First face-kicking Killzone 3 trailer hits

The first official trailer for Killzone 3 hit the European PlayStation blog earlier today, and it highlights one of the sequel's coolest new additions: the more elaborate close-quarters kills we talked up in our hands-on preview last week, rendered here in super-stylized, extra-brutal slow motion:

Aside from showing a Helghast getting pummeled to death, the trailer also gives us a look at the (presumable) protagonist, who may or may not be an older, hairier version of Killzone 2's Tomas "Sev" Sevchenko...

... who ends the video by donning his defeated enemy's helmet.

Having only seen one level of the game, it's impossile to tell at this point if this is just a cool-looking touch meant to end the video with an iconic Helghast glare, or if it hints at a possible new disguise mechanic/rogue Helghast faction allied with the ISA. Either way, it makes for a pretty cool teaser.

    So many things to speculate about... This makes me want to know more about the game. Great trailer!

    This trailer looks so damn sexy. Its almost like Bond credits! That looks like Sev in the trailer. I can tell because I caught a glimpse of the crappy haircut. My instincts tell me that the whole helmet thing was just for show, but I would like to play a Helghan like in the first game. In KZ2. the Helghan lacked personality, the didnt seem like human beings. I want KZ3 to make me sympathize with some of them. I rougue faction allied with the ISA would be awesome and add something cool to the storyline (which was lacking a bit in KZ2.) By the way, someone else commented on another Killzone 3 article that there were no female Helghast. Thats a good point actually. Sure, the Helghan women would look baldy and ugly like all the men, but y'know... for equality's sake.

    Would be a nice to play as a Helghan soldier, for a change! I hope they'll fix the controls more on this game... I was never satisfied by the poor sensitivity the game provided...

    This is one of the best trailers I've seen in a while

    Looks too much like a Halo/Gears of War ad for my liking. I love KZ2 I just hope this trailer is purely to showcase the melee system and not a sign of cloning to come. recaptcha: $200 exhausts wtf!?!

    I already said this once and I'll say it again, this trailer looks like it's trying to antagonize the ISA a bit, I really hope we get to play as the Helghan, and not just a gimmicky infiltration mission

    I hope it’s better than killzone 2
