Feature: PS4 – The Next Generation – Part 2

In Part 2 of our PS4 reveal feature, Matt Reynolds delves into what we all wanted to see and talks games…

With the much-anticipated description of the new console out-of-the-way it was time for journalists and public alike to get a glimpse into what true, next generation gaming was going to look like. First up were Guerilla Studios with Killzone: Shadow Fall. Setting a trend that would continue throughout the event, and most probably the whole generation; the Killzone sequel shied away from a numerical fixture and instead made use of a subtitle. Developers are seemingly keen to emphasise that this is the start of a brand new era in gaming; leaving behind the trilogies of the last gen. The game looks absolutely stunning; to see it in motion is to see the future of console graphics power. A gameplay walkthrough that started on a dropship flying through an enormous city before settling on a rooftop, witnessing a terrorist attack and then enduring a hectic shootout; the game is pure orgasm for the eyeballs. The only worry stems from the hard fact that this is still just a generic FPS and graphics aside it brings nothing new to the table. We still haven’t forgotten the Killzone debacle from a few years back either – will the finished article actually look this good? Time will tell.

No denying, Killzone: Shadowfall is a beauty.
