New Killzone: Shadow Fall build shows improved character models

Killzone Shadow Fall has gone gold for quite a while now. We have also gotten our hands on a ultra quality multiplayer footage from the game that not only looked stunning, it also seemed to be running at 60 fps. Now it seems like the character models have also gotten an upgrade over the original unveil back at PlayStation Meeting Conference in February. (Killzone: Shadow Fall, PS4)

Nice, the Helghast outfit looks more detailed and clear.

Killzone launch bundle arriving at my front door on 11/15.

Bought a new 27" Asus monitor.

By coincidence I have a two week break before starting a new job on 12/1.

I'll say it again, can someone be my Butters and freeze me for 9 days?

lucky B@$T@&d, I have to wait until 12/13
GW212  +   751d ago
@NewMonday - I could be your Butters if you'd like. I don't really have any cryogenic experience per se but I could give it a shot. My freezer is pretty nice.

while x1 games quality goes backwards since E3, PS4 shows improvements.

This game looks amazing. Not having to worry about parity certainly is showing here.

@mewhy32 - It would appear we aren't having to worry about parity elsewhere either ;)

I just bought a new 50 inch Sony Bravia, and I don't work during the winter due to the fact that my job doesn't permit it, soo uhh yeah...midnight launch...HERE I COME!
GW212  +   751d ago
@sobekflakmonkey - that's awesome. I have a 50" Panasonic plasma that I bought a few months back. I was all excited to have that bad boy ready for the PS4 but then I read an article that my model (ST60) has terrible input lag.

After telling myself repeatedly that's the reason why my quick-twitch skills had deteriorated (and not my advancing age or declining eyesight, I hope), I decided to grab a very nice monitor with low input lag to make sure that didn't happen. Ended up getting the Asus MX279H to put in my home office. Needless to say, not much work will be getting done in said office for quite some time.

You won't have to worry about lag with that Bravia though as they are very good when it comes to that. That'll be a lot of fun. Enjoy and just remember to get some sunlight once in a while.

Im not even gonna act like I can tell a difference besides the Lighting on the face as well as color grading.

Both of them look good, but the last screenshot is confusing me Which is which?

killzone has gone gold for a while, in the meantime other developers (cod) are struggling to get their act together before the launch date

Wow, even though Ryse looks better and better every time they show it, and Forza 5 keeps getting glowing reviews from those that are playing the latest build, apparently X1 games are getting WORSE through development. Ok, troll...

They pretty much halved the polys in the character models for Ryse a little while back, and lately it was confirmed 30fps and less then 900p, so I dont know...

UltimateMaster  +   750d ago
PS4 games. Each time a news comes out, the games continues to look better than before.
Xbox One games news means some kind of downgrade, every time.
If people aren't cancelling their X1 pre-orders, they're crazier than I am.

"They pretty much halved the polys in the character models for Ryse a little while back, and lately it was confirmed 30fps and less then 900p, so I dont know...

Um, they went from 150,000 simple polygons to 85,000 polygons with much more detail on them, which made the game look BETTER. There are many comparisons proving that fact. And since when is Ryse BELOW 900P??? And when did they ever say it was going to be 60fps??

Unless you meant something else, I'm not sure why you got disagrees. It's true that Killzone 2 and 3 looked more and more improved each time they had new footage.
RevXM  +   751d ago
One aspect of Kz3 IMO changed for the worse.
Early in engine shots had more KZ2-ish colours and lighting which I fancy a lot more than the cartoonish contrasty Kz3 look. Hope it just isnt me though.

Cant deny that Shadow fall looks sweeter than ever now though.
These new screens are promising.

Whenever I pick up a ps4, SF will be the game Im getting first.
Id like to get it at launch but Im not joining the boat atleast until any solid official statements are made regarding the ps4's media features. Yoshida better make it happen or I might be on the fence for a while. Fingers crossed!

RevXM - I always hear this low drone of some ppl saying that KZ3 doesn't look good or is "worse" in some regard. Let me tell you - I still play the hell out of this game with a group on my PSN and it still looks oh so good man. C'mon stop hating on Kizzy 3! It's just as fun today as it was in 2011.

Just saying...

