Free-to-play Killzone 3 multiplayer confirmed for EU

Guerrilla Games has confirmed that Killzone 3's multiplayer component will be made available to European players as a standalone free download.

Announced for the US last week, the download includes all weapons, game modes and maps, including those released as DLC, but free players' progress is capped at a certain level. By paying £11.99 / €14.99, players can continue to level up beyond the rank of Sergeant I – the tenth rank in the game.

The multiplayer mode will be free to download from tomorrow. Those that pay for the full version will be able to enjoy a weekend of double XP, beginning this Friday at 5pm UK time.
