Today Guerrilla Games gives us a glimpse into their new upcoming multiplayer maps for Killzone Shadow Fall. Offering up two new maps which are inspired from the games campaign, both maps as promised will be free downloads. Taken from the official Playstation blog both maps are explained below:
First up is The Cruiser, a close-to-mid-range combat map set in the confines of a decommissioned ISA cruiser. Consisting of tight, claustrophobic corridors and interconnected compartments, the key to dominating this map is identifying and controlling its choke points.
Next is The Hangar, a wide-open map situated in the hangar bay of one of Helghan’s humongous mining spires. In addition to the main area, which offers long lines of sight suitable for sniping, the map contains alternative routes that will need to be secured for full control.
Guerrilla points also out they are also working on delivering the games first DLC expansion pack in the near future. Unfortunately there is still no exact date given to the launch of the two new maps. Just speaking my mind, while I hope to be completely wrong on the matter, the games multiplayer experience while it is quite enjoyable has yet to receive any content updates in the form of maps, modes, coop experiences, etc, and is increasingly beginning to look like a sorely missed opportunity. Let’s hope as the official post reads, there’s a whole season of exciting multiplayer content coming to Killzone Shadow Fall much sooner than later.
