Killzone 2 @ PlayStation Day, London May 6th 2008
____________________________________________________________________

INTRODUCTION PRE RE-EMERGENCE
____________________________________________________________________

The last build the public witnessed was from E3 07 (which also made an appearance shortly after at Leipzig). It's been quiet ever since.

Well. It's time again. Killzone 2 is fully playable for the press at PlayStation Day in London on May 6th. It's a totally new level from recent code.
After 10 months(!) of waiting it's finally time to take another look. As always, this OP will continuously be updated with the latest info.

I never played the first one but the reviews don't seem that impressive. What is it that makes this game have such a rabid following?

February, hmmm. I guess Resistance 2 gets the FPS audience all to itself this holiday.

I don't know what is it about that KZ2 shot, but something about isn't working for me.

Hey Wollan, I was back in IGN a long time ago when there was a guy named E. Wollan who started the "Kin (Hype/Speculation" thread. I remember that a lot of the hype originated from there, are you the same guy? That thread was huge and created the Halo-killer title for KZ.

It only makes sense -- why have two games from the same company compete against each other when you can release the more hyped title (KZ) later next year when it doesnt need a holiday release for it to gain maximum sales?

Resistance, while it has a devoted following, isn't garnering the same attention that KZ is getting.

what was with the audio warping midway through the video?

Also: despite video artifacting, and the lame ass opening, the explosion effects were pretty sweet from what I could tell. Animations are amazing.

Three things.

1. Some liked KZ1 anyway

2.


3. This one looks absolutely fantastic. At least visually. Gameplay today by the sounds of it!

Still the best looking console game this gen, despite the terrible quality trailer. I love all the shit going on in the sky... really adds to the atmosphere.

To be fair, KZ2 is on a whole other level of wowness. I don't mind the delay now. We have R2 for our FPS needs until February.

And yeah, still the FPS of this gen. I expect positive hands-on impressions.

Terrible quality trailer, we need a HD one ASAP. Get on it Sony.

But despite the poor quality footage the game still looks unbelievable. I still can't believe a console game looks that good. The animations and the way the enemies react floor me everytime.

Its amazing, all the animations help to immerse. People helping others get off the floor, soldiers actually responding to getting shot, explosions that look awesome. If the quality of the textures and colors don't get through in the low-quality video (and they dont), than the animations compensates until the HD video is released.

It really looks like they're spending a shitload of time in animation. Looking forward to this.

Oh wow that trailer quality is borderline unwatchable. I desperately need this in HD. :/
