has announced that Ghost Recon Future Soldier: Khyber Strike PS3 DLC is available beginning today.
To quote: I'm happy to announce that Khyber Strike is out today. This third downloadable content package for Ghost Recon Future Soldier features a new adversarial game type, three new multiplayer maps, a new Guerrilla Mode co-op map, new achievements, and an increased level cap.
Here's a quick recap of what's up for grabs:
A new adversarial game type
Our new game type is called Takeover and it's playable on all 16 multiplayer maps. Similar to a classic Team Death Match, score points for your team by eliminating enemies.
Tip the scales by taking control of the objective and earn a score multiplier to your team. Defend your team's objective to prevent the enemy from gaining the same advantage.
Choose to split your team to defend and attack at the same time, or move as a group and overwhelm your enemy. When the mission ends, the team with highest score wins.
Three new multiplayer maps
• Switchback is a mix of open air markets and claustrophobic alleys divided by a busy street set in the old section of Peshawar. The twists and turns of the alleyways turn every corner into a close-quarters deathtrap, while constant elevation changes provide opportunities to gain the high ground while flanking your enemy.
• Palace provides a beautiful and luxurious setting in the Middle East with gardens, shady courtyards and ornate fountains as the centerpiece of the map.
• Transit is an urban Moscow subway station lined with shops, restaurants and large atriums lit with bright skylights. Trains pulling into and out of the station add to the danger as Ghosts and Bodark slug it out underground.
A new Guerrilla Mode map
A peaceful country village finds itself transformed into a battleground, as fighting rages around its central bus station. Long alleyways that run between war-damaged buildings make a perfect hunting ground for snipers, and a shootout near the town's gas station could turn explosive. Play the Village map alone, split-screen, on LAN, or over the Internet with your friends.
• New Trophies
• Level Cap increase of +10.
We hope that you enjoy the Khyber Strike DLC! Feel free to ask any questions below. See you on the battlefield!
