If true, this announcement confirms that the PS4 is definitely coming out this year, and Killzone 4 might be the killer IP we're expecting at launch.

I like the series, but the third game wasn't nearly as enjoyable as the first two.

Still - really hope this rumor's true.

If this is true, then damn it. I was trying to tell myself not to get a PS4 at launch since I just bought a new PS3 a few days ago :(

Red_Orange_Juice1655d ago (Edited 1655d ago )

Good I need some KZ4 multilayer

Dylila1655d ago

it will look better than crysis 3 on ultra for pc.

hardcorehippiez1655d ago

of course it will but the pc elite wont ever admit it

LackTrue4K1655d ago

I'm a. Big big fan!!! Hell, (look at my profile picture)
I have the "G" from Gurilla Games tattooed on both my arms! Can't wait to see if this is all true!!!

Plagasx1655d ago (Edited 1655d ago )

Yea, dem next-gen blur effects to hide ugliness.

nintendoland1655d ago


can I have that thing you are smoking? ;)

I think the eye candy will be stunning. I wonder what extra advantages they will have "art direction wise", with the extra power, the handcuffs are almost off now, they will (do) have so much extra room to create a stunning masterpiece, not to even mention the extra power to add in wonderful new gameplay twists and expansive set pieces....

I also hope we get to hear about there other "IP"...Exciting times ahead for sure...

Killzone 2 was this generations best FPS followed by COD4: Modern Warfare. The online was an absolute delight. The clan system worked so well and the matches were so much fun. There is no doubt in my mind that if this is true, we're looking at a system seller.

There are few franchises that i wanted for PS4 at launch, Klllzone was in the top. Picture yourself the graphics!

If you think about it, this makes perfect sense atleast in marketing terms.... KZ4 for PS4.

KwietStorm1655d ago

Isn't that what he said?

InMyOpinion1655d ago

@aCasualGamer - Subjective of course but I think Battlefield 3 had better multiplayer than Killzone 2.

KiRBY30001655d ago


nope, this generation's best console multiplayer FPS was Bad Company 2, hands down.

aCasualGamer1655d ago (Edited 1655d ago )


Subjective ofcourse. Should've said "inmyopinion" =p

Agree that Bad Company 2 was delicious in terms of multiplayer, especially the destruction. But i still believe the clan system in KZ2 was so excellently implemented that it made the game so much better. The "team" vibe in a multiplayer match in KZ2 was so great. The modes were also better than Bad Company 2, in comparison they made the game that much more balanced in KZ2 than Bad Company 2.

starchild1655d ago

I have to say that I have very fond memories of playing Killzone 2 online for hours.

I can't wait to see what they have done for Killzone 4.

papashango1655d ago (Edited 1655d ago )

a clan system being the reason why a mp shooter defined a gen?

...yeaaa no

Cod4 defined MP shooter this gen. BC/BC2 opened up the genre as far as depth. Battlefield 3 ended the generation. Dayz defined how far we've come.

Killzone 2 implemented game modes that have been in place for years. sluggish controls and low fps ensured the Killzone franchise remained average this gen. A next-gen Killzone title will consist of a higher resolution, higher AA, HD textures and 60 fps. You'd be surprised at the night and day difference this would make. don't expect much else. I also doubt they shoot for 60fps.

TheGamerDood1655d ago

Good god! KZ4 running on brand spanking new PS4 hardware would be freaking mind blowing.

IAmTheBest351655d ago

killzone 4 will be a killer app? what exactly do you know about killzone 4?

MikeMyers1655d ago

This and Gran Turismo 6 would be two great titles to show off the new hardware.

BattleAxe1655d ago

I'll be picking this up day one then. Killzone 3 is still a game that I play fairly often, and its definitely one of my favorite multiplayer games this generation. I just hope the single player is a bit better this time around.

matchu_peechu1655d ago

You can admire the graphics all you want, but the idea of relism in a futuristic world is still off. Gameplay poops on itself

NewMonday1655d ago

would love to see KZ on 60FPS

LordLaguz1654d ago

I just want a Helghast single-player campaign. Those bastards are an icon, and nothing would said "Welcome to PS4" better that a quick starting cut-scene of putting on that gas mask.

"much more balanced in Killzone 2"

That has to be a joke. There's nothing balanced about Killzone 2's multiplayer. First off, there's upgrades as you level up. Meaning already more experienced players have more abilities, weapons, etc. That's pretty much the definition of unbalanced. Not to mention 1hit body shot sniper, running around at 800mph, invisibility, looking like the other team, sentry guns / turrets, etc. That multiplayer is built for fun (if you find all of that to be fun), not for balance or competitiveness. Balanced multiplayers are ones where everyone starts the match the same, no matter their level, on a mirrored map ala Resistance: Fall of Man. The only separation then is skill (or scruby 1hit gameplay) and experience.

I've platinumed Killzone 2 & 3, Resistance 2 & 3, Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3, CoD WaW MW2 MW3 Blops, Uncharted 1-3, etc.. None are perfectly balanced, a lot are far from it. Besides a couple 1hit weapons, R:FoM is (was, pretty dead nowadays) the most balanced and competitive.

EeJLP-1654d ago

I currently went back to get some MAG trophies. That's another game that would be a joke to be called balanced. A level 70 starts the match as Superman compared to a level 1. Not only is a level 70 clearly more experienced, but they can move faster, run faster and longer, have 20% more health, are more resistant to damage, have stronger and more accurate weapons, can heal faster, their knife (melee) could be stronger and faster, they can track you while not showing up on your radar, etc.

On topic, definitely intererested in PS4 (likely a day 1 buy) and KZ4.

kingmushroom1655d ago

well I'll tell you one fact, Ps4 will be announces on Feb, 20.

calis1654d ago

That's not a fact. It's a guess.

GalacticEmpire1655d ago

If this is true, it'll be a ten ton hammer for Sony to wield on launch.

Godchild10201655d ago

In order it's KZ2, KZ3 and then KZ1. I guess when the the PS4 is announced or released it will be the year of the 4 and not only the year of the PlayStation.

No matter what, I'm saving my dimes and nickels for Next Generation consoles. That is if, just half of the rumored games are coming out at launch for both consoles.

InTheLab1655d ago

I actually enjoyed the first KZ more than the rest. I loved playing as different ISA members. Going in stealthy or gunz blazin. I also thought Templar was better than Sev...and the maps were much more open than both KZ2 and KZ3.

They need to bring back player choice and the chapters in KZ4. Basically make a next gen KZ1...

ape0071655d ago

to me KZ2 will always be the best, it has that special atmosphere
