Guerrilla Games game director Mathijs de Jonge has been chatting about the merits of swearing in games, and with Killzone 3 he feels the studio have got just the right amount.
"In Killzone 2 we ended up with too much of it," he told Edge. "The thing about swearing is that it's highly effective when it's done right, and in Killzone 3 I think there's some swearing but if feels a lot more impactful.
"It's at the right times," he added. "In total, I think there's seven 'f*** yous' and one 'mother***er'. I think that's fine."
Killzone 3's "bloody violence and strong language" earned the game an 18 rating from the BBFC.
