Guerrilla Games is the latest team to have the spotlight shone on them in Sony’s Conversations With Creators video series. Their game, Killzone: Shadow Fall, is all set for the PS4’s launch and Exeutive Producer Angie Smets, Game Director Steven ter Heide, and Technical Director Michael van der Leeuw took turn talking up the PS4’s prowess.
Smets is thrilled that only the PS4 allows them to build new locations and environments with the scale and fidelity that they want. But ter Heide admits something that I’ve long suspected about the PS4 (and the Xbox One for that matter). He states the new console won’t be a huge leap over what the PS3 already offers, but instead of having to choose one fancy graphical effect over another, the team at Guerrilla can throw in everything to make a scene look even better.
Finally, van der Leeuw talks about a PS4 owner’s ability to buy a game online and get playing before the download is finished. If the console does nothing else, you have to agree, that’s an amazing feature.
