We have seen a few trailers about Killzone Shadow Fall showing off your new flying pet, but we haven’t heard much about the story of this game so far. I mean, you have to have SOME reason to shoot up a bunch of things, right?

That poor, pretty space town we see looks like it is about to have had better days. It’s sounding like you play a person who is getting involved with the fight between the Helghast and…some other people. Crazy! Here, this is the official description:

Killzone Shadow Fall takes place 30 years after the events of Killzone 3. Set in an era of interplanetary colonization, it focuses on the conflict between the Vektans and the Helghast, two rival colonist factions inhabiting a distant planet. For three decades, both factions have lived side by side, separated by an enormous security wall – but now their cold war is about to go hot.

It’s up to Lucas Kellan, a member of the military intelligence unit known as the Shadow Marshals, to try to protect the fragile peace that exists. A new warrior for a new era of war, Kellan ‘s missions will range from quiet infiltrations to all-out combat. Lucas will need to be methodical and ready to adapt, as any misstep could lead to mutually assured destruction!

As far as the status of this game. Just yesterday it was reported that Shadow Fall has gone gold, so it’s on its way to the printers to be ready in time for the PS4 launch in November. Neat! And if you are at all curious, this is what I thought of Killzone 3.
