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

200°
54w 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 Mercenary on PS Vita: Week One Multiplayer Stats

55w ago - Guerrilla Cambridge Senior Producer Mark Green posted up a fresh Killzone Mercenary PS Vita video today spotlighting the week one multiplayer stats below.

To quote: A week after Killzone Mercenary's launch, one of the great things to see is how so many different people play the game in so many different ways.

Looking at the stats I can see that the M82 and the silenced STA-52SE are the weapons of choice for a lot of people, each racking up 5M+ kills already, but digging deeper it's great to see that some of the other weapons are being wielded very effectively.

I'd expected my personal favourite - the STA-14 - to be topping the headshot charts, but it's actually being pipped at the post by the up close and personal touch of the silenced STA-18SE.

It seems there are a lot of you out there who really don't want to show up on the radar! No doubt those people have already bought the Infiltrator Armour as well.

Video: Killzone: Mercenary Hits PS Vita in North America Today

55w ago - Guerrilla Cambridge Senior Producer Mark Green confirmed alongside a launch trailer video that Killzone: Mercenary hits PS Vita in North America today!

To quote: Killzone Mercenary is out today in North America!

Players who purchase Killzone Mercenary on PlayStation Store will receive the "Blackjack's Briefcase" pre-order bonus, which includes an in-game cash bonus and 48 hours of Double XP.

(Please note that you must be online for the Double XP bonus to count.) Next Tuesday, September 17th, the offer goes away and users who purchase on PSN will only get the game. If you're keen to go digital, take advantage before it's too late!

It's been a fantastic voyage for us, and we're immensely proud of what we've been able to create - the true Killzone FPS experience on a handheld.

A twin-stick shooter on a HD screen in the palm of your hands, with substantial replayability built in and, if I do say so myself, an addictive multiplayer game integral to the whole experience.





The multiplayer game has been through a few stages of Betas over the last couple of months, and we are immensely grateful to all everyone who took part - especially those who took the time to provide...
 

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

200°
57w 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...

To quote: We're just a few weeks away from the launch of Killzone: Mercenary, but gamers won't have to wait that long to cut their teeth on Mercenary's impressive multiplayer suite.

Then, on August 27th (after the Store update), the beta will open up further to become available to all North American PS Vita owners, coming to a close on September 3rd.
