Killzone: Shadow Fall Insurgent DLC Pack Announced

Those hungry for new Killzone: Shadow Fall multiplayer content will soon have their wish granted.  Today, Sony and Guerrilla Games have announced the Insurgent Pack, which adds a ton of new content to the game.

This expansion pack comes with a brand new class, trophies, new abilities, weapons and an Elite mode.  The new class is the Insurgent who has the Hack and Steal abilities. Initially, the Insurgent class spawns with only a pistol.  However, he can use the Steal ability to take weapons and abilities from downed players, and the Insurgent will keep these stolen goods even if he falls in combat.  The Hack ability allows the Insurgent to turn enemy turrets into friendly turrets.

The Scout, Support and Assault classes get three new abilities:

  • E-Pulse Emitter – deployable beacon that sends out an e-pulse making it harder for enemies to spawn turrets in the area
  • Tactical Echo Emitter – sends a tactical echo making the area hard to infiltrate by hidden enemy units
  • Guard drone – a stationary buddy drone

The classic M82 Assault Rifle, L512 SMG Pistol and Sta14 Rifle make their return.  The new single player Elite Mode will test the hardest of warriors.  In addition, new challenges and trophies will be there for players to unlock.

To tide players over, Guerrilla Games has released two brand new maps for free.  The Hangar and The Cruiser are available to download now from the PlayStation Store.  Neither map will cost you a penny.

The Insurgent Pack is out sometime in the near future and will cost $9.99, or you can purchase the Season Pass for $19.99 and get all of the Expansion Packs at a discounted price.
