‘Steel Rain’ DLC Announced For Killzone 3

By Ryan Martin, Writer

Despite Killzone 3 only being released today, Guerrilla Games has already announced a new map pack on the official website. Unlike the Retro pack, the new DLC will include “two brand-new multiplayer maps inspired by locations from the single player campaign.” The two new maps are called Junkyard and Stahl Arms, both of which are described below.

Game Type: Guerrilla Warfare (16 players)
The junkyards of Helghan are a wasteland to some, but a valuable resource to others. In the main junk processing facility of Helghan, ISA and Helghast Forces are clashing in an attempt to salvage vehicles and supplies for their war effort. Jetpacks are the key to taking the high ground, but the huge Exoskeletons can quickly turn the tide of the battle on the ground.

Game Type: Warzone (24 Players)
As the Helghast write a new and appalling chapter on humanoid experimentation, beleaguered ISA Forces mount a desperate attack on the notorious Stahl Arms research facility, where they hope to free ISA soldiers who have been taken captive. Stahl’s Helghast forces will stop at nothing to ensure that the ISA attack fails, even if it means exterminating the very prisoners they need for their weapons research.

A trailer for the map Junkyard was also released. It looks pretty fun.
