Killzone 4 underway!

KZ3 is my second favourite shooter. Yeh 2nd fave so what? Well I often wonder whether Im drawn to COD because others are too. Indeed I have had many moments in kz3 where im like ‘man that was great I loved that…….I wish someone had seen it..’ . Or worse Im really up for a game and there is no one in the lobby. The competitive nature of cod and the fact you can get instant recognition all adds to the adrenaline and the draw of cod. Being good at call of duty can be addictive . I want people to ask me how I did so well or indeed to call me a cheater as I pulled off a 34-1 game. KZ3 hasn’t got enough players to even get a lobby together never mind a lobby full of sycophants that speak the same language.That said KZ has an x factor that cod hasnt. The guns feel raw and every kill feels earned. You cant spam your rifle across a huge distance and get a kill ( well rarely) . The movment feels more solid and tactics are a necessity. The graphics and sound are awe inspiring and Blood Gracht is my favourite multi player map of any game apart from overgrown.

Anyway here is some tasty info on Kz4 :

Dutch developer Guerrilla Games are allegedly working on ‘the next Killzone instalment’, according to a new interview in Edge magazine – a new game that sounds like it might be destined for the PlayStation 4.

According to Edge ‘the bulk of Guerrilla’s staff (is soldiering) on with the next Killzone instalment.’ Although a new Killzone title is coming to the PS Vita it’s being developed by Sony Cambridge Studio, who did the PSP version of LittleBigPlanet.

In the same issue, Guerrilla’s Adrian Smith also suggests that, ‘we’ve got to continue the Killzone franchise’. We’re not sure exactly how many other people would agree with that, but apparently there’s no stopping it now.

There’s no clue in the article as to what format Guerrilla’s new game is on, or if it is literally Killzone 4, but Edge has also recently reported the following, which sounds like it could easily be a description of Guerrilla Games:

‘One major Sony-owned studio has now ceased PlayStation 3 development, its entire focus having shifted to the console’s successor. The studio is also said to have been involved in the development process of the graphics technology adopted by Sony’s new hardware.’

Although the next generation Xbox is widely expected to be unveiled at E3 in June, likely with a Christmas 2012 release date, little is known about Sony’s plans for the PlayStation 4. However, a recent rumour from France did suggest that Sony will make an announcement next year.
I’m off for a walk with Jody now. Last night we stayed in and chilled and watched Octopussy . Roger Moores penultimate Bond. The weather is chilly and I’m looking forward to some hot coffee whilst walking around New Taipei City.
