You’ll be able to customize your weapons in Killzone: Shadow Fall, Guerrilla Games has revealed.
In the first article in a series highlighting the weapons of Killzone: Shadow Fall, Guerrilla Games brings to the forefront the Helghast StA-55 assault rifle, a successor to the trusty StA-52 and the new standard rifle for Helghast soldiers.
The game’s Art director and firearms designer Roy Postma spoke about the many enhancements to the weapon, but what stood out the most to me was the addition of customization.
“It’s still the same work horse of the Helghast, doing the same thing: a high fire rate with a big magazine in a nice, compact package. It’s the perfect all-round weapon if you don’t require high accuracy. So there are no new surprises on the weapon in terms of functionality,” Postma said on Killzone.com.
The biggest functional change, and one that is not limited to the StA-55, is the reintroduction of attachments. We can switch out various sights and optics, secondary weapon attachments, grips, flashlights, silencers – you name it. This makes the StA-55 even more versatile, but it did require us to go over some functional and cosmetic changes to be able to make them all fit on the weapon in an appealing and functional manner.”
This really gets me excited, as some of you may know I’m a big Killzone fan, and I can’t wait to get my hands on the latest, Shadow Fall. With the addition of weapons customization, it’ll be interesting to see how the dynamics of the game is enhanced, and even the longevity of the online multiplayer itself.
