I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

Road to Release - Killzone: Shadow Fall

Posted on Thursday, November 7 @ 13:25:12 Eastern by GR_Staff



The Killzone series has always been about the conflict between Helghast and Vektan, but players have seen that war from many different angles throughout the series.

Killzone - In the first game, the Helghast attacked Vekta after the first Extrasolar War. Both planets had lived for generations after mankind first began to explore the stars, but when the Helghans attack, it's up to players in the role of Interplanetary Strategic Alliance Captain Jan Templar to fend off the hordes of invading soldiers.

As players progress through the story, Guerrilla wields a tale of shadow forces betraying the ISA every step of the way, leaving players to feel like they've won the battle, but not yet the war.

Killzone 2 - The second game in the franchise opens on an invasion force of ISA troops deploying on planet Helghan near the capital city, Pyrrhus, and this bloody campaign barely succeeds in establishing a foothold for Vektan forces in their assault on the Helghast. The theater of war is further complicated by an ISA nuclear weapon, stolen and used by the Helghast to destroy their own city and much of the ISA force.

After players fight through this chaos with ISA Alpha Team leaders Sev and Rico, they soon come face to face with Helghan leader Scolar Visari who taunts Rico into enacting vengeance for the Vektan lives lost earlier in the game. Visari's last words are "The madness... begins," and with that another fleet of Helghast ships comes to further punish the invading and crippled ISA. The war continues.

Killzone 3 - The third game in the series picks up with Sev and Rico once more and tasks players with making sense of the scattered ISA fleet, the politics going on between Helghan military and arms contractors, and just how to get out of this messy war alive. When a cease-fire is negotiated, Sev is captured and Rico must rescue his old partner and any remaining ISA forces.

Soon, the head of Helghan's biggest weapons manufacturer executes the planet's absolute ruler and turns his sights on Earth in a mad grab for power, but not before Sev and Rico interrupt his plans. In the chaos, a nuclear warhead is dropped on a cache of special Helghan weapons which consumes the planet in fire, ending countless Helghan lives and the war between the ISA and Helghast.
