Killzone 3: New ‘Steel Rain’ DLC Pack Arriving Today

Just yesterday we announced that the latest Killzone 3 update (patch 1.07) would be released on April 6th, which of course means that it will be available at some point today. Now it appears that the update isn’t the only thing that is being released today, as fans also have a new DLC pack to look forward to.

As Tamoor Hussain over on the website recently reported, the new ‘Steel Rain’ DLC pack — which will be available to download from the PlayStation Store — provides players with two brand new multiplayer maps that have both been inspired by areas within the single player campaign.

The first of these new maps is Junkyard, a Guerrilla Warfare map that sees both Jet-Packs and Exoskeletons battling it out in a rain-drenched trash processing facility. The second new map is Stahl Arms, a Warzone map that takes place in a Helghan weapons manufacturing plant.

According to Bill Hess over at, it’s only PlayStation 3 owners in Europe that are getting the new ‘Steel Rain’ map pack today. Thos who live in North America unfortunately have to wait until April 12th to start playing the new maps. PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to download the pack for free.

Are you looking forward to playing the two new maps?
