Mathijs de Jonge:
As Game Director at Guerrilla, Mathijs de Jonge is responsible for the vision and quality of the design of Killzone 3. Hailing from the demoscene, he joined the company that eventually became known as Guerrilla in 1997.
Mathijs was a Game Director on several handheld titles and the Lead Artist on the multi-platform ShellShock: 'Nam 76. He resumed his duty as Game Director on Killzone: Liberation for PlayStation Portable, and on Killzone 2 for PlayStation 3, both of which received wide critical and popular acclaim.
Jan-Bart van Beek:
As Art Director at Guerrilla, Jan-Bart van Beek is responsible for the overall quality of art and animation for Killzone 3. Originally a photography student at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague, Jan-Bart soon turned to computer graphics software to enhance his work. After graduation, he applied his knowledge as a CG artist in the field of advertising.
His ambition to create something more enduring eventually led him to join Guerrilla, where he became Lead Artist on the first Killzone title for PlayStation 2, and Art Director on Killzone 2 for PlayStation 3.
SynopsisThe Helghast just won't die. You defeated their violent, cold-hearted leader, Visari. Along with the Interplanetary Strategic Alliance, you evacuated their planet. You thought it was over, but you thought wrong. The Helghast have returned to terrorize the universe with more battalions, more weapons and more anger than ever. The threat is as real as ever — it's a Killzone out there and the challenge is on. Even the power of the ISA seems unable to match the recharged armies of the Helghast, and the future looks bleak. The universe needs someone with sharpshooting precision and untiring courage. The universe needs a hero. The universe needs you. In this special Helghast Edition of Killzone 3, experience the thrills of battle and get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of the game with bonus video content. A cloaking marksman action figure keeps your head in the game when you're just hanging out. Compatible with 3D technology to really pull you into the battle, the third installment of Killzone gives you more abilities, more advanced weapons and more access to thrilling high-speed vehicles than before. Play alone and control all the action of war with your own fingertips, or enlist your friends to join you in innovative new game modes. Revel in the fantastic imagery from the Killzone universe in the exclusive art book and enjoy the authentic Helghast helmet replica that opens to reveal the game, the art book and a Super Voucher. The Super Voucher includes exclusive access to the Killzone 3 soundtrack, a retro map pack and a PS3 dynamic theme. With the Super Voucher, you'll also get double XP and access to every weapon and ability for the first 24 hours of multiplayer gameplay to give you a distinct advantage over the Helghast.
