Killzone: Shadow Fall just keeps looking better and better every time that we see it – and this newly published gameplay trailer is no exception. Originally shown at E3, this Helghast-infested video has blasted its way online, eager to show off the OWL drone which will accompany you throughout the game.

And it's certainly a helpful little sidekick. It can hack enemy radio stations, provide supporting fire, create protective shields which act as portable cover, and even self-detonate, stunning Helghast soldiers and leaving them vulnerable to a deadly melee attack. We also love the way that it zips around the battlefield at your behest, guided by using the touchpad of the DualShock 4. Do you think that the OWL is a good addition to the Killzone franchise?
