Killzone 3 Multiplayer May Be Sold Separately on PSN

November 23, 2011Written by Sebastian Moss

With Killzone 3 having released back in February, the number of multiplayer users has naturally dropped to a smaller, more dedicated group of players. In an effort to revitalize the multiplayer component of the game, and bring in a few more sales, it now looks like Sony are planning to release KZ3‘s multiplayer as a separate game on the PlayStation Network.

Over on the European PS Blog, a post detailing tomorrow’s PSN store update included the following:

  • Killzone 3 Multi-play – 50% off for PLUS for 1 week (until 30/11/11)

Eagle-eyed readers spotted the game, and immediately questioned what exactly Killzone 3 Multi-play is. Andy Stewart, from the PlayStation Store Team, replied to one comment, saying:

This was an error on the schedule, sorry for the confusion.

Interestingly, Andy doesn’t deny the existence of the game, or claim he mistyped, and simply admits that the inclusion of the title on the post was due to a scheduling mistake. This seems to suggest that the game will be coming at a later date, so all that’s left to ponder is what Killzone 3 Multi-play entails. The most obvious guess is that Killzone 3‘s multiplayer will be sold as a separate game (hopefully also including DLC), but Sony could always be planning something else.
