Killzone: Mercenary Getting 2 Free Maps Tomorrow via Patch, Both Are Updated Killzone 2 Maps

February 18, 2014Written by Jason Dunning


Tomorrow, February 19th, will be a good day for Killzone: Mercenary owners, as two free maps will be added to the game through a new patch going live at 12PM GMT/early morning for North America. The update will be mandatory if you want to play multiplayer and takes up 167MB of space on your memory card (or 526MB if you haven’t downloaded any Mercenary updates yet).

Here’s a rundown of the new maps being added to multiplayer, Tharsis Depot and Blood Gracht:

Tharsis Depot

After incurring damage during the ISA invasion of Helghan, this subterranean mining platform has been converted to process nuclear Petrusite. Now that it’s back in full-scale production, the ISA will again battle Helghast and mercenary forces between the structures of Tharsis Depot. This time they intend to finish the job they started. Under the cavern’s artificial light this is a great map to play Guerrilla Warfare or Warzone on. A Mercenary version of the Killzone 2 classic.

Blood Gracht

Months after the nuclear blast that ruined most of the city, Pyrrhus is slowly recovering. But now with ISA, Helghast and mercenary troops clashing in the suburb’s buildings and winding alleyways, the canals once again run red with blood. This fan-favourite multiplayer map from Killzone 2 is ideal for all game modes.

Undated at the moment, the next update for Killzone: Mercenary will bring offline botzone.

Are you excited for the maps tomorrow? Let us know in the comments below.
