Road to Release - Killzone: Shadow Fall
Posted on Thursday, November 7 @ 13:25:12 Eastern by GR_Staff
Despite Killzone's always intriguing and futuristic campaign, players will inevitably spend most of their time in Warzones which serve as the game's answer to other multiplayer suites full of weapons, modes, and challenges. That doesn't mean Warzones is without a lot of unique design choices that make it one of the more engaging and flexible online modes.
Warzones are fully customizable. The stock Warzones playlist will return Killzone players to a series of rotating objectives within a single match, but if you've got a specific itch, Warzones will give you what you need to scratch it.
If you want to create a rocket launchers-only mode for rampant and needless destruction, you can. If you want one team to be heavily outfitted with miniguns and shotguns, while another team has more armor and faster feet but nothing more than a knife, you can do that too. Warzones will flex to meet the player's desired multiplayer battleground, but try to keep it fair and balanced (and more importantly fun) and your custom Warzones mode might just get the spotlight from Guerrilla Games for the whole community to enjoy.
Further, Sony and Guerrilla Games have promised to make Killzone: Shadow Fall one of the most persistent and heavily supported launch games in history, with multiplayer updates rolling out on a tight schedule and two tiers of support for consumers.
You can pick up Shadow Fall's season pass to receive an added cooperative mode and more goodies down the line, but even without a hefty DLC purchase, new multiplayer maps will be added to the Warzone's rotation free of charge. If you want to continue the core customizable competitive experience without spending a dime beyond the base game, you'll be able to do so with the entire Killzone: Shadow Fall community. Guerrilla Games wants to ensure that by releasing new multiplayer maps for free that the launch-PS4 online community isn't segmented with every new DLC pack.
All told, if you can only afford one game with your shiny new PlayStation 4 console, Killzone: Shadow Fall will have hardcore first-person shooting action in spades and plenty of ongoing support.
Killzone: Shadow Fall will be out exclusively on PlayStation 4 at the system's launch on November 15th, its official release date, but is currently available for purchase at retailers.
