If you thought the battle lines were clear, you’ve not seen the whole story. Killzone™ Mercenary for the PlayStation®Vita system—winner of IGN’s Best PS Vita Game of E3 2013—throws players into a deadly firefight as part of a ruthless Mercenary faction, one taking on paid contracts from not only the dangerous ISA but the vicious Helghast as well. In Killzone™ Mercenary, there is no good. There is no evil. There is only the mission... and the money.  War is Our Business.
Developed by Guerrilla Cambridge, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, Killzone™ Mercenary is the first handheld entry in the series to retain the console titles’ first-person shooter gameplay and which promises to combine an epic single-player campaign with a substantial multiplayer offering. Developed exclusively for the PlayStation®Vita system.
Full Campaign Mode: Play through 9 massive single-player missions, each with additional challenges and special objectives.
Breathtaking Graphics: Built on the same Killzone™ engine used on PlayStation®3 system, Killzone™ Mercenary has stunning visuals and the smooth gameplay shows off the PS Vita system like no other game.
Robust Multiplayer: Intense combat for up to 8 players keeps the competition fierce.
