Killzone 3 Gold, Multiplayer Preorder Bonuses Detailed

Who's in for double experience?

Guerrilla Games managed to jam all that “extra” into Killzone 3 in time for its expected release date. The promising sci-fi shooter sequel has reached gold status according to a recent PS blog post and will indeed launch on Feb. 22, 2011 with full 3D support, online and local co-op components, in-game jet packs, and optional PS Move functionality.

But which version of the game should you get? If you like fake helmets, the Helghast Edition might be up your alley, as it boasts a cat-sized Helghast helmet replica in addition to a game soundtrack, a “Retro Map” pack downloadable voucher, and several pre-order unlocks. If you happen to like simple $60 games, then, well, the normal version of the game should do you just fine.   


 
== TEASER ==I feel like I need to note that the aforementioned Retro Map pack voucher is also a pre-order bonus at every possible participating retailer, including the big three: GameStop, Best Buy, and Amazon. So, if you don’t want to be cut out of part of the day-one multiplayer experience, you should probably consider visiting a store to reserve a copy (as much as that sucks to do).
