Killzone: Shadow Fall review: stalemate

There's some grasping in Killzone: Shadow Fall's premise toward higher social commentary and exploration of real world political drama, particularly the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. There are also strong echoes of the post-WWII socialist/capitalist divide of East and West Germany during the '70s in the sorts of maneuvering and secret police actions of both the ISA and the Helghast. Somewhere in all of this, there must have been a story worth telling, and like shafts of light in a ruined building, these bits occasionally shine through. But more often than not, they're buried in muddy shades of grey. Killzone has always flirted and later actively courted an early-20th century sort of nihilism with regards to humanity's predilections to endless, aimless war. Shadow...

Killzone: Shadow Fall adds King of the Hill game mode

King of the Hill multiplayer options have been added to Guerrilla Games' first-person shooter Killzone: Shadow Fall, community management intern Stefan Satchkov announced via the game's website. King of the Hill Warzone supports up to 16 players in matches that feature shorter respawn times and an upped point limit; players must now have 250 points, rather than 100, to capture an area. The new game mode also includes collectible crates and is available on all maps. "This new addition aims to create chaos," Satchkov wrote. "The fast-paced action will prove challenging, but shouldn't deter all you challengers to the throne. The constant shift of battle locations will keep you on your edge and bring out the best in your game." Killzone: Shadow Fall launched for PlayStation 4 last year....

Killzone: Shadow Fall's first multiplayer expansion hits in April

The first expansion for Killzone: Shadow Fall's multiplayer component is called the Insurgent Pack, and it will be available in April for $9.99, developer Guerrilla Games announced today. Headlining the add-on is a new class, The Insurgent. It starts with nothing more than a pistol, but is equipped with two special talents, Steal and Hack. The former allows it to pilfer opponents' bodies for weapons and abilities that are usable throughout that multiplayer match (even after respawning). The latter allows Insurgents to turn enemy ground automata to their side. The Insurgent Pack also adds three new abilities to the Scout, Support and Assault classes: E-Pulse emitter, Tactical Echo emitter and Guard Drone. Three additional weapons are included as well: the M82 assault rifle from K...

Catch a glimpse of Killzone: Shadow Fall's first two DLC maps

Killzone: Shadow Fall's first downloadable maps are called The Cruiser and The Hangar, and developer Guerrilla Games showed them off today with one piece of concept art each. Like all of Shadow Fall's map DLC, The Cruiser and The Hangar will be available free. Both maps are inspired by important areas of the Shadow Fall campaign, according to Guerrilla. The Cruiser, which you can see above (full image below), offers close-quarters and mid-range combat inside an ISA cruiser that's no longer in service. On the other hand, The Hangar takes place in a massive, well, hangar at a mining site on Helghan, and the wide-open map is a sniper's haven. Guerrilla did not provide a release date for the maps. The studio is also working on the first downloadable expansion for Shadow Fall's...
