Earlier this year there was talk that the original Killzone would be released on PSN as a PlayStation 2 Classic. These plans were seemingly cancelled and now we know why – Guerrilla Games has given the game an HD makeover (720p) and full Trophy support and will bundle it with Killzone 2 and 3 to form the ‘Killzone Trilogy’, out next month on PS3.
The bundle will be released on October 23rd in the US and October 24th in European territories. It will sell for a recommended retail price of $39.99 / €49.99 / £40.84.
The Killzone Trilogy will also feature all the map packs released for Killzone 2 and 3 thus far. These include:
- Steel & Titanium Map Pack (Killzone 2)
- Flash & Thunder Map Pack (Killzone 2)
- Napalm & Cordite Map Pack (Killzone 2)
- Steel Rain Map Pack (Killzone 3)
- Retro Map Pack (Killzone 3)
- From The Ashes Map Pack (Killzone 3)
It’s not yet known if Killzone and Killzone 2 will feature PlayStation Move or 3D support like the third game in the series does.
Here’s the box art for the Killzone Trilogy (US and UK respectively) along with some screenshots for ‘Killzone HD’:
