With so many shooters that came out last year, it was hard for gamers to get their hands on them all without putting a decent dent in their wallet. Beyond the heated rivalry between the Battlefield and Call of Duty franchises, 2011 hosted other shooters such as the long-awaited Crysis 2 and THQ's Homefront. That year has passes, but one game has a neat trick up its sleeve to keep itself relevant in 2012, and that game is Killzone 3.
Those who have yet to experience the multiplayer aspect of Killzone 3 will be able to download it and play it for free. The announcement came yesterday as part of the Playstation Blogcast
. Players will have full access to all of the maps, classes, and game modes that Killzone 3 has to offer. The catch is that it is free until one reaches a specified level cap. Once that cap is reached, you can either buy the full game on disc or just buy the Killzone 3 multiplayer, which will run you $14.99.
If you haven't tried it out, Killzone 3's multiplayer plays in a similar fashion to the latest Battlefield games. It's a class-based shooter with 5 classes, each with their own unique abilities and weapon sets. Teams will battle it out in the maps while capturing enemy spawns, building turrets, reviving teammates, and even disguising themselves as the enemy.
The predominant mode within the multiplayer is Warzone. In a nutshell, it's a best-of-seven series consisting of singular rounds of different games modes, randomized in order to keep players on their toes at all times. These modes range from the standard Team Deathmatch and Assassination games, to Killzone 3's take on Capture the Flag and Domination modes. It's a really hectic experience, and one that isn't seen in a lot of shooters these days.
If neither Modern Warfare 3 or Battlefield 3 piqued your interest and you need to scratch your shooter itch, Killzone 3's multiplayer at $14.99 is well worth it. At the least, you can always try it out and see if you like it. Why not? It is free after all.
