4w ago - Guerrilla Games Director Steven Ter Heide invites fans to watch the Killzone Shadow Fall PlayStation 4 launch trailer below today!
To quote: The wait is almost over - Killzone Shadow Fall comes out November 15th in North America, with the UK and Europe to follow on November 29th!
We're thrilled to be able to show you the launch trailer for Killzone Shadow Fall. It's been an amazing journey getting here, and we're proud of what we were able to accomplish on the new PlayStation 4 hardware. Killzone Shadow Fall represents another big leap forward for us, both in terms of gameplay as well as technology.
When we began working on Killzone Shadow Fall, we set out to redefine the Killzone FPS experience. It had to cater to a new, more resourceful playing style, requiring the use of tactics and intelligence to outmaneuver and outsmart enemies. At the same time, we wanted the game to remain true to its roots as a highly visceral shooter.
As excited as we are to talk about where we've taken the story and gameplay in the Killzone universe with Shadow Fall, we're just as eager to showcase the numerous ways in which we've leveraged the raw horsepower of the PS4 to push the tech in our engine to jaw-dropping new...
7w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Poria Torkan shared a new PlayStation 4 ttory trailer video showcasing Killzone Shadow Fall on PS4 below.
To quote: To what lengths would you go to defend your home?
That's the central question in this brand-new story trailer for Killzone Shadow Fall. On planet Vekta, where rival Helghast and Vektan factions are living side by side under an uneasy truce, the answer depends entirely on who you ask.
To Chancellor Visari, leader of the displaced Helghast people, the Vektans are aggressors that must be kept in check by whatever means necessary. To Vektan Security Agency Director Sinclair, the biggest threat to peace is the very presence of the Helghast people.
Sinclair and Visari aren't the only ones at odds over their plans for planet Vekta. Behind the scenes, forces within each faction have begun warring and conspiring to further their own agendas. Some, like the extremist splinter group Black Hand, want to force an all-out civil war.
Others, like Helghast intelligence operative Echo, are desperately trying to prevent it. As Shadow Marshal Lucas Kellan, you must deal with the escalating hostilities before they envelop the entire planet - but you'll quickly discover that trust is a scarce resource on Vekta.
7w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman is back with a Killzone Shadow Fall PS4 video today alongside answers to PlayStation 4 questions from fans below.
To quote: As Killzone Shadow Fall gears up for PS4's November 15th launch in North America, we caught up with Game Director Steven Ter Heide to get answers to your burning questions across single-player and multiplayer.
We reveal new details on co-op, dedicated servers, weapons, DualShock 4, and much more. Enjoy!
@ShawnMacLean: Is Killzone Shadow Fall a good entry point to the Killzone franchise?
Steven Ter Heide: Absolutely! In many ways, Killzone Shadow Fall is a fresh start for the franchise - the game takes place some thirty years after the original Killzone trilogy, so most of the characters and story arcs from those games have passed into history. And while die-hard fans will appreciate the nods to earlier Killzone titles, no knowledge of the Killzone universe is required to get into the story.
@nick_serio: How long is the campaign?
STH: Killzone Shadow Fall's campaign should last well over 10 hours for most gamers.
10w ago - Community Editor Victor Zuylen shared a Killzone Shadow Fall PS4 multiplayer Q&A on PlayStation 4 today alongside a video below.
To quote: Yesterday, Killzone Shadow Fall Lead Designer Eric Boltjes held a presentation on the game's multiplayer mode at the 2013 Eurogamer Expo in London. Afterwards he also fielded questions from the audience, going into greater detail about some of Killzone Shadow Fall's features and design choices.
You can watch the whole presentation here:
In addition to the answers Mr. Boltjes provided, we've compiled a list of some of the more frequently asked questions that have appeared online following our announcement of the multiplayer mode. In particular, we received numerous questions about the multiplayer framerate so, let's dive right in:
Will Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer have a variable frame rate?
No, we're running 60fps. However, the game may drop a few frames in extreme situations - when there are a lot of GPU-intensive things going on at once. Guaranteeing a constant 60fps under such circumstances would've required undesired concessions.
We wanted to make sure Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer would present a visual spectacle, boasting...
15w 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.
