- Guerrilla Games Lead Online Game Designer Eric Boltjes
has announced that in celebration of Killzone for PS2 turning five a Double XP weekend is in order, as follows:
November 26 will be a very special day for all of us here at Guerrilla
. On that day, exactly five years ago, the very first Killzone title for PlayStation 2 hit the shelves in Europe.
Sure, the game had already been released in the US three weeks prior, but hey... Guerrilla is based in the Netherlands. We commemorate the 26th because that's the date that we were finally able to see the fruits of our labor in Dutch stores.
Of course, it would be a shame to leave this occasion unmarked - and I'm not talking about the champagne and strange Dutch snacks we'll undoubtedly be having at the studio. We also want to celebrate it with you, the fans. After all, the Killzone brand wouldn't be where it is today without your support. So here's what we have in store for you over the next few days:
Looking back at Killzone 1
Later this week on Killzone.com
, Seb "Motherh" Downie
and I are going to play through the first Killzone game for you. We'll be commenting on our favorite sections and wallowing in beer-induced nostalgia.
