: : : : : Killzone Shadow Fall

[edit] Background

Killzone Shadow Fall is set in a near future, thirty years after the events of KIllzone 3. The world is a very different place; two rival factions known as the Helghast and the Vektans live side by side in a futuristic city, divided by a vast wall. Tensions are high, and the cold war they are embroiled in is about to go hot. In the midst of all this stands a Shadow Marshal, you. The most special of the special forces, tasked with maintaining the delicate balance. From responding to bold attacks to quiet infiltrations or all-out combat, you will be required to adapt and think on your feet as you have to face a variety of escalating events that could destroy your home world.

[edit] Game Play

Following the cataclysmic chain of events that destroyed planet Helghan and abruptly ended the war in Killzone 3, the Helghast survivors and ISA remnants have settled into an uneasy truce. As part of the post-war reconciliations, the Helghast have been granted their own sectors on the lush, Eden-like planet of Vekta and its glorious capital, Vekta City.

For three decades, both factions have lived side by side, separated by an enormous security wall – but now their cold war is about to go hot. Behind the scenes, forces within each faction have begun warring and conspiring to further their own agendas. Some, like the extremist splinter group Black Hand, want to force an all-out civil war. Others, like Helghast intelligence operative Echo, are desperately trying to prevent it.

As Shadow Marshal Lucas Kellan, you must deal with the escalating hostilities before they envelop the entire planet. A new warrior for a new era of war, your missions will range from quiet infiltrations to all-out combat. You will need to be methodical and ready to adapt, as any misstep could lead to mutually assured destruction...
