Over the last few years it’s become increasingly obvious that Sony’s first-party studio Guerrilla Games is a master at utilising the full potential of the PS3’s graphical power. PS Vita owners should therefore be excited to see what the developer can conjure up on the portable platform with its newly announced game Killzone: Mercenary, which is built on the same engine as Killzone 3.

This Vita exclusive was revealed during Sony’s pre-gamescom press conference alongside the following live-action trailer featuring a tantalising glimpse of some impressive gameplay footage.

Take a look below:

Here’s more on the game courtesy of the PlayStation Blog:

“With Killzone: Mercenary, we want to offer PlayStation Vita owners a fresh perspective on the brutal conflict between ISA and Helghast ‒ literally. For the first time in a Killzone campaign, you’ll be fighting alongside Helghast forces as well as ISA specialists, carrying out missions that the regular soldiers just won’t — or can’t.

“As a mercenary, you’re free to decide which tactics and loadouts you’ll use to fulfill your contract; your employers will reward you with state-of-the-art weaponry and cold, hard cash as long as you get the job done. But what is the price of that freedom ‒ and will you discover it before it’s too late?”

Killzone: Mercenary is currently slated for a 2013 release.
