Killzone: Shadow Fall: Single Player 60fps Gameplay [Offscreen]

Gamersyde: The Paris Games Week just opened its doors this morning, welcoming those who had spent the night waiting in line hoping to get one of the 500 Prestige Edition packs promised by Activision for the first visitors of the Call of Duty: Ghosts booth. Though it was pretty interesting to study the human condition and see those guys packed like cattle in the middle of the night, one of the real highlights of our evening there yesterday was our first hands-on session with Killzone: Shadow Fall.

So the frame rate varies between 60 and 30 in single player, while being 1080p native and undoubtedly being the best looking console game of 2013.

Nice job on your first PS4 game, Guerrilla. Imagine they would have had more time with it.

I have to agree, while battlefield is very impressive, I do think KZ:SF is visually the game to beat for me...

Themba761663d ago

i bought both ill find out on the 15'th

MWong1662d ago (Edited 1662d ago )

Same here, I bought both BF4 & KZ:SF. KZ will have BF4 beat in resolution for native resolution KZ is 1080p in both SP & MP. While I think BF4 is 1080p SP & 900p MP. But, nonetheless both look amazing.

mewhy321662d ago

BF4 is impressive but let's be honest. Shadowfall is a much better looking game, and actually has a story.

NewMonday1662d ago (Edited 1662d ago )

Gamersyde are great, download the video for best results

everything is coming together for Killzone, best graphics, MP is tight, SP is non-liner

nukeitall1662d ago

KZ Shadowfall is shaping up to be a pretty good graphical game.

Just crossing my fingers they will do something about the shoddy P2P multiplayer and hope they add dedicated servers.

Mister_Dawg1662d ago

I cannot deny this looks good. The frame rate looked quite smooth. But there was nothing in that video that looked very taxing for the console. It is very angular and not a huge amount of variation in the action. Now if that wider city was actually real, then I'd been blown away. Then that would be real next-gen.

Anyway, BF4 has way too much going on in the game for KZ to be really comparable.

GiantEnemyCrab1662d ago

Scott: KZ:SF does not have true dedicated servers

"Killzone Shadow Fall has dedicated servers hosted in various regions around the world. These servers do not run the logic of the game – they only act as a hub between the clients."

This is matchmaking the game code is still P2P.

scott1821662d ago (Edited 1662d ago )

It's dedicated server-based for match making, game handling, stat tracking and so on. During combat a lot of data is also communicated P2P using a host player with the top connection, allowing everyone to play without issue.

I don't know why anyone would be concerned about dedicated servers or cloud services in the first place via PS4 with Openstack and Gaikai being implemented, on top of these servers Sony already has.

Wait I thought single player was locked or unlocked at 30fps so it would like reach 45 or something... since when was it 60?! Fantastic news if true though :o

Enemy1663d ago

"Contrary to what I thought the single player mode isn't locked to 30 but varies from 30 to 60, so I've encoded a 60 fps version of the video!"

Kleptic1663d ago

its doing the same thing Knack is trying, apparently...60fps as much as possible, but then down to 30fps if need be...with v-sync enabled for, its never in between i guess, its either 60 or 30...preferably briefly on the 30 part...

boing11662d ago

Wasn't God of War 3 doing something similiar?

Loki861663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

Definitely not the best looking launch game. Watching a compressed version of an old build. Yeah take that serious.

This game does look gorgeous though.

reko1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

day one!!


i meant ill get it day one when it comes out and you lucky sob i get mine on the 15 :\ lol

Sharingan_no_Kakashi1663d ago

Day One?

Lol it's Day -16 for a lot of people. Get mine tomorrow.

Campy da Camper1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

Agreed. I can only imagine what their games will look like in a couple years. People go back and forth on the console war but my stance is simple: I buy the system that has Naughty Dog, Suckerpunch, GG, Media Molecule and Sony Santa Monica games. End of story.

UncleGermrod1663d ago

I get that. I really dont pick up the media molecule games or love KZ that much tho. KZ SF looks nutty tho. Deff getting a ps4 in time for second son. this will be the first time i have both major consoles so early. deff great exclusives on sony's end

DrJones1662d ago

Media Molecule. Agreed.

ssj271663d ago

Killzone Shadow Fall is the game to get for next gen consoles indeed!
glad to see good pre order numbers for it.. it will be the best sold Killzone ever and well deserved!

I can't wait to see what's their new ip all about, if they did this game in so little time a great launch game, their next game will have more time and better tech, it will be amazing..

starchild1663d ago

30 to 60fps? That means it will have a horrible stuttery framerate. They should have just locked it down to a solid 30fps.

Enemy1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

Find a single Killzone: Shadow Fall preview that backs up your biased claim about "horrible stuttering frame rate". If you can't, then you know it's time to stop posting. (spoiler: you won't)

The God of War games are known for their super smooth frame rate, and guess what? They're variable 30-60. The more you know.

You could also bet Battlefield 4 isn't locked at 60fps either.

Am_Ryder1663d ago

That's... Not how it works.

Saviour1663d ago

@Enemy- super smooth?lol. have u ever played a game @120fps on pc? 60fps is where smoothness starts. u cant call a game "super" when it varies between 30-60.

tagan8tr1662d ago

Enemy that was freekin funny ( won't) good suff..

I hope they add a multiplayer option for hostage rescue type missions, similar to counter strike. I think it would work so well with this game.

You can't teach an old dog new tricks...

mistertwoturbo1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

I cancelled my BF4 PS4 pre-order and will be getting this instead. The gameplay reminds me a lot of KZ: Merc which I had a lot of fun with.

