Killzone Shadow Fall Season Pass Revealed

Poria Torkan's Avatar + Posted by Poria Torkan on Sep 24, 2013 // Producer, Guerrilla Games

Killzone Shadow Fall Season Pass

Today we’re excited to announce the season pass for Killzone Shadow Fall.

We’re pulling out all the stops for Killzone Shadow Fall’s multiplayer, and we already have several forms of downloadable content planned for extensive post-launch multiplayer support. In addition to new competitive multiplayer maps – which, as we mentioned before, will be released for free – we’re also working on paid expansion packs that will further enhance your online experience.

To help you save on the first six expansion packs, we’re introducing the Killzone Shadow Fall Season Pass. For just $19.99, you will receive access to the following packs as they become available:

  • Online co-op expansion pack
    Focusing on team play and intense combat, the online co-op expansion pack adds a new co-operative game mode in which you and up to three online friends must survive against impossible odds. Fight waves upon waves of enemies in four new arena maps, featuring a unique leveling system and new unlocks.
  • Three online co-op map packs
    Each map pack consists of two brand-new arena maps you can play in co-op mode with your friends. Please note that these arena maps will only work with the online co-op expansion pack.
  • Two additional multiplayer expansion packs
    We’ll reveal more about these additional multiplayer expansion packs when Killzone Shadow Fall’s launch date nears. Suffice to say they’ll offer many hours of additional multiplayer thrills!

But that’s not all – if you get your Season Pass for day one of Killzone Shadow Fall, you will also receive access to an exclusive OWL combat drone skin and a unique Multiplayer Spotlight move. Take advantage of this excellent value deal to maximize your online experience!

Keep a close eye on Killzone.com and PlayStation.Blog, because we’ll have more Killzone Shadow Fall information soon.

Sounds like a lot of additional content for $20.

But….multiplayer isn’t really my thing. Any plans for single player story expansions?

When they recently announced that DLC for Kz:SF was going to be free they made it seem that all DLC was going to be free..

    Killzone Shadow Fall will launch with 10 multiplayer maps. All the multiplayer maps that will be released as DLC will be free to everyone. The multiplayer expansion packs will be charged for however they do not divide the playerbase e.g. you will still be able to play with players who have not purchased the multiplayer expansion pack, they will have additional options.

Season Passes are just the next step in everything that is wrong with game development today.

First we pre-ordered the game.
Then they would hold stuff and only give it to people that pre-ordered.
Then with kickstarter, they ask you to pay for the game before they even make it.
And with DLC, they hold off pieces of the game to sell them separate.

And now with Season Pass, they’re asking you to pre-order parts of the game they’re withholding from you to sell them to you separate.

I guess when they start making a ‘Stretch Goal’ on Kickstarter for a Season Pass you can pre-order, everything will be complete.

    This is the biggest title that we have created yet and we will be there at the launch of the PS4. That said, we want to continue to support Killzone Shadow Fall extensively after launch and we’ve heard from the community that they would love to have co-op and a continued expansion of the multiplayer experience. And don’t forget that we are offering our post launch multiplayer maps for free to everyone.

This kind of business with season passes is overdone. I might as well just wait for the inevitable game of the year editions.

I think u guys said ALL DLC for KZ SF would be free… >_>

What I’d like to know is: are there any plans for DLC for Killzone: Mercenary?
While I understand why people have issues with DLC, if the main game has enough content than I am fine with it. Many companies struggle with making a profit on AAA games, so if this helps them continue making them, I’ll gladly accept it. I struggle finding time to complete most of the games I buy, so having optional DLC is a bonus when I actually do finish.

+ freshprincepbg on September 24th, 2013 at 9:51 am said:

So is the entire co op mode behind the Season Pass or its just extra maps? If the entire co oo mode is behind season pass, than that’s very weak.

Also I wish you could pre order this game on the PSN store

+ Steel_Ravager on September 24th, 2013 at 9:52 am said:

They said all multiplayer map packs will be free, they said at the same time that things like this wouldn’t be. I always feel horrible purchasing map packs after the fact, almost pointless and I’ve regretted every single season pass that has given me maps. I think this model better and at least it’s not the 60$ season pass that other games are going with.

