Killzone: Shadow Fall Intercept expansion adds online co-op

Guerrilla Games has announced that Killzone: Shadow Fall Intercept, an expansion for Killzone: Shadow Fall, is set to launch this June, adding four-player co-op to the game.

In Intercept you an up to three friends will step into the shoes of an elite VSA team known as Intelligence Squad Alpha. Your team’s mission is to infiltrate enemy lines and intercept and relay Helghast military transmissions back to VSA headquarters. To succeed the team will need to establish a Hacking Uplink and transmit the data while holding off Helghast interlopers.

“To successfully fend off the enemy and transmit the intel back to HQ, teamwork is absolutely essential,” explained producer Poria Torkan. ”Your Team Score indicates how close you are to establishing a Hacking Uplink; increase it by defending your Uplinks from Helghast capture attempts, or by “banking” the Personal Score you’ve accumulated from kills, ability uses, and recaptures. You can even earn bonuses such as artillery strikes and jetpacks!

“Always be on your guard, though: if you lose an Uplink to the enemy or have to respawn after critical injury, your Team Score will incur a penalty. If all members of your team are dead and your Team Score is too low to allow respawning, the mission is a failure.

“Just like the members of Intelligence Squad Alpha, the AI-controlled Helghast enemies in Killzone Shadow Fall Intercept have their own sets of goals and Combat Roles. They will switch up tactics and angles of attack when they capture an Uplink, so you’ll need to adapt your defense strategy accordingly. On top of that, the enemy can call on special Helghast champions with unique abilities, based on key characters from the Shadow Fall single-player campaign.”

Intercept will ship with four arena maps based on locations from the single-player campaign, and will be available free for season pass holders.
