Atomic Heart’s first DLC, Annihilation Instinct is now live

Posted by:Robert Collins

Atomic Heart’s first DLC, “Annihilation Instinct,” is now available as of August 2.

The first of four planned DLC packs for the Bioshock-inspired dystopian FPS, Annihilation Instinct adds new weapons, new enemies and more to the game. As for those new weapons, they are:

  • The Secateur: “a ranged weapon with 2 firing modes “
  • The Klusha: “a melee weapon that can slash and pierce!”

Players will explore a new area—the Mendeleev Complex—including its swampy environs as they discover new narrative content.

They’ll also get access to a new glove ability: Technostasis, which they will need to take on new shapeshifting enemies.

Embark on a new, mind-bending journey with the Atomic Heart: Annihilation Instinct DLC and discover the truth about NORA’s story as Major P-3 is pulled back into Facility 3826. Meet an enigmatic Professor Lebedev to figure out how to suppress the AI’s insanity and curb its Annihilation Instinct.
