A Killzone: Shadow Fall blog, information has been recently updated about the attack drone named the OWL. Readers have been informed about what this piece of technology is, and what it is capable of.
The developers tell us exactly what this OWL is by stating, “The OWL is an advanced hovering attack drone used exclusively by the Shadow Marshals to give them all kinds of tactical abilities in the field. It attaches itself onto the Shadow Marshal’s suit until he gives it an order. When damaged, the OWL automatically returns and regenerates health until it receives an order again.”
The most interesting part is that this drone is controlled through the touchpad on the PS4. The developers tells us the modes that the user can access.
The blog shows that the, “Attack Mode orders the OWL to move to an area and attack anyone within range; alternatively, you can tell it to attack a single enemy directly.
“Zipline Mode gets the OWL to fire a zipline, allowing the Shadow Marshal to traverse incredibly quickly from point A to B.
“Stun Mode is similar to Attack Mode, but lets the OWL use up its energy to create an area-of-effect shock blast that turns off all nearby electronics and stuns humanoid enemies within range.
“Shield Mode creates an energy shield right in front of the Shadow Marshal, allowing bullets/projectiles to pass through from his POV but stopping bullets coming in from the other side.”
We haven’t been hearing much about the capabilities of the PS4 controller touch-pad, so it was very interesting for the developers of Killzone to give us some insight of what this thing is able to do.
Will you be looking forward to this feature?
