Killzone Shadow Fall will be a launch title for the PlayStation 4 - currently scheduled for holiday 2013 - Sony Computer Entertainment and Guerrilla Games have announced.

"Today we are happy we can finally show you what we have been working on," explained Steven Ter Heide, senior producer.

"It has been an amazing journey for us so far, being offered the opportunity to be a launch title for the new PlayStation, and the subsequent mild panic to figure out how to best handle all of that. But being able to now share it with you is both a scary and proud moment. We are hoping you will like what we have created, and are happy to present you with the first glimpse of Killzone Shadow Fall."

Shadow Fall if set in a near future, 30 years after the events of Killzone 3. Two rival factions known as the Helghast and the Vektans live side by side in a futuristic city, divided by a vast wall. Tensions are high, and the cold war they are embroiled in is about to kick off.

You play as a Shadow Marshal, the most special of the special forces, tasked with maintaining the delicate balance.

A live demo was shown ast last night's PS4 reveal, but a shorter trailer can be seen below.

Look out for more information in the coming months.
