Killzone Trilogy headed to PlayStation 3

Killzone, Sony's dark and forboding first-person shooter saga, will be the latest PlayStation series to get the compilation treatment, developer Guerilla Games has confirmed.

"I'm very pleased to share with you news that I hope will bring some excitement to those readers with a predilection for all things Helghast and ISA and those who perhaps could well have in the very near future," said Michiel van der Leeuw, the studio's technical director, in a post on the official PlayStation Europe blog.

The series tells the story of a war between the ruthless Helghast Empire and the forces of the Interplanetary Strategic Alliance. The tone is bleak, the visuals heavily influenced by Soviet and Nazi architecture, and the combat is fierce and oppressive. Not many giggles then, but a darkly refreshing change of pace from the glossy Hollywood bombast of other shooter titles. The series has attracted top notch voice talent as well, with the likes of Brian Cox, Steven Berkoff, Ray Winstone and Malcolm McDowell all taking major roles.

As the title suggests, the package will contain all three games in the Killzone series, including the original Killzone for PlayStation 2 in glossy HD with full Trophy support. Both Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 will include all the additional multiplayer maps released as downloadable content at no extra charge. Killzone 3 is also compatible with PlayStation Move and can even be played in 3D on 3D supporting TV's.
