Killzone Shadow Fall: Ultra High Bitrate Multiplayer Footage

Michiel van der Leeuw's Avatar + Posted by Michiel van der Leeuw on Nov 04, 2013 // Technical Director, Guerrilla

Killzone Shadow Fall has been built from the ground up for PS4, and the response to the gameplay footage so far has been overwhelmingly positive. Unfortunately, there are limitations to streamed video on the internet, and many of the clips and trailers we’ve released thus far aren’t being viewed in the best possible fidelity and framerate.

Killzone Shadow Fall on PS4

In order to properly demonstrate the framerate and resolution we achieve in Shadow Fall’s multiplayer, we’ve captured and lightly compressed new footage that we’re not offering through a video sharing service. Instead, we ask that you download and locally view the high-resolution, uncompressed footage directly from from us.

Important note: Please use a video player with hardware acceleration when viewing the footage. We recommend Windows Media Player for Windows users and QuickTime Player for Mac users. Do not use a non-accelerated player (such as VLC Media Player) because the framerate and resolution of this movie are simply too high and will likely cause choppy playback.

Click here to download the video.

The video you just saw has been captured from a multiplayer match on “The Park,” which is situated firmly behind enemy lines near the Visari tribute statue.

As you can probably tell from the footage, Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer outputs at a native 1080p, rendering uncapped but always targeting 60 FPS. We’re very pleased with how well the game runs, and we can’t wait for you to play it come November 15th.

In the meantime, let us know what you think in the comments below!

You guys should hand an uncompressed copy to BlimBlim & Gamersyde, they would love to take the bandwith hit.

not to mention a bittorrent.

your work is very handsome I look forward to picking it up the day I pick up my PS4.

Lovely. I would love to see more PS4 footage released in this way! Youtube has its uses, but the quality is ugly in general. Thanks for this!

This game is my PS4 bundle! Played KZ2 and can’t wait to delve back into the KZ universe.

BTW, can’t get it the video to download. Server already overwhelmed? Finally, please do video tutorial regarding creating a warzone :)

Great graphics. Still wish the KZ2 badge system was present, and KZ2 gun recoil, and weekly honor ranks, and a server browser.

Have you considered putting videos like this on the PS3 store for easy viewing on the big screen? Regardless, I think this is great and a lot of nerds like me will enjoy hooking their laptops to their tv to see how great next gen is going to look.

I hope even more super high quality videos are coming…

+ FearMonkey on November 4th, 2013 at 10:35 am said:

Really want to play this, but I’ve had issues playing KZ2 and KZ3 on PS3 as I’m susceptible to motion/simulation sickness if the Field of View is too narrow. And apparently it was too narrow on PS3. Before I commit to this title I’m going to have to try it out first and see if I get headaches or nausea from playing for more than an hour at a time. Do you know what the game’s FOV is set at and is it adjustable? This is the main reason I only play FPSs on PC, because I can adjust the FOV.

Thanks! :)

Here is a straight (minus the periods, you’ll have to add those back, as I not waiting for mods to approve my link) link to the MP footage, as the website is dying:

killzone(dot)dl(dot)playstation(dot)net/killzone/kzsf_multiplayer/KZSF_HIGHTBITRATE_H264(dot)zip

If you notice another comment like this, it’s because the mods had to approve that one.

So smooth. 60fps difference definitely can be seen here.

Yeah, after watching the video I can tell the FOV is way too narrow for me. Gonna have to pass on this. Sorry guys. :(

If possible, will you have a demo? I’d still like to try it out at least. Maybe it won’t be that bad on my TV. Thanks again. :)

Wow!!This is reason enough for me to rethink about picking up a PS4!!! Images are crazy good. I’m still very disappointed about your choice not to include DLNA, and Media server support.

Will the video properly demonstrate the framerate and resolution on Media Player Classic? I uninstalled Windows Media Player pretty much right after getting my computer, so it would be a bit of a hassle to reinstall it. But if I have to, I will.

    + Michiel van der Leeuw on November 4th, 2013 at 11:30 am said:

    Hey @Zezzler, it *might* work in Media Player Classic, but it depends on your configuration. I tried in VLC and it was occupying about two of my eight cores (meaning it was choking). With Windows Media Player it ran at about 1% CPU utilisation, so it was definitely accelerated and very smooth.

    If the video is smooth and the CPU utilisation is low, then it’s accelerated. It depends a bit on hardware which player works for you.

    Good luck!
