The latest issue of EDGE has revealed that a new Killzone title is currently in development at Guerrilla Games.
Not sure how it would work with the ending Killzone 3 had. My main gripe with the story is that they have never got it right. Hopefully they will do a re-fresh type of thing with new characters and fully develop the story. Killzone 3 was getting their but the ending felt rushed to me.
That was one of the the flaws that really ticked me off with Killzone 3 as well. I mean the KZ universe have many interesting characters like Hackah and Luger, so many cool enemies that were implemented in Liberation but none of them hardly made an appearance. Guerilla is sitting on a goldmine of content for this title but the execution in KZ3 was disappointing. But let's just hoped they use this opportunity to start something new like you stated, hell, I would even be happy if Jammer is the new protagonist (that is if the ISA still remains the focus in the sequel).
I agree. They have so many good ideas but they don't use them. Everyone wanted to play as the Helghast but they made us play as ISA in Killzone 3. They need to hire better writers because even I can write a better story than them. That really says a lot. I sometimes see some great story predictions on their forum but what I see in their game doesn't come close. It's sad.
for a vita title. As for the ending of KZ3. I think it was meant to be a cliff hanger. You know there will be a 4 but it prob will be a launch title for the PS4 if it is on track to be announced in 12 and released in 13. I'd like them to take the original and give it the ps3 hd treatment. Or pass it off to a small team that has time to do it.
No one cares. Sales show it. I can't believe Sony hasn't still fired most of the team. Other than having amazing graphics, KZ games are one of the most generic FPS shooters around, on top of that it has THE worst controls in an FPS game. I gave it a shot for first 2 times, even finished KZ2 (gave up on KZ1). I had KZ3 for few months, didn't touch it. My brother played it though, and after few months he traded it. They promised new IP, something I was looking forward to, now they are coming back with this pile....
Completely agree. Amazing graphics for a crappy game. Seems like GG reached a quality peak with KZ2 (for those who don't remember, the first game sucks even more than KZ3).
no one cares? close to 2 million sales for the game so far on vgchartz which obviously not accurate but most of the time close...... honestly people are so obsessed with this whole day one/week sales that lifetime sales are ignored where most of these games end up very good. Do you think Sony is dumb to carry on with the series if it was not making money for them? BTW I am not into this game. I play the game for single player story and did not buy when i heard the story wasn't good. loved resistance 3 though. No reason to hate on it just because YOU did not like it. Yes it would have been nice to see a new ip from them but oh well way more games out there nowadays you just have to MOVE on....
lol vgchartz. Let's say 2 million is true, it's still nothing compared to other FPS games on the market. Besides most of those sales are either bundled(forced) or sold when game is 10 bucks. First month is what matters when game is full price. You freaks can disagree all you want but I speak the truth and you know it. If this game wasn't exclusive no one on N4G would be so butthurt. It would be just another Crisis.
What you are saying is true fanboy idiocy. 2 million sales might be nothing compared to other FPS but so what ??? Its enough to turn a profit and so therefore KZ is making money, promoting the Sony brand, and has resulted in a software engine that other 1st party studios can use - its more than viable as an business. Not everything has to be the market leader to be considered a success and only an idiot would think that a game which sells 2 million copies is a failure. All that said i thought Killzone 3 was shite.
"No one cares. Sales show it." Guess no one cares about Forza since no one bought it. Another Muppet making a comment about Sales must be sad to be a 360 only owner these last few years with nothing to play again till your next exclusive hits Sept-Nov 2012.
Judging by your past comments i doubt you even own a ps3.
Ye, ISA nuked a planet. Almost everybody died on that planet(99% of populatsion died). Now i say ISA is even worse than Helghast. For me, Helghast is good guy. Glad to see Stahl survived, now i want to see what he will do now.
How do you know Stahl survived ? It didnt show who was in the escape capsule at the end and im pretty sure it was that way for a reason. I actually thought Stahl was pretty crap as a villain, he just seemed like a whiney kid with a chip on his shoulder whereas as Radec and Visari were sinister badasses.
