There's two new maps out now for Killzone: Shadow Fall, and The Insurgents Pack, an expansion predominately focussed on the multiplayer side of the game, has been detailed.
The new paid-for content comes with a new character class, two new game modes, three new abilities, and three new weapons. Here's the details (via the PlayStation Blog):
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.
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.
