Those who already own Killzone 2 and 3 on PS3 but missed the original Killzone will be able to download the original in HD next month.
Last week Sony revealed that they would be releasing the Killzone Trilogy collection. The boxset contained Killzone 2, 3, and an HD remaster of the original Killzone. Sony mentioned that they would be releasing the title on PSN as a standalone product but didn’t go into much detail.
On the PS Blog, Sony confirmed that Killzone HD would be launching alongside the Killzone Trilogy on October 23, but only on PSN. The HD remaster will see Killzone be upgraded with a 720p resolution, 30fps, MSAA filtering, sharper textures, and higher quality sound effects. Guerrilla Games has even taken the time to go back in and play with the controls so that they mirror those of the new PS3 releases. Oh, and let us not forget about trophy support. The full list can be seen on the blog.
Killzone has players taking on the role of Jan Templar, a supporting character in Killzone 2, as his home planet is attacked by the Helghast. Killzone is most certainly a different type of shooter than the later games. Players will also be able to play as Rico a sergeant, Lugar a deadly Shadow Marshal, Hakha the half-human, half-Helghast spy throughout the campaign.
Killzone HD will not feature multiplayer. However, the offline bot mode will still be playable.
Killzone HD is out October 23 on the PSN and will cost $14.99 for the game, or you could buy it as part of the Killzone Trilogy, which will cost $39.99 / €49.99 / £40.84.
