Killzone 3 is set to introduce cinematic deaths which will add a dramatic spectacular punch, allowing players new ways to take care of the Helghast. Victor Zuylen, Community Editor at Guerrilla, wrote on the official Killzone website,
For instance, a Helghast drop ships struck by a barrage of W.A.S.P. projectiles doesn’t have to simply drop out of the sky; the force of impact can tear off the ship’s stabilizers, causing it to bank and spiral wildly out of control before slamming into the ground with a massive explosion. Of course, this also makes it more difficult to predict where the drop ship will come down, as Sev finds out:
Another cool example is the jetpack trooper: if the player keeps firing on the jetpack’s fuel tank it will eventually rupture and ignite, propelling the screaming trooper skyward in a ball of flame. As the fuel burns up, the trooper’s charred remains fall back to the ground – and, if the player’s lucky, onto the heads of other Helghast soldiers or nearby oil drums.
