IGN: Killzone 3 - The Visual Story of the Helghan Jungle

Developer Guerilla's Killzone franchise isn't known for being very colorful. From its PS2 debut to its PSP iteration to the upcoming Killzone 3, the team behind the franchise seems determined to paint war as the ugly act it is.

Still, amidst the crumbling concrete buildings, twisted rebar and smoke, Killzone is telling a story with its scenery and sparing use of color. While the jungle on planet Helghan isn't as lush and alive as you'd expect, it's nonetheless one of many examples of how color is used to provide context to Killzone 3's universe.

The story is too old to be commented.

That jungle is prolly gonna be one of my favorite levels. Definitely need more levels like this.

KZ3's artistic realism is truly unmatched in the fps genre. Every level has a distinct oil painting vibe.

YA know, when they first announced 'jungle environments' I was thinking lush green jungles >_>

beavis4play2874d ago

have you ever played KZ2? why would you expect lush ANYTHING on helghan?

Sharingan_no_Kakashi2874d ago

I kinda did to. But I'm glad it wasnt. Helghan is a harsh planet so this jungle idea is much better.

AntoineDcoolette2874d ago

Come on guys, we weren't told straight off the bat that Kz3 would take place on helghan! Or entirely on Helghan. : (

I wonder how different the SP jungle map is going to look like from the MP version.
