Sony Reveals New Killzone, Infamous and First-Party PS4 Support

Killzone: Shadow Fall

Sony unveiled the future of the PlayStation brand with the PS4 at the PlayStation Meeting 2013. The company showed off several things including the controller, PS Vita connectivity, social features, and even a release window. The one thing that impressed, however, were the games; especially Sony’s first party offerings.

The first game shown was the action platformer Knack. Introduced by Mark Cerny, who was involved with games like Crash Bandicoot and Jak and Daxter, Knack tells the story of a creature built from ancient relics who helps defend mankind from a goblin army. Along the way, Knack will collect more relics that will increase his size and powers. The game looks to incorporate elements from some of Sony’s previous mascot driven titles and even contains hints of Katamari Damacy. Knack was also revealed to be playable on the Vita through Remote Play.

[adsense250itp]Next to be shown was live gameplay from Killzone: Shadow Fall. Shadow Fall takes place thirty years after the events of Killzone 3, where the Helghast and Vektans live side-by-side in a city divided by an enormous wall. Players take control of a Shadow Marshal who is tasked with maintaining the balance between the two sides to prevent a war. The demo for Killzone: Shadow Fall truly showed the type of advanced technology gamers could expect from the PS3.

Driveclub was a new racing series revealed right after Killzone: Shadow Fall. One of the highlights of Driveclub is its highly realistic models of real-life cars. Evo, the studio behind the game, worked with some of the top car companies in the world to create authentic car interiors and exteriors. The racing game will focus heavily on team-based racing and competing with a group of friends.

A new entry in the inFamous franchise was announced with inFamous: Second Son. Instead of featuring series protagonist Cole McGrath, Second Son will star Delsin Rowe, a new character with new powers. The game takes place seven years after inFamous 2 and is set in Seattle. Delsin has the ability to direct, manipulate and transform into smoke and will use those powers to elude the Department of Unified Protection who want to make sure events from the previous games don’t happen again. The video premiering the game also mentioned elements from the real world where people give up their freedoms in the hope for just a little more security.

All gameplay videos and demos were said to be shown on the PS4 engines they were designed with. So far, everything looks quite impressive. Though it is not certain if new details or games will be announced soon, it is almost guaranteed that more PS4 content will be shown during this year’s E3.
