Celebrate 5 Years Of Killzone With Double XP

Illustration for article titled Celebrate 5 Years Of Killzone With Double XP

World of Warcraft isn't the only game turning five this week, with developer Guerrilla celebrating five years of Killzone all week long at Killzone.com, culminating in a weekend's worth of double XP goodness.


The original Killzone was release on the PlayStation 2 on November 26th, 2004. It wasn't all that great, but it did lay the foundation for Killzone 2 on the PlayStation 3, which was pretty great, so we'll let Guerrilla have its little celebration. It works out well for us anyway, what with a double XP weekend in Killzone 2 running the 27th through the 30th, and reduced prices on Killzone 2 DLC until December 10th. There's even a Killzone 2 retro tournament this weekend, using only the Beach Head and Southern Hills map from the second map pack.

Those of you who earnestly want to celebrate the original game can head over to Killzone.com, where this week there'll be a complete play through of the original game later this week, followed by a detailed comparison of the two titles next week.


Happy birthday, Killzone! We will celebrate this Thursday by eating until we pass out.

Both Killzones sucked for me. Rico ruins the campaign and the weightiness of the controls have no place in game that is sci-fi and not trying to be realistic, except in the controls. Traded that shit back in and got me Uncharted 2. Now thats a game.

Has anyone ever wondered why they named it Killzone? Seems like Sony has some retards naming their games. Massive Action Game. Killzone. Shit every FPS should be named Killfest, Killers, Killtacular, KillMasters, KillArea, Killspace, Killbeach, KillWar, Gears of Kills, Unchartedkills, Ratchet and Kills, Megumi Tensei Kills, KillRecon, KillSix: Vegas.
