Guerrilla Games has detailed the first multiplayer expansion pack for Killzone: Shadow Fall called The Insurgent Pack. The pack will be released next month for €9.99 and be free for those with the game’s Season Pass.
The Insurgent Pack will feature a brand new character class, three new abilities, three new weapons and two new game modes.
The new class is called… the Insurgent and has two unique abilities: Hack and Steal. While he starts with just a pistol, players can steal weapons from downed enemies and then proceed to use them throughout the game. The stolen equipment will not be lost upon death. By using hack he can change enemy ground automata into friendlies, turning the tide of battle quite swiftly.
The first of the three new abilities is the E-Pulse emitter, a deployable beacon that sends out an e-pulse making it difficult for enemy units to install automata in that area. The second ability is the Tactical Echo emitter, which is also a deployable beacon but one which sends out a Tactical Echo from a fixed location making the area hard to infiltrate by hidden enemy units. The final ability is the Guard Drone which can be deployed in a single spot, from which it proceeds to guard the location from ground threats.
As for the weapons, players will be getting access to the M82, a classic assault rifle from the previous two Killzone titles, the L512 SMG Pistol, that packs quite a punch and the Sta14 Rifle, a deadly sniper rifle.
The Insurgent Pack will also add a new single player elite mode that will raise the game to nightmarish difficulty, giving players only three lives. In another mode, 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.
Lastly an accompanying Personalization Pack will feature an OWL Skin, Spotlight Moves and a voice-over pack containing HGH and VSA battle chatter voices.
