Killzone 3 leaks show split-screen co-op, giant robots

Sony has sprung a Killzone 3 media leak after sending preview code to the wrong people. The most important aspect of this info flood is the revelation that Guerrilla’s red-eyed shooter series is introducing split-screen co-op to the mix. 

As well as this slice of news, an enterprising young snitch has uploaded ten minutes of preview footage and revealed an off-screen battle with a gigantic mech that bears more than a passing resemblance to the Chaos Space Marine Defiler. It’s also f*cking huge. 

Aside from the fact that Rico (ugh) is looking like he’ll still be a major character, it would appear that Killzone 3‘s campaign mode is going to be pretty epic. I can’t wait to check it out, and I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed that Rico finally gets killed. It’s the dream of all true Killzone fans.
