Killzone PS3 backed by DLC

As dev costs rival a feature film.

The PlayStation 3 version of Killzone will benefit from downloadable content after it's released, as yet more details sneak out of Dutch developer Guerrilla.

This time it's thanks to an article on the game in newspaper de Volksrant, which reportedly focuses on the comparison between Killzone's costs and scope and that of an upcoming film by Paul Verhoeven.

Development of Killzone on PS3 is expected to top the EUR 16m spent on the film Black Book, according to director Arjan Brussee, who also confirms that around 120 people are working on the game - made famous by its pre-rendered appearance at E3 last year.

Slightly more substantive than the bluster was the news that "the Killzone that is in stores is only the beginning," with GameSpot reporting that, while de Volksrant didn't specify what form they would take, new "chapters" would follow the game's release.

Although the game's still some way off, it's been in the headlines recently after Sony's Phil Harrison remarked that it will be shown off again next year, and that "some elements already exceed the trailer".
