Even on the weekend, you can often find her perched in front of the computer browsing through Steam's new releases. Her current platform of choice is PC, but having grown up with Nintendo, she also has a soft spot for the Switch (especially thanks to its ever-expanding catalogue of indies).

The expansion features a new character named Octo and dozens of new locations to explore.

During yesterday’s Nintendo Direct event, it was announced that Splatoon 2 will be getting a DLC release called the Octo Expansion. This expansion is an exciting one, as it’s set to introduce a new single-player campaign to the game.

The campaign will feature a new Octoling named Agent 8, and will have players explore a variety of new locations. In fact, the new area in Splatoon 2 will reportedly feature 80 different test facility locations, all connected together by a large subway.

Other features coming via the Octo Expansion include the ability to use the new Octolings in online multiplayer matches. The Octo Expansion is priced at $19.99 and is currently available for pre-order.

Should you decide to pre-order, you’ll receive the pre-order exclusive Octo headgear and clothes. Or if you’d prefer to wait, the Octo Expansion will officially release sometime later this summer.

In addition to the new Octo Expansion, Nintendo announced the upcoming 3.0 update for Splatoon 2 scheduled to release in late April. The update will add new stages, over 100 pieces of new gear, and Rank X (a new rank higher than S+).
