As promised, Guerrilla Cambridge has released a new patch for its PS Vita first-person shooter Killzone: Mercenary which adds two popular multiplayer maps from Killzone 2 to the game. The update weighs in at 167MB if you’ve downloaded the previous patch, or 526MB if you’re playing the game’s multiplayer mode for the first time. The new patch is mandatory meaning that you won’t be able to play online without first installing it.

Here’s the official description for each of these maps along with some screens showing how well these Killzone 2 maps have made the transition to PS Vita:

Tharsis Depot

“After incurring damage during the ISA invasion of Helghan, this subterranean mining platform has been converted to process nuclear Petrusite. Now that it’s back in full-scale production, the ISA will again battle Helghast and mercenary forces between the structures of Tharsis Depot. This time they intend to finish the job they started. Under the cavern’s artificial light this is a great map to play Guerrilla Warfare or Warzone on. A Mercenary version of the Killzone 2 classic.”

Blood Gracht

“Months after the nuclear blast that ruined most of the city, Pyrrhus is slowly recovering. But now with ISA, Helghast and mercenary troops clashing in the suburb’s buildings and winding alleyways, the canals once again run red with blood. This fan-favourite multiplayer map from Killzone 2 is ideal for all game modes.”

This patch is the third of four planned updates scheduled for release over the next few months. Head over here for the full outline of Killzone: Mercenary’s update schedule.
