Killzone: Mercenary, a new first-person shooter in the Killzone series, developed for PS Vita by Guerilla Cambridge using the Killzone 3 engine, will be released on September 18, Sony has announced.

The game begins just after the end of the original Killzone and revisits many of the events from the Killzone trilogy. Players take control of a mercenary named Arran Danner, a former UCA-soldier who takes on paid contracts from the ISA as well as the Helghast.

A routine mission to evacuate the Vektan Ambassador and his family in Pyrrhus goes wrong, and Danner discovers that the outcome of the war could very well depend on the fate of the Ambassador's young son.

Mercenary feature nine single-player missions - each said to be around an hour in length - with replay challenges unlocking on completion. There's also a multiplayer mode offering six maps, designed to be played by up to eight players over three game types - Warzone mode included.

Every action in Killzone: Mercenary is rewarded with a payout deposited into an in-game bank account. This money can be used to buy gear and weapons for use in all game modes.
