Killzone: Shadow Fall is a game that Sony hopes will make you rush out and get a new PS4. Sony announced Shadow Fall as a launch title for the PlayStation 4 back in February of 2013. We’ve already seen a demo showing us what the game looks like along with a game play walk-through video.
Well, now we have some new info about Killzone: Shadow Fall. Apparently, at one point the game was 290 GB before it was compressed to fit on a PlayStation 4 Blu-ray disc. That compression took the 290 GB size down to 40 GB. One reason for the huge amount of data in the game is that Shadowfall has huge open game area. Also the game has no assets made to a lower specification. The technical director says that the surface area in Shadow Fall is 5 to 10 times larger than the area in Killzone 3, which quite frankly makes us excited for this game all over again.
Even at 40 GB this is a huge file to download if you buy it digitally. It won’t be a problem, but the PlayGo system for the PlayStation 4 allows players to begin playing when only part of the game has been downloaded, but will still require an estimated 7.5 GB be downloaded before that. This game certainly sounds like they focused on quality for everything.
