These days, developers just love to talk about downloadable content as early as humanly possible. Well, we don't mind.
Killzone 3 won't be out until February 22, but Guerrilla Games has announced the Retro Map Pack, which will include two multiplayer maps we first saw in Killzone 2 . Both Salamun Market and Blood Gracht will let you play KZ2 maps with the upgraded KZ3 goodness, and these will also be available via the PSN. We don't have a release date or a price just yet, but we imagine they'll arrive soon after the game launches. One of the maps will boast a few changes, though: Salamun Market has been "rebalanced for maximum carnage" and will be playable in Warzone mode, while Blood Gracht, the "fan-favorite" from KZ2, is basically the same. You'll be able to play the latter in KZ3's Guerrilla Warfare mode. If you want to test out the multiplayer ahead of time, feel free; the public demo is up now, and you're more than welcome to join in on the fun. Plus, the single-player demo will arrive on February 15.
Wow, all this playing the game before it actually releases stuff is a little overwhelming. I still remember when if you saw a screenshot ahead of time, you thought you hit behind-the-scenes gold.
