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.

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.

NeoTribe905d ago

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?

Vojkan905d ago

it tickles my shmickle, which is part between my genitalia and anal hole.

(stupid reply to a stupid question)

JackISbacK905d ago

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.

badz149905d ago

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!

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.

jackanderson1985905d ago

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)

jackanderson1985905d 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)

SirBradders905d ago

Not really its decadea after the original so its a new story only touching on the conflict they once had anew.

Rhythmattic905d ago (Edited 905d ago )

With your History Jack, I recommend you by a PS4 first...

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

jackanderson1985905d 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

Ju905d ago

So you were just stealth trolling then, right?

Rhythmattic905d 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_3d905d ago

Not really its 30 years later after the killzone trilogy.

brometheos905d 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

mxrider2199905d 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.

ambientFLIER905d ago

Well that's good, since it is...

etownone905d 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

deepio905d 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.

sweendog905d ago

Go to youtube and search 4 ways to play shadow fall. Would add a link but im on my phone

sweendog905d ago
