Poria Torkan (Producer, Guerilla Games) has confirmed via the PlayStation Blog that Killzone: Mercenary will be available on PlayStation Vita from September 17th.
Killzone: Mercenary takes place shortly after the original Killzone and puts players in the shoes of Arran Danner; a former UCA-soldier who has no qualms about taking on paid contracts from the ISA as well as the Helghast.
Comprised of nine single-player missions — each nearly an hour in length— Killzone: Mercenary delivers a full Killzone experience in a portable package. Completed missions unlock additional replay challenges, with a host of special objectives to accomplish. The game also boasts a full-fledged multiplayer mode with six maps tailored for eight players and three different game types, including the popular Warzone mode.
Guerilla Games also released a gameplay trailer for Killzone: Mercenary that you can view below. It looks like a poorly made military-enlistment advertisement from the future – let’s just hope reality never mirrors the grim future portrayed in the Killzone franchise.
Killzone: Mercenary, developed by Guerilla Games Cambridge and published by Sony, will be released on September 17th for PlayStation Vita.
