Alienation update 1.04 and update 1.05 were released today, adding six new Trophies, Weekly Missions, a new Legend difficulty level, the ability to loot and collect armors with different modifiers, while also increasing the Hero Level cap and more. Developer Housemarque says the Weekly Missions are “missions to be played with unusual rules for an additional challenge – beat them within seven days and you’ll get a reward!”

In addition to the free content in the updates, more paid DLC was released today. Priced at $4.99, the Weapon Pack includes the secondary weapon Devastator (a deadly laser ray) and the heavy Collapser (a cannon with bounding projectiles). Then, the $4.99 Veteran Heroes pack allows you to start with characters at Level 15 and access World Level 15. Finally, the $0.99 Armor Paint Pack includes three exclusive armor paints. All of the items in the packs can be purchased separately, and Season Pass owners get access to everything for free.
