Killzone SF getting co-op mode called Intercept next month

Guerrilla Games finally revealed what they were teasing a few days ago on Twitter. Killzone Shadow Fall will get a 4 player online co-op mode called “Intercept” next month. This mode will be sold on its own or with the season pass.

No word on a stand alone price for Intercept mode. Guerrilla describes the mode like this:

To succeed, you’ll need to keep Helghast interlopers at bay long enough to establish a Hacking Uplink and transmit the data. Thankfully, the members of your team have all been trained in unique Combat Roles — from close-quarters Assault and mid-to-long range Marksman roles to supportive Medic and Tactician roles.

To successfully fend off the enemy and transmit the intel back to HQ, teamwork is absolutely essential. Your Team Score indicates how close you are to establishing a Hacking Uplink; increase it by defending your Uplinks from Helghast capture attempts, or by “banking” the Personal Score you’ve accumulated from kills, ability uses, and recaptures. You can even earn bonuses such as artillery strikes and jetpacks!

Its good to see Guerrilla adding notable features and modes to Shadow Fall 6-8 months after release. Of course when they announce their next project at E3 I’m sure their fans will shift their attention to that game.

Still, Shadow Fall has a loyal albeit small online community and I’m sure all of them (including myself) appreciate this co-op mode.
