If you’re one of those who were skeptical to get a Vita because it lacked killer titles, then we’ve got some good news for you.
This year at Gamescom 2012, home turf of one of the subsidiaries of Sony, Guerrilla Games, Killzone: Mercenary, an FPS title exclusive to Vita, and a spin-off to the original Killzone series, was announced.
Killzone: Mercenary, like most spin-offs, will be quite different from the core Killzone series. This time you’ll be put in the shoes of a mercenary who works with both Helghast and ISA. This is big news as this is the first time in Killzone’s history that you will get to work with the Helghast. DEATH TO THE ISA!
And what more is that this handheld spin-off is being made by Guerrilla Games themselves and not out-sourcing the title to some other development studio to make a sub-par Killzone game. Moreover, Mercenary is being developed using the Killzone 3 engine, which no wonder makes the game look fabulous for a handheld.
Check out the amazing announcement trailer below, featuring half live-action and half-screenswiping gameplay action.
Details at the moment are pretty scarce, but Sony promised to reveal more soon.
Killzone: Mercenary is scheduled to be released at some point next year.
