SCEE Releases Killzone Details
Sony Computer Entertainment Europe announced recently details concerning its new squad-based first-person shooter Killzone. Developed by formerly titled Lost Boys Games (now Guerilla development studio), the game is a single-player online title. The setting for Killzone is the near future where colonization of planets is a strong threat. Forces close to Earth are struggling against a military faction known as the Helghast. Players assume the role of a soldier (four in all) that is sent on a mission to defeat the Helghast forces.
Killzone takes place following a bomb attack against a human colony. The gameplay is inspired from different 20th-century theatres of war, including the trenches of the Somme, the street fighting of Stalingrad, and the guerilla warfare of Vietnam. Scheduled for release in Europe in Q3 of 2004, Killzone currently has no North American release date announced. PSX Extreme will keep you posted on any further information.
