From the Ashes will mark the the third DLC Pack to be released for Killzone 3 and it will feature 4 brand new multiplayer maps. It is already available on the PSN and for the price of $4.99, which certainly puts Call of Duty pricing to shame. But, if you are new to Killzone 3 then you can grab the bundle pack for $9.99 which includes these four maps and the previous four maps as well.
The first of the new maps is called Lente Missile Base, which is a Warzone map for 24 players set inside an abandoned missile base . Petrusite, Lente Base is slowly being reclaimed by Helghan’s strange plant life. As both factions vie for control of the base, the facility begins firing its missiles – frying anyone caught in the underground exhaust vents, making for quite a challenging experience.
Mobile Factory, the second map in the pack, is a Guerrilla Warfare map for 16 players set aboard one of the largest vehicles from the single player campaign. Part resource production facility, part moving fortress, the Mobile Factory is a strategic asset that both factions desperately want to seize control of. Combatants need to watch their step, however, as a single mistake can cause them to plummet into the heavy duty scrap metal shredders at the bottom of the facility. Those looking to do some shredding of their own will be able to wield one of two portable miniguns found in the Mobile Factory.
Next up, Tharsis Depot, is a Guerrilla Warfare map for 16 players based on the Killzone 2 classic. It is a converted nulcear Petrusite plant, that allows for plenty of jetpack combat. Check out each video to see how it’s changed from the original.
Finally, another retro map redone, Radec Academy, a Warzone map for 24 players. An academy ruined from years of war with strewn rubble and emplaced StA-3 miniguns serving as grim reminders of the fierce battles fought in the area. As the ISA forces once again push into the Academy compound, attempting to scavenge a downed MAWLR, the Helghast troops hastily fortify their defenses within its perimeter. Again, there are a video for the new and original versions for your partitive pleasure.
These maps look like they could certainly add hours of enjoyment to the mutiplayer as it can get stale at times.
I would highly recommend grabbing the triple pack bundle if you haven’t already purchased the other DLC, it includes the Retro Pack, the Steel Rain Pack as well as the From The Ashes Pack.
