‘Killzone: Shadow Fall’ Vita Play Demoed; Trophy List Revealed

By | 3 years ago 

Helghan/Vekta relations are about to take a sharp turn for the worse, what with the release of Killzone: Shadow Fall later this week. Debuting alongside Sony’s hotly anticipated PlayStation 4 platform, the surefire system-seller doesn’t lack for size, scope or interesting features – so what about cross-platform compatibility?

Well, according to a new series of tweets from developer Guerilla Games‘, not only is the title attuned for PS Vita play as standard, but may well come to thrive on the handheld system as well.

Addressing his 1500-plus followers on Thursday, Killzone: Shadow Fall director Steven ter Heide unveiled the first (low-res) look at the hardware hook-up in action. Utilizing the PS4’s Gaikai streaming technology, the link appears to produce little in the way of noticeable lag – a 1 or 2 frame differential, at worst – judging by Heide’s admittedly poor quality of footage.

Given that the Vita employs two different types of link tech – direct (faster) and router-based (varied) — this demonstration could even be selling the experience short, though Heide’s chosen mode isn’t actually stated. To see the footage for yourself, check out the video up top.
