Fresh off appearing in the new Conversations With Creators video, Steven ter Heide, Game Director on Killzone: Shadow Fall, answered a bunch of different fan questions. - PSLS
I've always thought the universe was really cool, even if the plots weren't always that great.
The Killzone Trilogy as a whole is among the best war stories in gaming.
i'll not go that far because i wasn't impressed by KZ3's story i thought it was very boring. There was nothing about the characters personalities and who they really are, just go straight kill helghasts go straight kill some more and a last ridiculous "battle" against a big spider robot. meh... i was really expecting more than what i got. But the graphics are on fire, 3D is good and move support is flawless and multiplayer was good but waaaaay below KZ2's. Now i am looking forward to KZ: SF and i am hoping for some wow moments and an interesting story. I hope they deliver and dig deeper into characters stories and their relations with each other, and most of all, BRING BACK THE COLLECTIBLE ITEMS and the Helghast medals to find!!!!
Suprise us with the story huh...Why does it have a dog companion in it? I'm very excited for this game. Just hope they take more of a KZ2 multiplayer approach.
Helghan dogs > Ghost dogs with bombs on their back.
'Anything that looks climbable will be.' Ok, so now I'm really interested ...
I'm gonna climb me some helghan
i wonder if it will be a similar system to Brink: http://www.youtube.com/watc... I cant wait to play me some new killzone
Yea I was pretty pumped when I saw it in their reveal trailer when he was going around to flank the enemy, I just automatically assumed we'd be able to climb pretty much anything around that height after that. Glad to hear confirmation
Even small walls? That's impossible! According to COD: Ghosts, only they have done such innovative features!
Great story + great gameplay + great graphics = 1 killer PS4 launch game.
For me, it's a killer game simply because it has ' Killzone ' on the title. =)
Anyone know if we'll see any mention of the people from KZ3? Sevchenko, Rico, Jammer, Johan Stahl? Any word on that yet? o_-
Can't wait. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-l...
I've always enjoyed the series and I can't wait to play this on the PS4.
Could go down as a major classic this.... Can't wait.
I am so eager to play this game.
kz3 made me hate the isa. can i play as the good guys now?
I hope that's what there refuring to, you finally get to play on the Helgust Soldier side!!
that's a misconception. There are no good guys in Killzone. What happened to the Helghast was just as much the fault of their own hubris as it was the greed of UCN. The ISA really were just caught in the cross fire between them. And the Helghan attacked the ISA first lets not forget. But yea it's high time we got to play as the Helghast.
your killzone history is so wrong. isa are the bad guys, period. anyone who played kz1 can confirmed, but most on here just started with kz2.
play a section as the helghast?
i reckon you will play half the game as a Helghast. i hope so. This and Infamous second son are definite buy's for me.
They will most certainly deliver. I receive tweets from Steven Ter Heide. (Game director of killzoneSF) we are going to be in for a next gen leap In quality thanks to the guys at gurilla.
God people are talking so much about used games. When all I see is Killzone SF, Watch Dogs, etc... MGS5, etc. So looking forward to next Gen no matter what. and disagree's I could care less about.
I hope its a campaign where the Helghast are the protagonist.
As long as they don't release a story trailer like they did with Killzone 3 in the case that the story should be one-sided or just bad again. I cringed all the way through it and never bought the game because the story seemed melodramatic and one-sided.
After Killzone 3's so-so campaign, it will definitely be a suprise if the story is good in this one.
At least they think they got something right other than graphics, the game play looks so boring and uninspired.
-__- You must be very hard to please.
Really, you beg to differ? What happened to revolutionizing gaming? Please stop being blind and think for the gaming industry as a whole. Take The Last Of Us for example it's a semi open-world game, the single-player campaign can be played 4 times and get different out comes each playthrough. The game has a better A.I than all the next gen games that has been announced, in fact the A.I is the most intelligent A.I in the gaming industry. And the melee seems more powerful, each punch has it's own weight, and the amount of animations thrown in are greater. I just wish KillZone: Shadow Fall could at least come close.
You should go check up the previous 2 killzone games now because GG do have graphics, effects, physics systems like no other and awesome AI. Each bullet makes a unique impact depending on, speed, angle, velocity, weight and where it hits. The red propane tanks in that first warehouse for example are not scripted in any way you shot one and the angle and where you hit it, and the surface it goes against and random debris will affect its course of flight. Weighty characters and weapons are the result of a clever physics/animation blending system. AI, the HIGS are clever and can be difficult to read at times as they are less predictable than a hell lot of other game AI. Its their way of countering situations and react to the player, the world and other AI, friendly or foe. Friendly AI is not very impressive as far as KZ2 goes. GG reinvented the FPS for me. KZ2 hands down most immersive game Ive played to date thanks to the Physics, graphics and AI. Even the glowing hot particles shooting of from a cooling bulletmark bouncing around of off surfaces... GG have an attention to detail that is simply incredible. http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... AND http://www.youtube.com/watc...
the thing they never got right with killzone was the story. It was just straight generic, and i understand most shooters are generic with the base story but how a dev goes inside that base story is what makes good games into great games. here's hoping they come through.
Well the storyline bar was set pretty low with the other Killzone games, so hopefully he's telling the truth. I really enjoyed KZ 2+3, but the story was lackluster to say the least. Some interesting, and less annoying, characters would be nice. The only characters I liked in KZ2 and 3 were the 'bad' guys, every time Rico was around I hoped he'd have a tragic death.
idk why but i want screenshots of the current build they have. video is nice but i want screenshots.
Helghast campaign...Amazing.....I'l l buy 10 copies. Of course all new. =) No Helghast campaign...no buy....=(
The storyline is okay but its the dry ass characters and lacking emotion that really detracts from Killzone. You really have no sense of attachment or anticipation as you progress towards the game. There is no intriguing mysteries to be discovered. Just typical shooter fare with a main antagonist and his minions.
I hope it does. The KZ universe is interesting to me but the story in KZ 1/2 leave much to be desired. The voice acting was cheesy to me and the main protagonist(Sev) is uninteresting to me. But I still love me some Killzone(gameplay/graphics) and this will definitively be a day one purchase for my PS4.
If anything, length. I was disappointed in the KZ3 campaign length, took me just over 4 hours. The MP was really cool though, considering the power in the PS4 making the KZ multiplayer even bigger would be great. Just go a little closer to how KZ2 was doing things though, that MP was fantastic.
They really should explore more of the Killzone lore. There's so much content there, it's bizarre that GG choose to only focus on bits and pieces of the Killzone universe instead of really opening things up.
Yes let's hope the story has more to it this time. Love the combat and LOVE the new colorful sections of space I've seen
I'm a Killzone fanatic. I'm eagerly anticipating this game
