Maps, maps, maps. They're all well and good until you're paying $15 for four of them and you wake up in an alley, because you really needed another map and couldn't afford it. Anyways, Guerrilla Games empathizes with that feeling and decided to help their homies out. The team will be offering a pair of completely free Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer maps, which they've decided to reveal today. Introducing "The Cruiser" and "The Hanger". Names need some work.
- 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.
- 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.
Aha, a claustrphobic close-to-mid-range map and a wide-open sniping map. Not exactly original ideas, but I suppose when they're being provide for free you can't exactly demand something iconic, right? At least they both work with Killzone Shadow Fall's "Custome Warzone" mode.
Killzone Shadow Fall is currently available exclusive on PlayStation 4 and is, maybe, the best exclusive on the system. While neither of the maps announced today have a confirmed release date, we can likely expect them sometime around when it would be beneficial advertising for the game's first premium DLC.
