Guerrilla Games have just confirmed to Gamesthirst that there will be no more Operations maps for Killzone 3.
8 maps for $9.99 is better than 5 maps for $14.99.
That's not the point... the new maps only support one game mode (less value), and for some reason GG didn't separate the game modes from warzone, which got less chaotic (more boring) due to smaller maps and less players, and this game isn't even fun tactical wise. Also some of the maps are ports from Killzone 2.
Yeah.......I know......but the price is just right, lol
Erm, ports? yeah they are the same map but they have been made amazing, plus true killzone players love those maps anyway.. I am miffed that some maps are Guerilla warfare only, but realistically those maps would suck with full scale warzone, as they are too small. GG should have limited players on those maps but kept the warzone objectives... It is a Fun game tactically, But you have to have an able team... Best games are played amongst the pro's, You will hate it if your with noobs..
GG has dropped the ball so hard with Killzone 3. They didn't put enough content on the disc when the game released, and why they would come out with a really fun game mode and not support it after release doesn't make any sense. It would be nice if they could figure out a way to integrate the additional maps into the map rotation, kinda like...oh I don't know...Call of Duty?
I quit playing due to the ridiculously overpowered marksman class and this right here...Why would you not support, arguably, the most favored game mode in the MP portion of this game? They didn't ever add the server browser, did they? I don't really know because I quit playing after the first map pack released with mode exclusive maps
The marksman got nerfed
I would love to get back into KZ3 MP, but I haven't been motivated. Maybe new maps will do the trick.
8 maps in a span of 6 months, sorry but i got sick of playing the same 8 maps (excluding the retro map pack) and the limitations of playing them( you couldn't play every map for every game mode) in the first month of getting the game. I do like how they fixed alot of the issues from KZ2, but the lack of variety really killed the experience for me. The game should have launched with 15 maps, all of them should have had the operations mode attached to them. Guerrilla Games were on the right track , maybe if they had more time, and released it this winter they could have added more value to the game. Next.
That's not a bad deal
I have highway and turbine. Both maps are for snipers and it is very hard to regain tactical points. The Killzone 3 got some elements from COD and other non-tactical FPS but saved some tactical elements and now we have a messy hybrid.
exactly why i sold my copy of kz3 and stuck to kz2 to get my plat, just couldnt play it anymore.
the point is that there are no more operations maps, and I personally find operations gametype to be the most enjoyable multiplayer gametype in the entire game. same thing happened in Uncharted 2
operations is really fun, shame they wont make anymore.
Very true. IMO the mode had a LOT of potential and should have been a bigger focus during development. I'm glad Uncharted 3 though is make sure to have the cinematic experience in EVERY map and most likely every gamemode (both cutscenes and set piece moments). That way it doesn't end up like Operations in KZ3. However GG really dropped the ball IMO.
I had a bad feeling about KZ3 when I saw that they cut the maximum number of players. Why would they do that? I can only guess that it was because of Sony requiring that KZ3 support 3-D and therefore GG need the processing bandwidth.
definitely wasnt because of 3d, amount of processing load your ps3 is under has little relation to network stress theres no reason for you to tell the server if youre seeing 3d images or not, why would the server care what youre seeing? one has nothing to do with the other
I'm kinda disappointed, operations is beast!
yea, operation is my favorite mode
true that,best game mode for me in kz3...and i really dislike guerilla warfare,so possibly no new maps for me...i would love to play operations some more but how much can you stick with 3 damn maps?...
This is very dissapointing. When Killzone 3 released I suspected that they were under pressure to release the game on time and fully expected that over time all the maps would be made compatible with all the game modes. I can't really get my head around GGs approach to Killzone 3, it doesn't seem to make much sense the way they removed so many things that made Killzone 2 so good - detailed stats, fully customisable ranked games and custom badges to name a few. Then there's the poor map designs, I've come round to quite liking Bilgarsk Boulevard, Corinth Highway and Akmir Snowdrift (when there's low numbers) but Turbine Concourse, MAWLR graveyard and Pyrrhus Crater are pretty awful - I do love Frozen dam and stahl arms though. I am enjoying Killzone 3 and most of my gaming time at the moment is spent on it but it is really only because of the superb Move support when the next top rated shooter with Move support comes along I suspect I will be finished with KZ3. Anybody know of any news on Battlefield 3 supporting Move yet?
So the mode with the least maps gets no new maps? This makes NO SENSE!!!
Wow, Guerrilla kinda fell off after KZ2. I've been a KZ fan since 2003, back when the first footage of the game was floating around ripped from some VHS tape. It makes no sense that they'd introduce a new gamemode, then just completely abandon it before a year even passed in the game's lifespan. Oh well though. I don't even have the game anymore since it got old, and the marksman bs was stupid (though I heard it got nerfed). Too little, too late.
