Killzone 3 Multiplayer Goes Free to Play

Released as a standalone download, the PSN game will include "all the maps" from Guerrilla's shooter, and will be playable up until an undisclosed level cap. After that cap, if you want to keep playing, you'll have to fork over $15. If you don't care about leveling up and just want to have fun - all the more power to you.
