So Guerrilla has been showing off their upcoming magnum opus Killzone 2 to the press for the last couple of weeks. The press has gotten their hands on the Beta which they're sharing with about 30000 other people. The press has also gotten to try out 6 chapters from the singleplayer campaign (full game has ten). New media is starting to appear and I will try to cover it all as best as I can. Sit back and enjoy and watch the lackluster skills of the gaming press have a go at it.

Multiplayer media:
Embargo ended.
Singleplayer media: Embargo ended.

Please note, testers are still under MP NDA. We don't encourage people to spill info and you do so at your own risk.

Release date: Europe - February 25th, North America - February 27th

• Killzone Storyline

Reviews:

NEW! OPM(US) - 5 out of 5
"The buddies alongside you in each battle have been expertly tuned to provide just enough cover and support to actively get your back on occasions, while never making it feel like they could acchieve every objective alone."

"...the believability and consistency are hallmarks of the Killzone 2 expereince. None of the circumstances, weapons you find, locations you visit, or frankly any of the details in the world feel arbitrary. The world is consistently realized in its unappealing flavor."

"...filled with moments that can handily be described as inspiring awe"

- bots in offline multiplayer "perform pretty well"

"Without a doubt Killzone fans, action, and shooter fans of any stripe will isntantly tag this sequel as a powerful contender for teh best game of 2009"

Can't wait to see some single player footage. From the awesomeness multiplayer, I can only expect greatness from the single player.

So we aren't under NPD anymore? Embargo lifted?
I don't think anyone is sure yet. There have been impressions and videos posted from sites, so it seems like the NDA is over.

I hope we see weather effects like snow and rain in the upcoming media. It should look amazing. :)

The beta is fun, but the SP is what I'm really looking forward to. The trailer looked really nice, any word on coop?

Unfortunately, the word is no co-op.

There were some rumors that maybe it would get patched in later, but I don't know how strong that possibility might be.

Those GT videos are awesome. The graphics look better than anything I've seen. The lighting is out of the world, the image quality is superb and the textures also look fantastic.

Honestly, nothing comes close. I cannot believe these are the MP graphics. Looks better than almost ANY other game (SP included).
