In the second of three planned posts, Killzone community editor Victor Zuylen detailed another of Shadow Fall‘s multiplayer classes: the Scout class.
Scouts favor stealth over the Assault class’ strength, relying on long-distance sniping and cloaking technology—though their cloak tech is restricted to combat knives only. Any other weapons will shed the cloak.
Like the Assault class, Scout players can choose from one of three secondary abilities: Tactical Echo, Emergency Teleport, and Stun Drone. Tactical Echo allows Scouts to use a radar pulse that highlights enemy soldiers and machines, including other Scouts who are cloaked. Emergency Transport help Scouts get out of jams by teleporting them to a random part of the map, though its use comes with a lengthy cooldown period. The last secondary ability for players to choose from is the Stun Drone, a flying combat drove that waits for enemies to come within close proximity, then detonates an E-Pulse that blinds and stuns them.
Zuylen promised details on Shadow Fall‘s third and final multiplayer class, the Support class, would be coming soon.
Killzone: Shadow Fall will be among the PlayStation 4’s launch lineup when the system releases on November 15 in North America, November 29 in Europe.
