. Salamun Market is an example of a really good Warzone map, and that's from K2.
Glad to see them supporting this. lol DLC is much quicker then I expected. keep it coming Sony. I'm having a blast
besides that ... that level with the rain looks amazing; there's always so much going on in kz - I know that's going to be distracting for some gamers :)
Damn that map looks insane! I hope they flood us with DLC because I'm buying it all. :D KZ3 is the king of the FPS!
Personally I would be happy if they kept a steady flow of maps coming out until it reaches the 10ish mark. I already know all of these backwards and forwards! I just hope they do larger map pack releases at reasonable prices (1.50$ a map seems reasonable to me)
I have to agree, I think they are going to split up the community if they release them in small doses. I'd also like to see 1 retro map per pack too as that would be nice for the people who actually played Kz2 and it should be pretty wasy and less costly for the devs. I'd also like to see a lot of the features from Kz2 return in patches, like the 25 things you wrote about on the Kz forums...don't need them all back but some are a must. From the screens though they look like beautiful maps, can't wait till I can pick this game up but until then I shall keep playing Kz2.
Hey, you read that, good to see it going around :) What I love about K2 maps, and even in UC2, is the weather/dynamics of the level. Little details like the crane actually moving when you hold the objectives in Operations and the blinding blizzards in Akmir are great ways to make the maps immersive. I like the rain in the Junkyard map, hope it comes full with the lightning. I can imagine the awesome lightning effects. It should be a nighttime map IMO, they need one of those. Imagine the lightning spotting enemies for split seconds. Wish they kept Salamun Market and Turbine nighttime maps :(
Yea i LOVED the atmosphere with a lot of the Kz2 maps and DLC, all the dust flying around in the wind and the rain. I like the idea of a night time map that is really dark but then when the lightning hits the whole map lights up for a couple seconds and bullets start flying like crazy. I'd like to see another map like Wasteland Bullet too (not sure if there is one in Kz3 as I've only played the beta and won't be picking the game up until mid March).
For me the KZ2 maps I would like the most are Pyrhus Rise (sorry for spelling if its wrong), Corinth Crossing, and from the KZ2 map packs (wern't some of them retro Killzone 1 aswell... no idea which ones, never played KZ1, all I know is I bought the pack), the train map, and the map where the nuke goes off. I wouldn't mind if they included some KZ2 dlc... as DLC again that there would be a discount or free is its logistically possible and we bought it for KZ2. Overall I think Guerilla are doing well, and guys, I don't think they are really milking it by anouncing a second one so quick, maybe they had them planned to go with the game but didn't have time to finish??? I know I'll be a sucker and buy it anyway :D
I think you're right that spawn on squad leader would fix a lot of problems with the tsa placements. But then they need to make it easier to get into a squad like on kz2 inside the game instead of only using psn system. I have a feeling they took it out 'cause of the increased amount of people you can have in a squad. 7 people spawning at once on a person could really piss some people off ya know lol. Have two permanent base spawns fairly close but separated would have made it harder for a team to get boxed in as well. Anybody else kind of wishing they would have left out the wasps turrets? They're not so bad, easy to take out and such...but when they start spamming the area anywhere near you the camera shakes so damn bad I can't tell what's going on lol. A halfway solution would be to add a timer on that they can't be fixed for 30-60secs after blown up. That way people don't just keep spawning and jumping right back on.
I don't like wasp turrets because of players don't deal with them. I was playing in Salamun and a guy was going 18-1 until he killed me. And I made it my mission to stop him because a lot of players don't seem to pay attention IMO. Likely because they are still getting used to it. I took him out constantly and gave him like 10 deaths. He kept going for the wasps but I didn't let him have a chance again. I do think that they need to have limited ammo though. Because some players KDR whore and only do the Wasp turrets.
