Being called the “largest content update to date for the game,” the free Challengers update will finally release for Resogun on the PlayStation 4 today.
It adds a new system of leveling where players earn Challenge Points as rewards for completing new challenges and tasks spread across all game modes. As your Challenger level increases, so do the number and quality of rewards.
In addition to that, the update also brings the new Human Gallery to organize and select your collected Human types. There’s a new Photo Mode, and Trophies that are designed around the challenges and feats.
Later this week, Resogun will receive the Defenders DLC which is priced at $4.99/€4.99/£3.99 or included free as part of the Season Pass. The second expansion to the game will add new content and act as a “fitting send off” for the arcade title.
Players will be put on an unknown planet and given access to two new modes:
- Protector Mode sees you taking to the skies to defend one of the last human colonies remaining. Utilize all new power-ups including Super Boost, Teleport, and automatic city defences; take down the enemy and deliver as many of the last humans to each city in order to extend your grip on the planet. Protector Mode features an all new planet flip mechanic and environmental hazards such as volcanic meteors to avoid while fighting off the never-ending enemy invasion.
- Commando mode lets you play as the Last Human who was left behind. Stranded on a distant planet with only a mini-gun to defend him he takes the fight directly to the Sentients in the ultimate arcade revenge mode. Jump, boost and equip your favorite bandana as you aim to defend your home from waves of enemies, volcanic meteors and more in this all new mode.
- Includes co-op and competitive multiplayer modes.
Defenders DLC will release on February 17 in North America and February 18 in Europe. There was no word on when the PlayStation 3 and Vita versions of Resogun will see this content.[Source: US PS Blog, EU PS Blog]