That's the point and it's something that has been missed. Helghast aren't the bad guys, they're just defending themselves.
the helghast ARE the good guys. what other fps plays as the bad guys? but everyones right, kz is just another generic fps (sarcasm)
I hope this is a next gen launch title. Killzone has already reached its limit this gen.
go on the killzone website. read the 500 years worth of pages of history of the killzone universe, the 2 extrasolar wars, leading to todays killzone, aproximately year 2600. you cant put 500 years of conflict into a video game, so its found on the website
That is all well and good but it doesn't actually come out in the game it self. They have the massive backstory on the website which is never tapped into.
Yes please GG....maybe from the Helghast perspective this time
Whats wrong with still playing with the evil side ;)
Shooting at the isa is kind of boring. The Helghast are simply more fun to fight, I don't really want a game from a Helghast perspective.
Only downside to the Helghast perspective is the negative press associated with it. I am not sure the media is going to like people playing as a Nazi style group attacking a western influenced side.
I would love a third-person spin-off.
nope, i fully disagree.
KZ liberation???? hellooo
AWESOME!!! KILLZONE BEST FPS this year!!!
better than battlefield 3, crysis 2, RAGE(although it had a stupid story but was still fun and looked amazing), resistance 3 and crysis 1 on consoles ? LOL no kz3 isn't the best fps this year.
I have to admit that even though KZ3 might not be the best FPS this year I still liked it's atmosphere the most.
As far as SINGLE player goes I think Resistance 3 was the best fps this year with a good story and varied and fun gameplay. Rage would have been better if it had a decent story. Multiplayer wise Battlefield 3 takes the cake. it is just awesome (playing on PC). I have to say though I am enjoying spec ops in mw3 and the multiplayer is the same old but it is fun for the short amount it lasts.
I know that Battlefield 3 MP has some patch coming, but anyway I still prefer Killzone 3 MP. Killzone 3 story is pathetic though, I liked Battlefield 3 a lot more under this aspect ( also if it was nothing special I think it' s good ).
Nope... Killzone 2 was in its day, but 3 was a bit of a step back.
If they could clean up the single player story and make it not seem so half assed and generic Killzone could be a total package because the online portion is already good stuff, except for the lack of operations dlc
Co-op online campaign please! Only this was missing from the beautiful K3. I would like kind of Resident Evil 5 online cooop, it was so much fun!
How about split screen in online multiplayer? I wish it had that option.
I hope they go back to what made the first killzone great and unique. Bring back secondary fire for weapons and the choice of playing as 4 different characters with their own specializations. This would be a great opportunity to introduce 4 player online coop. I'd also like to see Hakha and Luger again.
Killzone 4 on ps4 And just maybe metal gear solid 5 on ps4 hmm all this sounds to me like next gen could be closer than I thought. It would be crazy to see Killzone 4 as a ps4 launch title, also Grandturismo 6 on year one would be major. All while the likes of naughty dog and sucker punch and quantic dreams work on their new ips for the ps4. Great sounds like things are on track, with the vita being built by devs for devs I expect the ps4 to follow the same pattern and become a sure success.
I'm trying to find the link, but I read that Ubisoft have PC's equivalent to Next Xbox specs, and prototypes are not far away. And at least one Sony studio has completely migrated to next gen development (maybe GG??) Ubisoft were also implying launch of Next Xbox for Xmas next year, and that Sony may try and follow suit. Not sure how I feel about that. I think the PS3 still has plenty of room for more great games, so I'm in no hurry to jump to the Next Next Gen!
I think probably Naughty Dog.
Its an honest mistake but...... But its Gran Turismo NOT Grand Turismo. Even seeing it spelled "grand turismo" pisses me off for some reason. LOL.
GG need to take a good look at what made Killzone 2 good and then make Killzone 4. rather than what they did with Killzone 3, which was look at what made COD successful and then try and rip it off, get it wrong, piss all over their fanbase, release a big filled game that had bollock all clan features, shitty map rotation, half baked game modes, and unbalanced gameplay.
