Road to Release - Killzone: Shadow Fall
Posted on Thursday, November 7 @ 13:25:12 Eastern by GR_Staff
Release Date: November 15, 2013 (But Now Available At Some Retailers)
Platforms: PS4 Exclusive
Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment
Developer: Guerrilla Games
Killzone: Shadow Fall aims to double-down on the graphically splendorous promises Guerrilla Games has made throughout the franchise's development. When Sony debuted their "Halo-killer" FPS title on PS2, the incredibly dark and gritty look immediately caught the eyes of gamers everywhere, but now that the trend of brown and gray environments has run its course, Shadow Fall aims to infuse great splashes of color and vibrancy to the mix.
In the end, it makes for a stunning and totally engrossing vision of the future where once warring civilizations settle into an uneasy and unstable peace for 30 years. After destroying the Helghast home planet, Vektans invite their sworn enemies to planet Vekta, but the great disparity in quality of life perpetuates a tense undertone around the world.
Players will have to define their own role in the conflict as Guerrilla leads them through the height of Vektan life and the depths of Helghan refugee camps. The stark and horrifying contrast will immediately call to memory our own society and today's ongoing conflicts between classes, between nations, and between people.
All told, Killzone: Shadow Fall hopes to pin the dreams of Helghan and Vektan people living peacefully together on the player, but there's always an opportunity for a new world war. Can the powder keg of age-old conflict be defused in time for the reign of peace to continue?
We'll find out in Killzone: Shadow Fall which launches exclusively on and side by side with the PlayStation 4 on November 15th. (Some retailers like Gamestop have copies available for sale now.) The single player campaign is complimented by a full customizable multiplayer suite called Warzones, all of which will be made better by PlayStation 4's next-generation processing and enhanced PlayStation Network.
