Killzone 3 finally revealed, includes JETPACKS

Sony's worst-kept secret, the upcoming release of Killzone 3, has apparently been blown wide open in the latest issue of GamePro. 3D effects, deeper melee combat and JETPACKS are all said to be part of the shenanigans this time around.

The jetpacks are a huge part of Killzone 3, according to the reports. They can be used as weapons by both the player and the Helghast, with the enemies apparently blowing up like "Roman candles" if shot. There will also be environmental obstacles that require use of the pack. There's also meant to be a new weapon called The Wasp, which fires multiple missiles in one shot. 

As far as the story and setting goes, arctic levels have been revealed, and the Helghast are expected to shot some vestiges of humanity to their character. Hopefully they will get a little more depth to their character, as they always had potential to be fascinating villains. A little bit of art has been revealed, showing the Helghast dressed for winter combat. Still with the impractical orange eyes, of course. 

Which leaves us with the matter of 3D. Allegedly, 3D effects are "crazy" and make up a big part of the game, although there is still major doubt that videogames featuring current-gen graphics can support the technology. Guess we'll have to see what they're done here. 

Well, color me excited. Killzone 2 is one of my favorite shooters, and thus I shall be all over this. We can certainly expect more at E3.
