About Killzone: Mercenary

Developed by Guerilla Games Cambridge, Killzone: Mercenary is an upcoming first person shooter for the PlayStation Vita. Play as the all-new Mercenary faction, taking on paid contracts not only from the dangerous ISA, but the vicious Helghast as well. There is no good. There is no evil. There is only the mission... And the money.
