Considering you could get a used copy of this game for ~$17, I would grab it used from GoHastings. There might be a current promo or something going on to make it cheaper. By doing that you'd have the full MP, and full game. Killzone 3

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.

Wow, someone complaining about high quality free multiplayer. $15 to unlock all features is pretty damn cheap. It's not like it's $15 a month like online MMOs such as Warcraft and Starwars. I guess all game companies should do pro bono work and not get paid for their efforts. Now charging for dlc maps and skins is lame. Those should be considered free updates to people who already paid for the game.

Do you think they will ever come out with another disc version with all the maps on it? I'll be in for this, but I hate DLC...I like all my stuff as hard copy.

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 feel the same way you do. A "casual" multiplayer player like myself has no fighting chance against those "serious" players who spend 8 or more hours a day playing online. It's why MW3, Battlefield 3, MAG, Killzone 3, and many other FPS games I own sit on the shelf collecting dust. Just not my thing, and it has nothing to do with my "sucking". It has everything to do with people not having a life outside of a video game.

As an owner of KZ3, this annoys me. Yes it will breathe life into the community, but it makes the game I own worth less.

These are the games that I am currently playing:

$15 for one of the best shooters this gen is a pretty good deal, plus the level cap allows you to sample this game so if you like it, why not support the people who made it?

You could just practice? I don't understand people like you. You barely play the game yet expect to be just as good as everyone else?

Anyways, as someone who owns KZ3, the level cap is not that big of a deal as say in MAG. All you unlock in KZ3 are some abilities and a couple weapons per class but they're not so over-powered as to give you no chance.

Hopefully some of these people buy the DLC maps. I still have a DLC trophy that I've been meanin to go back and try to get.

I guess all game companies should do pro bono work and not get paid for their efforts. Now charging for dlc maps and skins is lame. Those should be considered free updates to people who already paid for the game.

Actually I don't mind paid DLC as long as it adds HOURS of gameplay to the single player portion of a game, as that's the portion I play the heck out of in most games. I'm not saying that companies should give all of their stuff away free, but there's a reason that mp communities dry up.

Only the most diehard players will keep playing and there will be newbies like me who will play for a day or two and get annoyed at being constantly beaten to a pulp. Some of us just play these games to Fuck around, while others play for their 'stats' and for whatever bragging rights they think it gets them.

$15 for one of the best shooters this gen is a pretty good deal, plus the level cap allows you to sample this game so if you like it, why not support the people who made it?

I don't usually play shooters. I tend to gravitate more towards sandbox games(GTA/Saint's Row/Just Cause 2), RPG's(Skyrim, Kingdoms Of Amalur) or platforming games/classic game collections(Rayman Origins, Sonic's Genesis Collection) as opposed to shooters unless I'm playing with friends, since then we can watch each others backs in mp.

But if I'm playing a shooter with a buncha random people, chances are that 9 times outta 10 I'm gonna be outmatched and outgunned by the vets and after a couple rounds of that sorta nonsense I'm going to leave and never touch that game's mp again probably.

You could just practice? I don't understand people like you. You barely play the game yet expect to be just as good as everyone else?

The only game I've ever practiced in is GTA, since I like using the glitches and exploits to my advantage, so that when some fuckwad with a penchant for playing free mode like deathmatch comes into the game I can sit and wait under the map or inside a building, watch them waste half their ammo trying to hit me and then eradicate them with an RPG to the skull.

I'd probably do the same in shooting games, where I would play them unconventionally and end up having the vets whining/crying about how I'm 'not playing the game right', as if there's some hidden set of set in stone rules you HAVE to obey when playing a mp game.:roll:

I've had it happen in GTA before, where people actually whined about me using cars/bikes/choppers to give myself a tactical advantage that balanced out their mastery of the weapons.

The multiplayer was fun as hell but things got dull after a while once I maxed out the only class I cared about. There is really not much incentive once you max out a class and don't care for the rest. I wouldn't mind playing again for kicks...

Last time I played around November 2011 (before the game got traded) the community was still there but barely. During the weekdays it was hard to get more than 6 people in a match (3 vs 3). On the weekend it was better with bigger teams, but it wasn't crazy active like other games. Maybe MW3 had something to do with it (along with Battlefield 3).

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.

so that ruined it all for me :(

Best of all, Killzone 3 Multiplayer is free to try – you can play any of the maps and modes until you reach the rank of Sergeant I. If you want to keep playing, attain higher ranks, and earn any of Killzone 3 Multiplayer’s four exclusive new trophies, you can unlock the full version for only $15 (UK/EU price TBA). Doing so will net you a 24-hour double XP bonus, 3 free unlock points, the ability to set up clans and custom games, and access to the Botzone mode to help hone your combat skills. - www.killzone.com/kz3/en_US/blog/news/2012-02-24_kz3-multiplayer.html

Its not free to play with a level cap restriction. Once you hit the level cap, you can no longer play. But if you do decide to buy it for $15, it comes with all Killzone 3 DLC released so far.

Fuck that noise then. I rarely play first person shooters and unless I was constantly playing with friends then I'd likely quit playing very quickly. So definitely NOT worth $15 for me to keep playing after the level cap.

So let me get this straight....you will practice at a game to get good at "glitches and exploits" (also well known as being cheap) but you wont practice in order to get legitimately good at said game? :roll:

It's people like you who will slowly kill the MP scene of games over time.

Why do people have to use glitches and exploits in order to cheapen a game up and give them a unfair advantage just because they don't want to take the time to learn how to play the game as its meant to be played. There's no reason anyone should jump into a game and expect to roll around slaughtering people, it takes practice and patience.

On topic...Killzone 3's MP is pretty darn good and well worth 15 bucks. Yet as a previous poster stated, once you level up your favorite class (and it happens quickly) it gets boring fairly quickly. The knife kill sequences are some of the best i've seen in a MP game though. After a week or two of playing the game it starts to get stale pretty quick and I ended up going back to Battlefield and Call of Duty.

I think that releasing the MP of a long ago released, slowly dying game is a great idea for game designers though because it brings the game back into the spotlight for a little bit and kind of revives it for the diehard fans who wish there were more people playing their favorite game. Plus it gives the people on the fence about the game a chance to try it out.

I don't really use the glitches in GTA to 'cheat' perse, insomuch as just to get away from frickin' griefers who choose to make free mode into deathmatch but would likely pussy out and ragequit if they got trounced in TDM/DM.

I did just that a couple of nights, where I voted to change the mode to DM/TDM and some of those same shmucks who were trash talking me over their headsets in free mode got awful quiet when the shoe was on the other foot. They then proceeded to quit out before the game even ended.

I go into modes like free mode to explore, mess around with glitches(a few of my friends found some some floors in buildings you can't normally go into in the main game this way) and have what I consider fun.

Running from some moron in a chopper for 20 minutes who's shooting and killing me just for kicks ain't fun. Sure. I could make a private game, but most nights I join my friends who have created the game we're in and they(for some reason) choose to leave most slots open.:roll:

So before I bother with this sort of freebie. Will I be able to unlock the level cap/mulitiplayer if I buy Killzone 3?

Sorry I'm fairly new to the PS3 Killzone universe only played the original and Liberation on the PSP. I'd rather use that $15 towards buying a copy of Killzone 3.

Yes you can. The $15 download has an additional 3 dlc packs according to people here. That's the only difference.
