Killzone Shadow Fall: Ultra High Bitrate Multiplayer Footage
6 Author Replies

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!

  • I’m sold already! :) But I’ll watch your video if it’ll make you happy.

  • 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.

  • Thanks!

    There’s gonna be Ultra High Bitrate Single Player Footage too? :D

  • CAN’T WAIT for the 15th

  • 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…

  • Get this when trying to download:

    Unable to load the webpage because the server sent no data.
    Error code: ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE

  • My body is so ready!!!!

  • I love how proactive you guys are to make sure all the hard work your team has put in gets the recognition it deserves!

  • Really, Really want to watch but I am getting an error “This webpage is not available” :(

  • graham_cracka15

    Anyone else getting errors when they click the link? Any help, guys?

  • Why the hell did you not put it to torrent,..
    Sony you sometimes drink stupid

    Cannot wait for PS4 and KZ:SF,..

  • 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.

  • graham_cracka15

    Thanks a ton @Biggz124!

  • Site is down. Thanks @Biggz124 for giving us the direct download though!

  • 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. :)

      Hey @FearMonkey, sorry, just wrote a post instead of hitting the reply button.

      We’ll have a free multiplayer demo available for all PlayStation Plus members on the 28th and 29th of December, check it out @FearMonkey, I hope it’ll convince you :)

  • Thank you @Biggz124!!

  • 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.

  • Can’t get it to work for me :(

  • @Dragjae55 TY

  • thanks @Biggz124 for the Help! ;)

  • Ah the blistering speeds of bullets zipping past your teammates & killing the helghast good times indeed!!!!

  • 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

      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!

  • graham_cracka15

    I can’t open this with WMP or quicktime or anything for that matter :(

  • honkayjeezus

    Thank you!

  • @ Dragjae55 – thanks for the download link. The site is slow, maybe being crushed by traffic, idk.

  • Was not big fan of the Killzone series at all but i might just give it shot then. I’ll pre-order copy of the game then alone with BF4 plus PSCam. :)

  • Cant wait for this game!!! Why do us EU get our PS4 2 weeks after you guys? :( I want it same time so can play this sooner!!

  • SinfulWarrior

    I can’t see the frickin video!

  • Sony needs to do this for all their games… nice high-res vids running at their normal fps because youtube is f’ing garbage. I hope this vid is 60fps!

  • I can’t download the video, it just loads constantly :( but i can imagine its a brilliant video :D

  • Already sold on the game, hopefully I’ll be able to download the video later.

  • Just got my PS4 paid off :-) now the waiting game begins… I will get KZ:sf.. and a few other launch titles, so Please add me if you want, I do need 1,999 friends…

  • nice, just played on my retina macbook pro 13″ and it looks better than great. I believe my body is ready now. :-)

  • Hey guys, very excited about this game. But please do let me know, will it support Mouse/Keyboard ??
