At this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo, Sony revealed that Killzone 3 would arrive sometime next February. Eager fans of the series won't need to worry about the first-person shooter interfering with Valentine's Day plans, as Sony today announced that Killzone 3 will launch on February 22.
As the name suggests, Killzone 3 will serve as a direct sequel to 2009's critically lauded Killzone 2. In last year's title, the Interplanetary Strategic Alliance took the fight to the Helghan homeworld, where they achieved a measure of success against the Nazi-esque civilization of invaders in the 2004 original.
For the third entry in the series, Amsterdam-based Guerrilla Games will be fleshing out the Helghan homeworld with more enemy types, larger and more diverse environments, and jetpacks. With the futuristic personal conveyance, gamers gain the ability to thrust skyward for a limited period of time, affording them access to heretofore unreachable locations and opening up the possibility of aerial gunfights.
Killzone 3 will also support Sony's PlayStation Move peripheral, as well as stereoscopic 3D displays. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
