Today we’re giving you a look at the first pair of downloadable multiplayer maps for Killzone Shadow Fall, inspired by key locations from the single-player campaign. The maps will be released to the community free of charge, and will be fully compatible with Killzone Shadow Fall’s Custom Warzone feature.
2013 has been an absolutely phenomenal year for all of us here at Guerrilla Games, from launching Killzone Mercenary – the go-to shooter on the PS Vita – to the honor of launching Killzone Shadow Fall alongside PS4 this November with unprecedented love and affection from fans old and new.
As hinted back in August by Shuhei Yoshida, President of Worldwide Studios, we’re excited to announce that starting today, PS Plus members can begin pre-loading Killzone Shadow Fall now for a special FREE multiplayer extended open weekend from 12/28 through 12/31.
Through this promotion, the PS4 owners who don’t yet own Shadow Fall can easily try the game’s acclaimed multiplayer mode, and experience first-hand the excitement that thousands of videos and livestreams have already spread via the PS4′s powerful share functionality.
Last week we released two behind-the-scenes videos that provided an intimate look at the Guerrilla Games studio and Killzone Shadow Fall’s PS4-powered technology. This week we continue where we left off with two brand new behind-the-scenes videos that focus on Killzone Shadow Fall’s story and characters.
This generation, your epic moments are meant to be shared, and the Share Button makes it easier than ever to show the world your greatness.

In order to properly demonstrate the framerate and resolution we achieve in Killzone 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.

To Vektan Security Agency Director Sinclair, the biggest threat to peace is the very presence of the Helghast people.
