We all know the PlayStation 4 was announced last night and we are covering all that goodness in other posts but one of the games shown last night really does deserve its own post. Killzone Shadow Fall was showcased and it looks absolutely mind blowing.
Unless Sony were playing with a bit of smoke and mirrors, which I really hope they weren’t, Killzone Shadow Fall was played live onstage and then the resulting video was uploaded directly to Facebook using the new integrated features of the PlayStation 4.
And here it is
The first thoughts when watching the video is how incredible the graphics are and the virtual seamless move from cut scene to gameplay is fantastic to behold.
The lighting, dust particles and transparency effects really blew my mind. But I think possibly the most exciting aspect was the amount of action that the PlayStation 4 appeared to be handle on screen at one time. There is so much detail and all of it appears to be rendered in real time without any hassles what so ever.
If this is an example of what we can expect with the PlayStation 4 then we are in for a real treat with the next generation and you can now see why they were happy to show their hand early. I don’t know if Microsoft are prepared to go up against this.
Here are some screengrabs from the video, obviously they are not HD but that’s what you get from Facebook screen grabs
Even though they are screengrabs just look how awesome they are.
I cannot wait to get my hands on this title when it releases later this year (I hope)
