Killzone: Shadow Fall

The first Killzone: Shadow Fall multiplayer expansion, ‘The Insurgent Pack,’ will arrive on the PlayStation Store in April for $9.99, Guerrilla Games announced.

The add-on will include the new Insurgent character class, three new abilities, three new weapons, and two new game modes.

Find full details below, via the PlayStation Blog.

  • The Insurgent – a brand new class with two unique abilities: Hack and Steal.
      The insurgent starts with just a pistol and his wits about him. As vulnerable as he is, he can slowly build up his arsenal in the game by using [Steal] to steal weapons and abilities from downed enemies, which enables him to use those weapons throughout the game, even if he falls in combat. By Using [Hack] he can change enemy ground automata into friendlies, turning the tide of battle quite swiftly.
  • 3 New Abilities – The Scout, Support and Assault also get additional abilities
    • E-Pulse emitter – a deployable beacon that sends out an e-pulse making it difficult for enemy units to install automata in that area
    • Tactical Echo emitter – a deployable beacon that send out a Tactical Echo from a fixed location making the area hard to infiltrate by hidden enemy units
    • Guard Drone – The Assault gets a stationary Buddy drone; deploy it in one place and it guards the location from a ground level.
  • 3 New Weapons – Welcome old friends and new with this pack of weapons for the Scout, Assault and Support:
    • M82 – the classic assault rifle of choice from Killzone 2 and 3 is back!
    • L512 SMG Pistol – this amazing machine pistol makes your tactical secondary weapon of choice that much more punch
    • Sta14 Rifle – The sniper rifle of many battles past adds to your long distance sniping arsenal.
  • New Single Player Elite Mode – The nightmarish difficulty of Elite Mode will test the hardest of warriors
      3 lives, Hard difficulty, and the Shadowfall campaign to test your mettle.
  • New Online Collectibles Mode – Find the online collectibles crates in game for rewards
      A limited set of collectible crates will spawn only for Insurgent Expansion holders, one per match for a limited time. Collect one and earn extra points in game, collect more and stand to win rewards in game.
  • Insurgent Personalisation Pack –
    • 1 OWL Skin
    • 3 Spotlight Moves
    • 1 Voice Over pack containing HGH and VSA battle chatter voices
  • New Challenges and Trophies
