Next week, Sony will try something a little bit different with one of its most popular first-party titles. The multiplayer portion of Guerilla Games' Killzone 3 will be broken out as a standalone PS Store download, and a free one at that.
The confirmation comes from the latest PlayStation Blogcast (via Eurogamer), with the U.S. release launching on Tuesday, February 28. The download includes all maps, but the free version includes an unspecified level cap. Yes-- there's your catch. You'll have to shell out $14.99 for full access to the multiplayer.
With the full game selling at around $25 new right now, this isn't a bad deal at all. Whatever the level cap may be, the free download is certainly a better taste of the game than you'd get from a proper demo.
