The Helghast are back. Again.
In news that probably won’t surprise some of you, Guerrilla Games showed up at the Playstation 4 announcement conference with an announcement of their own. A new Killzone game is in the works for the PS4.
Killzone Shadow Fall was introduced by it’s Director, Steven ter Heide. His release says:
Today we are happy we can finally show you what we have been working on.
It has been an amazing journey for us so far, being offered the opportunity to be a launch title for the new PlayStation, and the subsequent mild panic to figure out how to best handle all of that.
But being able to now share it with you is both a scary and proud moment. We are hoping you will like what we have created, and are happy to present you with the first glimpse of Killzone Shadow Fall.
The piece of live gameplay we presented at the PlayStation Meeting shows you a new world, a new situation and a new hero.
The game is set in a near future, thirty years after the events of Killzone 3. The world is a very different place; two rival factions known as the Helghast and the Vektans live side by side in a futuristic city, divided by a vast wall.
Tensions are high, and the cold war they are embroiled in is about to go hot. In the midst of this all stands a Shadow Marshal, you. The most special of the special forces, tasked with maintaining the delicate balance.
From responding to bold attacks, to quiet infiltrations or all out combat, you will be required to adapt and think on your feet as you have to face a variety of escalating events that could destroy your home world.
We are looking forward to sharing some more of the exciting events and features that we have been working on. Keep your eyes out for more news soon.
