Killzone Shadow Fall’s first multiplayer expansion called “The Insurgent Pack” introduce new weapons, abilities and game modes. What would an Insurgent Pack be without an addition of the insurgent character class, which features hack and steal abilities haha!
The insurgent class 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.
The Scout, Support and Assault are also receiving additional abilities.
The Support class new ability is called E-Pulse Emitter. It’s a deployable beacon that sends out an e-pulse making it difficult for enemy units to install automata in that area. The Scout will be receiving Tactical Echo Emitter which is a deployable beacon that send out a Tactical Echo from a fixed location making the area hard to infiltrate by hidden enemy units. Last but not least is the Assault class. Guard Drone is a stationary Buddy drone; deploy it in one place and it guards the location from a ground level.
One of weapons the pack offers is the M82. The classic assault rifle of choice from Killzone 2 and 3 that I freaking love! The L512 SMG Pistol is another, this amazing machine pistol makes your tactical secondary weapon of choice that much more punch. The final weapon is the Sta14 Rifle, another sniper rifle that you can choose from the scout’s arsenal. I am mostly excited about the M82 making a return to Killzone Shadow Fall’s multiplayer. I cannot wait to try it out.
Insurgent Pack owners will also receive a single-player “Elite Mode,” Giving them only three lives on the hardest difficulty in the Shadow Fall campaign. In addition to collectible crates that will spawn once per online match for a limited time. Collect one and earn extra points in game, collect more and stand to win rewards in game. All this content comes with its own set of Challenges and Trophies to unlock.
The Insurgent Pack will launch in April for $9.99. If you bought the season pass, this expansion pack will not cost you a dime! Sony announced that two of the free multiplayer maps for the game are now available to play on PSN. I know what I’ll be trying out in April. What do you guys think about the contents of the pack? Let us know your thoughts!
