In debuting Killzone 3, Sony and developer Guerrilla Games sought to highlight the inclusion of 3D support in the shooter sequel. But while the implementation of the tech is as competent as any other recent example, it became a distraction from the bigger picture of all the improvements and additions already at work in this early build.

Guerrilla managing director Herman Hulst gave the usual introduction for a sequel, talking about how the team felt they could do a lot better when they wrapped up Killzone 2 and that everything about this game would be bigger and better. What they showed, and I subsequently got to play, went a long way toward backing that claim up. Read more »

CVG is reporting that Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Jak developer Naughty Dog is assisting Guerrilla Games with the recently confirmed PS3 first-person shooter Killzone 3.

According to the report, Naughty Dog "co-created" the Killzone 3 engine with Guerrilla Games, though I cannot imagine the engine was started from scratch. Released screenshots for Killzone 3 show snow environments, which were particularly well done in Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2. Read more »

Up to eight players come together in Fragile Alliance mode to pull off a heist within four minutes, though there's a twist certain to try many a friendship--thieves can turn on each other to steal more of the loot for themselves. Betrayed or killed or players will respawn as a cop to help foil the robbers. Read more »

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days Trailer Employs Shaky Cam

IO Interactive has released a grainy new trailer for Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, seemingly seeking to emulate shooter sequel's cited inspirations of "documentary filmmakers and the user-generated era" for a minidoc about action, anticipation and urination.
