Killzone 2 follows the events of Killzone (2004) and Killzone: Liberation (2006), and is set on the planet Helghan, the home world of the Helghast who invaded an Interplanetary Strategic Alliance (ISA) colony. Two years after the Helghast assault on Vekta, the ISA launched an assault on the enemy's home world of Helghan. The ISA goal is to capture the Helghast leader, Emperor Visari, and bring the Helghast war machine to a halt. You assume the role of Sergeant Tomas "Sev" Sevchenko, a battle-hardened veteran of the special forces unit the "Legion" assigned to Alpha team, who goes on a mission to take out the Helghast threat.

The level shown in the demo was that of the Helghan capital Pyrrhus, a possible reference to the king of the Molossians. The name may also be evocative of the Helghan style of warfare. See more
