The first downloadable new content for Killzone 2 on PS3 is coming April 30. With the release date Sony has passed along details of the package’s content.
The Steel and Titanium map pack will include two all-new unique maps for use during online multiplayer gameplay. Sony describes the maps as follows.
“Wasteland Bullet, which pulls inspiration from the train level “Tharsis Refinery” in the single player campaign, takes the action right onto a high-speed bullet train that is used to transports goods and troops between Pyrrhus and the Wasteland. On the train, players must navigate through a narrow and treacherous tight layout, dodging oncoming obstacles, while facing off with the enemy on top of two high-speed moving trains. The action is frenzied and dangerous as players will be able to jump back and forth between the trains throughout the level, while maintaining focus and remaining aware because hitting a concrete pillar or other obstacles at the train’s high speeds could mean instant death!”
“In the second map, Vekta Cruiser, which is based on the “Cruiser” level from the single player campaign, players as the ISA troops find themselves in close quarters, boarding a vast ship. Their goal is to repel a force of assaulting Helghast troops while simultaneously protecting the cruiser from enemy fire. The action takes place entirely indoors in a frantic and claustrophobic environment where the battle against Helghast continues. Attackers are lurking around every so attention and focus is key.”
Steel and Titanium DLC pricing has not been revealed yet and likely won’t be until a few days before April 30.
