Killzone: Mercenary Gets a New Release Date Plus Pre-Order Bonuses

Dodging the Grand Theft Auto bullet, Sony pushes up the Killzone: Mercenary release date.

In a rather wise move, PlayStation has decided to move up the release date of Killzone: Mercenary. The highly anticipated Vita title had the misfortune of a release date that was the same as Rockstar Games’ heavy hitter, Grand Theft Auto V. Now, you can get Killzone: Mercenary a week earlier.  You’ll be able to pick up the game for Vita on September 10th in North America and starting September 4th in Europe (6th in the UK).

Along with this news, PlayStation has released a bit of info on the pre-order bonuses you can expect to get with the game. The pre-order bonus is the “Blackjack’s Briefcase,” which includes:

  • Double XP Boost -Get out ahead of the pack! Start the 48-hour clock with this special access code and all contracts, bonuses and payoffs earn you twice the normal XP for two straight days!
  • In-Game Cash Bonus -Start the game and go straight to the armory! With this bonus payout, you’ll have enough Vektan Cash to pick up a new weapon before you even step foot on the battlefield.

United States GameStop pre-orders will also receive an exclusive gun for use in both Campaign and Multiplayer: the M224-A1 Light Machine Gun.
