Two small spoilers have been released by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) about Killzone 2.
” This is a first-person shooter in which players are members of an elite military unit whose mission is to quell an intergalactic threat and disarm a stockpile of seized nuclear weapons,” the report reads.
Also, the rating hints towards how bloody and mature this game will be:
Platform: PlayStation 3
Content descriptors: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Strong Language
Rating summary: This is a first-person shooter in which players are members of an elite military unit whose mission is to quell an intergalactic threat and disarm a stockpile of seized nuclear weapons. Combat is frequent and fast-paced, as players use a variety of firearms (rifles, machine guns, and shotguns) and explosives (grenades and rocket launcher) to kill enemy soldiers. Red blood spray emits from enemy soldiers when shot, and weapons such as sniper rifles and shotguns can be used to decapitate them. Post-mortem damage can be inflicted on soldiers’ bodies, resulting in pools of blood on the ground. During one cutscene, a gravely wounded character retrieves a pistol and shoots himself in the head. The game contains strong profanity (e.g., “f*ck,” “sh*t,” “a*shole”) in the dialogue.
Sounds interesting, don’t know whether the character committing suicide is an important or side character, but this will make it less of a surprise when the time comes to play it, hah. This game sounds like it’s shaping up to be game of the year already. I wonder how epic the headshots in this game will be, heh.
