Play Killzone: Shadow Fall for free until next year
PlayStation Plus subscribers have been getting hooked up recently, with several high-profile games currently available for free download in the EU region – including DmC: Devil May Cry and Borderlands 2 for the PS3.
If you have a PlayStation 4, though, there’s another perk for this coming weekend. From December 28-31, the multiplayer component for Killzone: Shadow Fall will be free to play for all PS4 owners – essentially the best part of the game. Preloading is available immediately for those who want to get started the minute it unlocks, so get ready to close out the year with some sci-fi multiplayer mayhem.
If there’s anything we can say about Killzone: Shadow Fall, it’s that the game is awfully pretty – a great way to usher in the new generation of consoles. It’s got that 1080p 60fps sheen for you and your friends to gawk at. The single-player campaign is decent but does leave something to be desired, with pacing issues particularly towards the latter half of the game. But while the campaign is good but not great, the multiplayer gameplay is quite addictive and worth returning to again and again. Be sure to check out our review if you’d like to know all of our thoughts in greater detail, but there’s no reason to hesitate when the content is free this weekend.
One thing to note: if you download Killzone: Shadow Fall in order to play the free multiplayer weekend, the single-player content will download as well, but it will not be playable. But hey – if you love it and decide to buy it, at least it’s already fully downloaded, right?
