Killzone 2 -- it's the game that dropped all our jaws with it's impressive unveiling at E3 '07. With unparalleled graphics, an innovative first-person cover system, and promise for an addictive online mode, what's not to like? The big question remains though - when will we finally get to play it?!
One already known fact is that gamers will get their paws on an online beta before Killzone 2's official release. Guerilla Games' lead tester, Seb Downie, confirmed that fact earlier this year on Killzone 2's official forums:
"Of course there is going to be a public beta. I have always said that any game that has an online mode needs to go through a public beta to ensure it works as intended," asserted Downie.
"We are hoping to do a beta but I don't think we'll have anything ready before this year is over... it is something we are working on for next year," he wrote.
This quashes earlier rumors which suggested that it would indeed be available in time for the holidays. However, he prompted us to "keep in touch [as] we'll have more soon."
Stay tuned to PSU.com as we'll have a full-fledged feature on Killzone 2 early next year. Prepare yourselves.
