Remember late last month when the net was set ablaze with rumors of Killzone 3 news to surface as early as February of this year? Well, that might not be so crazy after all.
New is starting to surface in licensed Magazines hinting that Guerilla Games´s sequel to Killzone 2 just might be slated for release in 2010. To milk it even more, Killzone3.com is being docked by none other than Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, and the docking site expires on the 8th of October, 2010.– seems so convenient for the site to launch at the the beginning of the holiday season, doesn’t it? If this information rings true than you can count on hearing news on the subject very, very soon.
Killzone 3 might just be Sony´s contestant to take on Microsoft´s tyrant, Halo: Reach, in the no-holds-barred first-person shooter grudge match. God knows that Halo´s hype train has already reached (pun not intentional) great momentum. Killzone 3 might just have to enter this fight as the underdog and take us all by surprise. It takes balls to go up against the greatest selling first-person shooter of all time, and I think that Guerrilla Games might just have what it takes.
Look at the first Killzone game – although it may not have been well received among the gaming press it was certainly recognized for the power-house graphic it sported. Killzone was one of the games that truly showcased the power of the PlayStation 2. Then, the next installment, Killzone 2 did it again – blew the mind of both critics and gamers. The graphics were revolutionary for the first-person shooter genre – the lighting engine made all the difference in the game. All this after only two and a half attempts (Killzone: Liberation being the half attempt) at making the game.
There´s no question about it – Killzone has definitely left it´s mark in the industry. It could be the rising star that could dethrone the current king of the genre and claim the crown for itself. If Guerilla Games stick to their guns and blow our minds like they did with Killzone 2 it might just be a reality, but for now Halo: Reach looks like it might just remain champion and quite possibly earn itself the title of “Game of the Year, 2010”.
Well, stick around because if Killzone just so happens to be planned for 2010 we will quick to report it. There´s a Sony Press Event happening late next week and it will be then and there that all will be revealed.
