Killzone 3 To Take Over Home

By Ryan Martin, Writer

Starting this week, January 27th to be precise, the Central Plaza of PlayStation Home will be turned into the last stronghold for the ISA in which you must help to protect from the Helghast onslaught.

Along with the drastic makeover, Home will also receive a new game called ‘Central Plaza Defender’ which will see your virtual self shoot at waves of Helghast forces in the new first person shooter for the social MMO. You will have to aim your weapon at enemy soldiers, vehicles, airstrips or assist ISA gunners by collecting and delivering ammo, first aid and repair kits. As a lovely little reward to completing these challenges, you will given Home items but when you complete all three challenges, you will receive 3 unlock points for the online segment of Killzone 3.

In addition to what has been mentioned, players will also be able to preorder Killzone 3 through the many kiosks in Central Plaza and you will be able to collect these extras:

• Limited edition Killzone 3 jetpack for your HOME avatar, not available anywhere else
• Unlock and Load Pack, instant access to three Unlock Points to use on the weapon or ability of your choice in Killzone 3 multiplayer
• Retro Map Pack, featuring two of the most popular maps from Killzone 2

If you haven’t touched Home since it launched and are looking forward to Killzone 3, this is definitely something to get you back into it, I know I’ll be going back.
