Killzone 3 transforms PlayStation Home

By Brenna Hillier, Monday, 24 January 2011 23:37 GMT


I don’t have any statistics to back this up, but I’d imagine that the Killzone 3 fanbase and those who regularly utilise the social space PlayStation Home are not hugely overlapping demographics. But maybe that will change now that the Central Plaza has been turned into a Killzone themed FPS.

Sadly, the change is not permanent and you won’t be able to respond to nagging friend requests with a BFG.

The US PS Blog reports that Home is to be made-over on January 27 into “Central Plaza defender”, a three-level FPS against the Helghast.

Completing challenges earns Home bonuses, while finishing all levels grants you unlock points for an instant boost in Killzone 3’s multiplayer.

Another feature of the makeover is an Amazon-enabled pre-order booth, where signing your name on the dotted line earns you some exclusive gear: a Killzone 3 jetpack for your HOME avatar; the Unlock and Load Pack, instant access to three Unlock Points to use on the weapon or ability of your choice in Killzone 3 multiplayer; and the Retro Map Pack, featuring two of the most popular maps from Killzone 2.
