Killzone Shadow Fall PS4 Q&A: The Black Hand on PlayStation 4

200°
42w ago - Killzone Community Editor Victor Zuylen posted up a Killzone Shadow Fall PS4 Q&A today dubbed The Black Hand on PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: Following our recent [Register or Login to view links] on the Black Hand, we've asked Art Director Roy Postma and Assistant Art Director Dan Calvert to tell us more about the creation and design of the radical Helghast subfaction from Killzone Shadow Fall.

Why do the Black Hand look so different from any of the foes seen before in the Killzone universe?

Dan Calvert: We're dealing with the universe-changing consequences of the demise of planet Helghan, plus the jump in time between Killzone 3 and Killzone Shadow Fall. We'd already started to see the Helghast fragment in Killzone 3 after Scolar Visari's death, and the loss of their home and a vast part of their population only furthered this.

The Helghast maintain their identity and their ideals, but their goals are now splintered. The Black Hand are the most divergent Helghast subfaction we see in Shadow Fall; they're not a regular army, and...
 

Video: Killzone: Shadow Fall PS4 Multiplayer Hands-on PlayStation 4

46w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman is here with a fresh video demonstrating Killzone: Shadow Fall PS4 Multiplayer hands-on with the PlayStation 4 console below.

To quote: Going hands-on with Killzone: Shadow Fall's multiplayer mode for the first time at Gamescom, I couldn't help but feel that Shadow Fall represents a sea change for the veteran shooter series.

The gameplay retains the series' signature weight and heft, so you never feel like you're ice-skating through the the meticulously detailed environments. But thanks to a host of refinements from Guerrilla Games, Shadow Fall is undeniably a faster, more fluid, and more satisfying Killzone. Call it Killzone reborn.

DualShock 4 plays a significant role here, with its massively upgraded ergonomics and shooter-friendly L2 and R2 triggers (though Shadow Fall will allow you to use the classic L1 and R1 as well, if you prefer).

After my play session, Game Director Steven ter Heide commented that the Shadow Fall no longer uses aim assist, making it a truer test of skill. And you'll never even notice that change, given the high responsiveness of DualShock 4's comfortable new analog sticks.





Of course, the spectacular graphics don't hurt...

Video: Hands On with Killzone: Shadow Fall on PS4 / PlayStation 4

51w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill went hands-on today with Killzone: Shadow Fall on PlayStation 4 with some PS4 footage below in video format.

To quote: At a recent event in New York, I got my hands on Guerrilla Games' upcoming PS4 launch title, Killzone: Shadow Fall.

The game will feel instantly familiar to anyone who's followed the long-running series, but there are enough new features and additions that even the most battle-worn Helghan veterans will want a primer before heading into battle.

The tools at your disposal in Shadow Fall are many: In addition to the requisite bullet-driven armaments, the new OWL drone gives you an enormous tactical advantage. Swipe up on DualShock 4's touchpad to set the OWL into attack mode, point your crosshairs at a space in front of an enemy and press L1 to deploy the drone, which both attacks its target head-on and serves as a distraction while you flank around the other side. The OWL is also incredibly useful when trying to keep track of one of the game's teleporting enemies. Just follow the bullets.

The OWL has other uses, too. Swipe left on the touchpad to put the drone into stun mode, which will incapacitate foes and nearby electronics.

Swipe downward for a drop-anywhere shield, creating last-minute...
 

Killzone: Shadow Fall Actors Revealed for PlayStation 4 / PS4 Title

200°
53w ago - Guerrilla Games Director Steven Ter Heide revealed the actors today for their upcoming PlayStation 4 / PS4 title Killzone: Shadow Fall below.

To quote: Although they've shared the same planet for thirty years, the Vektans and the Helghast are now on the brink of war. With both factions eager to protect their home and reclaim what they believe is theirs, trust has reached an all-time low. The wall built to separate both sides can no longer contain the enemy.

In Killzone: Shadow Fall, you'll serve as a Shadow Marshal under Vektan Security Agency director Sinclair, who has you perform the difficult missions that ensure the balance remains tipped in favor of the Vektans.

But Echo, an intelligence operative for the Helghast, has similar orders - and she will stop at nothing to accomplish them.

To bring these two key characters to life, we are very pleased to have secured the amazing talents of David Harewood, who plays Sinclair, and Jamie Gray Hyder, who has taken on the role of Echo. Watch the Killzone: Shadow Fall story teaser here (below) to see them in action.





David is a British actor best known for his role as that other intelligence agency director - David Estes, the deputy...
