Killzone 3 From the Ashes add-on hits June 21

Third $5 map pack for Guerrilla Games' PlayStation 3-exclusive shooter bringing four fresh battlefields next Tuesday; $10 DLC Bundle Pack also coming.

69 Comments

No Caption Provided Guerrilla Games' PlayStation 3-exclusive Killzone 3 was released in late February to warm critical reception. The sci-fi shooter later added the Retro and Steel Rain map packs. Now, the game's multiplayer universe is growing further with a new add-on due out next week.

Debuting on the PlayStation Network on June 21 will be the From the Ashes map pack for Killzone 3. The $5 content includes four maps: two for the game's Guerrilla Warfare mode and two for its Warzone mode.

Killzone 3 adds new maps on Tuesday.
Killzone 3 adds new maps on Tuesday.

The new Guerrilla Warfare map is Mobile Factory, which is set on a moving resource production facility. The fresh Warzone environment is Lente Missile Base, which takes place inside an abandoned missile base at the edge of the Kaznan Jungle.

Guerrilla's announcement of the content noted that From the Ashes would be composed of four maps. However, only two were revealed in the announcement on the PlayStation Blog. The other two maps will be shown "soon," according to Guerrilla Games.

In addition to the new content, gamers who missed out on the first two batches of add-on content can grab both packs and the new From the Ashes content for a bundled rate. The Retro, Steel Rain, and From the Ashes map packs will be bundled into a $10 DLC Bundle Pack, set to go on sale on Tuesday as well.

For everyone saying that KZ3 doesn't look good, try it first. The sci-fi theme had me a little hesitant at first but after playing the game all that went away. The graphics and environment effects are just simply great! Maps are fun to play. The control of your character is awesome. After playing KZ3 i never played Black Ops again. And i love that DLC packs are only 5 dollars. KZ3 is just excellent. Some people complain about the campaign, i actually liked the campaign but after beating it i only play multiplayer and that is where this game is great!

I never buy dlc but Steel Rain was my first ever. I can justify buying KZ dlc because since the game came out I have not bought another title. I adore the multiplayer & will be playing it for for quite a while. Respect to Guerrilla for reasonable pricing.

Kevin: Stop complaining about the story. The quality of the story is as bothersome or as entertaining as the player/ fan thinks it is. I appreciate the review but totally disagree. I found the story to be entertaining and also engaging. It gave me some more background on the Helghast state of mind. You never mention that the game is as entertaining but shorter than the second one and also... I can't wait for the fourth installment. The ending was a shocker in all senses.

I don't even have a PS3 but I felt compelled to come here and say kudos to Sony and Guerrilla for offering the maps at a reasonable price, unlike 99% of the other developers who ask ridiculous prices for their DLC.

I'm not sure if these were special cases, but I stopped playing KZ3 MP because everyone was just playing sniper and spawn killing. Can anyone confirm whether this is mostly true or if it was just unlucky?

Ok $5 for 4 maps seems ok in comparison to $15 but really with the price of games now this should have been included originally. If you want to make extra money please come out with an excellent collector's edition.

More games should be like this. DLC should always be cheap like this, main reason is because it's the developers fault that they didn't include the maps in the first place, so they shouldn't be charging so much for so little.

To anyone hoping for new Operations maps: GG have already stated that there will be NO NEW maps for Operations. Yes, it sucks, but that's how it is.

I bought all the killzone 2 content once..worse decision of my life since no1 was on the new maps and barely on the multiplayer. Also this was before killzone 3 was ever annouced.

4 maps for $5 bucks? What a steal! Definitely getting this. I am a bit disappointed though that there aren't any new Operations maps.

I'd really like to know where the heck are the operation maps at! Seriously GG, stop acting like the mode doesn't exist and friggin' make a map exclusively for that mode to take full advantage of it. Honestly, that is the one mode that kept me playing KZ3 constantly for hours on end but because of the fact that there are only 3 maps that are just copy/pasted for it, the mode gets really boring. Please GG, DO IT!!!

Yes, Call of Duty has expensive map packs. That doesn't matter. This is Killzone. Move on people.
