Killzone: Mercenary, an entirely new entry into the KILLZONE franchise was announced at GAMESCOM today by Sony, among the huge number of other VITA announcements and demos at the show.

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’re free to decide which tactics and loadouts you’ll 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. But what is the price of that freedom – and will you discover it before it’s too late?

Killzone: Mercenary is slated for a 2013 release. Stick with InsideTheBox for GAMESCOM 2012 coverage!
