Killzone: Mercenary set to drop a week ahead of it’s original date.
The PlayStation Vita installment to the Killzone shooter series being published by Guerilla Campaign has had it’s release date bumped up a week. Originally scheduled for a September 17th launch in North America, Killzone:Mercenary will now release on September 10th 2013.
Sony also released information on the pre-order incentives for Killzone: Mercenary. Here is the information as provided from the blog. Players who pre-order will receive “Blackjack’s Briefcase,” a reward for their early support that affords them an early edge in both the game’s competitive online multiplayer and extensive Campaign mode. It includes:
Double XP Boost
- Get out ahead of the pack! Start the 48-hour clock with this special access code and all contracts, bonuses and payoffs earn you twice the normal XP for two straight days!
In-Game Cash Bonus
- Start the game and go straight to the armory! With this bonus payout, you’ll have enough Vektan Cash to pick up a new weapon before you even step foot on the battlefield.
In addition to the above, people who pre-order from GameStop will receive an exclusive gun for use in both Campaign and Multiplayer action: the M224-A1 Light Machine Gun.
- A powerhouse weapon of the ISA, the M224-A1 carries more than enough ammo to get the job done at the cost of accuracy. Fortunately for a Mercenary, subtlety is not always a mission requirement.
So what do you guys think? Does a PlayStation Vita Killzone intrigue you enough to pick up the pre-order or is this a wait and see? The game trailer looks interesting.
