Killzone: Mercenary to get 2 new MP Maps
A Guerrilla Games developer posted in the Killzone forums that 2 new multiplayer maps will be available for Killzone: Mercenary on the PSVita tomorrow. The two maps are part of a mandatory update for the Vita title, and should be available by 12PM GMT on Wednesday, the 19th. The two maps are “Tharsis Depot” and “Blood Gracht.” The following level breakdowns were taken from the Killzone forum post:
After incurring damage during the ISA invasion of Helghan, this subterranean mining platform has been converted to process nuclear Petrusite. Now that it’s back in full-scale production, the ISA will again battle Helghast and mercenary forces between the structures of Tharsis Depot. This time they intend to finish the job they started. Under the cavern’s artificial light this is a great map to play Guerrilla Warfare or Warzone on. A Mercenary version of the Killzone 2 classic.
Months after the nuclear blast that ruined most of the city, Pyrrhus is slowly recovering. But now with ISA, Helghast and mercenary troops clashing in the suburb’s buildings and winding alleyways, the canals once again run red with blood. This fan-favourite multiplayer map from Killzone 2 is ideal for all game modes.
As stated above, this is a mandatory update for Killzone Mercenary if you’re planning on playing it online. The 2-map update checks in at 167MB, however if you haven’t downloaded any of the previous updates you’ll need around 530MB to bring your Vita up to speed.
In my opinion, this is a smart move for Guerrilla. The last major PSN Sale featured Mercenary at just $9.00 which was a deal and a half if you hadn’t already grabbed the game. It has some of the best multiplayer on the PSVita and is well worth the price, even more so with the addition of 2 new maps. Get your vita charged up, and prepare for battle.
