Killzone: Shadow Fall Woos Us With Shiny Gameplay And Pre-Order Incentives
Sony has released a gameplay video for Killzone: Shadow Fall which clocks in at nearly nine minutes in length. In that time there’s plenty to see of the snow, Helghast, humans, guns, lens flare and Killzone’s OWL, no not this kind of owl.
The OWL we’re talking about is a flying combat drone which players can issue commands to by means of the DualShock 4’s touchpad. The list includes deployment of ziplines or shields.

The footage is actually taken from a demo which was available to the public at E3 and if you’ve been following the game you might recognise little bits of it from the E3 trailer shown at Sony’s conference. Whether this excites you or leaves you impressed but indifferent (like me), one thing that’s certain is this game looks incredible.
Meanwhile, Sony has announced the Killzone: Shadow Fall Shadow Pack for those who’d like a good starting point for a Killzone-themed tongue twister but also for those who pre-order the PS4 through participating retailers. Expect our own BT Games to likely be one of those participating retailers. In case you’re wondering why Killzone is promoting PS4 pre-orders, the game was confirmed as a launch title for the console.
The Shadow Pack comes complete with various skins for your companion OWL, the official soundtrack and a number of in-game items. Below you can check out the skins on offer for the OWL. There are three variants – Guerilla, US Airforce and ‘Murica. These are not official names for the skins but they really should be.
OWL skin – Give your OWL a unique appearance with these exclusive skins. Who says combat drones need to be devoid of personality?
MP Spotlight move – Celebrate your triumphs over enemy players in multiplayer mode in a new and unique way with this special victory move.
Official soundtrack – Listen to the epic cinematic score for Killzone: Shadow Fall as it brings both sides of the conflict to life like never before.
The only question that remains is whether you’ll be pre-ordering a PS4 and if you’re keen to get your hands on Shadow Fall. I’m dying to get a PS4, not so much for Shadow Fall but I wouldn’t mind if it came as part of a launch bundle.
