Killzone: Mercenary - Gameplay Video
Check out gameplay footage from Killzone: Mercenary for Vita.
Could this finally be the first GOOD FPS game for the Vita? I just recently discovered the Killzone series, but I'm very excited for this entry. Here's hoping for some good reviews! I'll buy it regardless though.
I would buy a Vita just for this if it allowed me to kill that god awful character Rico from the main games.
All I ask from this title is for it to have a good balance between framerate, graphics, and gameplay. Sadly, a great number of vita games and ports (most of the ports from ps3, AC:L, Uncharted) all seemed to have framerate lags now and then. I just hope that Cambridge Guerilla will be able to pull of a fluid killzone experience that will finally prove that first person shooters can be played anywhere, anytime. Not to mention this is one of the few worthwhile exclusives other than Gravity Daze and the upcoming Soul Sacrifice (Yes, I might have missed one or two. Don't slaughter me over it). Oh, almost forgot Project Diva -F-, best game ever created! I'll make you all do the miku miku >_<
It was inevitable that a portable FPS Killzone would release for the Vita, but you guys can really stomach the cheese here?
Glad it appears they are actually giving the term 'mercenary' some meaning. Will hopefully put a nice little twist on the series.
If this game is as good as the trailer, then VITA is going to start pulling developers away from the consoles to make more games for it. If they just thought of it in simpler terms like this is nothing more than PS2 in my pocket with an awesome HDTV built in. Yes I know it's a bit more powered, but it's not as powerful as PS3 so call it PS2.5HD.
I've been waiting for another Killzone game to satisfy my craving. I'm glad to see this game is turning out to be pretty bad ass. Love the visuals thus far. Can't wait to see more!
also, here is extended and bonus video http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=rOy5ztkZr3c#!
This trailer was incredibly cheesy. And I kind of wish they went with a revamp of Liberation; they could've had it so you move with the left analog and fire in which ever direction you aim the right. All this does is lower my hopes for any future success of the Killzone franchise.
I hope this game sells very well. Then maybe companies will see how well vita games can sell if the correct amount of time is put into development.
Wow!! that looks SICK! for a handheld system! I hope it does well :-/, If so looks like i'll be buying a vita lol :-D
Woah, this looks amazing. These graphics look great, I can't believe that's a handheld game. Lets hope this games turns out to be a good one, we know Vita needs it.
according to ign its going to be set after killzone 1 and cover the event of the 2nd and 3rd killzone.
well this looks fantastic, i did enjoy the 2nd and 3rd killzone, so hopefully this one as well. and yes! finally it looks like the vita will get a real fps instead of that half a** cod we got. now all we need is some solid rpgs and the vita is set!
WOW i personally feel so jealous to you VITA owners ... this game looks stunning!!! It's surprising though! it's KILLZONE! I hope all you VITA players buy this incredible game and support their devs cuz this is worth it !!!!
Seems pretty cool, but let's hope the final game turns out good as well. A lot of games have great trailers and then can't live up to them.
Trailer did nothing for me. And people rip on Nintendo for "more of the same". This looks like just any other Killzone......aka another shooter. I think my Vita is heading to Ebay soon. I can get better versions of most games for my PS3, which I also barely touch.
Here's hoping for good sales- I'd hate to see this tank the Killzone series the way Burning Skies did to Resistance. I still think hinging the future of a great series on one portable outing was a bad idea- particularly a rushed one given to Nihilistic.
But Guerilla (and what I'll assume is the remnants of Psygnosis? they were based in Cambridge if I'm not mistaken and they certainly know their way around the Vita after Wipeout 2048) is great at making shooters, so I hope this turns the Vita's tide
I hear you on that just finished playing killzone 2 and finishing up killzone 3 and ya I find myself wanting to kill the guy pretty much all the time totally a throw-a-away character if I ever seen one..
@LittleChatelain Rico has to be one of the DUMBEST written video game characters of all time.
@kljhkll I find this spam justified.
@salvucci91 After COD: Declassified and Resistance: Burning Skies, I'm sure most vita fans, myself included, are willing to overlook the cheesy commercial so long as the game ends up as awsome as it looks.
@JunoWalker Vita is like a Ps3 just doesn't have the raw polygon count and well the Ps3 has Cell which does a lot of work.The Rsx is a shit Gpu,Sony should had went with Ati on Ps3.The 360 Gpu is a amazing gpu for it's time,that said the Rsx is a shader monster when it was released.I know Pc's had better hardware at that time as well.Hell my 450GTS paired with a E 5200 duo can bitch slap both Ps3/360.Still game like God of war3,Ascension,Killzone2/3,GT5,Uncharted 2/3,Halo 4,Forza 3,Horizon,Gears of War 2/3,still impress me with that level of hardware.
That is just amazing.
@salvucci91 Uhh someone's trolling.
@JuanGrande386 Troll Much? I love Killzone,its not just another shooter.I like the story ,setting,and the graphics.So please if your going to Troll do it elsewhere.
@JuanGrande386 This is a portable game. Please be advised that is why Mario portable games are made because you can play wherever you want to be or are forced to be.
@grey_fox1984 People need to understand Nihilistic is a bad dev.Both resistance and COD were rushed.I heard COD was made in 9 months to a year.Killzone Merc has been in development for quite some time. %s They really are going all out on this game.
