Intercept, a new DLC (downloadable content) for Killzone: Shadow Fall, will be available on June 25th and will add a brand new, four-player online co-op mode to the game, Guerrilla Games announced. Killzone Shadow Fall Intercept places you and up to three of your friends on the elite VSA team known as Intelligence Squad Alpha. Operating behind enemy lines, your team is on a mission to intercept and relay Helghast military transmissions back to VSA headquarters.
To succeed, you will need to keep Helghast interlopers at bay long enough to establish a Hacking Uplink and transmit the data. Thankfully, the members of your team have all been trained in unique Combat Roles - from close-quarters Assault and mid-to-long range Marksman roles to supportive Medic and Tactician roles.
To successfully fend off the enemy and transmit the intel back to HQ, teamwork is absolutely essential. Your Team Score indicates how close you are to establishing a Hacking Uplink; increase it by defending your Uplinks from Helghast capture attempts, or by "banking" the Personal Score you've accumulated from kills, ability uses, and recaptures. You can even earn bonuses such as artillery strikes and jetpacks.
If you lose an Uplink to the enemy or have to respawn after critical injury, your Team Score will incur a penalty. If all members of your team are dead and your Team Score is too low to allow respawning, the mission is a failure.
