Killzone Shadow Fall: New Multiplayer DLC and Maps

Samrat Sharma's Avatar + Posted by Samrat Sharma on Mar 05, 2014 // Senior Online Producer, Guerrilla Games

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

Killzone Shadow Fall: Insurgent Pack

The expansion pack is full of exciting new features for multiplayer including a brand new Character Class, 3 new abilities, 3 new weapons and 2 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 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.
    • 3 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.
    • 3 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
          3 lives, Hard difficulty, and the Shadowfall campaign to test your mettle.
      • New Online Collectibles Mode – 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
        • New Challenges and Trophies
            All this content comes with its own set of Challenges and Trophies to unlock. Trophy details will be released soon.

        The Insurgent Pack will be available on the 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 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.

        All of this sounds exciting but still on the fence? Or maybe you have some friends you’ve been trying to convince to give Shadow Fall a go? There’s a FREE multiplayer trial going on RIGHT NOW (ending March 11th) that’s the perfect way to check the game out, master the new free maps, and whet your appetite for the upcoming expansion. Best of all: PS Plus will NOT be required to participate in this free MP week!

        To sweeten the offer even more, Killzone Shadow Fall will be available at $39.99 through 3/11 at Amazon!

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

        This is totally bull**** sony! if anyone wants to know, PS4 IS REGION FREE BUT THE GAMES DLC IS NOT!!! Guerrilla is saying that if we have an acount that does not match with the game’s region the DLC wont work on PS4 due to sony’s policies!!!

        Im starting to regret buying a PS4, looking back at PS3 and realizing it really does everything, makes me wanna go back. Dont get me wrong, i love playstation and Sony, but this kind of things makes me mad! Hope you fix this Sony.

        To everyone whose have been having problems with any DLC: Do your copy (of the game) match your region? Because it seems that the DLC is region locked.

        My copy matches my region, I live in Taiwan, I bought it in Taiwan. I never had this kind of problem before. When I try to play the new map room it just says I need to download new maps, I press “square”, go to the store and it says the content is not yet available. I really can´t understand this situation since everybody is playing new maps now. I also search the game and maps in the store and nothing, it just shows the add ons that it usually shows..

        I am getting very disappointed.

        FaxininerosoTW, I’m having the same problem. I’m also in Taiwan, and I can’t download the maps. They’re no where to be found, and I’m wondering why. Is it a region thing or not? Do other players in Asia have the news maps? I’d like to know.

        N7rebel, I know that the store in Japan has the new maps, so it is not about Asia. I do not know why Guerrilla says it is a Sony problem and Sony does not say anything. I am really upset because. I love this game but it seems like they are trying to push people away of it.

        Cmon, erasing my comments wont solve the problem with the REGION LOCKED DLC! something must be done about this, i mean, how am i supposed to buy dlc in the future if it is region locked? and NO i wont make another account, because my main one has all the trophies i’ve earned.

        I still can’t download the maps, but I’ve managed to discover it definitely is a localized problem. I talked to a customer service rep in Taiwan, and he tried to access the content on his PS4. He wasn’t able to find the content either. It’s not in the store. I’ll keep working on it, though, and let you know what I find out.

        It is VERY EMBARRASING for Guerrilla and Sony that a few days later, we still cannot download it in Taiwan. What a shame. 2.5 million copies sold worldwide and just around 1300 players playing everyday. I like the game but it is obvious that the multiplayer is not very popular. For this reason Guerrilla should take special care of it and its players.

        Very disappointed.

        Well, no news on when the maps will be available to download in Taiwan. The Sony HK team sent me a message, and they seem to blame the publisher, but I can’t imagine why Guerrilla Games would with hold access to the maps for particular regions. What would be the point of that? What makes me really upset is how I bought the season pass, but it does me no good. I still can’t download the maps and they’re free! And I’m pretty sure I’ll also get the shaft when the rest of the content comes out in April.

        No news…..NO NEW MAPS YET. Thank you Guerrilla for your care and response (…..) The image of the company for me is so poor now. I am selling the game. I totally lost my interest after nobody playing on line , so bad matchmaking (2vs1 games or 7vs2….)….You had a great game and you ruined it. You Guerrilla should ask yourself why nobody wants to play the online of Killzone (ratio people playin/games sold is so ridiculous).

        Thank you again, see you never.

And good work on the new maps. I can’t wait to see what the other new additions will be like in April. Keep the content coming!

        Downloaded yesterday to my PS4.
        After the download is finished, the download says “Waiting for install”. When starting the game, the screen goes to “Updating the application”. Then goes back to the main menu. Then goes back again to “updating the application”, etc, etc, and it keeps looping forever.
        Downloaded several times, even uninstalled the whole game, but the issue is still there. If I erase the DLC, the games starts normally.
        HELP!!!

I want my solider to have different looks so I can feel a little more interesting and fresh, and your designer is amazing at his work. Thank you for bring us amazing Game. Keep it up and I’ll continue to support your game!
