Free Killzone Shadow Fall map ‘The Canyon’ launches today

New multiplayer stage adds ‘gravity wells’ into the mix

Today sees the arrival of ‘The Canyon’, the latest freely downloadable multiplayer map for Killzone Shadow Fall. Situated deep within one of the Petrusite fissures scarring planet Helghan, The Canyon is all that remains of the once-stately palatial quarters in the city of Pyrrhus.

Held in place by struts and bridges, this precariously balanced range of rock and crumbling infrastructure now serves a new purpose for the Helghast. Enormous mechanical pumps pierce the cityscape, syphoning the Petrusite that seeps up from the fissure to the surrounding mining spires.

The Canyon includes plenty of tight spaces for tense close-quarters combat, as well as more open areas that require quick thinking and sharp shooting. Players preferring a stealthy approach will want to use the narrow routes on the extremes of the map – just don’t get to close to the edge, because it’s a long way down!

Unique amongst all existing maps for Killzone Shadow Fall, The Canyon also introduces a new gameplay element to the multiplayer mix: gravity wells. Consisting of anomalous spaces where the planet’s gravity field is severely distorted, these wells allow players to ‘fall’ upwards to quickly reach different areas.

We’re excited to hear what you think of this addition to Killzone Shadow Fall’s expanding multiplayer map lineup. As always, the map is available free of charge.

So, Killzone SF was briefly available to download for free yesterday. What was that all about?

the ps3 is more advanced because we can play our own mp3 music in the ps3 killzone games. thats why sony is losing money because you dont care to make sony better every day.

    What you’re stating is a PlayStation feature. Sony is in losing money in the PlayStation division. It’s Sony’s PC division that’s losing money. However, I would like to be able to listen to my music mp3 music on PS4

    Sorry, I said something wrong in my sentence from my last reply that wasn’t correct. Sony is not losing money in there PlayStation division but in their PC division.

    Playstation! Please let us edit our comments/replies on a blog post/this site

Awesome! Just got a PS4 and really loving the multiplayer on this. Smooth as silk and well balanced. Looking forward to some more season pass content for this also.

Do love that the maps are free though. One of the main reasons I didn’t get BF4 was due to second payment of a full game to get access to the multiplayer, at the risk of it being fractured and not very well populated within the map packs.