RevXM  +   750d ago

Not hating Kz3, was rushed made some mistakes. It is a really good game, but no one in their right mind can say it is a better game overall compared to Kz2.

And Kz2 lighting is better to me, that is all I said.

Regarding Kz3 gameplay I loved the brutal melee, sliding and overall better mobility being able to fluidily slide to vault and run over cover for example feels satisfying.

Kz SF improves a mile in this regard saw some gameplay and you really can jump to grab a ledge or anything like that and climb anything that looks like you should be able to climb.
The player jumped and grabbed on to the side of some stairs, to one of the steps and just pulled up... FREAKIN STAIRS!

Sort of. They reworked the lighting filters on KZ 2 & 3. However, character models/skins here seem to have been improved.
DoomeDx  +   751d ago

All I am seeing is different lighting. Maybe I should see this on my computer instead of my phone..

You need at least a 40in display to see the
difference kind of like 720p and 1080P...s/
Godhimself_In_3d  +   751d ago
If you have under a 50 inch shoot your self.
Utalkin2me  +   751d ago

Ideal situation for gaming is to have nothing larger then a 30", ideally a 24-27". And sit close to it.

Now movies that's a different story.

Caffo01  +   751d ago
How is it ideal? LOL
elhebbo16  +   750d ago
because pass 40 inches you start getting slower reaction times and input lag. thats why monitors are best for gaming.
Utalkin2me  +   750d ago

Well past 30" the refresh takes a big hit. Anything lower 30" i can see everything on screen without looking around the screen, just look dead center.

Of course you're not going to post why playing on a big screen is better, you just assume it is. Another videophile thinks he knows something.

Here lets do this you play on your 50" and i will play on my 27", best to 10. Then we can post results here. I have a 120", 65", 40", 27", and by far it is better to game close on my 27" plain and simple.

Thanks for the link. Though I too saw a difference but but not a improvement on my phone, your link made the comparison easier in landscape. Night and day. New build = better.

i personally like the old version better when he gets out of camo and then his eyes start to illuminate and lighten up and give off that burning ember glow around the face it gave a more cool badass dramatic effect. kinda like the before suit better also but thats what i like personally.
thehitman  +   751d ago
I actually got to agree the ember glow makes him look more badass but the new build it just looks more real life. This is where I think games try to approach realism that the artistic parts of games are diminished and doesnt look as great. The new helghast looks scary real like somebody is doing a cosplay costume. The other you can tell its a game. Which is better is all subjective I think both look amazing.
wishingW3L  +   751d ago
don't you guys think that when trying to be stealthily that the glowing eyes would be disadvantageous? Well, GG finally did something about it!

Less details? Huh, are your eyes working fine? His outfit looks way more detailed and higher def.

"You didn't notice buttons missing from some of his straps?"

Seriously? You noticed that but failed to notice the overall improved detail of the entire outfit?

HG face is better in the new build . However , the outfit depends on taste. I for one prefer dark one , it makes me more excited for killzone . Too much colours for a game like that . I'm already dreaming and imagining Killzone 5 with outstanding dark atmosphere . XP

The ISA head doesn't transition into the Helghast head as nicely in the new one. You can see the ISA helmet pop out and disappear.

Don't know why you're getting disagrees. The transition is much smoother in the old build. Lol I wish I could unsee that head now.

Pointless waiting for 4k TV as neither next gen console supports 4k gaming output. May as well buy a huge 1080p plasma from Panasonic or Samsung for your PS4. I did.

cyclindk  +   750d ago
Well from the gif... I sorta think the first (old) one was a little more visually spectacular looking than the newer one, as far as the "de-camoing" effect goes. Newer one isn't necessarily "poorer," but subtler maybe. Less contrast.

Getting proper excited now. Less than 3 weeks to go for me here in AU!!

Shadow Fall just keeps impressing. The fact that they keep improving/adding effects and detail to the game while still managing to improve the performance is testament to the ease of development with the PS4.

This is only a launch title after all, so the next batch of truly "Next Gen" games will a step up again. Just imagine what ND have in store for us?!

Well my entertainment room is prepared for this wonderful title - can't wait. This game shows the true potential of the PS4.

I guess the only negative about ps4 is that it's so hard for fanboys to find things to talk smack about against the ps4. ;p
