This would be a very nice update, and a very good addition to an amazing game indeed!
resist the hype. this is obvious bullshitery. "Killzone 2 to get Co-Op soon on the PS3?" what other system can killzone 2 get co op on? obvious lie. i bet someone is going to run with this. we will see another similar article later today
let's hype the sh1t out of this and if it goes all tits up let's blame sony /rinse and repeat
No problem with wanting co-op but the way I see it's a long shot.
I would love Co-op, but i seriously cannot see it happening. Something like coop which, in this case, needs to be built from the ground up would take quite some time, especially if it needs to be flawless. On top of that, Killzone 2 is a technical masterpiece and placing two people in that campaign on one screen would be EXTREMELY tough on the Playstation. Not to say that it couldn't do it if it was optimized, but it would be extremely tough.
but if it happend...OMFG! you know, i wish they hadn't removed bots from ranked matches though. i mean think about it...if you've played either of the Rainbow Six Vegas games...it's just like the terrorist hunt mode on that. you play against the computer and are able to rank up. i think they should've just made the AI harder or something.
I'd like to see it happen actually, but then what will the xbox fanboys complain about if it did happen...
I read the article's title and auto thought it'd be a link to hiphoptard's site. Lo and behold there is other dingle berries out on the net with his peanut sized brain. I personally hope the DLC is more carrot on the end of the stick. Extend the ranking system so it takes a good while to hit max. Give me a new trophy that is like 100,000 kills online in ranked games. A few new maps. Perhaps another game type, more classes, guns, party system, etc. I know GG was looking at doing new maps with vehicles on them, so odds are more pointing towards that over co-op. This game didn't need it on release and doesn't need it now. It needs more cocaine addiction in its multiplayer so I come back to it already.
HAHHAHA! Exactly what i was thinking... Killzone 2 can be played on something else???
IMO KZ2=FAIL in the multiplayer aspect of the game! NO OFFLINE MULTIPLAYER/SPLITSCREEN! NO ONLINE SPLITSCREEN! NO COOP! NO PARTY SYSTEM! In my book that is fail for a game that was suppose to be Sonys biggest game ever! I know the game itself is great but without these features its only okay! Why weren't these features in there in the first place? Seriously this game was in development for over 4 years and supposedly had 100+ people working on it.. what were they doing the whole time other than prettying up the graphics? The controls suck and no offline/splitscreen aspect! So again KZ2=fail in my book!
"The controls suck" no, you suck. the controls are fine as it is.
If it does happen - which I'm not holding my breath for - it would give me a reason to wipe the dust off the game. Online co-op would be such a breath of fresh air to this game. Hell, I might actually enjoy the campaign for once. And the controls don't suck, but they certainly don't rock either.
@1.6 They'd probably use the sales argument or something to that affect. Still seems a bit of a moot point. Wii fit isn't a fantastic game just because it sells like doughnuts at a fat kid camp, and neither is say...Okami, a bad game even thought it had poor sales. If Killzone 2 had sold just 1 copy, to me, I would still think it is a great game.
Interesting. I decided against getting KZ2 as I'm not a huge shooter fan, but if there's campaign coop coming, I might give it a look. And that's if i don't have to pay for it.
"So again KZ2=fail in my book!" I found your book...
wont be done, i stake my reputation on it! They would have to have built it initially to allow co-op. Its not something they can just throw in willy nilly. With the way they design it in a single player campaign they can effectively "cheat" with how its made in some ways. With two people they cant do this, insomniac explained this after people asked for co-op in thier single player campaign.
The fanboys claiming the game is already perfect are actually doing the game quite a disservice. There is always room for improvement, but acting like the game shouldn't change prevents positive changes from happening. Co-op, controls, party system... these are all things that if added or improved could change the game for the better, but it won't happen if the most dedicated Killzone acolytes stick their heads in the sand just so they can claim perfection. Is winning an argument really that important to you?
Dont try to talk some logic into the hardcore Sony fans who claims this game is perfect.. They might come out of their Dreamland and realise how crappy the PS3 is!
Co-op would be pretty damn sweet. I mean you're with at least 1 other character for almost the entire campaign. Or maybe they'll R2 it and go separate co-op campaign. ...or maybe they won't do any co-op and people are just hyping a map pack or something.
never really thought about online, i was thinking split screen. Online coop would be an amazing addition. i barely played R2's competitive once after the beta. Online coop is a great innovation..
I can most def see the announcment being the addition of co-op, after that so called big announcment from sony last week being a 99$ PS2 they just can't let us down! well can you sony? Please don't!
haha it wont be Co-op, and if it is ill buy you a 2nd ps3. Im guessing a map pack, but im really hoping for new weapons and maps in one pack.
as sweet as that would be, but us as PS3 users lets not hype the crap out of this possibility to only be let down again.
speaking of Killzone 2 is there need to put PS3 in the title? it's the only system it's on...
