Killzone 3 Swearing Reduced to Make it More Impactful

If you’ve played Guerrilla’s Killzone 2 then you’ll know the swearing used by the characters are of large proportions. The swearing used in the shooter, however, was used to a certain extent that it became more of a constant presence rather than having it produce an effect. The swearing will be reduced in the game’s successor to deliver a more impactful experience, Killzone 3‘s game director has said.

Killzone 3 director Mathijs de Jonge believes the studio has hit the sweet spot regarding the amount of swearing present in the soon-to-be-released Killzone 3. The Guerrilla Games man told Edge:

In Killzone 2 we ended up with too much of it. The thing about swearing is that it’s highly effective when it’s done right, and in Killzone 3 I think there’s some swearing but if feels a lot more impactful.

de Jonge added:

It’s at the right times. In total, I think there’s seven ‘f*** yous’ and one ‘mother***er’. I think that’s fine.

You bet that’s f****** right, Mathijs.

Killzone 3 will be released on February 22nd in North America and and February 25th in the UK. For more on the hotly anticipated shooter be sure to check out PlayStation LifeStyle’s review.