Are those co-op missions split-screen as well?…please say YES….season pass looks good enough…I’m not much of a buyer of season passes but KZ stuff is worth every penny.I bought all the DLCs for KZ3 and I still play them…I’ll do the same with Shadow Fall no doubt about it.

@PlayStation when can we start to Preorder our Digital day 1 games on PSN? I want to buy Battlefield 4 & Premium on PS4 but I want the digital version of the game. I don’t want to miss out on any exclusive free DLC by not having the option to Preorder on PSN.

Also I think Coop maps should be free not held back by Season Pass for Killzone: SF.

season passes are stupid. the only 1 i have bought was The Last of Us and still waiting on content.

I always bought the KZ maps because they were like $5 a pack. now they want $20 for co-op & horde mode that should be included anyway. jeez.

Oh look, another rip-off season pass that only details half of the content.

No thanks.

Never bought a season pass and have never regretted it after seeing what those season passes eventually offer.

ok! thanks for the answer! :)

so then the expansion modes are the ones who are gonna be charged. mmm….. not sure how to react to this…Im happy u are giving me the maps for free but kinda weird how u guys (and all other developers out there) are holding out something as CO-OP just to sell it later… :(

u know i might get it after u talk about all the season pass… Ive never bought a season pass but since i love KZ and guerrilla and after all they are giving the map packs for free… mmmmh…. not sure how i feel about it… AHH!

Hey I’ve got a really sweet idea. Wait three months, add all that stuff that you wanted to charge 20 dollars for, then release the game for the original 60 dollars that it should be worth. NOW THAT’S A GENIUS IDEA! And I’m not even very smart!


33

+ Screwdriver1020 on September 24th, 2013 at 11:13 am said:

Also how the hell can you ask people to pay for dlc before the game even comes out. WTF? I just don’t get this strategy what are they thinking! D:C is supposed to be added after the original game and extras have been finished just in case people decide they would like to continue playing the game.

This is awesome news! I was on the fence about getting KZSF, but a co-op mode has sealed the deal for me. Can you confirm that the co-op mode will have public matchmaking? Also, are you able to confirm whether the game will support 3D?

+ brunojm_usa on September 24th, 2013 at 11:42 am said:

So, free DLC for standard multiplayer maps. Paid DLC for online multiplayer co-op and all map packs for only $20. Man, that’s a steal! Getting this Season Pass is one of the first things I’m gonna do!
But guys from GG, you know the Internet, the sooner you clarify what these 2 multiplayer expansion packs are the better. I know, free maps are still free maps, but I bet some people will get confused (as we can see in comments here already).

Regardless of everyone huffin’ and puffin’ about the announcement of a season pass, I can’t help but feel like this is the best season pass that’s ever been announced. A $20 prince point, as opposed to COD’s $50 Pass? I’d far sooner take the Killzone Pass. I’m stoked about how many people are getting this game.

Killzone 2 was the best in the series. The story in Killzone 3 and the lack of immersion with the cut scenes really turned me off… But it looks like this one is shaping up to meet the potential Killzone always had.

You guys said Multiplayer map packs would be free and I took you for your word but you ended up lying just to come out with this season pass nonsense. It’s too bad that GG has sold out. Before you defend that co-op doesn’t count, co-op IS multiplayer too or it wouldn’t be played with other people.

It’s just sad that game modes that should of and used to be included in games are now being sold as paid DLC. Don’t say you listened to the community. If you had you would of known well in advance that we want these modes in these games included as part of the package. Games today are expensive and leaving modes to nickle and dime us forces many of us to wait months for a sale or to not buy the game at all. Paying full price for this, plus needing a PS+ subscription, plus paying for the season price is ridiculous. I really love Killzone but you guys just forced me to stick with Killzone Mercenary on Vita and some other game like Blacklight when I get the PS4.

How the mighty has fallen. This news really sucks. :(

And this might seem a strange question, but will it be possible to buy the pass through the current store, or will we have to wait until we have our PS4s hooked up?
