Award-Winning Franchise Extends
Exclusively to Plastation 3 With the Highly Anticipated Debut of Killzone 2

Intense Military Shooter
Leverages Processing Power of PS3 to Deliver Fans a Brutal and Realistic
First-Person Shooter Experience

Sony Computer Entertainment America
Inc.  announced today the North American launch of Killzone(R)2 exclusively
for the Plastation 3   computer entertainment system. Developed by
Guerrilla Games, the acclaimed development team that produced Killzone(R) for
PlayStation(R)2 and Killzone(R): Liberation for PSP(R) , Killzone 2 brings
players back to the hostile fight between the ISA and Helghast army. Delivering
a premier first-person shooter experience, Killzone 2 brings moments of tension
and anxiety through fierce enemy battles along with some of the most advanced
cinematic graphics available on the PS3 platform.

Recipient of six "Editor’s Choice
Awards" including IGN, GamePro, and GameSpy, Killzone 2 is a post-modern
futuristic military conflict inspired by 20th century warfare, submerging
players in a world of chilling armed sieges and full-scale war against the evil
Helghast army. Killzone 2 perfectly captures the intensity and mayhem of war as
players assume the role of Sev, a hard-hitting member of the special forces unit
known as the Legion, where they will find themselves on the dangerous Helghast
homeland planet of Helghan.

"Since the first game play
demonstration shown at E3 2007, Killzone 2 has remained one of the most
anticipated title launches for 2009," said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President,
Product Marketing, SCEA. "This immersive cinematic experience, coupled with
studio-grade sound and top-notch visual effects, sets a new bar for first-person
shooters and provides an unmatched gaming experience that can only be produced
on PS3."

With the battle of Vekta still fresh
in memory, the ISA troops must traverse the hostile planet of Helghan on a
mission to secure capital city, defeat the formidable Helghast troops, and
capture the menacing Helghast leader, Emperor Visari. Players will be
immediately thrown in to battle, experiencing a visceral combat experience with
intense gameplay moments that will provide hours of challenging extensive
single-player and multiplayer game play action.

The sheer amount of detail in
Killzone 2 is an achievement that only Blu-ray Disc technology can provide, as
the game would take up to three DVD discs to hold the same amount of content.
Killzone 2 also boasts technological advantages such as the use of EDGE tools, a
machine proprietorship developed by Guerrilla Games, which gives the game its
striking character animation, flawless visuals, life-like environments, and
seamless cut scenes. In the game, the Helghan world is stunningly lit with
specular lighting, particle effects, and deferred rendering technology that
truly brings to life the chilling post-modern, war-ridden world. Complete with
studio-scale effects, including 7.1 surround sound audio that rivals Hollywood’s
biggest blockbuster films, fully destructible environments, and cutting-edge
artificial intelligence, Killzone 2 delivers the ultimate next generation game
play experience.

Online and Multiplayer Features

In addition to the addicting
single-player action, Killzone 2 offers a robust online multiplayer mode that
brings the graphical quality of single-player with a wide variety of gameplay
options. "Warzone" will cycle through five different mission objectives and game
modes to keep players on their toes. Online battles allow up to 32 players to
engage in competitive combat, featuring a unique customizable badge system that
lets opponents combine abilities from six available player classes. Clan
creation will also take a new step by allowing player clans to wager Valor
points with the winner taking all and utilizing points as currency within the
online universe. Players can create tournaments and clans, keep tabs on stats
and overall rankings, and view replays of key battles through integration with
the official Killzone.com website.

The independent Entertainment
Software Rating Board (ESRB) rates Killzone 2 "M" for "Mature"  For more
