Killzone: Shadow Fall Announced for PlayStation 4

Steven writes: "It has been an amazing journey for us so far, being offered the opportunity to be a launch title for the new PlayStation, and the subsequent mild panic to figure out how to best handle all of that." (Killzone: Shadow Fall, PS4)

LOL - they are on Vekta - Helghan rebels are infiltrating. Looks amazing.
SuperLupe  +   1083d ago
To be honest it looked good but ... doesnt seem next gen impressive like. Maybe its just te quality of the vid but I wasnt blown away like KZ2 reveal blew me away. Or maybe its the fact that it just looked like another great graphics shooter.

I know its the 1st PS4 games but for the moment It's a bit underwhelming.

THe most impressive of the first 4 reveals was the new Infamous.

EDIT: to be honest Im going to bed, its 01:20 AM overhere (Paris) and Im just too tired, cant take it anymore lol. I hope when I wake up at 7am I'll see that Sony dropped some megatons (new FF game, Agent, GT5, whatever :) )

those graphics look ok still not up to par with crysis 3 like I said. now I have seen enough of the ps4 already to know that I will be picking one up day one but there is no big graphics leap and you people need to be real.

I like the continuation of the story now on a brighter planet. It will showcase the new lighting the system is capable of.

I cant help but think if the same results could be done on the existing ps3 though. Maybe the finer details not so much but the lighting and bloom effects almost seem possible.

Either way, ps4 will be in my collection once it launches as will this game.
AlphaJunk  +   1083d ago
Looks great! C'mon, I at least expected a PS4 Killzone to be that big of a graphical jump considering the PS3 is almost 7 years old and the PS4 is no doubt of much better design and approach for developers to harness it's power.

The unreal engine guys are gushing over the new hardware & 8GB of ram on GT right now. lol Also the demo was running in real time. :O

I think it looked ok. I mean i think Driveclub was more impressive graphically.

I will openly admit I am a PC gamer and at the risk of taking a serious bashing in the middle of a PS4 loving frenzy, Killzone SF doesn't really look better than a nice looking PC shooter around now, like BF3 on ultra, or Metro 2033 maxed, or Crysis 2/3 maxed on PC. In other words it doesn't blow away existing PC titles on good PC hardware.

I saw the stream and watched the facebook video now too for better quality.

That is to say yeah it looks quite pretty, but my mind wasn't exactly blown like the first time I saw Elder Scrolls Oblivion or Gears of war. I am conditioned to that sort of ballpark of visuals already on PC.

There is still so much time to improve on the quality however, i mean it is still at an early stage no doubt. Driveclub really impressed me the most, because the car models are up there with Project CARS, and that isn't technically completed either until late this year.

In that game it certainly seemed like it would be a better match for what PC can do now.

In the meantime I am sure Guerrilla games are beavering away with the hardware probably final hardware and extracting as much from it as they can.

The Helgan didn't just infiltrate Vekta. See the wall at the end? This was a divided city (and he mentioned Berlin). The "wall" is what divides the city why he had to jump of to not end up on the Helgan side. Also the - what are they called - those drones at the end were Helgan.

Interesting conflict. Vektans and Helgans on their home planet. Can be after KZ3 or before. Either before they kicked out are after they came back. Looks more like after KZ2 when they started the invasion in Vekta (same Vektan base ships).

People say that this is not a graphics leap need to get their eyes checked. You must have impaired vision. Are you guys for real?

BTW: notice all the reflections and transparency in that scene? That's just f..cking expensive to do. This is a massive leap.

Did i have a shitty stream or just didn't play KZ3 in a while? Shadowfall looks great but not that much better than KZ3 to me. All the games were good looking but only a little better than PS3 graphics in my opinion. I was more impressed with the size of the games and gameplay. To me it looks like they will focus more on gameplay than graphics. The demo of the old man's head was awesome but i wouldn't expect that for a few years until developers get used to ps4. New features were awesome tho, but unfortunately somethings probably will never come true like with ps3 reveal.

