The next Killzone is for the next generation.

Guerrilla Games’ next game is Killzone: Shadow Fall for PlayStation 4, a sequel set thirty years after the events of Killzone 3.

“The world is a very different place,” said senior producer Steven Ter Heide. “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.”

A live demo was shown on stage at PlayStation Meeting 2013 in New York City tonight. Watch that footage, as well as the first trailer, below.

Gameplay

  • ShinAsura

    Really enjoyed the mp in 3, I’ll get this

    Gameplay added!

    I wants it, a bit bummed they announced this though. It’ll take away the shine of Mercenary a bit.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Yea, that’s what I was thinking. Knowing Sony though, they’ll probably take this opportunity to cross-promo them during Holiday time. For the people who won’t have gotten Mercenary yet, they’ll probably offer a bundle with this for cheaper. That could work. Capitalize on the hype for this and sell some copies of that like a companion piece.

  • Prodigy-X

    The graphics were just jaw dropping. Gameplay looked amazing.

    • KurisuMakise

      My sentiments exactly. I also loved the IQ, was really good, soft too.

    • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

      And this is probably a launch window title. Just imagine how 1st party PS4 games will look like 5 years from now.

      • Prodigy-X

        Oh God, just imagine Uncharted but I got a feeling that Uncharted 4 is going to be revealed for PS4 at the VGA’s 2013.

          I’m hoping for a new Uncharted at e3. I’d also take another new IP from the other Naughty Dog team as well.

          • Prodigy-X

            My worry is if they announce it at E3 and Killzone Shadow Fall is launch title then Uncharted may steal Killzone Shadow Fall spotlight. Remember Killzone 2 & 3 never reach the hype of Halo and with this New Killzone it can, just as long as they advertise it and push it as their main big launch title this holiday if it is available at launch.

            • http://gematsu.com/ Zero

              How about they bundle Shadow Fall with the PS4? That would be a pretty awesome game to get with the console.

              • Prodigy-X

                My guess is the premium model will be bundle with it at launch for $499 with something else while the basic model will be $399. Just Sony has to advertise it a lot so people could become aware of it.

        • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

          I certainly hope the Uncharted team does concoct some new IP for PS4. Give Nate and co some well deserved rest. With all the knowledge ND acquired by perfecting the franchise they could blow us away just like the Last of Us, which quite frankly already looks like a first gen PS4 title.

          • Prodigy-X

            We’ll will see either at E3 2013 or the VGA’s 2013.

  • GetOffMy_Lawn

    I don’t really go for FPS’s, but this really caught my attention today.
    Never played Killzone before, but judging from this gameplay video, it looks like I may be missing out.

    Added screenshots, video, it’s all there now.

  • Leon Kiwi

    For a second there the hooded enemy (before their mask lights up) looked like the assassin’s creed dude.

  • PrinceHeir

    i hope it’s not gearboxed :P

    After games look photorealistic, and the technology to produce photorealistic graphics becomes affordable and easy to use, the only thing left will be making games look UNrealistic. Games that look like animation, or oil paintings, or sumi-e.

    Or maybe fully 3D holographic projections?

    uncanny valley, scary, nay?!

    that makes two of us =)
