New Multiplayer and Co-Op MapsBy Victor Zuylen on 11-sep-2014 11:04:48
A new batch of free maps for Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer and Killzone Shadow Fall Intercept became available on the European PlayStation Store this week! Fight against the enemy team on the new “The Statue” competitive multiplayer map, or co-operate with your friends on “The ATAC Tower” and “The Canal” co-op maps.
The Statue – competitive multiplayer map
After a cataclysmic explosion laid waste to their precious monument, the Helghast embarked on the massive task of reconstructing the Scolar Visari memorial statue and the adjacent armory building. While the recreational wing of the facility is largely completed, the armory itself is still covered in scaffolding and building equipment.
Choose your base exit carefully on this map, as there are many different routes providing fast and easy access to all extremes of the combat area. The warren of interconnecting rooms will allow for clever flanking maneuvers once you know your way around, and you can gain an additional advantage by maintaining control of the large mechanical doors.
The ATAC Tower – cooperative map*
Perched inside the Helghast security wall, the ATAC Tower functions as a base for the ATAC drones patrolling New Helghan’s borders. The drones have proven to be an effective deterrent against Vektan invaders and Helghast defectors, so the VSA is sending in Intelligence Squad Alpha to secure the tower. Their orders are to establish an uplink and transmit the ATAC control codes back to HQ – but they’ll have to fight with their backs to the wall to hold off the Helghast forces converging on their position.
The Canal – cooperative map*
Fallen into disuse after the New Helghan government abandoned hydroelectric power, the Canal has become an overgrown riverbed filled with discarded junk and debris. A key VSA informant used one of the abandoned treatment facilities along the banks as a hideout before disappearing, so now it’s up to Intelligence Squad Alpha to send the collected intel back to Vekta. But it won’t be easy – Helghast security has discovered the hideout as well, and they’ll do anything to prevent Alpha from establishing an uplink.
*Please note that you need Killzone Shadow Fall Intercept (add-on expansion or standalone version) to play The ATAC Tower and The Canal.
For those of you in North America, please be assured that the maps become available with next week’s Store update. We hope you enjoy the new maps and try them with the new clan functionality and added Intercept game modes we introduced in Patch 1.5. We’ll be playing with and answering questions from the community on our official Twitch TV channel tomorrow at 17:00 BST / 12:00 EDT / 9:00 PDT, so be sure to tune in!
