If you're into online multiplayer and you've taken a shine to the recently released Killzone 3 , you probably wanna know: where are my custom games?

They don't exist yet but don't worry, they're coming. Guerrilla Games confirms that this oft-requested feature will soon return , although it won't be exactly the same as it was in KZ2. Two separate upcoming updates will enable custom games; the first will enable "base functionality" like custom game modes and settings, while the second update will offer "more control over game modes and settings" and the option to select available careers. More features will also arrive in due time but for now, it's enough to know that custom games will soon be back. As always, any time you can give the online player more freedom and customization options, the happier they tend to be. But don't forget that Killzone 3 also has quite the satisfying single-player campaign, which is absolutely intense and fulfilling. Once you're done, you can then head online and indulge.

We'll let you know when these important updates arrive. Until then, feel free to log on and practice.

I've only played the first 30 minutes of KZ3 but it just feels so awesome to be back in that universe.

That depends on their intentions. Maybe they didn't plan on the custom matches but during this last beta/demo phase seen a growing want for it… I don't know just guessing.

Only thing I'm curious as to why it's not in the game is onlie campaign co-op. Split screen is ok but I can't use move during it, and I really hate my buddy cramping my screen! 😉 maybe later we'll see that, not really a big issue though!

I think what it came down to is priority. Custom games are fun and all but I would rather have solid and balanced game play mechanics that be able to customize my multiplayer matches.

I personally am glad they focused on the these things first, and the fact that its getting patched in is great. Guerrilla games is pretty good with keeping things patched from what I remember. I can picture Activision releasing the same news only with a 5 dollar price tag attached to it.

The only other online shooter on PS3 that didn't launch with custom matches was MoH – while it isn't a big deal for lone wolves, or those who play online with a friend or two, for community sites and clans this is a huge missing feature. It would also go along way to dealing with the matchmaking – which isn't bad for matchmaking, but you still spend far too much time looking for a balanced game with little lag, relative to actually playing and having fun.

KZ3 has great gameplay, really good fun, and the squad system is the best I've seen in a matchmaking game to date (granted, CoD and BC2 were hardly great at it, so best only has to mean it works) – but the lack of custom games has left a lot of us wondering what GG were smoking when they put KZ3 together. Particularly as they already had the best custom game code this gen from KZ2!

Well, I got the game last night & I've already D/L'ed 2 updates since, one last night & one tonight.

So far, I just been playing the SP mode a bit before I get ready to swap my phat 60 into a new size 640 next week, but I'm already past the point where we've killed the freaking huge mauler.

And IMO, as far as KZ3 goes….

haha, I love the infiltrator class. I started using it, 'cause I couldn't aim with any of the guns at all in the beta. I'm gonna branch out more now, though, since I've finished the SP and have a better handle on the game's mechanics.

I'm loving this game.

Really cheap class, but it doesn't matter they die like the rest. I have killed my share of Infs. They have killed me more no doubt. I haven't even touched the SP yet and I feel I have already gotten my monies worth! Warfare is so addicting! Just got prox mines last night and my engineer is also fully maxed so I can really setup some nice traps. I will be dug in like an Alabama tick! 🙂

Underdog15

lol, I shoot everyone including friends now because of that class. lol

Admittedly, I die by them much less (their name turns red when you scan your crosshair across them) than I used to, but I also have much less ammo from shooting teammates as a precaution. lol

Ah… the number of times I've said to my friends, "oh, you're real."

Anyways, I feel infiltrators are at a disadvantage for poor range and the fact that it's tough to string killstreaks. I almost always guarantee a kill or two as an infiltrator, sure, but as opposed to being tactician, I'll never get a big killstreak going.

is anyone else playing using move? i have the sharp shooter and using move it keeps going out of calibration. driving me nuts i had to stop using it.

I'm using the sharpshooter for this one and I'm loving it. The only thing I have a problem with is that I find that I can't sit down to play while using the Move, so I stand in front of my TV, "rifle ready" the whole time. Starts to hurt after a while..lol.

As for the Calibration, I haven't had any problems yet, although I did have to dial down my sensitivity a bit. The reticle was a little to twitchy at first so that if I panned left or right, my guy would sit and spin because I moved to fast…once I turned it WAY down, it calmed down after that.

Other than that, I'm loving playing with the Move, I don't think I'll ever be good enough to use it for online, but it's a fun way to go through the SP.

I use the move but have not had the joy of using the sharp shooter….yet. Did it seem like your recticle was slightly going off the longer you played?

Side note: I wonder if Mr. Dutka has tried the Move yet…I dont think I saw anything about it in his review (Correct me if Im wrong)

I've only used to Move regarding KZ3 for the open public beta in the botzone mode. It was interesting, but can definetly require some custon tweaking and getting used to.

No Snore, I don't think he had addressed it in the KZ3 review nor mentioned it in the video commentary. I think Ben has mentioned something about possibly talking about the Move implementation at a later date though.

Later.

Kiryu,
I agree, those infiltrators gave me the most frigging deaths in the beta.

They'd run up the steps towards me & just before I was about to pop off a few rounds at 'em, I'd see they were a friendly, but just after they'd pass me, they'd wheel around & melee me.

