Intercept, a four-player co-operative expansion to Guerrilla Games’ PlayStation 4 shooter, Killzone Shadow Fall, is getting its own standalone release, hitting the PlayStation Store today.
The DLC offers four co-op maps, with additional free maps currently in the works, for $19.99. It was previously made available to Season Pass holders earlier this Summer. Being a standalone release, it means you don’t even need to own the original Killzone Shadow Fall game to enjoy the new co-op experiences.
Killzone Shadow Fall Intercept places you and up to three of your friends on the elite VSA team known as Intelligence Squad Alpha. Operating behind enemy lines, your team must relay intercepted military transmissions back to VSA headquarters through a set of captured Uplinks, while defending them from Helghast troops.
To keep the enemy at bay long enough to establish a secure connection, you will have to master your assigned Combat Role — Assault, Marksman, Medic or Tactician — and work together as a team. Your AI-controlled Helghast opponents have their own sets of goals and Combat Roles, and will switch up their tactics and angles of attack when they recapture an Uplink.
You can watch the launch trailer above and check out some new screens.
