Guerrilla Games' Killzone: Shadow Fall kicked off Sony's Gamescom press conference today, offering a look at the PlayStation 4 first-person shooter's multiplayer mode. In a post on the official Killzone website today, Guerrilla offers additional detail about Shadow Fall's multiplayer component, and explains that maps for those modes will be released free of charge.
Killzone's next-gen sequel will allow players to customize multiplayer in various ways, including the number of players (up to 24), game rules, mission modes, classes, abilities and weapons. Those custom game presets can then be shared with the rest of the Shadow Fall community, Guerrilla says, and the developer will continue to add new customization options through the release of expansion packs.
Killzone: Shadow Fall's progression system is also getting a revamp, Guerrila says, focusing on completing challenges — the game has more than 1500 "increasingly difficult challenges" — instead of racking up XP.
Post-launch, Guerrilla promises to support the game with free downloadable multiplayer maps.