SharnOfTheDEAD1663d ago

Great looking game and that TV, beautiful image quality!

KiLLUMiNATi_891663d ago

Yea imagine prolly avatar graphics, that GDDR5 shows the RAW POWER... Praise praise

ambientFLIER1662d ago (Edited 1662d ago )

There are gaming pcs five times more powerful than the ps4 and their graphics don't come close to avatar. you sony fanboys are off the charts with this garbage!

oh, and ram has much less effect on graphics than the gpu...

tagan8tr1662d ago

so where does that leave xbone if they have the lesser gpu and lesser speed ram ambientFLIER?

Visiblemarc1662d ago

I think Avatar-level is hyperbole designed to indicate a level of enthusiam. To keep comparing these consoles to super high end PCs like ambiendFLIER is doing is baffling. It's the same as comparing a 40k sports car to a (lower powered) 50k sports car in a conversation and some guy spits out his drink to tell you how lame they are compared to a 300k Ferrari. Further he insists non-stop that if you cared at all about cars or driving you'd own a Ferrari and insist that comparing the mainstream cars is a huge waste of time. It makes no sense.

ambientFLIER1662d ago

tagan8tr -

Where does it leave the xbox? Um...less powerful than the PS4. I never claimed otherwise. Nice change of subject compared to what my original comment was...

starchild1662d ago

@ Visiblemark

No, you're the one that doesn't make sense.

First of all, your implication that a gaming PC costs over 7 times more than the PS4 is a load of crap. In reality we are talking about a $400 machine (PS4), a $500 machine (XB1) and maybe a $600 or $700 machine (gaming PC). The latter of which does a thousand things the other two don't, while also giving far better performance and graphics in games, and a whole host of other advantages for gaming as well.

The other absurdity in your comment is that you are trying to equate expensive cars (most people don't even own cars worth 40k or 50k) to gaming platforms. Your analogy falls flat on its face because nearly everybody can afford a console or gaming PC.

If you can afford a $400 or $500 gaming console and $50 a year to play online you can definitely save up another $200 to get a gaming PC that doesn't require you to spend $50 a year to play your games online and that has all kinds of other uses in your life.

You fanboys are truly irrational and absurd in your attempts to rationalize your bashing of the XB1 and your dismissal of the PC.

GG ain't joking!
this game is mindblowing

Belking1662d ago (Edited 1662d ago )

Dude the game isnt 60 fps in SP. When are you guys gonna learn that rises and drops in frame rate is worse than a steady framerate. A steady 30fps KZ is better than one that goes up and down. Its the same game it's always been so please stop acting like they have broken new grown with only 2 weeks before release. They finished developing this games months ago. What you saw last is what youll get. The game is only 30fps in SP.

GW2121662d ago

Serious question: You think this looks better than BF4?

I think they both look awesome and I'll be getting both on day 1 but, from what I've seen over the last couple days, I think BF4 looks a little better. It's all opinion and maybe I'm not looking at the right links or something, am just curious as to why you think this is superior.

larrysdirtydrawss1662d ago


HardcoreDaBoss1662d ago

killzone does look amazing. heres the games Im looking forward to.. killzone, bayonetta 2, X, new mario 3d, zelda, titanfall, battlefield, smash bros, mario kart... monster hunter 4.. I get all the exclusives lol.. no fangirl here.. just imagine the kool aid man saying OHHHHH YEAAAH..

TAURUS-5551662d ago

GiantEnemyCrab1662d ago

It looks great! But I don't agree with the best looking comment.

joseph11111662d ago

I absolutely loved kz on PS3. These next two weeks are going to go by at a snails pace.... I am purchasing both systems but to be honest I am more excited about the PS4 this gen. It is a great time to be a gamer!

Variable 60fps on Single Player!!! PS4 baby! I just picked up KZ:SF... The wait is killing me to play it now that I have it. The PS4 and Nov 15th Need to hurry and get here already

Bruce_Wayne1663d ago

Did you unwrap the game? 0:

Sevir1663d ago

Lol, I have it but if I open it I'll die with sheer anticipation... Can't wait for it

LonDonE1662d ago

did u open it and smell the manual? mmmmmmmmm i get stiff some times when i smell the manual, and boy i love to smell that new electric smell of my consoles after i have used it for s few hours, nose firmly on the vents mmmmmmmm is it strange i get off on this?? lol

showtimefolks1663d ago

can't wait to play an story that's actually gonna be good and 10 plus hours long instead if 4hours crap in BF4

Sevir1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

I just saw the footage, it looks glorious, but the guy playing was a complete noob. Still I'm convinced on Consoles this is the best looking game of 2013, You can see how much the texture quality has gone up from the FEB 20 reveal. I cant believe this is a first launch day game!

sigfredod1663d ago

really good looking footage, unlike youtube ones, and the best part is not in full hd so it will look even better on my tv

Sevir1663d ago

Totally! Can't wait for it!

ACwarMACHINE1663d ago

why do all the bad guys in this game look like a possessed garfield the cat?

ABeastNamedTariq1663d ago

You're getting me hyped with excitement! STAHP

Lol in all seriousness, they're looking pretty varied. I likes it!

Outside_ofthe_Box1663d ago


The Black Hand Helghasts will forever look like a possessed Garfield cat to me now!

I can't unsee it.

Thank you very much -_-

SilentNegotiator1663d ago

Now I will be incredibly disappointed if there aren't any characters that look vaguely like Jon or Odie.

Blackdeath_6631662d ago

i don't i've heard this thing about a helghan looking like a cat before but i still can't see it probably for the better

wenaldy1663d ago

Damn you, what has been seen, cannot be unseen!!!
