Nexon's free-to-play FPS Dirty Bomb will receive new explosive content with the biggest update titled "Containment War" on this Wednesday. The update provides a wealth of new content, including a Molotov-wielding Mercenary equipped to resupply allies with a deployable ammo station, the all-new Execution mode and maps and the eagerly anticipated Dome map for Objective, Stopwatch and more:
More stuff is on the horizon, coming with limited-edition Containment War Loadout Cards to be collected and an updated profile page to show off your stats. As an added bonus, players who get in on the Dirty Bomb action between Wednesday, Oct. 28 and Wednesday, Nov. 4 will permanently unlock recently released medic Phoenix for free.
Execution Mode is introduced in the Containment War update and features two new maps, Overground and Market. In this single-life mode, players battle it out over twelve rounds with the objective of eliminating the enemy team or destroying a section of the massive ‘Containment Shield’ by planting a bomb.
The new content also includes the colossal Dome map for Objective and Stopwatch mode, and the addition of an all new Mercenary, Stoker, giving Dirty Bomb players the choice from among 17 Mercs to build out their squad. Some of the most recently added Mercs include Stoker, Phoenix, Phantom, Red Eye and Sparks, all with distinctive abilities.
Limited-edition event cards will be available, providing Containment War character and weapon skins.
While this update brings the most content to this date, a lot of new features and improvements have been added based on feedback from the community since launch.
"The love, the swearing, the passion, the rage... Dirty Bomb's Open Beta phase has been emotional. But it's this emotion from our players that tells us the fight for improvement is worth it, and why this is our biggest update yet," said Neil Alphonso, lead designer on Dirty Bomb. "We're grateful to everyone telling us what they love or what they’d like to see improved so far. In an expanding universe of team-based shooters, we’re committed to giving hardcore PC players something a bit different for years to come.”
