The fist batch of dlc has been given a confirmed release date of April 30th. The map pack named Steel and Titaniumwill contain two brand new multiplayer maps with new gameplay elements and strategic twists. There has been no confirmed pricing in relation to the dlc as yet, but stay tuned!
Details from the US PlayStation Blog.
The first map in the pack is Wasteland Bullet, and the action will take place on the bullet train that and transports goods and troops between Pyrrhus and the Wasteland. The game is a frenzied firefight to wrestle control of the train from the enemy and into the hands of your faction. With the train moving at full speed, players will need to remain aware of the immediate environment as well as enemies – hitting an overhead obstacle at this speed will mean instant death.
The second map, Vekta Cruiser, will find ISA troops boarding a vast ship with the goal to repel a force of assaulting Helghast troops while also protecting the cruiser itself from heavy Helghan fire. The action takes place entirely indoors in a frantic and claustrophobic battle where attackers lurk around every corner.
