I know I’m in the vast minority here, but I really enjoyed Bethesda and Splash Damage’s class-based first-person shooter, Brink. Other gaming outlets, not so much. But love it or hate it, I think we can all get behind the notion of free downloadable content. It’s rare to see that in this day and age. So we should be applauding Splash Damage for taking that route with Brink come June.

Over at Bethesda’s official blog, developer Splash Damage has detailed the free upcoming “Agents of Change” DLC pack, which adds new maps, abilities, weapon attachments and character customization options. The DLC also raises the level cap to 24.

Below you can find the official rundown of everything the DLC brings with it.

New Maps

  • Founders’ Tower – The revolution finally reaches the island’s iconic spire and takes the battle for the Ark to dizzying heights.
  • Labs – Venture into the depths of the Ark’s original research and development laboratories, a submerged high-tech facility so far untouched by the civil war.

New Player Abilities

  • UAV – This stealthy and lethal device allows Operatives to automatically mark nearby enemies on their radar. For more explosive fun, they can even take direct control of the UAV and detonate it near unsuspecting foes.
  • Napalm Grenade – Soldiers can use this new grenade to cover an area in a sea of deadly flames.
  • Pyro Mine – Engineers can plant these mines and leave enemies in the epicenter of a massive napalm explosion.
  • Field Regen Unit – Medics can deploy these units to increase the health regeneration of any nearby teammates.
  • Tactical Scanner – This universal ability allows players to reveal the active buffs of their opponents, allowing them to pick off enemies more strategically.

New Weapon Attachments

  • Bayonets – Gain the edge in melee combat and cause extra damage with these deadly blades.
  • Weapon Shields – Take cover from enemy fire and prevent headshot bonus damage behind riot-style shields.

New Character Outfits

  • The Sad Punk – Add a touch of Steampunk to your Resistance character.
  • The Limey – Bring order to the Ark with this outfit inspired by traditional European police.
