Killzone: Shadow Fall Is Ushering In A New Look For Shooters | eGamer

It may be a little unassuming and not altogether the sort of title you associate with such gravitas but Killzone: Shadow Fall is the game that will usher in the era of next-generation gaming. For the PS4 at least. Killzone has been a strong franchise on PS3 so it's no surprise that the next one is being used as a big draw-card launch title for the PS4. In fact, in a little bit of marketing creativity, Sony has put Shadow Fall on shelves in GameStop stores already so you can buy the game and then... just stare at it. Fun. Like it or not, Shadow Fall is a big game amongst the next-gen launch titles so let's see what it does to step things up. (Killzone: Shadow Fall, PS4)

Didn't like Kz1 and KZ2, didn't touch KZ3. But this? DAY ONE! Looks so good and it seems like they have fixed a lot of issues I had with older KZ games.
Plus COD and BF seem to be having shit SP.

The look, its called high definition 1080P. The textures, high resolution. AA effects, lighting and particle systems to boot. Its not the end all be all by any stretch of the imagination, but it is still the best looking FPS on consoles; life to date.

Cod and bf always had shit sp. I buy bf for the multiplayer which in my opinion is unmatched by any competitor. If you didn't like any killzone ever made I have no idea why you would even be interested in shadow fall. What exactly did they fix in this that tickles your pickle?
Vojkan  +   316d ago
it tickles my shmickle, which is part between my genitalia and anal hole.

(stupid reply to a stupid question)

yeah i relay like the art stile and graphics of this game cant diny it even a little ,but when i played the game for an hour i was realy left very dissapointed the combat was silly ,uninspired boring and not only i evry other journalist say the same thing just wait for some time we will get to know which game is worth buying on next gen.

personally I love how GG is trying not to be too much like CoD or BF with this. KZM on Vita is a great FPS too and it's on a handheld! I love the way that they allow players to make a choice to trigger happy or stealth. looks like KZSF is continuing KZM style of gameplay freedom and that's AWESOME NEWS! can't wait to play this!

4 More days!!

If you're going to the midnight launch it's only 3 more days. Wake up Thursday morning knowing that before you hit the rack a PS4 will be in your home.

Killzone Shadow Fall will be the first game I play.

will i need to have played the other KZ games fully through to understand what the SP is about? I've tried with the other KZs but they just weren't for me but i'll probably pick this game up in a sale at some point (or from PS+ when it gets there)
DaGR8JIBRALTAR  +   316d ago
You should pick it up now!
jackanderson1985  +   316d ago
ha i won't be getting the PS4 till infamous is out (none of the launch ones i'll be picking up as third parties will be xbox 1 cuz of my mates and not sold on the first parties)
SirBradders  +   316d ago
Not really its decadea after the original so its a new story only touching on the conflict they once had anew.
Rhythmattic  +   316d ago
With your History Jack, I recommend you by a PS4 first...

It won't work on an Xbox, Just as other Killzone titles.

jackanderson1985  +   316d ago
that's a great bit of info there and you know my history how exactly?

if you're referring to my comment history you must have missed the comments where i've said on numerous occassions KZ wasn't for me as i didn't enjoy it this gen and that i'm getting the PS4 when infamous is out unless you're being very selective in your comments but then again i've never once said I wasn't getting a PS4 at launch just the X1 at launch cuz that's where my friends will be gaming
Ju  +   316d ago
So you were just stealth trolling then, right?
Rhythmattic  +   316d ago
So you have stated you are getting the " X1 at launch cuz that's where my friends will be gaming"

Thats your reason. Ok.
Godhimself_In_3d  +   316d ago
Not really its 30 years later after the killzone trilogy.
brometheos  +   316d ago
I remember someone asking that question in a gamespot interview, I believe it was Herman Hulst that said you won't have to play the previous ones to understand it. Story wise they've branched off from the previous installments
mxrider2199  +   316d ago
honestly if you know ww2 you know the story the ISA is America and the Helghast are Nazis and shadowfall is after WW2 except there are still nazis aka helghasts

Game looks amazing.....

Looks Next Gen.
ambientFLIER  +   315d ago
Well that's good, since it is...
etownone  +   315d ago
Well, I tried Fifi and Knack on the PS4 at Gamestop, and both looked like current gen.... Especially Knack.... Looks like a psn download
deepio  +   316d ago
I'm still undecided between PS4 and X1 and have been trying to look hard at this game for something to draw me towards Sony's console. But, I just can't see it. Yes its pretty, but it just looks like another shooter to me. Maybe it'd be nice to see some more of the levels, so far all we've seen is the "rock and tree" levels or the building explosion from the E3 demo.
deepio  +   316d ago
Better, cheers!
sweendog  +   316d ago
Go to youtube and search 4 ways to play shadow fall. Would add a link but im on my phone
sweendog  +   316d ago
Found it. Its only 720p and 30fps but you get the idea of the gameplay

deepio  +   315d ago
That's more like it, thanks!
LeCreuset  +   316d ago
I wonder what putting the game out early has done to pre-order numbers. The already impressive pre-order figures won't represent the true launch interest in this game, since it's already on the shelves.
MasterCornholio  +   316d ago
Looks fantastic. See resolution does matter once you see a direct feed of this game.

ambientFLIER  +   315d ago
Ryse is praised by everyone who touched it as having amazing graphics and that it looks truly next gen, and yet it's 900P. Sorry, but no, resolution doesn't matter THAT much.

Game is sitting next to my tv just waiting for the ps4, it haunts me
NateCole  +   316d ago
It is upon us. Weather you are a ps or xbox gamer it is a great time after 7 long years.
MonChiChi  +   316d ago
This bad boy sits on my desk, teasing me to play it. Soon little buddy soon!
Dohv  +   316d ago
Can't wait until Friday to get this masterpiece. I'm going to be on it all Friday night.
Drekken  +   316d ago
I already told everyone looking to see what I am doing on the weekend just to forget about me for a while. I will be MIA.
baraka007  +   316d ago
