Killzone: Mercenary announced for Vita


Guerrilla Games will be handling what has been the subject for discussion many times since its initial mention.

Officially named Killzone: Mercenary, we got to see a live action trailer of some humans, sporting ISA equipment, kidnapping a little girl for someone who paid – a lot. “We do not ask questions”, the cold blooded mercenary said, as the money was deposited into his team’s account. We later saw some gameplay, which had unbelievable visuals, of that same guy, presumably, slicing the throats of Helghast soldiers and shooting them to Hell and back. We also saw some Vita-exclusive controls, as was expected, mainly utilizing the touch screen for functions such as melee attacks.

Nothing more was announced for the game, but we believe it will be out before summer 2013.

Quench the announcement trailer below!

    That screen shot looks okay, very blurry. But as narwall said it is really long awaited, I’m still waiting on COD info.

    It’s because the stream was not of the best quality, and it sometimes lagged due to traffic. But I assure you, it looked awesome. I’ll find the trailers once they’re online.

    what happened to cambridge, they were suppose to be working on this.
    dam, so i guess that means the KZ game they were working on was probably this not KZ4.
    eh, am i the only one that got a horde mode vibe from that video?
    i dunno that did not impress me in the slightest!

    FAR too many QTEs too!
    its so frustrating when games force you to take your hand off the device to do inputs on the screen, i wish they would move the QTEs to the back touch sensors that way you dont have to move your hands.

    eh, just looks like every other horde mode out there.
    why so many QTEs too?
    what is this, heavy rain!?

    Haha. Just nice prompts to properly kill your enemy. I’m not complaining about that!
