It’s out on June 11.

Full press release after the break.

Second downloadable Killzone®2 Map Pack announced

Fight your way down memory lane with the Flash and Thunder Pack: two original Killzone® maps remade for PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™)

London, 20th May 2009: The next wave of downloadable content for Killzone®2 on PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™) has now been announced. Prepare for a literal blast-from-the-past in the form of the Flash and Thunder Pack: a download from PlayStation®Store featuring the Beach Head and Southern Hills maps. They’re two of the best maps from the original Killzone® for PlayStation®2 – now completely remade for PS3, overflowing with brutal combat between the ISA and the merciless Helghast and offering gamers even more ways to play the first-person shooter that everyone’s talking about.

The Beach Head map sees the ISA tasked with defending a coastal stronghold against a Helghast landing force. This rain-lashed and windswept battlefield is limited in size – which means more action, more hand-to-hand combat, plenty of sneaking up on the enemy and melee kills galore. The Southern Hills map sees the ISA attempting to storm a Helghast compound on top of a hill. A mixture of built-up terrain and wide open spaces – perfect for headshot sniper kills – this map is full of hiding places and offers the perfect battlefield for a large-scale game with lots of players.

The Flash and Thunder Pack is the second awesome instalment of downloadable extra content for Killzone 2 on PS3 and will arrive in PlayStation®Store on (11th of June 2009). To find out more, please contact your local PR manager.

    Yes. Because what Killzone 2 really needs is more small maps.

    Oh Joy.. more maps for a Craptastic Shooter… When they fix the horribly inaccurate shooting.. maybe I’ll play again, as it stands… I’m mad at myself for believing the hype and plopping down $65.

    Stamp: Yeah, you just suck.

    The fact that a nuke is dropped every 5 minutes bothers me a little… a large bomb would have been fine, but why does it have to be a nuclear bomb? The map, plus everyone inside and out would be killed. Those who survive it somehow should have strips of flesh hanging off their limbs and eyes burned out their sockets — otherwise atomic warfare just got child-proofed again.

    Shit looks awesome.

    I think its the main cannon from the ISA transport ship, not a nuke.

    Wutever chumps.. you and your wannabe PS3 shooter.. Resistance had better more accurate guns… I even proved it to my hack ps3 friends that the bullets rarely shot where the reticule is… Yes I used Burst.. Look me up on Xbox Live.. I’ve dominated in charts on COD & Gears… The game accuracy just SUCKS.. google it and you find 1,000s that agree.. it’s NOT ACCURATE.. the company themself even admited they had to ad a cheater in there… The bullets should go where I aim.. no some arbitrary randomness… Don’t move.. shoot a wall..see where your bullets end up.. the game sucks.. you guys are just mad cuz it’s the only decent Multiplayer Shooter you have on the PS3.. I have both systems.. PS3 collects dust!

    Your point is lost in your disgusting grammar. Typical Xbox Live player. Enjoy your twitch mechanics and grenade spamming. In the meantime, I’ll just sit back and drink your tears. Btw, the map pack will be $5.99 again.

    I can hardly find any MP games running with Steel and Titanium maps down here (AU/NZ), people seem to think they’re expensive.

    Yes i see 1000s lamers who cant play shoters if it hard to play and they can hit the target cause it is to hard, cause it exp. CoD you just need to press zoom a shot thats all, not to balance your gun.I have two systems to, and PC and a can search and find that more then 1000s lamers want to play with mouse and keyboard on console, cause they just suck to play on the pad.Play Half-Life 2 MP forexempl, and you will see, that it doesnt say nothing that you were on the first list of CoD and GeoW, cause you need another skill not, just accurate shots.

    P.S. on PS3 we had a lot of shoter MP, dont say bs.

    a shooter is about shooting… what’s the most important thing in shooting? ACCURACY.. if when I pull the trigger, the bullet doesn’t go exactly where I am aiming, THAT IS FLAWED!!!!.. Make all the excuses you want… That game just isn’t that good.. it’s like any other shooter except horrible aiming mechanics on their guns. They game is MASSIVELY overrated, probably because PS3 doesn’t have any competition in shooters… again.. PS3 collecting dust.. maybe it’s just that HORRIBLY designed & outdated controller for tiny girly hands.

    This is all sorrys and exuses that you say, cause it is hard to aim for your, but over 1 milion play that game online.Yes then you pull a trigger and bullte doesn’t go exactly your aiming that is guns physics, what CoD crap don’t have so far and every lamer and noob can play it.In real world if you shoot with weapon you become a feedback just like K2, and not firering like idiot at one point without feedback.
