A heads up for those that were interested in purchasing Killzone 3 for the multiplayer:

Next Tuesday, February 28, Sony will be giving away the multiplayer side of Killzone 3 away for free via its PlayStation Network. Any PlayStation 3 owner with an internet connection and a PSN account will be able to sample Killzone 3 multiplayer across all of its maps, free-to-play style.

The download will feature a level cap, and players will have the option of paying $14.99 to unlock the full skill tree once they reach that cap. The single player campaign will not be included and is not planned to be sold separately.

Sounds similar to what MAG did. I wish more multiplayer games did this. Really keeps the multiplayer community alive.

that, plus stop charging for DLC maps.
my biggest wish is the cross-platform multiplayer. online communities die out too fast unless they're halo or CoD. i don't expect this from xblive titles, but at least wiiU+ps3/4+PC games should be cross-online-play to keep online communities healthy as long as possible.

Very interesting experiment. It's cross-compatible with the disc version of the multiplayer I guess? I mean it would almost have to be given their stated goal, but the article doesn't specifically say.

Loved the KZ3 MP beta when it was live, so I will definitely be dl'ing this. Hell, $15 for the the uncapped MP isn't a bad deal at all...

The real question, however, is the online community still alive?

Thanks OP.

Interesting, I was planning of getting Killzone 3 for the single player campaign when it is cheaper. Meant to get KZ3 during the holiday season, just never got around to picking it up. Still have Killzone 2 in my backlog as well.

Even if the community is dead now (which I doubt it is), I bet after this goes free, it'll pick up.

Anyone have any idea regarding Trophies?

This seems so obvious it's annoying that publishers aren't getting it. If you make the freemium MP b/c with the regular version, you pad out the MP, extend the impact of your game's name/brand, invite opportunities to convert the free players to paid ones, and give extra value (in the form of more people to murder) to the players who did buy in with full feature set.

It's taken this long for them to realize that not every brand can be Call of Duty and to succeed the lesser brands with MP are going to have to innovate.

What makes you think they realize this? Better yet, what makes you think they are comparing their game to COD?

Yes, please come join me in some KZ3 multi...such a sick game, but at this point in it's life the online community is definitely declining a bit, so this could be a great little shot in the arm!

Great deal for those who haven't tried it yet! the online comunity is still very active 16 vs 16 warzone and operations most of the time and 8 vs 8 guerrilla warfare (i play at night)... best MP of 2011 along with BF3, they'r very similar but KZ is faster.

Was the issue ever fixed with the maps when you would be stuck in a loop on the same map?

I can speak on behalf of Killzone 3 MP.. no it is not dead.. A lot of people still play. And I can't wait for all of the newbies to pop on so I can crush them haha I'm top ranked biooooooooootch I love the game and same goes for Killzone 2. The series is levels above COD that shit is a flash in the pan.. they bring out so many of them in a year .. and they're all the same shit.. just a new name.

As for the multiplayer should be free.. um no! If I buy a game including campaign and multiplayer. I don't feel some jackass should get what I paid for .. for free.. sorry If you can't afford to buy the games maybe you should get a career or real job

Great opportunity for those that never bought killzone 3.

Multiplayer is excellent (I'm not even a big fan of fps games) and now with this the community will really expand again.

My only question is with this download you get all of the dlc maps to play; but those of us that bought the game already and don't have the dlc don't get it? We should get the dlc for free so we can play these new people.

This right here is why I don't play mp outside of GTA's free mode anymore. There's far too many 'serious' players who are a lil too good for my liking.:booty: What's funnier still is how they will bitch at you over their mics and then vote to kick you if you play 'unconventionally'.

I had people whining about how I was using a car(or heli) in GTA(Grand Theft AUTO) as an assist to get kills when I still played TDM/DM on that game. I guess they expected me to walk/run across the entire map once I got killed to get back to where most of the players were at?

As for whether this MP should be free or not, I really wish publishers would release seperate single and mp modes for games and charge LESS if seperating them. But free is good, level cap and having to pay $15 to unlock everything else is NOT.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Sarcasm-Just one of the many services I offer.

MAG trial is free for download for quite a while. They even made one of the expansion pack free just sometime in the fourth quarter of last year too.

Might play Killzone 3 Multiplayer when possible, made some cool killing during beta phase, but that was a while ago.
