What fine films for inspiration. Im guessing the Helghast setting/slums will be inspired by the streets from Blade Runner. Not sure about Alien though....

Lukas, maybe the Aliens influence is the tension. If it looks this good, I want these guys to make a game in the Bladerunner universe, but I think that would be hard because I believe BladeRunner is a copyright nightmare... Could not do the the recent HD releases till I think turnbull died, but its still a tangle of BS...

Edit: Highres, its one of those movies you will love forever, or wonder WTF was that?? I think it still stands up to todays quality.. Got it on VHS, DVD, BluRay, and HDDVD!!! My wife thinks I am mad as well...

A Blade Runner game could be amazing, although Cyberpunk 2077 by CD Projekt could suffice in the meantime.

Anyway, Guerrilla is doing another IP right now but I doubt it's going to be sci-fi. Might be a fantasy RPG (just a guess).

(alien mechs/environments)
(killzone mechs and atmospheres.)

I guess some of the sci fi structures, enviroments, ambience and whatnot from Killzone are kinda reminiscent of parts of the alien movies.

Clearly the team at GG put a lot of their own unique ideas into the mix as well though.

Don't really remember Bladerunner so really looking foward to watching it.

Bladerunner is my favorite film of all time, i absolutly love the neon noir look of Los Angles.

KZ:SF is a stunning game, cant wait for it.

HighResHero1845d ago (Edited 1845d ago )

Yes and I can't wait to play KZ either, so I'm picking it up for the Vita for now.

Bladerunner's style is so powerful that I remember it even though I don't think I've ever seen the whole movie.

Looks like I'm in for a treat when I watch the whole thing.

@ps4beaver: Thanks and I will probably appreciate most of its' bizarre content.

Watch it as soon as possible mate, it's a damn masterpiece.

HighResHero1845d ago

Will do, I've been meaning to actually watch the whole thing for quite a while.
