Killzone 2 is finally here but it did suffer through that controversial trailer at E3 2005 quite alot. Guerrilla Games have said the trailer has provided them with inspiration to make the game not only be so good but look so good too.
But what if your were up against it after that trailer? Well, according to Managing Director of Guerrilla Games, Hermen Hurst, they needed to pull this one off.
In the latest GameTrailers newsletter, an interview with Hurst reveals what happened moments after the trailer was shown at E3 2005.
Asked what was his most embarrassing/memorable moment working in the industry, he said:
“One “uh-oh moment” during my time at Guerrilla was definitely E3 2005. Phil [Harrison, then head of Sony's WWS] had just shown our KZ2 concept trailer, the conference hall explodes, Phil asks JB [Jan-Bart van Beek], our Art Director and I to stand up, we get a standing ovation, look at each other, JB says: “that rocked!” and I say: “Damn, we’d better pull this one off”!“
But hey no worries, they did emphatically. It really is a game worth getting, it’s why we gave it a 10 in our review released early this morning.
