Guerrilla:We Did The Best In The Time We Had

Some developers of Dutch studio Guerrilla Games are holding an Ask Me Anything session on r/PS4. The Senior Online Producer, Samrat Sharma, replied to many interesting questions with sheer honesty, mainly about their launch title, Killzone: Shadow Fall.

A few people have been lamenting the absence of 3D and PlayStation Move support, which were both available in Killzone 3. Sharma said that they were practically forced to leave those optionals out because of time constraints, and they tried to do their best with the time they had available – clearly, most launch titles are always at least a bit rushed.

As we were working on launch hardware we needed to cut out extras like Move and 3D to ensure we delivered the best possible experience with shadow Fall within the time we had.

We really like what we did with SF.

Sharma also admitted that the player number in online multiplayer matches is surprisingly lower, something that has been discussed within the community since the very launch of Killzone: Shadow Fall.

I’ll be honest, it’s low, but it’s enough that everyone is in a near full to full match, so we keep on supporting them. Intercept will bring in a lot of players who haven’t played in a while.

Having played the game a lot, I have to concur that while the numbers are inexplicably low, there really isn’t any practical issue in finding matches, so in reality the gaming experience isn’t diminished at all.

Another interesting tidbit is that a “retro map announcement” is incoming, meaning that gamers will get to play some of their favorite maps from Killzone 2 & 3 in Shadow Fall.

Retro maps are coming!

Stay tuned for our retro map announcement too.

Are you still playing Guerrilla’s KZ:SF? The game will soon receive a co-op expansion called Intercept, which will be shown at E3. Look forward to some more information about it next week.

    I want 32 player matches. Developers have to understand they can’t exactly go backwards with an IP. Which is why Resistance 3 was such crap.

  • Guest

    It’s dead and deservedly so as it’s an overhyped PoS, like so many things $0N¥.

    • GodGamerDerp

      You must have mental issues to literally hate a piece of plastic and people who like gaming on it.

        The game is dead get over it, 2 + million sold and there is less then 4,000 people at peak hours.
        and late hours less then 1,000. Shadowfall is one of the worst rated games in the franchise. Last gen killzones where more “next gen”

        They had a chance to make killzone a major game at the start of the gen and dropped the ball.

        • GodGamerDerp

          It’s a launch title and sold and reviewed well.

          Just because most PS4 gamers are on CoD and BF4 doesn’t make KZ MP a failure.

          And that “pauper” fanboy troll is all over disqus.

          • Guest

            The game has around 1500 people at peak playing online and at night it hits less then 800 out of 2million sold. That is a failure no matter how you spin it.

            The game is a failure and is rated one the worst in the series, the only way this game will make it another 6 months, is if the multiplayer goes F2P on ps+.

            • GodGamerDerp

              Actually sales are up since they dropped the price to $39.99.

              U mad?

              • Guest

                Sales have nothing to do with anything the game sold over 2 million. The Problem is nobody is playing the multiplayer hardly the community is dying and down to less then 2000 players. Stop being a fanboy.

                Even GG stated the online player count is low.

                • GodGamerDerp

                  Apparently PS4’s stronger hardware, ~3.5 million sales lead, large number of 1st party developers, more games, and more developer support have microsoft fanboys extremely upset, causing them to spread lies and hatred. Thankfully everyone is ignoring these children and buying PS4s like hotcakes anyway.

                  It’s good to know you’re completely wrong and raging against facts and reality, and nothing you say will happen. You are clearly mentally ill hating a corporation and pieces of plastic.

                    Perhaps if you copy and pasted less you would reallize thats incorrect since i am a pc gamer, but hey as long as ps4 beats xbone xtreme derpo is happy, no mention of the ps4 being a weak overhyped pc in a box.

                    Seriously get real kid, pc takes a glorious turd on both of your pathetic cosnole.

                    Xbox also has games that are not on ps4 but you dont see me memorize them you sony damage controling robot.

        • TraceSkipper

          It is a PoS. Its very frustrating especially concerning the trophy requirements to upgrade all your abilities – which takes a massive amount of time. I play this game everyday for hours online. My level is 777 and i’m completed the scout abilities kit. And I actually regret buying this game but I realize after a long time that this was best they could do with the time constraints. The reason I think its biggest fault is that it feels like a beta version not the retail version. But I’m a grown up and I respect what they tried to do and will continue to support it.

    • Dikan45

      Have a day off troll!!

      • Dakan45

        you are doing it again, you find posts that insult me and upvote them, then you say you are not a troll, please go fuck your mother dipshit.

      • Durka Durka

        look whos talking.

    • You are flat out wrong

      That distinction is reserved for Ryse and Titanflop.

  • Eden’s Cross

    Next time focus on gameplay and not on a tech demo for maybe gamers will stay interested. Also hire an actual writer too.

          why dont you choke on your jap overlords dick?

          Oh i forgot its too small.

          • You are flat out wrong

            Being so angry you respond to a five day old comment with racism. That’s our Dakan. :^)

            • Dakan45

              angry? i thought that was funny, no racism, i am serious why do you keep going on?

              or a better question why you stop did you finally buy a ps4? Then again you came back, seems you found out that ps4 has no games.

              You still call titanfall a titanflop but it scored far better thani inflopiouus second fail, are you mad ms got insomniac now?

              • You are flat out wrong

                Could say the same for why you crawled back into view. Finally squeeze Titanflop dry? Don’t worry, Sunset Overdrive is out in October. If you can wait that long. :)

                • Dakan45

                  You got that right, because some people cant replay the last of us remake in the summer and jerkoff on it until february 2015 finally brings them the order, a QTE in dissquise.

    When recently wrapping up the remaining multiplayer trophies for this game, I found it interesting how only like 3,000 people were on this game at once tops. The multiplayer is actually rather fun, so it’s surprising to see such low numbers. I guess most people just forgot about the games multiplayer in favor of other multiplayer (or single-player) games.

    • You are flat out wrong

      I’ve always seen KZ as a single player game, unlike COD and Battlefield which are both focused on multiplayer.

  • PachterStation

    It was graphically awesome, but was gutted how bad it played. It was a launch game, which is why it sold decent, but still, plenty will have bought it even if it wasn’t a launch game. Lack of people playing it online and the fact that CEX is swamped with part exchanges (last time I looked, it was only £14), says it all. Killzone killed itself.
