We’ll cut a long story short. We went to Amsterdam in mid-May to interview Guerilla and play Killzone 3. We spoke to studio managing director Hermen Hulst and played the game in both 2D and 3D. The original embargo for coverage from the event was June 1, but thanks to leaks from the US press over the weekend (sincere, heartfelt thanks for that), the embargo was brought forward this afternoon. A lot. To today.

The reveal last night of Killzone 3 through Gamepro magazine yielded all sorts of goodies, and the analyzing of the magazine scans has not stopped.
Turns out, there’s information pertaining to Naughty Dog’s hand in the game in the write up.

Animation director Jan-Bart Van Beek was on the said show, and confirmed the existence of the game. He also confirmed they are planning for a 2011 release, although it could be released in 2010. There is no pressure from SCEE to deliver the game for 2010 though, apparently.
Last month, it was reported that the game was in development in the US OPM.
Again, take with a very large pinch of salt. We’ll email SCEE about this one, and see what they have to say.

Over on the EU PS Blog, sound director for Guerilla Games Mario Lavin has confirmed that the full soundtrack of Killzone 2 is now available on iTunes to buy.

It comes with 28 original pieces from the game’s composer Joris De Man, as well as a remix and a digital booklet containing concept art for the game.
You can buy it here.

To celebrate the release of its new map pack for Killzone 2, amongst other things, Guerilla is hosting a Double XP Weekend on PSN.
Starting today until Monday morning, games created will give you extra XP to help rank quicker andunlock Badges.
A Win will earn you a 2.5 multiplier and a Loss will still grant you the normal multiplier for a Win: 1.5. This applies only to individual points, not Clan Valor and will be available in all regions, and if you spot a fella with GG in front of the handle – go for ‘em. It’s one of the Guerilla guys.
More information over on the US PS Blog.

Guerilla has revealed new bits of DLC for Killzone 2 by way of Trophies listed on PSN.
Looks like maps “Suljeva Cliffside” and “Arctower Landing” will be joined by two new multiplayer weapons which are the flamethrower and boltgun.
No word yet on how much the DLC will run or when to expect it since it has not officially been announced.
More through Kotaku.

Sony’s confirmed that Killzone 2 has surpassed 1 million copies sold worldwide, reports GameDaily.
Using the Guerrilla Games shooter as an example of an “only on PlayStation experience,” the firm said the title will “continue to drive incentive for hardware sales throughout the year.”
Just last week, the game was reportedly the only title in PS3 history to reach the 500,000 mark the fastest.
Quick jump in numbers there.

The latest issue of Edge, number 199 to be precise, has given Guerrilla Game’s nuclear-shooter a rather surprising 7/10.

The full list of review scores in the issue are as follows:
- Killzone 2 – 7
- FEAR 2: Project Origin – 8
- Halo Wars – 7
- Race Pro – 8

Below you can see some images showing missile launchers, explosions and red-eyed bad guys.
We reckon this could be a game of the year candidate already, and we’ve got the review scores to prove it.
Killzone 2 launches February 27.
Take a look.
Update: These screenshots are apparently taken from an SCEJ press release stating that Killzone 2 will be released on April 23 in Japan.

As part of SCEE’s £2m Killzone 2 marketing strategy, the company will be releasing a web-game or Firefox and Internet Explorer users that invites players to fight in teams against the ‘Helghast threat.’
“We’re very excited about our online campaign,” Killzone 2’s UK product manager Phil Lynch said today.
“What we’re attempting has never – to my knowledge – been done before, certainly as a piece of communication.
“In essence, we’re creating a web game based on a Firefox and IE app that consumers can download to their computer, and where they can then create their squad consisting of up to three additional friends.
“Once running and activated, and when the user is browsing the internet, their screen will be ‘attacked’ by Helghast as they browse pages,” he went on. “They can alert their squad members to come and help them and if the team can collaboratively vanquish the Helghast threat, they’ll get their score posted onto the leaderboard and be in with a chance to win some prizes and unlock additional content.
“It’s very innovative and something that I believe will resonate with our consumers.”
No date for the web game has been set.
We’ll check with Sony now.

Sony has moved to quash various speculation and internet rumour about co-operative play for Killzone 2 being patched in at a later date.
Speaking to videogaming247 this morning, a senior Sony representative told us that “there are no plans for co-op in Killzone 2.”
Obviously that doesn’t mean if will never, ever happen, ever ever. But seriously, stop holding your breath.
Some Killzone 2 reviews went live last night and the Guerilla Games mega shooter scored highly across the board.

On a recent episode of G4 television program X-Play, Sony officially announced the drop date for next first-person man-penetration sim, Killzone 2.
And contrary to an earlier Gamespot report, it’s February 27, 2009 – not February 17.
However, as of now, that date only applies to North America. Other territories are still TBA.
More Killzone 2 tomfoolery through the link. Also killing, we guess.