Remove the chin hair of the characters. It's just a game, so much for realism.
what do you mean remove the chin hair, they're men not women
I dont care if the graphics take a knock,just make it work. But,if its more maps and vehicles ! i'll still be happy :D
A welcomed edition to an awesome game if this comes to fruition
this is awesome
It's not Co Op. They can't just "patch" co op into the SP campaign like it's a couple lines of code here and there. It would take many many months of hard labor to get that going, if it's even possible at all in terms of missions flow and gameplay. So...for co op that leaves R2 style side missions - which is also something that there's no chance would already be ready for consumption this soon. Realistically, I would say maps, perhaps a new mode. 2-3 man Warthog style vehicles on some larger maps would be quite awesome.
...of Mech, tank and jeep battlefield. Pure joy to take a Mech down on foot with an RPG or be scooting around a Mech with a jeep with someone blasting away at it with a grenade launcher or minigun. Awesomeness. Oh well, back to warhawk.
Prepare to be disappointed.
You don't get to play it, do you? :)
He's been dissapointed in that fact for a long time. He's just huffing and puffing.
the only reason I'd be dissapionted is if you were playing.
they already said NO and that was from an official source. just keep the bloggers hyping BS, like the big PS3 announcement last week If anything it will be a new map pac for 10 bucks
who cares, but if were true it would be nice!
this needs to happen. Vehicles may ruin a good thing. Im thinking maps, new modes and new skins.
Should be easily implemented. But frack, games will be over in minutes. Vehicles on larger maps would make the game better. And they need to redo the ranking so it's harder to get - also should be easy to do.
CO-OP FOR KZ2: http://www.youtube.com/watc... :)
there is NO WAY it's gonna be CO-op, sadly. Probably a map-pack or maybe even multiplayer mode...skins? lol. Just look at the way the game is made - would it even work in co-op?
My current song choice sums it up. The Offspring - Million Miles Away
dont think certain members are going to be playable. . . .those certain members,like the one with you through the 1st couple stages.
that mark absolves people from being responsible for their actions.
if this game was more like BATTLEFIELD BAD COMPANY it would be unstoppable.untill then BAAAAAAAAAAD COMPANY will remain the KING of FPS!!!
LOL @ THIS WEBSITE TITLING IT "Killzone 2 to get Co-Op soon on the PS3?" like its a Multiplatform game..
and so when thursday comes and everyone has got hyped up over whatever it is and they dont get what they want, everyone will slag off KZ2/Sony. How misleading is that title. Really come on how many people on this site really know enough about english to know what a ? means. the rest will just fail to see it and read; Killzone to get co-op on the ps3. you lot just never learn. this was so obviously done to get the negativity going, if you get my drift. Also, bet you if its not co-op the mighty Jason360 and his idiot cronies will be straight in here or a similar thread proclaiming how everyone has been let down.
BINGO!!!! Everytime there's a question mark, it just seems the intention is to bring out a valid point where in fact, it's just to fuel the constant flow of negative articles submitted. "Jason360 and his idiot cronies" AHAHAHA
your right, it's only speculation, but we can all hope can't we?
So no co-op for Killzone 2 on the XBox3FixMe RROD Blah blah!
I would buy this game then, but in the future I dont plan to buy shooting games that lack this feature, COD5 lacks it, Im out.
Bit strong? My favourite FPS games in recent memory: Kz2 CoD4 Bioshock Crysis HL2 None of which include co-op. I'm a big fan of co-op, but I'm a bigger fan of computer games in general. I'm not going to miss a treat because it lacks one thing, no matter how big that maybe.
Enough with writing a statement: "Killzone 2 to get Co-Op soon on the PS3." Then adding a question mark: "Killzone 2 to get Co-Op soon on the PS3?" Just because you put a question mark at the end of a group of words does not mean that you have posed a question? Why cant people just pose questions, like: "Will Killzone 2 have a Co-Op mode soon?" "Will Killzone 2 soon have a Co-Op mode?" Usually people do this to pretend that their articles are unbiased. Yet the bias is there in the title. This is not the case in this article but I always see this sort of thing and its dishonest and annoying.
Online co-op in Resistance 2 kept me coming back. Warzone is nice, but it gets old, and it's too hard to play with friends. Online co-op would definitely bring on a lot more gamers.
