Yup, This Looks Like A New Killzone Game Alright.

It's just leaked onto the Internet. Hang on - Killzone-what-now? Killzone 3! Oh - you mean the game that was going to be announced at E3 but's now been outed early? Yeah, that Killzone 3. Oh well, there's another surprise ruined then - but the details are no less juicy.

Perhaps the biggest deal, as per the rumours, is that the game will support full 3D (alongside Sony's upcoming firmware update and their new Bravia televisions). But not just any 3D - oh no - this is the killer-app for Sony's tech. We'd heard mumblings that Killzone 3's implementation of 3D would be a game-changer, and that's exactly what's stated in this issue of GamePro. Exact words: the 3D implementation is "crazy". Nice. In addition to the 3D features, the game also includes jet-packs.

Thankfully, while Sev and co are back, the game will focus much more on Helghast culture. We're not alone when we say the Helghast are by far the most interesting part of the Killzone lore, so we hope Killzone 3 ain't all about Rico and his "rad" buddies.

We've included a whole list of details after the jump (via Gamespot), and screens can be found through here. Consider it an early-E3 present. Who gives magazines these exclusives? They ruin everything.

  • Will show the Helghast have humanity left in them
  • Will have the feeling that “of being in a place far away from home, outnumbered by people who want to kill you.”
  • Will be like Inglorious Basterds.
  • All of the characters in the screenshots are flying in.. jetpacks?!
  • Will include arctic levels.
  • One mission in the game involves rescuing ISA Captain Narville.
  • Game is playable in 3D
  • Have to wear 3D glasses, apparently the 3D effects are “crazy.”
  • Combat is “unchanged from predecessor.”
  • Or is it? Hand to hand combat involves you “Unloading a string of different (and often brutal) attacks on stunned enemies.”
  • The scale is supposed to be “bigger this time.”
  • The Jetpacks are “surprisingly lightweight and agile, Killzone 3’s jetpack is easier to maneuver compared to the sluggish incarnations of the gadget found in other games.”
  • New weapon called the Wasp, basically shoots a “flurry of rockets” at an enemy.
  • Will show off the Helghast culture.
  • There is actually a Helghast language, which will be explored in the game.
  • Will have “diverse locales.”
  • Have to sit in the center of the 3D tv for the 3D effects to work.
  • 3D in this game is called a “Game Changer.”
  • Going to have “Intense Action”
  • Jetpacks double as a weapon, which basically means a machine gun mounted right on top of it.
  • If you shoot Helghast with jetpacks, they’ll “explode like roman candles”
  • To control the jetpack, you “have to activate bursts of speed in midair, propelling yourself across further distances.”
  • The Jetpack resembles something you’d do in platformers such as Super Mario Bros. Or Uncharted
  • In one mission, you have to use the jetpack by “launching yourself from glacier to glacier”
    You’ll see “a lot of” snow levels.
  • Everything is more spread out in this game.
  • The game looks very complete.
