About Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion
Octo Expansion is an expansion pack to Splatoon 2, a game that debuted in July 2017. The developers from Nintendo created a story expansion that requires the basic version of the game to work.
In Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion, the players assume the role of a new Octoling character named Agent 8. At the beginning of the game, the protagonist wakes up on a metro station and he or she doesn’t remember the past. In order to discover what happened, the players must get to the surface of Inkopolis and complete 80 new missions. The majority of these missions take place in a mysterious underground building.
Other characters featured in the expansion pack include Pearl and Marina. What’s interesting, if the players are stuck at some point, the girls will enable them to skip the mission.
The gameplay in Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion is same as in the basic game. The title is a third-person shooter in which the weapons are shooting color paint. The characters can dive in that paint and thanks to that move faster and replenish ammunition. Although the expansion is focused on singleplayer mode, it also features a small bonus for fans of multiplayer. Octolink character (male and female) for the multiplayer mode is unlocked after completing the campaign.
