According to Co-founder and Managing Director of Guerrilla Games Hermen Hulst, Killzone 2 will not be receiving co-op as downloadable content.
"We looked at all the different flavors of co-op early on, but decided our first priority would have to be the single-player experience and the multiplayer," Hulst informed Game Informer. "Rather than just tack on co-op, it would have to be integrated and done to a similar standard as the single and multiplayer."
"Having looked at it again now. I do not think we would want to add it as DLC," he said.
It appears that this is the final word on co-op for Killzone 2. For those looking forward to the new downloadable maps, Sony has confirmed the release date for April 30. The price point for the pack in currently unknown.

Boooo... Would have added some fun playing with a friend.

To be honest, I never saw this game having co-op, unlike many other people. I think the multiplayer is addicting enough.

Even with out co-op the game still is a 10.

i know this... but who cares? the mult is DELICIOUS. :)

well that kinda sucks, i really think this game could shine if co-op was added. single player is great but if multiplayer is so important, doesnt co-op fall under that category?

i dont really want co-op all that much id much rather prefer to be able to play online or even offline with my brother or friends, some of my friends havnt got this game cus they couldnt play me when they came over to my house

No coop, no buy from me.

killzone 2 sucks anyways- what a letdown but i never expected anything to begin with... at least it looks pretty
- 5:32pm EDT - April 14th, 2009
Is it just me??! It seems like they are saying YES to downloadable co-op for the future.

what if Resident Evil 5 was pure single player, and multiplayer(slaver/survivor) WHAT THEN
in this game, the player is always with other soldiers against the helghast, it would have been cool

Given your judgement how many games do you own?
- 6:41pm EDT - April 14th, 2009
that stinks...i was looking forward to playing this with friends via co-op. eh well, back to single player and online...
- 6:44pm EDT - April 14th, 2009
in my opinion co-op would ruin killzone 2 experience,so it`s better without it,all those who say that killzone 2 is not good are completely insane
- 7:32pm EDT - April 14th, 2009
Game was good but... was A MASSIVE LET DOWN! coop cant save it or help it live up to the rediculous hype.... "at least its pretty"
- 7:36pm EDT - April 14th, 2009
Wow. That really sucks. Disappointing news.

What this game really needs is more guns and levels to rank up to. It would also be great if there was an option to turn off the orange glowing eyes and blue lights to add the need of actual skill to play this game. But ya it looks nice...
- 9:10pm EDT - April 14th, 2009
yes the mutilplayer would be addicting but co op would be very nice
- 9:39pm EDT - April 14th, 2009
This is actually the only reason a lot of my freinds are not picking up this game, I already have it but co-op multiplayer should definatly be integrated.
