    Apologies folks if this is the wrong section to post this question in, it's just that I couldn't find a a Vita specific section to post in :?

    Anyhow, I don't own a Vita at the moment, but with some Xmas money who knows ;) Killzone Mercenary is one title that would hasten me to buy Sony's handheld, so, do any of you knowledgable folks when Mercenary is scheduled for release :?:

    Martok-
    We don't have a PS Vita section at the moment so I've moved this to Multi-Platform. I've also added a bit more to the forum description to make it clearer to folks, so thanks for pointing this out. :)

    I've had a look again and there is no release date for Killzone Mercenary, just that it'll be out in 2013.

    If only they were creating this for both PS3 and Vita and making it a cross-buy game, that would be superb!

    You are bang on Martok, cross buy would be immense. Mind you in saying that another Killzone of any description would do for me :D
    Now, thinking about the above points, I must dig out my KZ3 disc again ;)

    Killzone: Mercenary Multiplayer Open Beta in late August; Closed Beta live now

    [​IMG]

    Calling all mercenaries,

    We recently opened up enrolment for the Killzone: Mercenary Public Limited Multiplayer Beta on PlayStation Vita to give you a chance to get involved.

    We’re excited to announce that this phase of the Beta is now LIVE.

    The Public Limited Beta phase is used to collect feedback from you, but is limited in size to make sure the servers are gradually tested in preparation for Open Betas and the full launch.

    To those of you who got in to the Public Limited Beta, the necessary information has now been sent to your registered e-mail address so that you can jump in and get going.

    To those of you who didn’t get in or are just hearing about this now, worry not: we’re going to be running an Open Multiplayer Beta for Killzone: Mercenary in late August! Details will be coming soon, so stay tuned.

    Open Betas are a good way for the development team to really test the servers to make sure they are ready for launch. And of course, you get to have a taste of the multiplayer mode before it the game is released!

    Killzone: Mercenary hits the shelves on September 4th, 2013 for Europe Mainland, September 5th, 2013 for Spain and Portugal and September 6th for UK, Ireland and Australia.

    Check out the Multiplayer Development Diary that Guerilla Cambridge have created just for you.

    The Call Of Duty is a much maligned game. Ive got this and really like it. Its not a full blown COD, but instead a series of spec ops missions, which is a shame. Still very good though.
