Emperor Visari may be dead, but the polluted land of Helghan is still far from safe. With Sony's third entry in its exclusive first-person shooting series, players must battle new breeds of Helghast forces armed with the latest in military technology. Take control of weapons like assault rifles and missile launchers, or use deadly close-combat moves, while exploring nuclear wastelands, arctic regions, alien jungles, and even space to eliminate the Helghast once and for all. Level maps in Killzone 3 are designed to be larger than those from its predecessor, up to ten times bigger, and feature such transport options as jetpacks and land vehicles.
Class-based multiplayer battles for up to 32 players are once again included across various game types. The enhanced graphics engine also offers stereoscopic 3D support for the first time in the series. The "Helghast Edition" of Killzone 3 features the game as well as several other bonuses. Included are a Helghast helmet replica, a cloaking marksman action figure, the official soundtrack, a dynamic PS3 theme, a 100-page art book, two remastered maps from Killzone 2, and a behind-the-scenes featurette on the making of Killzone 3. Also available is a 24-hour head-start on the multiplayer game, where players can earn double experience points and receive full access to all weapons and abilities.
