I spent 1000+ hr playing Killzone 2 online. It's a good multiplayer. while Killzone 3 online is horrible. The should shut it down long before March 29th, 2018.

It's time to go back and enjoy some Killzone 2 online before they shut it down then....

Killzone 2 has some tough online trophies--- so I would advise against starting it if you are one of the perfectionists. I don't know how many players are playing online but i hope some of them will come back for the last run before the server shutdown. Warzone (32 players) is where the chaos/fun is for Killzone 2 online.

I have to download firmware update 4.82 (Nov 14, 2017) for my PS3 atm. Sony is still updating the PS3 even after discounting the system already Wireless G -- it feels like forever downloading and then the installing.....


**updated**

I can see why they want to shut the server down now

Resistance multiplayer long ago ceased. they need to patch trophies to eliminate the need for online trophies to platinum

2009 ---> shutting down in 2018 ? you have plenty of time to play those games ... so probably no patch.. earn them or lose them!

They shut down Resistanc multiplayer long ago.. MAG was also shut down a few years back.. .when you don't have enough players online.. it's time to shut down anyway..


@dulun18 what time you are on ? I'll participate in a few matches with a couple of friends over the next few months.. one last run for Killzone 2 or Killzone 3 ? which game?

There are few players playing Killzone 3 + no spawn grenades so it's annoying having to run from the spawn point over and over again when you have no tactician on your team.

I will be playing Killzone 2. Business will be slow for the next few days so i'll be on around the afternoon and play for as long as i can over the next 3 days. You will see more players logging on around 6-7PM on the weekdays and 3-4 PM on the weekend.

I was in a full warzone match yesterday! some of them left near the end of the match but having 25-32 players will make it fun. I killed 6 guys within 1 second in one match (sadly you can't record gameplay on the ps3).

It's always sad to see the end of an era, especially since Killzone: Shadow Fall never appealed to me much.

I decided to check out Killzone 2 multiplayer as well KIllzone 3 and... well, i might as well give my thoughts about them.

Killzone 2 : It should be mentioned that i never checked the multiplayer until recently, and i have to say, i'm honestly surprised that people are still playing this. I'm still a beginner at this, though.

As for the game, it's fun. Something i find weird is that turrets can headshot you. Why? I don't remeber that happening in any other game. Another i find amusing how common air support drones are. Finally, the thing i have to dislike is that how much gunfire turrest take before they get destroyed.

As for the trophies, i've collected all the offline trophies, but not the online ones. Most of them are tough to get, but even if i don't get the platinum, i'm happy if i manage to one or two. That's it.


Killzone 3 : It's been a few years since i last played this, but i'm playing this again, for good times sake before it closes forever.

This game's multiplayer is my favorite. They fixed many things from the previous one, and brought new ones. Ah, the feeling when you're flying with jetpack... It never gets old. Aside from the other modes, Operation is something i enjoy the most.

As for the trophies, much easier than in the previous game. I got the platinum few years ago, however i haven't collected the DLCs. Will i do that? We'll see what happens.


As as bonus:

Killzone Shadow Fall : This, while not as great as previous ones, it's still fun. However, getting killed is much easier which can ruin my fun. Maybe the players are more skilled? You tell me.

The (online) trophies are, without a doubt, the hardest between all three games. It's because of leveling skills is an absolute pain. Yes, it's possible to boost them against bots, thanks to patches, but even so. Still got the platinum, though.

It also has a co op mode, that is if you have the DLC. It's a shame that people don't seem to play that mode too much. Should i be lucky that i got the trophies for that DLC, too?

And that's all i have to say for now. I have to say, i'm amazed how long they have kept KZ2 and KZ3 multiplayer open. Life is full of wonders, i suppose.

Pretty much. 40-50 players online now a day (WORLDWIDE)..I spent more time on Killzone 2 online than i thought. I use the same username for PSN ID. I'm the type who will charge into gunfire so i'll as many enemies as my number of deaths. I like that headshot sound!

I played both of them several years ago. It's a bummer that online support for Killzone 2 & 3 will be shut down for good. But, I didn't like both of them for different reasons.

12 more days until the servers are shut down for good. The end of an era.
