The 2013 FPS Battle: Does Killzone Beat BF4 And Ghosts?
Obviously, there's absolutely zero chance Killzone: Shadow Fall outsells either Battlefield 4 or Call of Duty: Ghosts. The latter two franchises are far more popular and of course, they're multiplatform.
But in terms of quality, do you think the PS4 exclusive will outstrip both heavyweight first-person shooter contenders this year? In the eyes of some, Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 were better than any CoD or Battlefield entry during the current generation, although many multiplayer aficionados will inevitably disagree. Multiplayer is the bread-and-butter mode for EA and Activision and while it's important for Killzone, developer Guerrilla Games has always focused quite heavily on the campaign.
Maybe it's more accurate to say the single-player portions of Killzone have been better than the competition, and the same may be true of Shadow Fall. But what if the multiplayer segment is just as good, if not better, than what we find in BF4 or Ghosts? At this point, that seems unlikely. The multiplayer reveal for this year's CoD has proven that multiplayer is once again a top priority for Infinity Ward. Thus far, all we've seen of Shadow Fall is footage from the campaign.
Do you think the new Killzone has what it takes to become the best overall shooter of the 2013?
