Available from today in North America and tomorrow for Europe, Botzone delivers an offline multiplayer experience for players to enjoy when there is no internet connection available or who want a bit of practice before diving into the online game.
When you purchase this new mode, the ‘Botzone Soldier Training Pack’, all of the multiplayer maps from the game can be played offline in either Mercenary or Guerrilla Warfare modes – against as many as seven AI soldiers! Once you have made the purchase you will unlock the in-game Botzone menu.
As you will be the game’s host, you can decide how to balance the teams. The new Botzone mode will also see the AI using all of the features seen in Killzone Mercenary, with them being able to make the most of Vanguard usage, zip line navigation, interrogations, rescues, capsule hacking and valour card collection to name but a few.
Also confirmed is that multiplayer trophies can be obtained whilst playing in Botzone mode. So if you are finding any trophies hard to get hold of, here is your chance!
Finally there will also be a title update launching at the same time to fix previously reported collision issues when playing in the multiplayer maps. This will be a mandatory update for anyone wanting to play online and will require 23MB free on your Memory Card to download (549MB if you haven’t downloaded previous updates).
Costing $2.49 in North America and €2.49 in Europe, will you be buying Botzone? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
