Killzone 3 Goes Gold

Killzone 3 has been the subject of much discussion over the past couple of years. Soon, we’ll get a chance to actually play it, and see if it lives up to all the hype. That day just got a little closer, as Sony has announced that the exclusive shooter has gone gold.

In a post on the PlayStation blog this morning, Associate Producer Mike Graham of SCEA Santa Monica details come of the new additions to the third title in the series.

Picking up right where Killzone 2 left off, you return to the role of ISA Sgt. “Sev” Sevchenko. Beaten, bloody but not broken you and your fellow ISA veterans find yourself outnumbered and isolated following the events of Killzone 2. New enemies, new environments and new threats wait for you as the story for survival unfolds.

Add in 3D support including online, split-screen co-op campaign, and full PlayStation Move support including the new sharp shooter peripheral and it’s more to do than you can shake a stick at.

It also shows off the Helghast Edition of the game (pictured above), as well as laying out the retailer-specific pre-order unlocks, in case you haven’t decided where you want to get them from. Here’s the list:
