Killzone: Shadow Fall preorder bonuses revealed

Customer who preorder PlayStation 4 launch title will receive Shadow Pack that contains in-game OWL skins and official soundtrack.

by

Sony and Guerrilla Games have announced the pre-order bonuses for PlayStation 4 launch title Killzone: Shadow Fall.

Players can pimp their OWL drone with exclusive colors if they order the new Killzone early.

Gamers who preorder from participating retailers will get the Shadow Pack bundle, which contains exclusive skins for the game's OWL drone, a multiplayer victory move for taunting enemies, and the official soundtrack. Sony will announce the list of retailers offering the preorder bonuses at a later date.

Killzone: Shadow Fall will be a launch title for the PS4. Sony's next-generation console will be released later in 2013.

So, in the future, when people choose to go all digital, we will get screwed out of ever being able to get any pre order bonus'?

A multiplayer victory move? Now this is what gaming is all about...teabagging the enemy's corpse.

well at least soundtrack and skins is better then giving bonus missions as pre-order exclusives. At least everyone gets the full game and has a choice of soundtrack and skins that are not very important.

From the amount of comments I see it looks like not too many people are interested in this one. I can understand why the earlier games have not been that great. KZ1 was terrible on the PS2. KZ2 had beautiful graphics, but clunky controllers and too much brown and grey. KZ3 played better and had a solid multiplayer, but it still lack that je ne c'est quoi.

Preordering it anyway with my PS4 so I'll take the soundtrack as a bonus.  The rest... meh.

Solid pre-order bonus right here. Not sure how much mp I will involve myself with but still a neat bonus. I like that they included the soundtrack and the OWL skins are cool. I'm hoping that I can do full graphic customization to the OWL.

Side Note: I bought the Helghast Edition of Killzone 3 and received the official soundtrack, however. The rest of the content in the Helghast Edition was really lame, and then it dropped in price a few months later.

The official soundtrack is a good pre-order incentive; although, they need to come up with something more productive than skins. Preferably some exclusive missions or multiplayer maps?

Other than this minor setback, Killzone: Shadow Fall looks solid.

Tempting... but i suck at shooters.

Good thing that is nothing that will gave players that pre-order advantages in MP. I hate those type of bonuses.

What if I pre-ordered the Killzone launch bundle a long time ago? Probably doesn't apply to me right.

You know you take games too seriously when you preorder a game for a skin, and you know you are absolutely crazy when you purchase a skin as DLC.

Killzone: Shadow fall will be my first ps4 game for sure so why not get the preorder bonus. My later games will be Infamous Second Son, The Order 1886 and if i'm not wrong Drive Club comes with the PNS+ subscription. So i'm all set!

It was very very recently I decided to get a PS4 this year. Was planning to wait until 2014 when all the games would have been out, but this means I will be taking full advantage of this preorder hohokum.

Wondering if existing pre-orders will this benefit ?, i'll have to make sure.

Mmm, soundtrack is tempting. Too bad it (probably) won't be on a CD. I love my game soundtrack CD collection. I just wish it was bigger =(

I love when the pre-order bonuses are trivial and doesn't effect the game especially the multiplayer mode, thank you GG

Remember when changing the look of your character used to be part of the game?


Coming soon: Moving Left DLC! For 2.99 gain the ability to move to make left turns!

@Raventhade No, exclusive missions and multiplayer maps make the game feel incomplete for those that didn't pre-order. They should have had gun skins as well.

@SpookyJack yeah that would be nice to have the regular campaign plus another one to play as the Helghast!!!

@ReginaldSpanke I remember when 'some' games did that.

'Some' still do.

DLC can be STUFF TO CHOOSE FROM, or it can simply be STUFF YOU DON'T BUY. But, either way it's still just "STUFF" you don't really need.

@ReginaldSpanke Idk what i pressed by now my shit is italicized. But yeah dude i remember when xbox live came out for the original xbox it would say "downloadable content" and that just meant FREE maps and stuff would be available months after the game was released.. Not only that but when xbox360 came out you would get like 2-3 map packs for free for games than an optional map pack for $5.. Now you have to pay $15 for DLC before a game is even released its absurd

@BrutalPandaX2 @Raventhade First of all, skins are nothing more than a pathetic attempt at making a little extra cash on the side.

Secondly, I beg to differ about the maps making the game feel incomplete. You do know that eventually the pre-order maps, and missions, become available to everyone. It just rewards the people who pre-ordered the maps to play earlier than the public. 

What do you get with the skins? A few flashy, and ugly, customization options that you'll use once in a blue moon.

@Rooten Indeed, with overlapping storylines. Could be interesting!

@ManatuBeard  I keep reading conflicting information about Drive Club and it bugs the crap out of me.

I've read you cannot customize the rides and I've read that you can customize the rides.

Make up your mind. Its like can you or can you not customize the rides. Sh!t like this drives me crazy. If I can't customize the rides I'm sticking with the dumb down PS+ version.

@KuchikiSentou @SteamyPotatoes Or we should get grand-fathered in for supporting their dumb asses (insert any company for their) like we did by pre-ordering the PS4 when there was absolutely no reason to.

IF that's the case, I'm cancelling my pre-order.

@Grenadeh Lol, what's it to me? I was just giving him a Stoical suggestion. You don't just preorder on impulse, or because everyone else is (which I'm sure you did).

One needs to be able to formulate her own opinions; "what game will I play if I get this on launch day?" "If there are just 3 good games at launch, is that going to be enough?"
