On February 19th, Killzone Mercenary is bolstering its map total to eight by adding two multiplayer maps from Killzone 2; Tharsis Depot and Blood Gracht. Both of these maps are standouts from Killzone 2 and have been slightly re imagined to fit the â€œmercenaryâ€ feel on the Playstation Vita.
Details on both of the maps as explained by Guerrilla Cambridge:
After incurring damage during the ISA invasion of Helghan, this subterranean mining platform has been converted to process nuclear Petrusite. Now that itâ€™s back in full-scale production, the ISA will again battle Helghast and mercenary forces between the structures of Tharsis Depot. This time they intend to finish the job they started. Under the cavernâ€™s artificial light this is a great map to play Guerrilla Warfare or Warzone on. A Mercenary version of the Killzone 2 classic.
Months after the nuclear blast that ruined most of the city, Pyrrhus is slowly recovering. But now with ISA, Helghast and mercenary troops clashing in the suburb’s buildings and winding alleyways, the canals once again run red with blood. This fan-favourite multiplayer map from Killzone 2 is ideal for all game modes.
Will the addition of two maps bring you back into the warzone?
You will be able to download the update from PSN on Wednesday February 19th at 7 AM EST. The update will come in at 167 MB if you have downloaded the previous patch that freed up space from previous patches (patch 3), or 526 MB if you havenâ€™t.
