game release date for PS4:
Killzone: Shadow Fall is a first installment in the Killzone series ever to be released on PlayStation 4. Like the previous installments, Shadow Fall has been developed by Guerilla Games.
The game tells the story of a conflict between two hostile factions: combative Helghast and more peaceful Vektans, who try to coexist on one planet.
The story in Killzone: Shadow Fall picks up 30 years after the events from Killzone 3. Helghast and Vektans inhabit one huge agglomeration divided by a strong wall into two separate zones. A player assumes the role of Shadow Marshal, a member of a unit tasked with maintaining the fragile peace between the two factions.
Killzone: Shadow Fall offers an open world structure and non-linear gameplay – players can choose consecutive missions at any given order, and complete them using either a stealthy or loud approach. During the game, one can use a wide variety of futuristic gadgets and abilities, which facilitate moving around the maps – featuring an enemy detecting radar, and a drone able to engage enemies in combat and defend the Shadow Marshal.
The game utilizes Guerilla Games’ proprietary technology, which delivers a world rich with details, dynamic combat and advanced lighting systems.