I don't like it. The game just came out and a DLC Pack is announced? They should've just include it in the game at the 1st place
I imagine a lot of people, like myself, got the DLC for free for pre-ordering or buying at gamestop/amazon/best buy. I believe they all offered free weapons and the map pack DLC code, as well as a unique Home item (whatever).
Id prefer SP dlc lol, but this is fine too.
WTF? already, smh
sony is already milking the game COD style i bet the dlc will be $15
wasn't the other one 5$? And I got that for free for pre-ordering, as I imagine a *lot* of people did. Regardless, I will pay up to 9.99 for a large pack and 5$ for a 2-map pack. Worth it for me IMO, plus this game is still "fresh" to me.
Tired of this. DLC getting announced moments after release, or even before release.
Blame Activision and/or Call of Duty.
No, blame the idiots that were stupid enough to give Acti money for a couple of extra maps.
Idiots will be idiots. I blame the people who consistently exploit idiots. If there's a drug epidemic (and Call of Duty has become like crack in the eighties), whose to blame? The addict or the dealer?
I hope they announce some larger DLC like an expansion pack. I'd like to see more weapons, as it was one of the most requested changes asked in the open/closed beta. That Stahl Arms map reminds me a lot of the Vekta Cruiser map for KZ2 DLC.
More SP DLC please - We campaign fans DO exist ya know?
These are probably maps that got cut out from the final game. Look at the other Ps3 games too that were recently released, they also had DLCs already planned/getting released. \w/
Every game nowadays has planned DLC. Whether they cut it from the final game or not is irrelevant.
BULLSH*T. i hated the beta but when i tried the retail i purchased it. i actually like kz3 but the mp feels dead and releasing dlc this fast is bullshit! i bet everyone here will make excuses for this kind of business practice kust because its kz3 but i wont. if other games are called out on it then it should be called out here too the disagree reminds me of why game developer should never get feedback from this site. too many fanboys
You come to this site, or at least stay on it, knowing that fanboys are around. Sure it was better with the open zone and we were seperated, but right now you have to live with it, I'm sure you can find another less fanboyish website around.
they should be free...
I bet it was content cut from the game, especially since they reveal it very fast...(as soon as the game was released) http://www.youtube.com/watc... Blackbond was right about the waste of 41 gigs... That business strategy has to stop... Keep in mind that Sony is still part of the Triforce of evil http://www.youtube.com/watc...
He raises some good points, but he is wrong about the controls people still bitch about them about them being good our bad
¿Que? I'm getting really annoyed with all this DLC getting announced right after the games release, if its already been made it should be in the game.
wait did i see rain? i love fighting in the rain...
Me too, I'll get as soon as it's available. I don't give a shit about being charged either, it's KZ3 :)
No complaints. Enjoying KZ3 so, bring it! :)
Bad idea to split the online community so soon with all these different maps.
the game went gold in jun , so they are working on it in more then a month , so get over yourself ....... some of war games have 8 maps in the start but killzone 3 have better graphics and the maps are bigger.. people like to troll.... same happened with gt5 , they always find something to troll , ps3 exclusives are all great , especailly this year :/ i still don't have the game, it's friday , all shops are closed and protesters are out in my country
Hm this practice is really starting to get annoying. The game released on Tuesday....they already have a Map Pack you can DL. Unacceptable. If your going to push that out, it should be free. Your milking the player base now. I understand your trying to keep the game relevant. But if your going to release DLC. It should be free for the first month...or if you don't want to make it free, just wait a month or two before releasing it. This practice is very much unacceptable, regardless of what game were talking about.
Much rather some single player dlc
I'd much rather have online co-op dlc.
this game is shooter of the year
What're you talking about, this isn't Battlefield 3 ;D
LMAO! deng he jus noscoped the guy in the jetpack! lol pretty epic haha
I'm really loving the campaign its a good mix between dumbasses talking in war with a little bit of humor and seriousness. It's a lot better than I thought it would believe. So far so good I havent really played much of the online but its on par as well. Sony congrats on my 60 bucks.