I did happen to cap one right away, when I saw he csme around the corner with my very own name over his head.
No, no, no that just wasn't happening, cause there's only one original BikerSaint!!!!!

leatherface,
Thanks for the tip, I'll have to try it when I finally go into MP mode.

Just finished the SP campaign on normal a few minutes ago & I'm trying to decide if I want to keep doing it again on each of the harder modes, or if this 1st time MP n00b should just go get his feet wet before everyone else gets their millions of XP & all their unlocks before I even get in there.

I did wind up with a little over 170,000 XP & a bunch of ribbons & unlocks in my very first time MP & beta with KZ3, but I saw that 3 guys in there already had some hellified 2 million plus XP stats, LOL

Litttle tip theres no green dot on the mini map so if you take a quick glance there youll notice if its an enemy or not that may be a little to annoying though im just used to i hardly ever get killed by the infiltrator class now

Q!

Qubex,
Well, If I remember right the beta was on for about 6 days, but I was in there off & on for all of them.

Since I'm a first time MP & a first time beta n00b, I'd go in around 3 in the morning when I thought it would be a little lighter(nope it was usually 8 vs 8)& at least a few of those days I stayed in it for around 8 or more hours each. I played all the different MP modes but started with the botzone mode just as a KZ refresher course.

Then I jumped into the "operation" mode(my favorite mode) & I got comfortable enough that I was getting 2time-XP soon afterwards & I was also able to to wind up the quickest guy to set both charges for 500 points plus the extra rewards points for getting both. Then I maxed out all the unlocks in the "engineer class" & the turret bots I placed also made a nice number of XP kills for me too. I also repaired everything I could find for extra points, and I usually had the most repairs, so I got a lot extra XP rewards for that too. Hell, what was most surprising to me, was that I even made the most headshots & wound up at as #1 on the individual in-session leader-board quite few times, so a lot more XP points for all those too(but I think I only made the in-session leader-board just because there were more new n00bs in there just like me), LOL

I have to pick the "Warzone" mode where the game randomly chose what the mission was, as my 2nd favorite.
And in one of my earliest "warfare" games, the game randomly selected the timed "assassination" mode & then it frigging selected "ME" as the ISA's target.

Yeah that's right, way to go Guerilla Games, pick on the 1st-time n00bie right off the bat, LOL.

And I almost made it through using a duck, weave, & kill strategy, and nobody could find me to even got a shot off on me……
….well, that was until I finally got assassinated by someone that snuck into the hallway & did a 1-shot/1-kill on me from afar as I was doing a refill at my last ammo box….and with only 22 seconds left on the count-down timer. GRRRRRRRRR!!!!

And after getting the game, I just finished the "real" SP mode on normal mode last night, maybe around 15-18 hours, but that's not a correct time, just because I stopped whenever I could just to hang around & "gawk-out" at all the amazing colors, details to the environment & surroundings. And watching the seas churning below while on the iceburgs, & then to check out the lush colorful jungle up close & personal like, just continued to keep me memorized. I tell ya, it's like a brand new wonder drug…..my brain on Killzone!

Btw your the first I've heard complain of this. I havnt had troubles yet. Maybe you could try picking a different region in that case? Idk but you should just give up completely on games altogether. Doesn't seem like you enjoy it very much.

Blankguy never has anything positive to say about sony exclusives.
Blankguy only looks forward to MULTIPLAT games,therefore i deduct that blankguy owns a 360 &/or a pc.
I suppose i can understand his bitterness as us PS3 users get 99% of all the console releases that are worth playing & blankguy gets 25% maybe!

On top of all the wonderful and probably true rebuttals to your alleged story, I'm sure no one really cares that your selling KZ3 back to EB. Its 100% your loss, and everyone else gains, you lose out on one of the best console shooter experiences since KZ2, and we don't have to play online with your lying whining face mouth.

CrusaderForever

I think Veitsknight is correct. You sound like you are trying to play the MP beta which is not available anymore. The only problem I have had in KZ3 is when trying to connect to Warfare and having it say World is full please try again later. I literally try again right away and I am back in. That's it, otherwise it has been a fantastic experience with no lagging issues. I find this to way better than CoD Black Ops and I am a big fan of the CoD series. Very happy with my purchase and looking forward maxing out my levels. I am actually going to try each class as well.

Yup, I knew it…you're were still f*cking at it, scamming & thieving away just the same as when you used to constantly brag here here about ripping off the developers before the 7 days were up, just to get all of your money back.

It's a shame the register biscuits there at all your gaming stores aren't smart enough to figure out by now that you've been scamming & stealing from them all these years.

Good thing for you that I don't work at any of them, cause I would have banned your sorry ass from ever entering the store again, after only your 2nd try & called you out as a worthless common petty thief, & then hoped you didn't like it.

Again w/ patches that 'award' features…not sure why this wasn't in the final product…it was important for KZ2. I thought it just wasnt availabe in the beta…5hrs into the actual MP and I realized it didn't exist. I got over it, but why get rid of it and force matchmaking now. The game is good though, but the pacing and forced story aren't clicking for me right now. Probably just jitters as I don't like most games the first time I play them…KZ2 included. Hope my opinion changes tomorrow. Also KZ2 had better maps…anyone else agree? The updated Saluman Market didn't click for me. I love the Highway map though.
