You’ve no doubt seen the multitudes of Shadow Fall commercials and video ads during the recent media blitz. Now we learn gamers will get a chance to sample the multiplayer component via an upcoming free trail.
Steven Ter Heide (Game Director at Guerrilla Games) brings us this news via the PlayStation.Blog, who touts, “As hinted back in August by Shuhei Yoshida, President of Worldwide Studios, we’re excited to announce that starting today, PS Plus members can begin pre-loading Killzone Shadow Fall now for a special FREE multiplayer extended open weekend …Through this promotion, the PS4 owners who don’t yet own Shadow Fall can easily try the game’s acclaimed multiplayer mode, and experience first-hand the excitement that thousands of videos and livestreams have already spread via the PS4′s powerful share functionality. Check here for current competitions and tournaments you can watch and/or participate in during the open weekend.”
A note is also included with the post stating that when you pre-load the game in order to prepare for the upcoming multiplayer trail, you will also be, “…downloading single-player content (although MP can be prioritized to complete first). Please be aware that while this single-player content will be automatically downloaded, it will NOT be unlocked during this trial weekend.”
The trail weekend starts on December 28th and runs through the 31st and is available exclusive to PS Plus members only.
