Killzone: Mercenary's next updates free up storage space, add free content

Guerrilla Cambridge will release three updates for its PlayStation Vita shooter, Killzone: Mercenary, over the next few months, reducing the footprint of the game's hefty patches and adding new multiplayer content.

Killzone: Mercenary's third update, due in "the next few weeks," will free up approximately 800 MB of space consumed by the game's first two patches. The Vita game's day-one and multiplayer stability patches each weighed in at more than 1 GB.

The game's fourth update is due in January. It will improve matching, help reduce connectivity problems and add an auto team-rebalancing feature, Guerrilla Cambridge senior producer Mark Green said on the PlayStation Blog. A fifth update plans to add two new multiplayer maps, as well as offline Botzone for Mercenary and Guerrilla Warfare modes.

Guerrilla has a sixth update for Mercenary in the works as well, which is focused on refinements and PS Vita TV support.
