Killzone Liberates PSP

Killzone, the multi-million selling franchise from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe and Guerrilla (now a wholly owned subsidiary of SCEE), is to make its debut on the PlayStation Portable with Killzone Liberation. Due for release in Q4 2006, this all new action packed instalment in the Killzone series has been developed specially for PSP and will feature a new intelligent third-person camera system – ideally suited for handheld gaming.

Hermen Hulst, Guerrilla Managing Director, commented “We were keen to ensure Killzone Liberation was totally unique and offered PSP owners a different Killzone experience. So, Killzone Liberation has been developed from scratch – creating what we think is an intense portable gaming experience. Although Killzone Liberation is totally new it stays true to what made the first Killzone such a great success – the characters, weapons, style and a continuation of the same great plot.”

The story follows the conclusion of events in the first Killzone, with the battle against the Helghast still raging on. In Southern Vekta, the rules of war have been cast aside with the Helghast General, Metrac, employing brutal measures in order to seize the initiative. Returning as Templar, your mission is to undertake a covert operation to save hostages captured by Metrac …whilst ISA troops continue the fight for liberty…

Killzone Liberation is due out later this year on PSP
