Full details regarding Operation: Fallen Star expansion
Incognito game director Dylan Jobe has posted new details on the upcoming expansion pack for Warhawk, entitled Operation: Fallen Star, revealing the game's free Icarus Mk.1 Rocket pack and new level, Tau Crater.
According to Jobe, the Icarus Mk.1 rocket pack can be used with both of the new free game modes that they released with the v1.4 update, as well as in the new v1.5 update.
"Now the jetpack itself is big departure from the way we normally do vehicles and this was very, very intentional. With each of our Booster-Packs, we specifically look for mechanic changing ways to freshen-up the game — and Operation: Fallen Star is no exception," wrote Jobe.
As for the new level, Tau Crater, there will be 10 different layouts ranging from the full map to sectioned-off areas for close quarters battles.
"It’s a smoky, forested island that features lots of vertical elements to give players tons of cools places to use the jetpack; huge trees that you can fly up into and land on their branches, an enormous recovery crane with lots of trusses and platforms to fly around, and of course, the name sake, a truly gargantuan capital ship wreckage smashed into the ground forming, you guessed it, Tau Crater," wrote Jobe.
For more details, be sure to check out Jobe's full post on the Official PlayStation Blog. Warhawk Operation: Fallen Star will be released on August 28 for $7.99. Also, expect Sony to release a Booster Combo Pack soon which will include all three Warhawk expansions for $15.99.
