These New Killzone: Shadow Fall PS4 Screens Sure Deserve Your Attention

Of all the titles set to launch alongside the PlayStation 4 next month, Killzone: Shadow Fall is probably the one that you’re going to want to show to friends. The likes of Knack and even Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag have pretty graphics on the impending next generation machine, but there’s a definite ‘wow’ factor to Guerrilla Games’ impending release.

And these brand new screenshots illustrate that perfectly. There are a mix of single player and multiplayer pictures here, but they both look equally stunning. The most impressive thing is just how clean the image quality is – there are barely any of the aliasing issues that were common on the PlayStation 3.

A number of outlets recently got the chance to go hands-on with the title prior to its fast-approaching deploy date, and that’s kicked up a number of previews around the web. We’ve embedded Revision 3’s video below, not only because it includes plenty of new information – but also because there’s some slick gameplay footage for you to lust over in the process.

I really like where Guerrilla is going with Shadow Fall. The only thing that I'm concerned about his how well they do with the story because that's usually where they tend to slip-up.

I've been on the fence, but I've come to the conclusion Sony deserves the money they lose on the console.

First partying my launch console with KZ:SF.

@longshot28 welcome to the dark side.
The antialiasing is really impressive and the framerate didn't look too bad either, but I'm excited for the multiplayer most. No exp, custom everything, and expansive parameters sounds great. Reminded me of the MGO mode where everyone has stealth camo and how much fun that game was! Sounds like a lot of variety, which is so important to playability over time.

@Lelouch I might be wrong, but I think what you meant is "characters" is where they usually screw up. The reason I say that is because if you think about the basic stories and the history of the KZ it's pretty interesting...then saunters in Rico.

If they have finally eliminated this problem, they will be way ahead of the game.

Though, maybe you just dislike the basic premises, which I can respect, but don't agree with.

@Visiblemode No, the characters are tolerable and yes that includes Rico. Guerrilla never really delivers when it comes to story even though the backstory for the franchise is considered to be one of the best.

Killzone 2 did a great job when it came to the story, but then Killzone 3 came along and recycled a ton of cliché sci-fi military tropes and a pretty generic plot. I enjoyed 3, but I can admit that it was a pretty big step back from 2, luckily Shadow Fall looks like it'll clean up Killzone 3's mess.

@Lelouch Ah ok, fair enough. For me, I just hope they bring good characters. I've enjoyed every game in the series, including Pt1 and Liberation. I just hope they bring more balance into the characters to reflect the mature narrative. It's felt like they thought they had to dumb down parts of the game. Games like TLOU prove it's unnecessary, in 2013.

However, I will now, and forever occasionally be possessed to yell "Vektan scum!" at my loved ones. Some cheesier parts, I guess I'd miss.

@Visiblemode I used to love on Killzone 2 (I think it was also on 3) when you got shot down and there was a Helghast standing near you, they'd walk up to you, point down at you, and yell, "SUFFER!" and then casually walk away. It always made me giggle :P

@Grockumus LOL yeah totally. Also a classic is how Rico keeps screaming "A**hole!!!" In Killzone Liberation. It's so oddly out of place, especially in a top-down action title. Made me laugh everytime.

P.s. You're Vektan scum.

P.p.s. I mean that in the best possible way.
