More tantalizing intel from Guerrilla Games brings an update surrounding the long awaited clan ecosystem associated with Killzone Shadow Fall. In the update on the games official site the talented dev issued an apology to the series loyal fans for being forced to wait for a number of content updates, primarily clan support. Now it has been clarified Guerrilla will be rolling out the games clan features in multiple phases.
The first phase will arrive with patch 1.09, which is currently slated for an early February release. This phase introduces clan system features to both the game and the website. The patch will add support for displaying clan tags alongside player names in the game, while the website will receive basic clan management functionality – including the ability to create clans, add/remove members, and promote members to clan officers.
In subsequent phases, we will expand on these features through free game patches and site updates, based in part on your feedback. Guerrilla will also enhance Killzone Shadow Fall’s competitive multiplayer experience through the release of new content, such as free maps and the soon-to-be-announced first DLC expansion pack.
If you’re like many fans who are still scratching their heads asking themselves why clan support in at least a phase one sort of experience was not offered when the game was launched, you might find yourself in a very long line. The obvious answer might be found in the assumption that Guerrilla Games just didn’t have the necessary time needed to implement all they intended for the game prior to launch and that should be completely understandable. Killzone Shadow Fall was a PS4 launch title without the basic option of game chat however, gradually it appears Guerrilla has been slowly but surely adding all the games rich feature options in an effort of making this Killzone experience one gamers might find themselves playing for quite a while. Lets just hope Guerrilla will have added more than enough necessary content to keep gamers interested as new next-gen shooter begin making their way to the market.
