Since it kicked off in 2004, Killzone has taken the gaming market by storm. The shooter franchise recently unleashed its fifth instalment – and second only hand-held title – Killzone: Mercenary, for PlayStation’s Vita.
Starting just after the conclusion of the original Killzone, and revisiting many of the events from the preceding trilogy, Killzone: Mercenary puts players in the rugged combat boots of hired gunman, Arran Danner. Danner is a former UCA-soldier who has no qualms about taking on paid contracts from the ISA as well as the Helghast.
Mercenary throws players into some seriously deadly fire-fights but leaves them free to decide which tactics and load-outs they’ll use to fulfil their assigned contracts. With each task you complete come the rewards of more weaponry and money, making your chances of surviving stronger.
As you can imagine, the build-up is more intense here than in most games of this calibre.
Killzone: Mercenary is available for PS Vita, RRP $54.95.
