Brink’s Agents of Change DLC Dated

Brother.

Brink’s ‘Agents of Change’ DLC has been dated. Xbox owners and Steam users can expect it on August 3rd, whilst the PS3 will be getting it on August 4th. It will be free for the first two weeks.

As well as a level cap increase (to 24), the DLC will include the following:

New Maps

  • Founders’ Tower – The revolution finally reaches the island’s iconic spire and takes the battle for the Ark to dizzying heights.
  • Labs – Venture into the depths of the Ark’s original research and development laboratories, a submerged high-tech facility so far untouched by the civil war.

New Player Abilities

  • UAV – This stealthy and lethal device allows Operatives to automatically mark nearby enemies on their radar. For more explosive fun, they can even take direct control of the UAV and detonate it near unsuspecting foes.
  • Napalm Grenade – Soldiers can use this new grenade to cover an area in a sea of deadly flames.
  • Pyro Mine – Engineers can plant these mines and leave enemies in the epicenter of a massive napalm explosion.
  • Field Regen Unit – Medics can deploy these units to increase the health regeneration of any nearby teammates.
  • Tactical Scanner – This universal ability allows players to reveal the active buffs of their opponents, allowing them to pick off enemies more strategically.

New Weapon Attachments

  • Bayonets – Gain the edge in melee combat and cause extra damage with these deadly blades.
  • Weapon Shields – Take cover from enemy fire and prevent headshot bonus damage behind riot-style shields.

New Character Outfits

  • The Sad Punk – Add a touch of Steampunk to your Resistance character.
  • The Limey – Bring order to the Ark with this outfit inspired by traditional European police.

        There’s a formula i often use to weigh this up:

        Yogdog + FPS = BEAST

        As long as i remember that, it reminds me to try & avoid him on the battlefield (or be on the same team preferably!)XD

      I assume yes as x360 version has new achievements.

    Unsure if the uav is a good edition, as no counter balance in place.
