Killzone 3 Multiplayer Going Free-to-Play
Free-to-play has become a viable strategy for several games in the past year such as Team Fortress 2 and DC Universe Online, and now Sony and Guerilla Games will gift gamers the multiplayer portion of the year-old FPS in all of its glory up to level 10.
Beginning next week, players will be able to download a standalone version of Killzone 3’s multiplayer, which will include all game modes and maps, including DLC from PSN. Sony announced the shift on The Playstation Blogcast Thursday, which will cap players once they level up to “Sergeant”. Upon reaching the rank, gamers can choose to unlock the full experience for a one-time fee of $14.99.
As if maxing out your character wasn’t enough incentive to keep your weapons cocked, players will also be awarded 24 hours of double-experience play for taking the plunge.
Sony and Guerilla Games hope the shift will keep the community fresh and active while providing all PSN users an opportunity to try out the Killzone 3’s main event. The standalone multiplayer will be available for download on February 28.
