Killzone 2 – Multiplayer Maps Preview


12:0803/02/2009Posted by David Scammell18 Comments

Following on from our previous Killzone 2 multiplayer video feature, this time we take a brief look at each of the eight maps included on the Blu-ray disc.

Eight may not sound like an awful lot, but when they range from sandy deserts, derelict market squares, sleek army barracks and a Helghast outpost set aback a nuclear wasteland, the variety and expansiveness of each of the maps will undoubtedly be more than enough to keep your interest. And with more maps said to be included in future DLC packs, it’s clear that Killzone 2 will be every PS3 user’s online game of choice for a long time to come.

    I was looking for something like this. Cheers.

    They all look great and most importantly actually look fun to play. I’m loving the look of Helghan Industries and Visari Hammer. Can’t wait!

    Pyrrhus Ris (the sandy one) and Radec Acadamy look the most interesting, but i’m blown away by the last one :| jeeeeeeeez.

    dosent look like it will be very good to actually play though sure graphics are stunning. but looks so much like a battfield map but theres no vehicals.

    Shows how much you have researched, adamlee66.

    Upon the release of Killzone 2, a patch will be soon to follow that will implement vehicles into multiplayer. It is rumored that this patch will also implement coop play, but this is not confirmed.

    Now if only some, ONE,reviewer would dare anger the great money god of miscrosoft and actually admit that this is the online shooter to play over all others (console based at least), instead of pussyfooting around it, I’d be impressed by the reviewer.

  • bertybonbon said:

    The richness of detail holds up really well from close to far away. The effects of wind are really striking too.

  • Gaffer said:

    Wow underwhelming.

  • Rob said:

    Anyone know if they plan on mouse and keyboard support via a patch? I can’t play shooters with a controller, can’t stand the clunky movement and aiming.

  • Mak said:

    Very nice! I can’t believe how large and diverse these maps are. Even while a single map may just be desert, there are many components to it that make it complete and very fun to play. Unlike most other shooters, it looks like these maps will offer a different and unique way of playing each round. I will be glad to get away from the predictable sniping and camping spots with these vast and beautiful environments. And the lighting is top notch!

  • Kane said:

    wtf i didnt c anything special at all from these videos, its better in some ways then Halo 3 but its not goin to beat CoD anytime soon

    @Mark

    I would say that megamers.com did something to that extent.

    “We’re surprised to see Killzone 2 blows our expectations out of the water with a memorable SP campaign and a stellar MP component. To put it short, this game makes Gears of War 2 look like a high school attempt at gaming and that is a HUGE compliment!”

  • Cybird said:

    Wow, the game looks simply amazing. I don’t want to sound like a fanboy, but I really hope this game helps save the PS3 because it is losing.

    I’m thinking the gameplay will be somewhat of a mixture of Halo and COD:4. Let’s pray they can pull it off.

  • Ogmios said:

    The game looks incredible. Let’s hope we see more exclusives at the same level of quality as Killzone 2. I was thinking about selling my PS3 and getting a 360 but this game changed my mind.

  • Rob said:

    Just not enough variety, the industrial thing gets old fast! It also gives no idea as to the size of the maps.

    an additional occurrence that has been a thrilling time at this point manages a parent furthermore minor lineup business expose a caf surrounding Tomobiki larger so the kids can have a new place to precise any junior talk about techniques. the youngsters exploit this, and various other pubs in the, when using all of them inside school day, over and over again missing Onsen Mark’s college classes the infuriates jacob in order to really no end. and as a result your dog produces his specialized hidden ultimate drink station, Shinobu furthermore Shutaro, so that you can beef up any example with the key about producing it something that the kids won’t in order to do.
