The next Dirty Bomb update arrive son Wednesday. Called Containment War, it’s the largest single content drop the free-to-play shooter has received to date.

The centrepiece is probably Execution Mode, a single-life mode played over 12 rounds with the objective of defeating the enemy team or planting a bomb to destroy a containment shield.

Execution is played on the new Overground and Market maps, but a third new map is inbound for use with Objective and Stopwatch. It’s called Dome, and it’s “colossal”, apparently.

Stoker joins the ranks of available characters; they’re described as “a Molotov-wielding Mercenary equipped to resupply allies with a deployable ammo station”. Additionally anybody who plays Dirty Bomb between October 28 and November 4 will permanently unlock Phoenix, a recently-added medic, at no cost.

Finally, the update brings new limited-edition Containment War Loadout Cards and an all new profile page.

Nexon said developer Splash Damage has been adding content continuously since the open beta began. Additions include load-out card purchasing up to Bronze with in-game currency, matchmaking improvements and private matches, surrender & restart functionality, a report-a-player feature, a new anti-cheat system and more. Might be worth taking another look if you lapsed.
