Resogun Update Out Today, Defenders DLC Arrives Next Week on PS4

February 11, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

It’s going to be a busy week for Resogun on PlayStation 4, with the free Challengers update today and the Defenders DLC next week on February 17 in North America and February 18 in Europe:

Challengers Update

Calling it the “largest content update to date for the game,” Challengers adds a new system of player levelling where you earn Challenge Points as a reward for completing new challenges and Feats across all game modes, with different rules and modifiers making the task even more difficult. Then, the higher you get your player level, the more rewards you unlock.

The Challengers update also brings the new Human Gallery to organize and select your collected Human types, Photo Mode, and new Trophies designed around the challenges and feats.

Defenders DLC

Priced at $4.99/€4.99/£3.99 or included free as part of the Season Pass, Defenders is the second expansion for Resogun, adding new content and acting as a “fitting send off” for the game.

Taking place during the last stand against the Sentient forces, Defenders puts you on an unknown planet, fighting the bad guys in two new modes:

Protector

  • Protector Mode sees you taking to the skies to defend one of the last human colonies remaining. Utilize all new power-ups including Super Boost, Teleport, and automatic city defences; take down the enemy and deliver as many of the last humans to each city in order to extend your grip on the planet. Protector Mode features an all new planet flip mechanic and environmental hazards such as volcanic meteors to avoid while fighting off the never-ending enemy invasion.

Commando

  • Commando mode lets you play as the Last Human who was left behind. Stranded on a distant planet with only a mini-gun to defend him he takes the fight directly to the Sentients in the ultimate arcade revenge mode. Jump, boost and equip your favorite bandana as you aim to defend your home from waves of enemies, volcanic meteors and more in this all new mode.
  • Includes co-op and competitive multiplayer modes.

You’ll also find new Trophies within Defenders.

When the Defenders DLC launches next week, the original Resogun is expected to be 33% off in North America and 35% off in Europe for two weeks.

More news on Humans and the original soundtrack for Season Pass holders is expected soon.

There was no word on when the PlayStation 3/PlayStation Vita versions of Resogun might see this content.

Are you going to be booting up Resogun next week?
