6d ago - Guerrilla Cambridge Lead Designer Gareth Hughes posted up a video today that demonstrates the Single-Player and Multiplayer modes in Killzone Mercenary for the PS Vita handheld.
Below are the details, to quote: Single Player: Lightning Strike
Two years after the Helghast attack on Vekta, the ISA are taking the battle to Helghan, their fleet gathering above the capital Pyrrhus.
You are Arran Danner, a mercenary currently under contract to the ISA. Your mission is to infiltrate a battery of Arc cannons and direct their fire away from the ISA fleet, instead targeting the Helghast cruisers overhead and opening a way into the city. This is critical to enabling the invasion of Pyrrhus to begin in earnest.
The covert nature of your mission commences with a wing suit drop into the facility; the only way to avoid detection by Helghast surveillance. Once inside your objective is to locate and hack the systems controlling the Arc cannon battery and unleash its devastating power on the unsuspecting Helghast cruisers above.
This won't be an easy ride, the battery is heavily guarded and the security protocols protecting the control systems will require you to interface directly with them using your VAN-Guard, right under the nose of the garrisoned troops.

To quote: With Killzone Shadow Fall, we are part of an exciting line up of launch titles for PS4. This is both daunting and exciting, but a good feeling to have!
Since the game's announcement earlier this year at the PlayStation Meeting 2013, we have been hard at work on Killzone Shadow Fall.
At the event, we were able to give you a brief glimpse of the direction we are taking the game with live on-stage gameplay.

Today we are happy to show you a developer diary as part of PlayStation's Conversations with Creators. In this video, we briefly talk about what it means to us to be a launch title on this new platform.
Killzone: Shadow Fall is scheduled for a Holiday 2013 release, and will be available exclusively on PS4.
