Killzone 3 Multiplayer Free Next Week

Cap.


Look into my eyes.
As Sony continues to experiment with cheaper entry points to titles (with longtail future purchases such as DLC propping up the profit margins) it looks like the lovely FPS Killzone 3 will be the next test for the publisher.

According to the latest PlayStation Blogcast (and picked up by VG247) Guerrilla’s first person shooter will see its multiplayer portion appear free of charge on the PlayStation Network Store.

Well, a slightly limited version, at least – there’ll be a level cap – and an option to purchase the ‘full’ game for $15 to remove it and continue to upgrade your characters.

It’s essentially a big demo, but with the game available to buy for (probably) less than that $15 in some places, it might be an experiment that’s a little too late.

Killzone 3 scored 9/10 in our review.

    Free is good! But will trophies work? I only had plus for a wee while but wasn’t it the case where full game trials had trophies disabled, if so will this be the same?

        Its not a deal breaker, it is free afterall, but I originally bought KZ3 then sold it when I finished the story ,I had crap internet at the time so multiplayer wasn’t great) and like Youles said I’d like to mop up some multiplayer trophies now.

        Yes, it’s free if you have already bought the game (so actually not free at all as you had to buy it?), but this is for people that haven’t bought the game & are looking to dip their toes in.

    I would also say too late, though this is a good idea for future releases with separate online/offline components.

    I find it gets really boring online after a bit and still have my disk, great idea though.
