The second downloadable pack for Killzone 2 will be hitting the PlayStation Store on June 11th 2009. The new pack, Flash and Thunder, will arrive after E3 and will feature two new maps: Beach Head and Southern Hills. The maps are from the original Killzone for PlayStation 2 but have been completely remade for PS3. The new downloadable pack will be available for purchase for $5.99. In addition, a new Killzone 2 patch will be arriving next week.
In Beach Head, the Helghast land on the sandy Vektan beaches forcing the ISA to defend their stronghold. Torrential rain and gale-force winds batter the landscape, with the water-filled craters supplying only limited cover. This harsh terrain requires you to keep your “head on a swivel” as enemies lurk around every corner.
Southern Hills takes the battle to a central Helghast base camp located on a hilltop. This version has been beefed up considerably over the original Killzone counterpart, with smaller structures offering plenty of hiding places that lend itself well to close quarters combat and long range sniping. Take cover when you hear alarms going off, as there might be a radioactive surprise headed your way.
