Guerrilla Cambridge has announced that Killzone: Mercenary, a first-person shooter that makes full use of the PlayStation Vita's graphical and input capabilities, is now available in North America. The game was launched last week across Europe (including UK), Middle East and Australia.
Killzone: Mercenar was built on the same engine as Killzone 3, and it enhances the familiar twin-stick FPS control scheme with touch pad functionality for interesting new gameplay possibilities. For the first time in a Killzone campaign, you'll be fighting alongside Helghast forces as well as ISA specialists, carrying out missions that the regular soldiers just won't or can't. As a mercenary you are free to decide which tactics and loadouts you will use to fulfill your contract; your employers will reward you with state-of-the-art weaponry and cold, hard cash as long as you get the job done.
