All Articles: Killzone: Mercenary
There’s hockey, puppets, crossovers, alien wars, and ancient RPGs in this week’s PlayStation Store update. For those who couldn’t crack the code, I’m referring to…
- NHL 14, EA Sports’ latest hockey simulation.
- Puppeteer, a new game from Sony Japan Studio that takes place in a magical puppet theatre (and, as far as I know, there aren’t even any evil puppets).
- Street Fighter X Tekken, the only crossover between these two fighting franchises for the forseeable future.
- Killzone: Mercenary, which brings the franchise’s alien war to the Vita for the first time this week.
- And finally, Dragon Fantasy Book II is a PS3/Vita Cross-Buy title that brings back a few memories of the 16-bit RPG age.
For everyone that missed Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts: Re:Chain of Memories the first time around, Square Enix has combined them both into a new high definition re-release known as Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMix. As you may have guessed, it’s in stores this week. Also available this week is NHL 14. The only remaining official hockey game will be released for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
Finally this week, The Elder Scrolls Anthology brings Arena, Daggerfall, Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim together in massive multi-disc PC collection. And EA will release The Sims 3: Movie Stuff, probably the last Sims 3 “Stuff” expansion before next year’s release of The Sims 4.
If there’s anything the PlayStation Vita could stand to benefit from, it’s more games. So it warms this gamer’s heart to get a set release date for one of the platform’s flagship franchises. That’s right, FPSers, Killzone: Mercenary officially hits stores on September 17th.
Killzone: Mercenary is a new first-person shooter in the Killzone series, developed specifically for the PlayStation Vita platform and powered by the stunning Killzone engine. Starting just after the ending of the original Killzone, and revisiting many of the events from the Killzone trilogy, the game puts players in the rugged combat boots of a mercenary named Arran Danner. Danner is a former UCA-soldier who has no qualms about taking on paid contracts from the ISA as well as the Helghast.
But don’t go thinking you’ll have to wait seven excruciating months before seeing anything on the game. Sony also graciously provided a new trailer and some screenshots for game:
More details are available at the PlayStation Blog.
Sony has released the first trailer for their upcoming PlayStation Vita title Killzone: Mercenary. The FPS has been designed specifically for the Vita’s graphical capabilities and unique additional touchpad controls to offer a new take on the Killzone franchise. For the first time players will be able to fight alongside the Helghast as well as the ISA as they take on mercenary contracts during the brutal war between the two sides. The game will allow plays more customisation than previous games as they select weapons ideal for a specific job.
No word yet on how it fits in within the Killzone timeline, especially given the explosive ending of Killzone 3. I guess we will just have to wait until 2013 to find out in this new chapter.
