Arguably one of the most highly anticipated games on the Sony next-gen PlayStation 3 console is Killzone. Ever since it was shown in trailer form back at E3 people have been buzzing about the game. This is after the fact that it is known that the trailer was not actual gameplay nor was it running on PlayStation 3 hardware. Nonetheless the game is progressing nicely and reports are stating that in its form now it is already matching what that now infamous trailer at E3 showed us not too long ago.
New details have been revealed about the game as it has been uncovered that the upcoming PlayStation 3 version of Killzone will receive downloadable content after it is released on the next-gen console.
This news comes from an article in the newspaper de Volksrant as they have revealed that after the game is released we can eagerly look forward to new chapters which will be released and available for download. This means that Sony is likely going to release Killzone and then expand the game through micro-transactions over their Sony Store on the PlayStation Network.
The article goes on to state that the game’s development costs are likely to exceed EUR 16 m. This is more than it cost to make the most expensive Dutch film in history Black Book.
"Our budget tops [the film]," said Killzone director Arjan Brussee. "We’re working on the biggest multimedia project in Dutch history."
This is very early news to talk about what is going to happen after the game is released since it is still a good ways off but it is something for Killzone fans to look forward to and think about.
There are currently over 120 people working on the title and since the game has such high costs of development it is not surprising that Sony is going to try and make as much money off of it as they can so that the developer can cover the costs of developing this massive blockbuster exclusive for the Sony PlayStation 3.
