Sony has announced that the three games that make up the core PlayStation series, Killzone, will be re-released as a boxed set. This boxed set includes Killzone, Killzone 2 and Killzone 3.
What's more, is that Killzone - originally released on PlayStation 2 - will be getting a full HD upgrade, getting it on the same level as Killzone 2 and 3. Killzone is one of our favorite franchises, with Killzone 3 standing out as the best in our eyes. Guerilla Games has mastered sweeping cinematic storytelling in this franchise, and it really is a must-play for shooter fans who haven't had a chance to check it out yet.
Not only is Sony throwing in Killzone 1, 2 and 3 in a single package but they are also including every single multiplayer map pack from Killzone 2 and 3 completely free of charge. This includes:
Killzone 2 Map Pack Bundle
- Steel & Titanium Map Pack
- Flash & Thunder Map Pack
- Napalm & Cordite Map Pack
Killzone 3 Map Pack Bundle
- Killzone 3 Steel Rain Map Pack
- Killzone 3 Retro Map Pack
- Killzone 3 From The Ashes Map Pack
And that is on top of the core game and all of their respective multiplayer content.
As far as pricing goes, the game is expected to retail at just $39.99, making this an absolute must-have for PlayStation 3 players. Mark your calendars, Killzone Trilogy is shipping on October 23rd and there will be more information between now and then.
