Original Killzone coming to PSN in HD

An HD remake of the original Killzone was already on the way in next month's Trilogy Collection, now Sony has announced that the game will also be available (sans parts 2&3) on the PSN.

It's true, the first game in the Killzone series (billed as a Halo-killer by some before launch) was a pretty big letdown. The gunplay wasn't all that great and the characters were pretty bland to say the least. The series has gotten much better though in recent years (personally, I loved K2's campaign) and a re-release of Killzone with an HD coat of paint might be a big hit with fans who've never played the 2004 PS2 title.
Originally released for PlayStation 2 in 2004, Killzone tells the story of Jan Templar, an ISA Captain whose home planet comes under attack from a Helghast invasion army. Together with a hot-headed sergeant named Rico, a deadly Shadow Marshal known as Luger, and the half-human, half-Helghast spy Hakha, Templar must attempt to reactivate the Orbital Defense Platform and drive the invading forces from his planet Vekta.
The game will be hitting the PSN day and date with the Trilogy Collection on October 23rd in the US for $14.99 (USD). It's a little unclear at this point if Killzone HD will see a simultaneous release in other territories as well, but we'll find out soon enough I'm sure.

And I'm also sure there are more than a few folks out there who'll be very happy to hear that the game will indeed be packing a full clip of Trophies. Sony was kind enough to release a full list of what you'll get when you hear that magic tone, so hold on tight 'cause here we go:
