If you’ve been enjoying Killzone: Shadow Fall, we’re pleased to report that the new expansion pack has been announced.
The Insurgent Pack will bring a variety of new features to Shadow Fall’s multiplayer, as well as a personalization pack containing 1 OWL skin, 3 spotlight moves, and 1 voice over pack.
It includes a new character class, the Insurgent. This character begins with only a pistol, but his Steal ability allows him to claim both weapons and abilities from defeated enemies. His second ability is called Hack, with which he can hack into enemy automata and turn them to his side.
The Scout, Support, and Assault classes will also gain three new abilities: the E-Pulse emitter, which makes it harder for enemies to place automata in a particular area, the Tactical Echo emitter, which makes it harder for hidden enemies to sneak into a particular area, and the Guard Drone, which will guard ground-based areas.
Three new weapons will also be added: the M82 assault rifle from Killzone 2 and 3, the L512 SMG Pistol, and the Sta14 Rifle, a new sniper rifle.
With this expansion, you will be able to fight your way through Elite Mode difficulty in Single Player and gather collectibles in the online Collectibles Mode. And of course, there are new Challenges and Trophies.
If you have the Season Pass, you’ll be able to pick up the Insurgent Pack for free when it releases in April. Otherwise, you can buy it for $9.99 or €9.99.
While you wait for April to come, you can download the first two Shadow Fall DLC maps, the Cruiser and the Hangar, for free. And don’t forget that all players, regardless of whether you have PS+ or Killzone: Shadow Fall, can try out the multiplayer for free this week.
Finally, Amazon has Shadow Fall on sale for $39.99 until March 11, so if you like what you see, check it out.
