Killzone: Shadow Fall video focuses on PS4 development

Thursday, 30th May 2013 15:00 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Killzone: Shadow Fall has a new developer diary available, and we’ve posted it below.

In it, technical director Michiel van der Leeuw notes the game can be played while it’s downloading – one of the features touted by Sony during the console’s reveal.

The first level and the menu is all it takes to start playing, and the second level is downloading in the background as you shoot things.

This is just the latest in Sony’s “Conversations with creators” series, in which developers discuss creating games for PS4.

Other entries in the series include Diablo 3 and Watch Dogs among others.

Killzone: Shadow Fall was announced during the PS4 reveal in February and is a launch title for the console.

    @Francis No one cares for your sarcasm you annoying Nintendo loyalist, go back to your massive arrays of Nintendo games because soon thats all you will have.
    My point: Visually impressive Killzone game that looks to right the wrongs of Killzone 3 and has an interesting plot point with the Shadow Marshal keeping the peace between VSA and Helghast divided by a wall, excellent.

    I certainly can’t wait to play Shadow Fall. I hope this time, there’s more use of piloted and autonomous vehicles.

    I’m most certainly not being sarcastic. Shadow Fall seems like a day one purchase for me.

    @17: Yup, loved that sequence where you pilot that small mech across those ice islands.

    Depends on when I get a PS4, but I’ll definitely get around to playing. It’s always exiting to play the early games of the new generation. I don’t have a high-end PC so haven’t quite seen the next-gen graphics of Battlefield 3 and Witcher 2.

    No game has to reinvent the wheel to me, just has to be some good fun. I’m just here hoping it is!

    That’s quite a typo. You said that to yourself and to the guy after you who hadn’t posted yet. :)
