Grab Killzone: Mercenary a Week Early, Pre-order Bonuses Detailed

With each passing week, we edge closer to the launch of Killzone: Mercenary, the first PlayStation Vita entry in the acclaimed series. Contrary to convention, Mercenary is also edging a bit toward us: we can today confirm a new North American release date of September 10th — a week earlier than our previous target.


Grab Killzone: Mercenary a Week Early, Pre-order Bonuses Detailed

Players who pre-order Killzone: Mercenary will receive “Blackjack’s Briefcase,” a reward for their early support that affords them an early edge in both the game’s competitive online multiplayer and extensive Campaign mode. It includes:

Double XP Boost
  • Get out ahead of the pack! Start the 48-hour clock with this special access code and all contracts, bonuses and payoffs earn you twice the normal XP for two straight days!
In-Game Cash Bonus
  • Start the game and go straight to the armory! With this bonus payout, you’ll have enough Vektan Cash to pick up a new weapon before you even step foot on the battlefield.

In addition to the above, fans in the United States who reserve a copy of Killzone: Mercenary at GameStop will receive an exclusive gun for use in both Campaign and Multiplayer action: the M224-A1 Light Machine Gun.

  • A powerhouse weapon of the ISA, the M224-A1 carries more than enough ammo to get the job done at the cost of accuracy. Fortunately for a Mercenary, subtlety is not always a mission requirement.

  • Any chance we could move this up….to say, May 21st? LOL
    Can’t wait guys. KZ fan….and my Vita wants more (AAA stuff) !

    Also, please don’t pay (too much attention) to the “change the controls” nonsense. Mechanics are a beaut in the series.

  • whaf about people in canada, do we get the preorder bouns too? i llve killzone and would hate to not have one of my favorite guns in the series not avalible to me.

  • In the first sentence in your article, I find it quite strange and possibly a clue that you have another game up your sleeve. Maybe it is nothing, but for people who did not catch it here it is:

    “With each passing week, we edge closer to the launch of Killzone: Mercenary, <<>>.

    Hopefully that means a sequel as well!

  • With each passing week, we edge closer to the launch of Killzone: Mercenary, “the first PlayStation Vita entry in the acclaimed series.” Sorry arrows did not work properly.

  • Is that removal of screen swipes when using melee kills?

    If so, then good. It was really (I mean REALLY) obnoxious for Uncharted: GA

  • People always complain about the “weight” of the aiming. That’s the best thing in this series. You’re carrying a gun not a daffodil. Call of Duty games are that way if you prefer the featherweight guns.

  • @ 2 G-Force08 – One must be nuts to give a damn to GTA when there is a KZ game coming out.

    @ 6 D-Squad3 – The aiming on KZ2 is bad I agree but KZ3?…what you’re talking about?…the aiming on KZ3 is perfect they improved a lot from KZ2…I really hope that they keep the aiming feel of KZ3.

    Anyway great news…I want you guys to take your time to make the game as best as possible but 1 week early is very welcome lol.Cant wait.Day 1 buy.

  • Thjis is so already pre-order more helghast to wipeout dood!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Please tell me that sniping with Sixaxis controls is back. Drove me absolutely ape S$$T Crazy not having it in Killzone 3 like had in Killzone 2.

  • Smart of you guys not to compete with GTA V! I hope that this will finally be a great FPS for PS Vita.

  • Now i need wait for the prevent to the PS3 or PS4

  • Is there a possibility for an open beta? Maybe something for 1 or 2 days perhaps? Idk, it feels like it would be monumental for Guerilla Games to allow this. Not only would fans get a taste of the game, but GG would get valuable feedback about the servers, frame-rate and early glitches/exploits. Those could be ironed out quickly with a patch or two.

  • @55: I knew something felt different about this trailer. I hope that’s the case! Because I know for sure that reviewers will trash the game for that. Vita games get rail-roaded by reviews enough without adding forced touch to the equation.

    And personally, for this game, it just didn’t look like it added anything. So here’s hoping it is in fact gone and not just removed (visually) for the trailer.

  • OH great, another generic crappy FPS. Blech!

  • how to order? :))

  • Are these bonuses for the retail, PSN release, or both?

  • PSN pre-order please! :)

  • Dayum… dude got stabbed in the junk!

  • Awesomeness awaits!

  • I was so proud when I plat killzone 2 first week playing online and I got between the 1% top players of the week without any help, It was soooo nice to see that trophy pop, I felt in love with killzone then. I¨ll get this game for sure, and still need to get trilogy to put it on my Killzone 3 collector´s edition Helghast head

  • Digital Pre Order PLEASE! :)

  • Hear me.. please make a special edition Vita Killzone bundle. You will have at least one sale :P

  • hoping u has fastened the movement of the character….not the movement of the gun.

  • This Game!!!! Makes me wish I wasn’t broke so I could buy a fu cripplin PS Vita already!!!!! BUT I WANT IT!!!! Dx

  • Great to hear you are keeping some weight in the controls. I play Killzone for that feeling. I hate playing an FPS and feeling like a gun on a stick.

  • i really hope this game is good cause the reason i got a vita was for the fps.theres not even one ok fps on vita.

  • Is the preorder bonus available in Canada and if so at what retailers?
