First Killzone 2 DLC Announced

#1 Posted by IceColdGamer (605 posts) -

It's called the Steel & Titanium pack, and features two new multiplayer maps. The first one is Wasteland Bullet, which takes place on a train, and the other is Vekta Cruiser, which takes place on...well, a Vekta cruiser.

The pack should be out at the end of month, and as of yet, there's no word on pricing.

Huzzah.

only two maps? that's kind of a dissapointment actually... I'd like a new game mode and maybe even another class....

You'll cave when everyone else is playing it. I'm so glad it has the train map on it. It looks really cool, and it was awesome hearing them talk about the way you can jump between carriages. Really looking forward to that map.

They also hinted a "retro" map pack is on the way.

Don't forget the LBP Killzone 2 costume packs - a far superior product in every way : )

Embed of the video showing the two new maps -they are taken from the campaign and looking pretty roomy! which is nice.


  


Also note that he points out a hint at the next map pack, apparently its going to be a retro pack - maps form killzone 1 maybe? that would be pretty sweet as there were some badass maps on that game (i want the park tbh :D)

One thing im wondering is whether greandes and projectiles will be affected by the wind on the train as they were in the campaign? if so then its gonna be an interetsing day for those not realising it

Because its maps that probably should of been on the disc coming out this soon after release. Two maps isn't reason enough to pay for in the first place.

Jeez not this again :/ if anyone still thinks that by the time the disc goes gold theres not already other stuff in the pipeline being worked on for the future, or stuff that just missed the deadline and therefore is being released once properly finished - then they should just. stop. thinking. like . that

Its the age we live in, it's how making games works, the exact same was said about gears maps -if you are offended just dont buy the damn stuff

Offended is a dumb word to use there...definitely doesn't fit and isn't that at all. It doesn't change the fact that what I said is true. I also realize though that these people want money like anyone else, so this is what will happen most likely. Doesn't matter whether it should or shouldn't or what anyone really thinks, its going to happen this way regardless. It however doesn't mean there isn't a reason to call out stupid bullshit when it happens, even if you can't do anything about it.

ok, after watching the vid, i think the maps looks pretty cool. i might change my mind about this. i just hope its not too expensive

I'll hold my judgement until I hear the price. I guess I'd pay five dollars for it (though I don't feel the necessity of more maps as of now). But more than that is just stealing.

x2.

It's kind of depressing to be living in an age where people not only expect to pay for map-pack DLC but border-line demand it.

Especially only two maps.

I have faith GG will go the Criteron route.

Seriously, don't expect this for free. I very much doubt it will be free.

I don't really see why people are expecting it for free -- they probably started work on the maps after the game went gold.

That kind of stuff is normally in game updates, and free. Normally. Although, in my opinion, I consider that to be TRUE DLC, instead of several maps.
#19 Posted by Meptron (1085 posts) -

he mentioned new features in that interview. hopefully that's something cool. of course this will cost money, but hopefully it'll only be $5.00? Beyond that, i'm not so sure I'd get it.

So apparently it's free. Can't wait.

Also, for anyone who hasn't seen.
