I’ve previously said that Killzone Shadow Fall was just about the only retail PS4 launch exclusive that I was even moderately keen to play. Thanks to some new screenshots of the game, that has changed. I’m now aching to shoot Helghan in the face in this latest from Guerrilla Games. It looks pretty damned fantastic.

Here’s a bunch of shiny new screens, showing off how the thing will look..provided these aren’t bullshots, of course. If they aren’t then I have to admit that I’m a bit impressed. Not bad for a launch game.

Check ‘em out here:

And while you’re at it, here’s the game’s newest story trailer. Those of you who are getting the Ps4 at launch; what games are you picking up?

    Looks really good. Looking forward to next-gen. Busy working through my PS3 pile of sham. The idea is finish them all before getting PS4 but don’t think that will happen.

      It does sort of, although I think Crysis had rounded environments too, not just Lego blocks.

        First Crysis was really cool, second one could have been seen as it, since very console-ified, and I cannot speak on Nr3, since I have not jammed it

            You need to revisit Crysis. Still holds up to this day. Crysis 1 is a classic, as well as it’s expansion (DLC in today’s marketing lingo), Warhead.

        If manhood is determined by whether or not you own a PS4, then yes… I will become a man! Come to think of it, that’s a better way then getting your foreskin removed… 🙁

    Graphics looks Ace, but I dunno, upgrading and unlocking new stuff is why I keep going back to multiplayer fps games. Me likely getting that new scope, the new armour etc. but in this game this doesn’t exist? Everything unlocked to all from beginning??

      I could be wrong, but I think all weapons are unlocked but attachments are not. As you get increased rank for challenges,”kill an opponent with a laser when they are carrying a beacon” you get different weapon augments. You can attach two per weapon.

    I just checked out the COD PS4 IGN feed, and here’s the problem I have with COD Ghosts, it still looks like a damn PS3 game. That’s some serious laziness, and yet… people are falling over themselves to preorder it.

    Madness!

      You clearly have never played Killzone’s MP. Killzone 2 was amazing as a MP game and Killzone 3 wrote the book on gamifying stats – everyone that followed Gears of War 3, Battlefield 3 essentially incorporated the ideas that were tested in Killzone 3. Speak to any developer on this subject and they’ll agree that Guerilla Games wrote the book on MP this gen. They’ve been that influential, and yet gamers like you… have absolutely no clue, because of a terrible case of genre myopia.

        Still disagree! Read what Yawnfest said below and checked up on it. I agree 100% that the multiplayer will become stale very soon if you have nothing to play towards! This will bore the crap out of anybody after a couple of runs!

            What I’m saying is that what he says seems to be True, no unlocks, upgrades etc. on multiplayer. That would really kill the whole multiplayer experience very quick!

            Bhahaha! Speaking of kids, you’re gonna LOVVVVVVE this. I read some more on this topic and the reason they’re doing this(no unlocks or progression etc.) is to give new and “younger” players a better chance at multiplayer, to even out the playing field!!

          • Spathi

            October 24, 2013 at 15:52

            Damn kids ruin everything!

            I read actually that it was made so that everyone can jump right in and enjoy the MP. This is good for people like me who don’t focus on the MP aspect that much.

            It really sucks to start playing MP 6 months after the rest of the players and sitting with shit weapons. I’m all for this method.

            Also, there ARE unlocks in the form of weapon attachments, different ammo and ability upgrades. So there are still cool things to unlock, but the playing field is more level, which is a good thing.

          Its challenged based. There is something to play for. You just don’t get XP for merely playing. You increase rank for completing challenges. Kill an opponent with a grenade, a melee kill, Et-cetera. There are 1500 challenges.
