On sale Tuesday 20th January, the latest issue of Official PlayStation Magazine UK will have the first official Killzone 2 review, Future publishing announced this morning.

Not only do you get a review, you get a "highly collectable" holographic wallet which has an image of a Helghast trooper on it and it also "shifts colour as the light catches it."

"Killzone 2 is without doubt the best looking game on the PlayStation 3, and we wanted to come up with a treatment that mirrored the visual voodoo which the development team at Guerrilla Games has pulled off," said Tim Clark, Editor in Chief of Official PlayStation Magazine UK.

"We couldn’t be happier with the finished results."

David Wilson, UK PR Manager at Sony Computer Entertainment UK, added:

"Killzone 2 has been a long time in the making, and best showcases why PlayStation 3 is the only console powerful enough to deliver a ground-breaking title of this nature. Who better to partner with than the Official PlayStation Magazine, in order to offer the readers a special collectors edition issue. It’s a great way to celebrate the launch of this milestone game."

Expect the internet to go Killzone 2 crazy from this point onwards. We'll be doing our level best to keep up.

Full details after the break.
