The lights are on
On its official PlayStation blog today, Sony revealed that David Harewood and Jamie Gray Hyder will take on the two lead roles for Guerilla’s upcoming shooter Killzone: Shadow Fall. Shadow Fall is set to release for PlayStation 4 this winter.
Harewood, best known for playing David Estes on the Showtime series Homeland, will take on the role of Sinclair, director of the Vektan Security Agency. Echo, an intelligence operative for the Helghast, will be played by Hyder, who gained attention as the werewolf Danielle in HBO’s True Blood.
Take a look at the media gallery below to see Harewood and Hyder during a motion-capture session, along with their in-game appearances.
Our TakeOne of the few grievances directed at recent Killzone games has been a somewhat uninspired approach to narrative. While a strong story certainly isn't the norm for high-action shooters like Killzone and Call of Duty, it will be interesting to see if and how Shadow Fall turns that standard on its head. The investment in moderately big names like Harewood and Hyder might be an indicator that Guerilla games has given cinematic quality a greater priority in its upcoming game.
Can't wait! I hope this is the Killzone game to make the series go from good to great!
i feel like sony are already dropping the ball with the pr on this one. I mean this is meant to be one of their staple franchises and they haven't really given us any information about this game at all, which leaves me a little worried. Isn't it out this year as well?
Great casting with both especially Estes, he's awesome in Homeland. Sounds to me like Guerilla Games is really investing in story this time which is my favorite part of any game I play.
this might be the first ps4 game i get
Though its great to see more quality actors taking voice acting parts, this isn't the first time the Killzone series has used them, since they had Brian Cox as Visari, Ray Winstone, Malcolm MacDowell, Sean Pertwee etc.
Granted, any improvement in the story telling will be a welcome addition.
