We've already gone over everything the OWL can do for a player in Killzone: Shadow Fall, but we haven't gotten to see it in action yet. Consider that problem solved, as Sony's released their E3 gameplay footage in addition to the preorder details for the game. In the trailer we can see the OWL being used in a variety of ways: ropes, shooting dudes, shields, checking Reddit. Oh OWL, you should be in every game.
It should come as no surprise then that the "Shadow Pack" DLC that comes with every preorder will include several skins for the OWL. Sure, there's also the game's official soundtrack and a multiplayer celebration emote, but really the OWL skins are all that matters. Guerilla should just rename the game Killzone: OWL, or maybe OWLzone. Okay guys, we get it, enough with the OWL marketing already.
Killzone: Shadow Fall will be released exclusively on the PlayStation 4 at launch, which should be some time in November.
