Killzone Shadow Fall – first multiplayer expansion pack revealed
Plus, free multiplayer maps also detailed

We are very excited to announce the details of Killzone Shadow Fall’s first multiplayer expansion: The Insurgent Pack.

The expansion pack is full of exciting new features for multiplayer including a brand new Character Class, three new abilities, three new weapons and two new game modes.

The Helghast government has been secretly funding The Black Hand, the operatives of which have been infiltrating Vekta City. The VSA has also started a programme that sends saboteurs disguised as refugees to the Helghast side of the wall. These insurgents are playable for the first time in the brand new Insurgent Expansion, which includes:

  • The Insurgent – a brand new class with two unique abilities: Hack and Steal.
    • The insurgent 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 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.
  • Three new abilities – The Scout, Support and Assault also get additional abilities
    • E-Pulse emitter – a deployable beacon that sends out an e-pulse making it difficult for enemy units to install automata in that area
    • Tactical Echo emitter – a deployable beacon that send out a Tactical Echo from a fixed location making the area hard to infiltrate by hidden enemy units
    • Guard Drone – The Assault gets a stationary Buddy drone; deploy it in one place and it guards the location from a ground level.
  • Three new weapons – Welcome old friends and new with this pack of weapons for the Scout, Assault and Support:
    • M82 – the classic assault rifle of choice from Killzone 2 and 3 is back!
    • L512 SMG Pistol – this amazing machine pistol makes your tactical secondary weapon of choice that much more punch
    • Sta14 Rifle – The sniper rifle of many battles past adds to your long distance sniping arsenal.
  • New single player Elite Mode – The nightmarish difficulty of Elite Mode will test the hardest of warriors
    • Three lives, Hard difficulty, and the Shadowfall campaign to test your mettle.
  • New online collectibles – Find the online collectibles crates in game for rewards
    • 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.
  • Insurgent Personalisation Pack -
    • 1 OWL Skin
    • 3 Spotlight Moves
    • 1 voice-over pack containing HGH and VSA battle chatter voices
The Insurgent Pack will be available on PlayStation Store in April for €9.99. Of course, you get it for free with the Season Pass which gives you all the essential Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer DLC at the best value.

But don’t worry; we’ve got something to help you pass the time until The Insurgent Pack comes out. When we revealed MP at gamescom, we promised you that all of the DLC multiplayer maps for Killzone Shadow Fall would be free – and the first two are live now on PlayStation Store for you to download!

The first of these free map packs includes two very distinct maps inspired by key locations from the single-player campaign, and are also completely compatible with the game’s Custom Warzone feature. Check them out in these brand new trailers.


The Cruiser map is set in a decommissioned VSA cruiser full of narrow, labyrinthine passages and interconnected compartments. Perfect for close-to-mid-range combat, the key to owning this map is identifying and dominating its many choke points.


Then we have The Hangar which takes place in the hangar bay of one of Helghan’s vast and lofty mining spires. This wide-open map combines large exposed spaces, perfect for sniping, as well as alternative routes to seek out and secure for total domination.

If you still haven’t picked up your copy of Killzone Shadow Fall and want to check out these maps for yourself, don’t forget we’re running a free trial of the multiplayer right now until 11th March. No disc or PS Plus membership required!

We hope you enjoy the first of these free maps – keep an eye on PlayStation Blog for many more coming your way this year.

Hate to say but I`m still not seeing enough new stuff here to justify buying the season pass, looks a bit like the barrels scrapings of loose ends ideas they had, being bundled in an attempt to bulk out the dlc offerings.

:1thumbdown:How do you think I feel. Took a leap of faith here and got a season pass for what appears to be a load of digital tat.:x

Well lets hope they have something up their sleeves, when you look at what games like Borderlands 2 and Uncharted gave us, the dlc here is slim pickings and not really enough to persuade people to pick up the pass.
