During the PlayStation 4 introduction yesterday in New York, Sony revealed Killzone: Shadow Fall -- a mesmerizing first-person shooter that will arrive this fall as a launch title for the highly anticipated game console.
Enjoy its splendor in the following screenshots courtesy of developer Guerrilla Games.
Confused about the scenes? In a blog post, Killzone: Shadow Fall game director Steven Ter Heide mentions a basic plot summary for Shadow Fall, which takes place in Vekta City during the year 2381:
"The game is set in a near future, thirty years after the events of Killzone 3. The world is a very different place; two rival factions known as the Helghast and the Vektans live side by side in a futuristic city, divided by a vast wall. Tensions are high, and the cold war they are embroiled in is about to go hot. In the midst of this all stands a Shadow Marshal, you. The most special of the special forces, tasked with maintaining the delicate balance."
In this image, we see what could be the beginning of the end for an unidentified Vektan solider who faces a menacing Helghast flier with laser-based target tracking.
The proceeding 4K resolution (3,840x2,160) screenshots of Killzone: Shadow Fall indicate that the title -- and more importantly, the PlayStation 4 -- are poised to deliver a breathtaking graphical experience for gamers.
