August 18, 2010Written by Zak Islam

Killzone 2’s online multiplayer component is undoubtedly some of the best the PlayStation 3 has to offer. Its addictive, entertaining and detailed online multiplayer mode is what made Killzone 2 shine amongst the PS3 faithful. Guerrilla Games has already shown off the campaign mode for Killzone 3, but what remains to be seen is the PlayStation 3 exclusive shooters’ multiplayer mode. Today, Sony has showed off the game’s gamescom multiplayer trailer offering an insight of what to expect from the mode.

The brand-new trailer contains never-before-seen footage from one of the multiplayer levels, called Corinth Highway. “It is situated on the edge of Pyrrhus, the city which was nuked by Visari in an attempt to decimate the occupying ISA Forces. Now, a handful of surviving ISA and Helghast troops find themselves fighting for every square inch of remaining infrastructure in this broken city, while on the other side of the Pyrrhus River a new theater of war is already developing. The Corinth River level demonstrates a number of exciting multiplayer features, including Exoskeletons – the first of several player-operable vehicles in Killzone 3.” Check out the exciting footage below.

Killzone 3’s multiplayer mode promises to offer tons of new features from its predecessor which Guerrilla believes will create a fresh multiplayer experience that everyone can enjoy. It offers 2 new game modes, a new matchmaking system, vehicles, Brutal Melee attacks and more ranks, abilities and much more as the Steven Ter Heide Senior Producer, Guerrilla Games detailed. Killzone 3 is currently scheduled for a February 2011 release date.