Once again consoles pushing pc's. Things change and Windows is now holding back the pc because of optimization. Unbelievable. graphics resolution isn't everything if it's a plugged pixel without added detail.

I know its not kill zone but did they fucking change cole(infamous) again!!

Doomedx-Good cole died but if you watch the credits his casket is struck by lightning on the boat.
Also evil turned into the beast and has the ability to give people powers now & travel to different deminsions(good Coles). Going back to the first game where the beast just suddenly appeared.

I think the guy on stage said cole should get the best entrance award aswell.

showtimefolks  +   1083d ago
and i was told don't expect a big jump in Graphics

sony is showing E3 level conference 3-4 months before E3 so really can't wait to see what they will do for encore


i am glad they didn't totally overlook the fact Cole dies in Infamous 2 so i am very excited

newer hero means newer powers so look at the positives, we played with cole's powers for 2 games now something new

Just_The_Truth  +   1083d ago
Cole didn't die and they never completed Coles story. If you look at the first game evil cole invades good Coles world and that's way Kessler goes back in time etc. etc. ill be annoyed if they throw that history out the window. The least they can do is reference it in the new game if that is a new protagonist.

I just read a comment that suggested it was Coles brother. I guess he was mentioned in the second game but I don't remember. It would explain why he seem to have the same powers in a way. Plus evil cole is just handy out powers so we'll see.

we know next to nothing about story and character

maybe its still cole
maybe its a prequel or sequel
maybe its set in infamous world under a different character
maybe its infamous story from a different prospective

so i am glad sony is showing so much yet we still don't know a lot of these games. I am glad Infamous series continue, its one of my favorite

Lol and Crytek was crying about how they are the "Greatestz graphicz creatorsz evur!!" Haha, enjoy that humble pie, Crytek.
Conzul  +   1083d ago
It's pretty obvious that the "Second Son" is Cole's brother. He's only mentioned once in the series.

If I recall correctly, it's in inFamous 2, the evil mission when you get Nix her new pets. She asks Cole if he has any family, and he reveals that he has a brother that he hasn't kept up with.
Ju  +   1083d ago
I mean "First Son" certainly points to a new generation. Cole being the first (and original) generation. He basically created himself - by accident; and is the creator of a new evolution, with this new guy being the "First Son". Does this make too much sense for you guys? Shouldn't be that hard to figure out.

Is this Killzone 4...because not getting to find out who came out of the pod at the end of Killzone 3 is going to tick me off
r21  +   1083d ago
Hopefully we get some clarification on that. Im guessing this take place years after KZ3 with the Vektans thinking the Helghans were all dead. Now in this game, its their turn to attack and surprise the ISA.
Ju  +   1083d ago
My best guess it's between KZ2 and 3. KZ3's story ends on the Helgast planet which basically got abandoned by the Helgast when they left their homeworld after KZ2 to invade Vekta. So, my best guess is, they made it back but didn't quite "conquer" the whole world; so they got parts of it but not all (see the "divided city" - which sure wasn't the case in KZ2 - there were no Helgast on Vekta. And in KZ1 the tech was not that advanced - in KZ1 Vektans won the war and the Helgast flew into exil).

Snookies12  +   1083d ago
It's not really his fault, some people honestly can't tell differences in visuals past a certain point. First off my friend, this is nowhere near full resolution. Meaning you cannot even comprehend what it looks like in full HD. Second, did you not see the tech demo of the million little blue thingies dropping down on a town? Do you understand how amazing that is to see live and without any sort of slowdown? Just how much can be done with this new hardware? These are also only PREVIEWS. They're not even full games yet, and to make things even better, they're FIRST GEN PS4 titles. Meaning years down the road, they'll only get better and better looking.

Graphically, I don't even think my gaming rig that cost me $1,300 US Dollars would be able to play these games at high settings (much less max). The minimal leap in graphics as you call it, is a quantum leap over what the PS3 and 360 were capable of within their first 4-5 years of being available.
