     Killzone 3, Sydney  ISA Recuitment Event 

 

Central Station was the designated meeting point for the ISA recruits gathered from all around Australia, from here we would be transported the secret ISA training camp to prepare us for the coming battle with the Helghan.

Upon our arrival we were quickly lead into the training facility where the walls had been covered in various Killzone themed propaganda material. Once all the recruits had entered the facility the lights were dimmed and we were all treated to a video presentation from the developers of the game made specifically for the event. This video contained exclusive insights into the game, its development and storyline, which generated discussions in clipped and hushed tones along with unified cheers from the crowd.

Once the video presentation had finished The "Commando" (as seen on The Biggest Loser and real life ex military) took charge (literally) and started to turn the community into soldiers if only for that night. He began by giving orders in a true military fashion by shouting and advising of the consequences of not following his commands to the letter, this really built the impression that was an actual real life recruitment camp and making us proceed in an orderly fashion into the teams that had been assigned to us by the numbers on the back of our dog tags.

From there our attention was directed to the back of the room were a massive black curtain was drawn back and their stood a Helghan solder, not a statue but an actual member of the Helghast with StA52SE Assault Rifle in hand, who’s glowing red eyes pierced through the swirling clouds of cold mist that surrounded him.

 

The recruits were ordered into one of the 10 different training areas where they would each get a chance to prove themselves. These areas would allow the community to try out Killzone 3 in 3D, in different environments and even get some hands on time with the yet to be released “Sharpshooter” controller.

 

Area 1 - This is My Weapon (Learning how to build a weapon in a battle scenario)

Area 2 - Cold Blooded (Refining your skills and keeping your cool while playing in a sub zero environment)

Area 3 – Wind, Snow and 3D (how well could you face the Helghast in realistic 3D, while being pelted with freezing snow and strong winds)

Area’s 4 through 7- Single Play Stations (Here players worked on improving their skills in a single player environment)

Area 8 - Dual on projector screen (take on your team mate in a dual to determine who is the greatest solider)

Area 9 - Multiplayer station (This is where the teams were split in to fight it out for supremacy)

Area 10 - Mess Hall (a chance for the new recruits to catch their breath and get some food)

Throughout the night the “Commando” was moving from group to group making sure that everyone was giving there all in the fight to beat Helghan.

 

Finally it was time to see who had benefited the most from the nights training and one recruit from each group was selected to take part in a final battle against there fellow recruits.

 

Actions was fast paced and all that were not fighting stood behind their team mate and cheered for them to be victorious, however in the end there could be only one winner who managed to accumulate an impressive 27 kills with the next closest competitor being 15 kills behind him.

 

Once the dust had settled and the victors final score confirmed it was time for the spoils of war to be distributed with each of the players in the final round receiving a copy of Killzone 3 and the player with the highest score receiving a Killzone 3 Helghast Edition.

With all the battles fought and the training completed we were directed back onto the buses for the trip back to central.

 

It was great night and it was fantastic to see some familiar faces from previous events along with being able to meet a few new people from the forums.

 

Hope you all enjoyed the event as much as we did and feel free to post up any pictures or your feedback from the night.

 

Cheers

Err yes. But it is an ordinary phone photo.

 

I got to feel his guns...   :Blush:

I have to say, thinking back, the Commando really made that event. He added that military feel, without being stupidly serious.
