Resogun: Defenders DLC arrives February 17, free update lands today

Resogun is releasing its next big expansion this coming Tuesday. While waiting for that, Resogun owners can also enjoy a new content update for no extra charge.


Housemarque first revealed the next Resogun expansion back in December. Now it has a release date. Resogun: Defenders will arrive this coming Tuesday, February 17. In the meantime, a free update for the PS4 twin-stick shooter will also arrive today.

Resogun: Challengers overhauls the twin-stick shooter's progression system, allowing players to earn Challenge Points for completing new challenges across various game modes. Those Challenge Points can then be used to further level up, while also offering up some bragging rights. While Challenges must be completed in a single playthrough, the new update will also add Feats, which take cumulative accomplishments into account. These will come alongside the Human Gallery and Photo Mode, which are both included at no extra charge.

As for Resogun: Defenders, the expansion is set to add two new game modes: Protector and Commando. The former will task players with protecting the last of the human colonies, using a new planet flip mechanic, new environmental hazards, and new power-ups. Meanwhile, Commando Mode puts players in the role of the human for the first time, who can only protect himself with a lone minigun.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
