Mark you calendars! On January 27th, it looks like the Helghast will be invading the Central Plaza in PlayStation Home. Once you get inside, you’ll be able to participate in a series of games across three different levels to be able to gain accessories for your PlayStation Home avatar and extend your experience with Killzone 3 using PlayStation Home‘s Total Game Integration. Completing all three levels will reward you with Unlock Points that you can redeem new weapons and abilities in multiplayer for Killzone 3.
Also, for the first time in PlayStation Home, you’ll be able to pre-order Killzone 3 and receive the exclusive Helghast jet pack costume for your PlayStation Home avatar as a gift with purchase.
“PlayStation Home has seen tremendous growth in the last year and now features hundreds of games, with more coming all the time,” said Jack Buser, director of PlayStation Home, SCEA. “The introduction of Total Game Integration is another huge step forward, allowing Home to directly affect gameplay in your favorite PlayStation 3 titles.”
The Killzone 3 pre-order in PlayStation Home are being hosted by Amazon.com and are available until February 24th. Additionally, aside from the custom jet pack for your avatar, people who pre-order through PlayStation Home will also receive the Amazon.com gift with purchase bundle. The bundle features the Unlock and Load Pack, which includes an exclusive PSN code for access to three Unlock Points to use towards a weapon or ability of choice, as well as the Killzone 3 Retro Map Pack.
