With the recent reveal of an announcement this Thursday regarding Killzone 2, many gamers have started to speculate what it could be about. The hottest rumor on the Web is around the possibility of a co-op patch coming to the game.
The Playstation 3 exclusive title, Killzone 2 has been getting its fair share of traction in the media circuit. Some have even dubbed it to be the best FPS of 2009. One thing is for sure, Killzone 2 is definitely one of the best FPS out there. I’ve been spending an incredible amount of time playing the addictive Warzone mode, where objectives can switch up on the fly.
According to Gametrailers Spike TV promo video, the show will be announcing something big for Killzone 2 this Thursday. Many have already speculated that the announcement could be regarding a map pack or a co-op mode addition.
Historically, when Geoff Keighley says, “first look at what’s next for…” it has proven to be something like a DLC map-pack. He said the exact same line leading up to the DLC map-pack announcement for Gears of War 2.
There is also a glimmer of hope that the announcement could be a co-op addition to the game. The reason why this is feasible is clearly apparent to anyone who has played the game. In about 95 percent of the game you have a partner there with you during the campaign. Video game journalists have questioned even before the launch of the game why Guerilla Games would pair you up with an NPC if the studio had no plans to incorporate a co-op mode.
It could be very well that this feature needed some additional work and the studio did not want to delay the game over this mode. If this is the case, many gamers will be pleasantly surprised with the new addition to the game. Make sure to stay tuned for more information regarding Killzone 2.
