First Killzone 2 image shown

Single-level demo at E3.

The first in-game image for Sony's PS3 blockbuster Killzone 2 has appeared on the Internet.

The USA Today website hosts the image, which is apparently taken from the single-level demo being shown to press tonight at E3. Eurogamer's Tom Bramwell will be there, so expect our thoughts as soon as humanly possible.

Killzone 2 was one of the first titles shown alongside the PlayStation 3 two years ago at E3 2005. The lavish and eye-popping trailer had press salivating, but unfortunately concrete details were hard to come by.

However, Sony is still excited about its potential, and described it to USA Today as a "hardware mover" designed to show off exactly what the new machine can do.

It's a futuristic first-person shooter in development at Guerrilla Games that takes place on the alien planet of Helghan. Here you and your squad will be up against the mutated human Helghast race who have a few tricks up their sleeves - chiefly the ability to harness the power of the weather.

Killzone 2 will have multiplayer support and is expected sometime next year.
