Killzone: Mercenary is a new first-person shooter in the Killzone series, developed specifically for the PlayStation Vita platform and powered by the stunning Killzone engine. Starting just after the ending of the original Killzone, and revisiting many of the events from the Killzone trilogy, the game puts players in the rugged combat boots of a mercenary named Arran Danner. Danner is a former UCA-soldier who has no qualms about taking on paid contracts from the ISA as well as the Helghast.
When a seemingly routine mission to evacuate the Vektan Ambassador and his family in Pyrrhus goes awry, Danner discovers that the outcome of the war could very well depend on the fate of the Ambassador’s young son. With both sides going to increasingly desperate lengths to get hold of the boy, he begins to wonder whether the price of victory is really worth the paycheck.
Comprised of nine single-player missions — each nearly an hour in length— Killzone: Mercenary delivers a full Killzone experience in a portable package. Completed missions unlock additional replay challenges, with a host of special objectives to accomplish. The game also boasts a full-fledged multiplayer mode with six maps tailored for eight players and three different game types, including the popular Warzone mode.
In keeping with the soldier-for-hire theme, every action in Killzone: Mercenary is rewarded. The better you perform, the higher your payout – not just in the single-player campaign, but also in the multiplayer mode. The wages you collect are deposited into a single bank account, so the money you earn in the campaign missions can also be used to buy gear and weapons for multiplayer matches, and vice versa.
Killzone: Mercenary makes full use of PlayStation Vita’s considerable input and graphics capabilities. It enhances the familiar dual-stick FPS control scheme with touch controls for actions such as brutal melee, and with tilt controls for accurate sniper aiming. The game even uses the powerful Killzone 3 engine to bring its massive environments and impressive set pieces to life. But don’t just take our word for it — watch the trailer above, and check out the new screens in this post.
Stay tuned to Killzone.com and PlayStation.Blog, because we’ll have a behind-the-scenes interview with game director Piers Jackson soon.


Thanks to Train, Prp777, and Yorky for their threads. I took all their threads and created this official thread.

I looked at the trailer and I was like NO WAY!!! Dang I really hope with this game, more consumers will buy the Vita and this should be proof to those lousy developers (The ones that underestimate the system) of what the Vita is capable.

Lethal, you are getting me all hot and bothered with this iron fisting of yours. Almost as good as how good this game looks to be. Almost.


I <3 Innuendos.
OMG can you believe those complainers on PS Blog? I wish I could swear over there because I'd curse every single one of them out!
Horrible Graphics? WTF Are you eyes on the end of a sh*t stick?
This game looks amazing, has great framerate, a deep story (or a real story) and it freaking has loads of content, don't get on Vita's case because they don't have one. God if this doesn't please you then just stay the fuck off PlayStation Blog...

How dare you put all of the information in one convenient place, Lethal! Shame on you! Three day ban.

There's an article on the Lounge as well.

Wooooh! That campaign footage is looking downright gorgeous already and it doesn't come out for another 8 months. Reminds of when I first saw Syphon Filter for psp. I could go on for a little while about the little things that stood out to me, but I'll just say good job Cambridge studios. (y)

Oh yeah, I'll still keep my fingers crossed in hopes that they find a way to increase the player count for multiplayer before launch.

" Match stats and heat maps of recent encounters will also be available, and any cash earned in multiplayer can be used in the the campaign – and vice-versa. Guerrilla is also using the Vita Party app to allow friends to quickly find each other and set up online fights."

So that does indeed confirm online?
They already confirmed online if you read the PlayStation Blog.

I'll throw them my shoe lace!
That'll teach them! :O
Throw the book at them!

Trust me its a good way to learn fast

He didn't.
He just locked the other threads (that were around for hours/days and had many responses) and made his (that was only 5 minutes old and only had 1 reply at the time) the official one.

I'm not sayin. I'm just sayin.
I made this official thread because we had too damn many threads being made...
