Killzone's multiplayer is poisonous and I love it

I initially scoffed towards every bit of this explanation of Killzone: Mercenary's multiplayer systems. I don't much care for multiplayer, so why should I care that offline singleplayer progress yields weapons and stats that can go towards multiplayer? Well, while I may not care, it's sort of a neat idea and could keep people playing Killzone offline, out and about, to abet their online performance.More important, however, is valor cards.

... wait wtf did i just read?

Gamesgbkiller3945d ago

I hope the open beta is soon.

Can't wait to get really impressed by the game.

xReDeMpTiOnx3945d ago

Well all the good I've heard from this game renews my hope that killzone Shadowfall mp will be as good or better than kz2.

As long as its not kz3 quality then I'm happy.

Wish I still had a vita for this game :/

joab7773945d ago

K3 was a great multiplayer but I do hope that next gen brings back the open platform nature of K2. Mercs looks amazing. The only annoying thing is that woman's voice every 5 sec. Gotta change it. But it definitely proves that there is hope for mobile online fps.

HammadTheBeast3945d ago

The brought back in the old gameplay designer of KZ2, so I have high hopes.

xReDeMpTiOnx3945d ago

Yes sit Eric boltjes or aka Ebolt is back as lead mp dev.

So I also have hopes for it, this time they need to listen to hardcore fans and not try to appease to casuals.

Must play , Vita is great but if you are interested in big games like this game then don't buy the vita. It will disappoint you . But if you can wait after buying it then go for it. It just need more time to release the big stuff ..

This is the only game for this year. The rest either ports that have more then 50% that you played them or small games or indies or mobile games or PSP/PS1 games. Of cours , there are few that worth playing but not really a system sellers. This is how the vita doing without mentioning the limitations / Prices and low numbers of Apps..

Trust me , you can get over all of this if you saw the games you like. Ones you see that you will love the vita dispite of all these negatives that can be fixed ..

Guerrilla Announces Shutdown of Servers for Killzone: Shadow Fall and More

In August, online servers for several PlayStation games will shut down, leaving their multiplayer functions unplayable.

whrere on earth is the next killzone, im soooOOO thirsty for some proper weighted, (but still fast when running/sprinting) fps gamplay, it felt sooso so good on ps3, with that, lets be honest, very small, quite uncomfortable sixaxis dualshock controller, that was just too small for western sized hands, ok for japanese kids i suppose was the point>??

now with PS5 controller, it would be totally masterfull.

ClayRules2012668d ago

I hear you. I want some NEW Killzone, especially on PS5, with the PS5 DualSense controller with that ever so impressive DualSense of an experience Haptic feedback!

Knowing how far Guerrilla has come since Horizon: Zero Dawn, Killzone can only benefit greatly from their ever growing talent!!

Bobertt667d ago

I think Sony has given up on their exclusive shooters. They haven't released a remaster for the Resistance series or a new SOCOM game either. I don't think Guerilla is in a rush to make Killzone since they have Horizon now too :(.

All I want is for them to build Killzone 2 with multiplayer included from the ground up, keep the gameplay the same, and I'll be happy.

GG with KZ3 and Shafowfall haven't been able to match KZ2 so I don't really have faith in another sequel.

Unfortunate that KZ2 came out during COD era where every game that didn't pay like Modern Warfare was deemed garbage. KZ2's multiplayer is definitely an all time great.

Michiel1989668d ago

since when was kz2 deemed garbage?

MizHDTV668d ago

Right on dude
KZ2 was just a special game to me

sinspirit668d ago

I'd love KZ2 multiplayer again. I also think they could easily incorporate a mode to compete with Battlefield style game modes

Seraphim668d ago

KZ2 was one of maybe a handful of games I actually put time into online. What a blast!! And the campaign was excellent as well. I certainly miss that dark world. Still ashamed I never buttoned up that Platinum.

Storm23668d ago

A remake of Killzone 2 with the same grittiness and feel on PS5 would be f*cking incredible. The SP and MP were just perfect. I played the sh*t out of that game. Would happily pay a lot of money for that.

DarXyde667d ago

Honestly, I don't like FPS games. They're not for me, but I do agree that there was something about KZ2 multiplayer that even someone like me enjoyed.

Sony really needs to get better about tearing down servers. I don't like that they shut them down.

shadowT667d ago

agree, KZ2 was a masterpiece

Muigi667d ago

KZ3 multiplayer was better imo.

"since when was kz2 deemed garbage?"

As with anything, things don't get the appreciation it deserves until way after it's release.

KZ2 got a lot of flak for it's weighty controls that many mistook for input lag. People didn't like that it wasn't a twitch shooter like CoD. You also had people saying things like "it feels like you're controlling a midget", "enemies take too long to die" (you can't pray and spray in kz2. You have to shoot in bursts for your shots to be more accurate), people complained about the sniping, etc.

This led to a lot of changes in KZ3 that turned the vets off like reducing the amount of variables for bullet damage, getting rid of spawn grenades, etc.
