The lights are on
Killzone: Shadow Fall was one of the best looking new games for the PlayStation 4, but if you've been playing this shooter since it's launch last November, you're probably ready for some new maps.
Guerrilla games first pair of downloadable multiplayer maps for Killzone: Shadow Fall are called The Cruiser and The Hangar.
The Cruiser is a close-to-mid-range map revolving around a decommissioned ISA cruiser. Players will have to carefully identifying its choke points before mastering these claustrophobic corridors.
As the name suggests, the action of the The Hangar takes place inside a hangar bay of one of Helghan’s mining spires. This sniper friendly map gives players a lot of long sight lines and multiple paths to get to a destination.
The maps will soon be released to the community free of charge, and will be fully compatible with Killzone Shadow Fall’s custom warzone feature. Guerrilla is also working on a larger expansion, and should have details on that shortly.

I really wanted to like this game. The single player or multiplayer just never clicked with me. It is beautiful though. And you have to respect Guerrilla for adding free content like this. They did it for Mercenary's too.
Expect the season pass to be focused on the co-op mode! Everything else is supposed to be free.
This should be the norm. Stop charging for maps. They burned me with KZ3 though. Never Forget
Can't wait to play them. Shadow Falls mp is actually really fun imo. Don't get me wrong, its hardly the best, but far from the worst either. Plus them being free only makes them nicer. I'm so sick of paying $15 for map packs that could easily be sold at just $5.
Free, even better. This is why I love Guerrilla's work.
Love Killzone! Love FREE!
Awesome that they are free. I don't mind paying for more maps, but it would be nice if developers would throw us a bone once in a while.
This game should support Move controls and/or Mouse+Keyboard. The Move was implemented perfectly in Killzone 3, though not with the default controls. You have to turn off the Aim assist, turn the Deadzone down to 0 or 10%, set the Turn Speed to 100%, and set the cursor sensitivity to 25% or less. This is the best way to mimic M+K-style gameplay with a controller.
I played the free multiplayer of this game a few weekends ago and couldn't get into it. However, I'd like to know if this game gets better the longer I play it, or was the free version just not an adequate showing of the game?
