Take no sides with Killzone for PS Vita.

Sony has tied a title to its Killzone game for PlayStation Vita: Killzone: Mercenary.

Mercenary makes “full use” of PlayStation Vita’s graphical andinput capabilities, according to Sony, and is built on the same engine as Killzone 3.

The game will offer PS Vita owners a “fresh perspective” on the conflict between ISA and Helghast, placing players in the shoots of mercenaries who don’t take sides – just money. You will be free to decide which tactics and loadouts you’ll utilize in fulfilling their contracts, and employers will reward you witht new weapons and cash.

The game is due for PS Vita next year. Watch the debut trailer below.

        Vita gets new game announcements….

        “Meh”

        • Hinano

          Just because Vita gets new game announcements doesn’t mean every single one of them is great.

          So yes, I’ll repeat my self: Ehh looked okay.

            Killzone is a great series. This looks to be a great entry in a great series.

            As I said before: Haters gonna hate.

              I just want it on ps3 D:

        I was hoping for something unique like Tearaway. It’s mostly just shooter fatigue.

        • KingOptimusOrigins111

          But Killzone has always had its own different feel then most shooters. Like the way the guns feel and the control schemes. As far as unique goes, I think a lot were expecting it to play like Killzone but with use of some PS Vita features.

          Don’t go out and play every shooter released? Problem solved.

    I’ve seriously grown tired of everyone making COD clones. However I honestly must admit Killzone 2 was & still is one of the best PS3 FPS games to date. the MP was innovative in the fact that missions changed minute to minute. 

    I love Killzone. 

  • InternatlGamer3

    I’m buying. 

  • Rock Raiyu

    This looks amazing, I’m not much of a Killzone fan (well, I was put off by the controls in KZ2) but I’m definitely keeping an eye on this.

  • LustEnvy

    Looks like the first legit FPS worth buying on the Vita, and I don’t even like Killzone.
