Killzone: Shadow Fall

Guerrilla Games has revealed the first pair of free downloadable multiplayer maps for Killzone: Shadow Fall.

Inspired by key locations from the single-player campaign, the maps are called “The Cruiser” and “The Hangar.”

The Cruiser is “a close-to-mid-range combat map set in the confines of a decommissioned ISA cruiser,” according to Guerrilla. “Consisting of tight, claustrophobic corridors and interconnected compartments, the key to dominating this map is identifying and controlling its choke points.”

The Hangar is “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.”

In addition to these free maps, Guerrilla is also working on the first downloadable expansion to Killzone: Shadow Fall. It promises to share more details in the near future.
