Arriving this summer is Splatoon 2‘s first serving of paid DLC: Octo Expansion, featuring a new campaign starring an Octoling going by Agent 8. Said Octoling is amnesiac, but engages in over 80 missions and a debuting cast of nautical characters in a new story. Upon completion of said campaign, Octolings will be rendered available for use in multiplayer. You can watch the trailer below:
Oh, and it’s not the only update coming to Splatoon 2: next month, Update 3.0 will launch and bring with it 100+ pieces of gear, the return of Piranha Pit and Camp Triggerfish, the new Wahoo World amusement park stage, and Rank X for Ranked Mode. Yes, Rank X is even higher than S+!
As a bonus, if you pre-purchase the DLC now, you can immediately utilize Octoling gear for battle. Certainly these fresh duds will tide you over until their arrival, eh?