I would love some kind of expansion pack. Maybe a few more levels playing out another conflict area on Helghan! God that would be so much fun. I loved Killzone 2.
i can't see how co-op would work.. for example, the part where you fight the atrac is too small for 2 players. then there's the part where you ride the cable car, no way 2 players would fit in there. the announcement is not about co-op. it's probably about DLC.. i'm hoping it's free DLC
perhaps, but they still could make a new campaign based on co-op like in resistance 2
Jeez, the games great. They said co-op wouldn't have been up to that level which is why they left it out. If they left it out of RE5 it would have been better. O, U know people love co-op but it isn't always the right move-just a popular option. KZ2 is fabulous and the best FPS, for my money this gen and though I want more than map packs and extra weopons I'm not wanting co-op and esp not vehicles. Maybe some new missions for co-op a la R" and some cool new MP modes or more SP campaign but real co-op /vehicles wont happen anmd I don't mind. The game rocks.Get rid of the silly COD4 " I want all my games to feel the same" control option too as everyone who wanted it still likes the hugs they get from floaty COD4 anyway. Back to the fabulous controls of the beta being mandatory for everyone.
There is no co-op. There will be a map pack with vehicles, harder ranking, new weapons. Which should have been included at the beginning. But it's too late for me, i've sold it.
the more players that can play Co-Op together, the better... Halo 3 and Resistance 2, have made mowing through enemies with a group of buddies in a FPS... awesome and isn't this the gen of, more is better?
do to too many games I've been buying for my 3 consoles this gen... But I just now finally made it to Radec, can anyone give me tips on how to beat him? cause dear god his Raiden like @$$ is owning me... there is YouTube video of a dude owning Radec with the knife, in under like 3 minutes on a hard difficulty... that guy sickens me, lol... I also must say that I mainly want MORE game modes. This is something I felt lacked from the get go. I DON'T like the mash up game modes in Warzone. I would like game modes to be seperated into their own game modes. Like capturing the radio towers, have that be only 1 mode. ETC.. Cause I so badly just want to play me against everyone in a deathmatch. I'd also like more maps, guns, vehicals, etc.. I mean other games already offer all this stuff, why not KZ2?
hey man, I cant tell you if this will work for you or not, but it did for me. My game save had me starting the fight with radec upstairs by the staircase, so I would jump down the staircase and go to the corner of the main room that had a rescessed area, put my back to the bookcase, got out my shotty and waited. Every now and then he would transport close and run at me with his knife, and I would just unload the shotty him and he would transport somewhere else, then he would comeback and we would start the dance all over again. It took several hours of dying to finally get him but hey I got him. You may want to try this, not saying that it will help, but it cant hurt.
ive put 70 hours + into kz2 online MP and i dont really miss co-op at all. i want new maps, new badges and new weapons though. i'd pay for those.
Capcom built it for Guerilla Games just like they did for their own RE5. Capcom will be selling us the unlock key for Killzone2 co-op at a whopping 600kb download for $9.99!!!
it would be a nice addition but only problem is that i already played and beat it and sold it on ebay
-BIG TEAM CO-OP FOR THE HUGE BATTLES. Players can play with "actual" online friends for the huge parts of the games. Examples....Vacari Square, The first landing sequence, and the bridge attack. On the other parts of the game, players can pair off, and play the game where it only supports a ceratin number of players. Co-op is there for everyone, but when the game goes to 2 players...there will be 2. However, as the parts of the game needs more troops, the co-op (Or single player singend into a online campaign) will be automatically joined by other online players. (In Gears of War, an online player can have his/her friends join their game....In K2, the same applies It's like using bots, but this time it's other online players, looking to join the battle. (Those looking to play with someone/group could jump in, just like the multiplayer.) I NEED TO MAKE ME A GAME, THIS IS A GREAT IDEA. Think Resistance 2, but WITH A STORY THAT MATCHES 32 PEOPLE. I think MAG will try to do this.
the stages all have the same battle cluster. the round begins and everyone will race to the same parts of the map, because the number of kills during death match mode is so limited. southpaw79=psn check my stats on killzone2.com. i am not a great player, but i am far from weak. personally, if the stages were designed like COD's stages, then the game play would favor the tactics based elements of KZ2, if their is any. i don't know, maybe i am strict about fps, but give me timesplitters future perfect and COD:MW1/2, the greatest fps's of all time. sorry halo 3 and goldeneye.
Excellent point. I didn't even think of it that way. I have limited my battle size option to a smaller groups, to get away from that problem.
Having spawn zones only(like in Warhawk) and NO spawn flare would change the tactics and gameplay significantly. Sheez. I don't know why GG made such a frackup with the spawn flare and no gettable spawn zones.
what kind of bad habit are you supporting? I think you're lying. I think you rented it & have to have it returned. Maybe you borrowed it. "you sold it". Yeah right mr. Too cool did you bail your mom out of prison with the money? Is she going back to her "jobs"?
