Last week when Guerrilla Games introduced its latest DLC pack for Killzone 3 dubbed “From Ashes”, two of the four maps were detailed. Now the developer’s sent live info for the other two, which are retro maps from Killzone 2. Four videos in total: two showing off how the maps look and play now, and two showing how they used to be in Killzone 2. Lots of action to behold. Hit the link.

Video Thirst: Tharsis Depot Now

Tharsis Depot is a “Guerrilla Warfare map for 16 players based on the Killzone 2 classic. After incurring damage during the ISA invasion of Helghan, the depot has been converted to process nuclear Petrusite. The Helghast made extensive use of jetpacks to facilitate the reconstruction process, but the harsh conditions resulting from the damage still made it a grueling endeavor. The ISA have locked their sights on Tharsis Depot now that it’s back in full-scale production, and this time they intend to finish the job they started.”

Video Thirst: Radec Academy Now

Radec Academy is a “Warzone map for 24 players. Devastated by the ongoing struggle between ISA and Helghast forces, the once-proud Radec Academy is now a ruinous shell of its former self. Although the soul of the Academy remains intact, the compound has suffered greatly, with strewn rubble and emplaced StA-3 miniguns serving as grim reminders of the fierce battles fought in the area. As the ISA forces once again push into the Academy compound, attempting to scavenge a downed MAWLR, the Helghast troops hastily fortify their defenses within its perimeter.”

On that same day, a DLC Bundle Pack will be released which includes “the Retro Pack, the Steel Rain Pack AND the From The Ashes Pack – a total of eight maps – for the low, low price of just $9.99.”

    Yeah. It’s really shameful that we haven’t seen another Operations map from GG. It’s the best mode in the game!
