Killzone: Mercenary Looks the Business, We Can Prove It

Posted by Sammy Barker


We’ve paid Killzone: Mercenary a fair amount of attention over the past few days – and have been itching to give you a closer look at the game. If you haven’t read our hands-on preview just yet, divert your orange peepers through here, and then shimmy back to this page for a brand new batch of screens captured directly from our PlayStation Vita.

Finished? The game sounds great, doesn’t it? But we bet that you’re wondering whether the actual visuals live up to the official shots that have been released. After all, publishers have a tendency to touch up images – just look at what happened to Resistance: Burning Skies, it had us all fooled.

Fortunately, that’s not the case with Guerrilla Cambridge’s violent opus. This is every inch the blockbuster that Sony promised, and it’s got the graphics to prove it. But don’t just take our word for it – feel free to feast on the pictures embedded below. And remember, these were captured directly from a preview build of the shooter during gameplay. Unbelievably, they look even better on the system’s screen.

A game firmly entrenched onto my anticipated releases now I own a Vita. Considering this uses the KZ3 engine im not suprised it looks this good, but it is testament to the Vita's hardware prowess that they've managed to transpose one of the most technical engines on the Ps3 across to Vita. Kz3 itself is still the best looking FPS for me on the consoles, so no doubt Mercenary will be looking quite spiffing on release.

Those look incredible.

But how does it run? From the videos I've seen the framerate seems a tad choppy. is it better in person? Or am I just imagining things, lol?

@pikku It does stutter a little bit when it's loading. That may be fixed before release. It's not a huge issue if not, though. It's not like you're shooting through slideshows.

@mangoman3000 Not sure yet, but a demo seems pretty likely if you ask me.
