Guerrilla has announced over on the US PS Blog that Killzone is almost five, and it plans on celebrating the occasion with a double XP weekend.
Running November 27-30, the double XP weekend includes a Killzone 2 retro tournament, using only the Beach Head and Southern Hills maps from the second DLC pack.
Those who have not purchased DLC for the game, might be interested in the Flash & Thunder Map Pack, which is now on sale for $2.99 and the Map Pack Bundle is down to $9.99 until December 10.

Guerrilla Games’ senior producer, Steven ter Heide, has said that the firm is far from finished with PS3, and while each release of Killzone has been for each Sony platform, it is not waiting around on PS4 to emerge.
“PlayStation 3 has a very long life ahead still, and we’re certainly not done developing for this platform,” Heide told The Gamer Access. “We still see enough opportunities to get better and pushing the platform even further.”
While refusing to comment on future projects, he did reveal that Guerrilla will continue to dish out the DLC for Killzone 2.
“Part of Killzone 2′s focus points was to allow players to create their own customized games as much as possible and to a large extent I think we have succeeded,” he said. “However, we are always looking at the way the community is responding to our designs and will take this type of feedback into consideration for future projects and possibly DLC.
“I cannot tell you specifics right now though.”

Sony has pulled 300 Killzone 2 ads from bus shelters and a local park in Toronto, due to complaints.
The main problem stemmed from a fourth and fifth grade school teacher named Davis Mirza, who emailed Sony because of the “menacing head with glowing eyes” and scenes of war “like Iraq”.
Her reason for being offended was because of the myriad of cultures present in her classroom.
“My kids, who come from a lot of different countries, who have to experience violence, who basically come here to seek shelter and safety, that’s the stuff they don’t need to see”, she said.
City Councilor Pam McConnell also registered a complaint, resulting in Sony removing the ads from a city park.
The ads were to be pulled down in a few days anyway, apparently. All Sony really did was pull them down a bit early.

Bored? Really bored? Want to look at pretty pictures while you count the seconds to blessed release? Take a look at Xavier Marquis’s Killzone concept art while you wait for Killzone 2, if you must. There are nicely drawn pictures of men in black suits with red eyes. It may sound like a Japanese escort bar, but it isn’t. How many seconds did that waste?
