Killzone: Shadow Fall developer Guerrilla Games have confirmed on the official Killzone blog that the game will feature customizable weapons. In the first article for their new series named Guerrilla Armory the company details the changes that they have made to the Helghast standard rifle which is now the StA-55 which is succeeding the StA-52.
When asked about the differences between the two models Art Director and Firearms designer Roy Postma said:
“It’s still the same work horse of the Helghast, doing the same thing: a high fire rate with a big magazine in a nice, compact package. It’s the perfect all-round weapon if you don’t require high accuracy. So there are no new surprises on the weapon in terms of functionality.
The biggest functional change, and one that is not limited to the StA-55, is the reintroduction of attachments. We can switch out various sights and optics, secondary weapon attachments, grips, flashlights, silencers – you name it. This makes the StA-55 even more versatile, but it did require us to go over some functional and cosmetic changes to be able to make them all fit on the weapon in an appealing and functional manner.”
Finally we were treated to two screenshots for the new guns which can be found below. Killzone: Shadow Fall is set to release exclusively on the PlayStation 4
