Killzone Shadow Fall: The Insurgent Pack DLC lands tomorrow

The first major multiplayer expansion for the PS4 FPS detailed in full

Not a joke! Not a hoax! Not an April Fool’s prank! Tomorrow sees the release of The Insurgent Pack, the first major multiplayer expansion pack for Killzone Shadow Fall. In addition to the new Insurgent character class, this pack adds a ton of exciting new content to the Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer experience.

Here’s a full breakdown of everything you’ll get with the Insurgent Pack:

The Insurgent

The Insurgent is a brand new multiplayer class with two unique abilities: Steal and Hack.

  • Steal ability: The Insurgent starts out with only a pistol, but his ‘Steal’ ability allows him to swipe weapons and abilities from downed enemies. The use of stolen abilities is limited, but the Insurgent can continue to use stolen weapons throughout the game – even if he falls in combat.
  • Hack ability: By using the ‘Hack’ ability, the Insurgent can change enemy ground automata into friendlies, swiftly turning the tide of battle.

Three new abilities

The Assault, Support and Scout classes receive additional abilities, which have been balanced against the existing counters and abilities:

  • E-Pulse Emitter: A deployable beacon for the Assault class that sends out an E-Pulse, making it difficult for enemy units to install automata in that area.
  • Tactical Echo Emitter: A deployable beacon for the Support class that sends out a Tactical Echo from a fixed location, making the area hard to infiltrate by hidden enemy units.
  • Guard Drone: A stationary buddy drone for the Scout class – deploy it in one place and it guards the location from a ground level.

Three new weapons

These classic Killzone weapons are added for the Scout, Assault and Support classes. When dropped, other players can use them as well.

  • M82: The legendary ISA assault rifle makes a triumphant return for the Support!
  • StA-14: A sturdy Helghast battle rifle for the long-range combat arsenal of the Scout.
  • LS12 SMG Pistol: Also known as the M66, this sidearm for the Assault packs considerable punch.

Two new game modes

  • Campaign Elite Mode: The nightmarish difficulty of the Elite Mode will test even the hardest of warriors. Can you beat Killzone Shadow Fall’s single player campaign on the hardest difficulty level with only three lives?
  • Multiplayer Collectibles Mode: Insurgent Pack owners can hunt for online collectible crates during matches to earn points and win in-game rewards!

Insurgent Personalisation Pack

To top it off, the Insurgent Pack comes with personalization content, including:

  • 3 Spotlight Moves: Humiliate your enemies with the Head Kick, the Finger Breaker and the C4.
  • 1 Voice Pack: New multiplayer battle chatter voices for both Helghast and VSA factions, designed to match the Insurgent character’s devious personality and style of play.
  • 1 OWL Skin: Inspired by the stealth bomber paint scheme, this will give your combat automata a sleek and stealthy appearance.

I only want the M82. Possible to only buy that?

 

Glad to see we’re starting to get season pass content, the latest patch is amazing and can’t wait to get my hands on the m82.

 

Excited!

 

Excited! Some new stuff to try out!

@kivi95 It’s only £7.99 for the whole lot. More value for money than any other map pack, and it’s hardly breaking the bank!

Quite nice, thanks GG!

My two biggest let downs for ps4 infamous ss and killzone sf, pity I tried so hard to like these games.

 
Voodoo341 1 April, 2014 @ 6:38 pm   8

Entirely agree with residentSteve. Killzone SF is a shockingly poor game! Any chance of an update to try and fix the numerous bugs and glitches in the single player game?

 

I love that little bleeping noise when you kill someone :D Just redone PS Plus today so will play KZ:SF online again because it was/is FUN :P
+ Shame there is no way GG can do a 4 player off-line split-screen mode with bots KZ :( KZ would be AMAZING like that(& if it had some of the old KZ PS2 & PS3 map levels with the brilliant PS4 KZ:SF levels to) it would be a THE BEST THING EVER :P Oh well, i will keep dreaming :D

Rubbish. They promised us a co-op mode and we get this trash? Multiplayer is DEAD. There are only about a thousand players bothering to log into it from the 2.1 million sales because it is so lame.

Only total fanbois are still playing this and those of us who bought the season pass when it was released just get useless multiplayer content instead of the co-op we were told would come in the first DLC.

Never ever going to buy another GG game after this disaster.

@RD_Rabin: Good riddance to you sir.

This is awesome, can you use retro weapons in campaign ?

Downloaded the patch nearly 24 hours ago, I guess I’ll be waiting until after work Friday before EU gets the ‘content’ on the store. PSN feels like a bit of a digital dinosaur to be honest, SCEE anyway.

Been looking forward to this for a while, it’s my day off today and I did the patch yesterday all ready…get to the store, where is it? No where. SORT IT OUT. I still have a friend whose unable to find the map pack on the store, this issue is becoming more and more noticeable as well.

 

@Jedidiah-Rose

Calm the hell down, nobody owes you anything.

The store is NEVER updated at this time, it’s always updated about 4-5PM GMT. GG don’t control when store updates go up, that is done by Sony (at the same time every week).

@Voodoo341 they fixed the bugs in single player if you read the patch notes before talking [deleted] you would know this

 
Mardolina 2 April, 2014 @ 2:38 pm   17

Cannot download the items – what the hell? I put them in download queue and then “Cannot download.” appears.

 
Porcupeth00 3 April, 2014 @ 12:22 am   18

@Mardolina

they’re already downloaded, that’s why it happens. Same thing happened to me. The DLC was already downloaded with the game’s patches.. just get into the game and everything will be there

 

Great content, looking forward to getting this and will probably now buy the season pass.
