Killzone 2 DLC Bundled, More New PSN Releases

Killzone 2, Wipeout HD, Shatter, and lots of Tomb Raider.


I don't know about you, but I'm totally buying the heck out of Shatter tonight. 
Here's a handy note for those of you who, like me, keep meaning to find some time and get back into Killzone 2. In addition to releasing the new "Napalm & Cordite" pack today, Sony has collected all three of the game's map packs into one bundle. It's now available for $11.99, which essentially gives you three packs for the price of two. If you've kept up with the previous releases, the new pack will run you $5.99.

In other PSN release action, the Fury add-on for Wipeout HD is out for $9.99, Shatter is up for $7.99, and Eidos has a double shot of Lara Croft with Tomb Raider: Anniversary and Tomb Raider: Legend. Both of those games are $12.99 each. Jeff Gerstmann on Google+

Cool I guess, I have yet to get into Killzone 2 at all

COOL MORE KILLZONE

Posted by Mattzz10

I'm still confused about the release of a Call of Duty: World of War demo.  Isn't that game like 9 months old.

Posted by ColinRyan

Wait, Tomb Raider Legend and Anniversary? Are those the first ps2 games released on PSN?

Posted by kariyanine

No Colin, I think they are PSP releases.

That Fury add-on is pretty damn awesome

@theMcNasty:

Yep, its actually one of the better shooters this gen.

Shatter looks awesome. Too bad I don't have PlayStation 3, though. Otherwise I'd buy it.

I still prefer Resistance 2 personally, but i can definatley see whats so great about killzone 2.

I am really impressed by the quality and quantity of content on PSN and the rate that they are growing. Sony are really showing improvement.

close to a million people still play the game, I think. THere´s no reason not to as it is rather good, and it is still relatively new. Peopel still play warhawk too and that game was out in late 20

When I come back from break there will be a lot of crap waiting for me on the PSN store. The KZ2 maps, the wipeout fury pack, the motorstorm tracks, capcom v marvel 2, and other stuff.

Wow Shatter, KZ2 maps, and TR:A!?!? Damn oh well at least its all worth it.

Eidos still got some love for sony ? After giving Microsoft exclusive DLC for their latest game I though they were done...

Dude, this was an awesome update this week. I've got Shatter, the K2 map pack, the Wipeout HD Fury expansion, and the Call of Duty: World at War demo all downloading to my PS3 right now. Times like this really make me glad to own a PS3.

@whatisdelicious: Occasionally getting some DLC and a demo for a game that's been out for almost a year makes you really glad you own a PS3?

Posted by spilledmilkfactory

i'm digging this week's updates. i'm not sure if i want the kz2 and wipeout content, as i was really into both of those games before but i've moved on since. i just finished downloading shatter, though, and i think it looks awesome. also for psp owners, there's a dissidia demo out which i'm about to play. couple that with the sale that was going on for some psn games (i'm not sure if the sale is still going on, but if it is it contains some great deals) and my psn games have gotten more attention than my retail games lately. savage moon is sweet!

Boo games that have paid DLC maps in production while the actual game is being worked on. DLC should be determined after the product has proven successful.

Then again Sony knew the exclusive-hungry would gobble up a million copies post haste. Allowing them to sell you maps that should and COULD have already been in the initial retail release.

Comet Crash is way better. It's not an ordinary Tower Defense game and has a pretty unique multiplayer. I'm pretty sure it has a demo (lol PSN) so I would very much recommend it. Thinkin about writing a review, but I'm just too lazy.

You forget Eidos is no more...thats what happens when you fuck with Jeff Eidos...LOL. 
 Besides those exclusive DLC for Tomb Raider: Underworld were not that good...actually they were crap. But I really don't think Sony are that worried about that game, they have their own "Tomb Raider" and its much, much better then Tomb Raider.

@MrKlorox:

You're completely missing the point. GG has paced the DLC for Killzone pretty well to keep the game fresh and the community active. Besides simply because you think the DLC was in development before the game was officially release (I'm not exactly sure why?) that doesn't mean it could have been completed in time to put it on the disc...

awesome. Killzone 2 an excellent multiplayer. Warzone all day baby!!!!

and these map packs are literally above and beyond what some of Killzone 2's competitors are coming up with. Some of the best map designs EVER!

Hell yeah the game is a blast online. I know in this site most users are xbots, they must only play the laggy gears of war lol they must like the host advantage.

Just d/l the new maps last night but not played enough of them yet.  They look pretty good though.  Alone with Halo 3, Killzone is my favourite online FPS i have played in a long while.  It would be even better if i was any good at them as well :-).


Must admit i think the timing of the bundle stinks a bit.  It was not that long ago that the 2nd pack was released so i would imagine quite a few people who bought the 1st 2 were going to buy the 3rd pack.  Now you can get a buy 2 get 1 free so it's a kick in the teeth for all the people who have payed for the single packs.  I know it's not a great deal of money, it's just the principle i suppose.

I literally dropped my jaw when I saw the new interface of WipEout Fury. The new skin for all the ships right when you get the update is awesome, the new tracks look more futuristic than ever, etc. etc. I highly recommend anyone who does not have WipEout HD to BUY IT NOW, it's $15 and even $20 was still a steal upon release. If you have HD and haven't played it in awhile like me, don't hesitate to get Fury, it reminded me of why I loved HD so much.

Tomb Raider Anniversary and Tomb Raider Legend for 12.99 each? Sweet! Count me in. I have missed not being able to play those since my 360 died.

This is Great news!!!

@theMcNasty: Apparently the idea of multiplayer fps's lasting more than 4 months is lost on you. What a dumb thing to say.