Yeah Kz2 is the best FPS on ps3, best this gen in my opinion atleast. They made everything seem so real and alive, and some think the controls sucked, well I loved it for what it was and it was a pretty damn good attempt at making a control scheme that haves you feel like your character is real, a bit lag they patched it became a better though not perfect. Hope they nail the controls in kz4. Killzone 3 what went wrong? Well it felt cartoonized(bright and contrasty, non real looking), unfinished, it was short the sensation of realism was toned down A LOT. The game plays great, runs great and look great, but there is like its only a scent of it that is still Killzone, I mean its all really good exept story and some acting dialogue + somewhat lack of polish but my point... it felt different, super accesible and rushed. Kz4 should be like: KZ2 world/environment look/design, gameplay, atmosphere, build upon Kz2 ai and physics or deliver new and better systems all together, Killzone 3 ai was not the same sadly, as 2. kz4 guerilla should have some of their attention back at all the small details and stuff that made 2 great + kz3 is too easy. Have a better story like 2 just with more cutscenes, better ISA dialouge (In particular) as half the ISA characters always sucked for some reason... Killzone 2 mp with some more customization, more game modes, same class system and classes, but maybe bring more badge abilities and a few more classes and weapons (kz2 systems were good), bring operation from Kz3 and splitscreen from Kz1, dont think kz3 supports split screen for mp. split stereoscopic style and old school split screen thank you. Also it wouldnt nesascarilly be a bad idea to have both a HIG and a ISA point of view campaign, perhaps an episodic DLC Helghast campaign would be the thing, I'd buy that. Also it should be a ps4 title, Hope gg take their time and deliver what fans want and blow us away. Im also pretty excited for GG's new ip, should show up at e3 2012 in form of a trailer atleast.
They need to kill the main characters because they all are so dull.
So many people praising Killzone 2 over Killzone 3. Newsflash people: Killzone 3 > Killzone 2.
News just in - your wrong !
KZ2 > KZ3 this is fact. GG said it themselves...
Just came from some KZ3 guerrilla warfare :) Nice, wonder what KZ4 will be like.
Make it a prequel. The Rico and Sev thing isn't very good tbh. I read the KZ backstory, and I think the game should take place in the first extrasolar war. We can see retro versions of the weapons and machinery (not really retro, but older), and maybe see some Vekta AND Helghan
Killzone actually has a very interesting backstory, it would be nice if they could go deeper into that.
I wanted a new IP......
and I sincerely believe that it has loads of potential when the current state of the industry is considered(shooter's being so popular.) There is no other console shooter that can equal its grittiness and overall production values, but they desperately need to inject something into this series to gain more mass appeal. I think the main thing that holds Killzone back is that it isn't fast paced and frantic like the more popular shooters are. I get that the devs aim for a more weighted, lumbering feel, but they need to find a way to blend that signature style into something more heart-pumping and visceral for a bigger audience. Most of the people I know who don't like Killzone simply don't like it because they feel that it isn't very exciting. If Guerrilla can nail this, then I could easily see this series rivaling CoD in sales and acclaim. There really is nothing inherently wrong with the games, but I find that Killzone in light of CoD, Battlefield, and Halo is akin to how Virtua Fighter and Tekken are compared. Nobody in their right mind would dare doubt the complexity and quality of a Virtua Fighter game in light of Tekken, but VF has zero personality and very little style, focusing almost exclusively on the purity of it's combat system. This compromise, IMHO disconnects the gamer from the game to a degree, and can make playing it downright boring at times. Maybe a reboot would be a good idea, maybe a whole new chapter in the saga, an alternate side-story...who knows, but the franchise needs something fresh and fun to catch peoples attention again.
the industry's best and most talented developers in gaming history and of course KZ2 KZ3 the best looking games of this gen by FAR, can't wait to see what happens NEXT!
Obviously they are going to start working on a Killzone game if Playstation 4 is underway
Hire a new go to make the SP story, the back story is amazing but the game story is shit.
Dang i guess im in the minority.I enjoyed KZ3 more than KZ2.Alot of my friends didn't bother with KZ3 because of KZ2 controls.There's alot that GG can do with the Killzone franchise.
I loved KZ1 and 2, but thought 3 was an utter turd. There were two things the game needed to do and it didn't: -Reveal ISA as the true villains. -Rico die a horrible death. Neither of those two things happened, so I sure hope it does in 4.
Meh, I liked the series a bit, the online was better than the campaign. The reverse of Resistance, I really loved the resistance camapaign but didnt' really care for its online. I was hoping GG would do a new game with the killzone engine. The engine, along with MAG engine, would be great for Military RPG.
