THE FINALS Gets New Map, Weapons & Gadgets in Season 2

Coming really soon.

Embark Studios has announced Season 2 of its hit multiplayer shooter THE FINALS, promising exciting new features that will arrive on March 14.

"The game show has been compromised by the rogue hacking collective CNS, and showrunners are scrambling to decipher their cryptic messages — but one thing is clear: the show must go on!"

Season 2 comes with a new map called SYS$HORIZON, a 5v5 game mode Power Shift, fresh weapons for each class, a revamped skill-based League System, rewarded weekly career progression, private matches, and the Hacker Playstyle, which lets you become CNS, with new gadgets and a specialization.

Here's what's to come:

  • The Dematerializer for Mediums: a specialization that temporarily erases physical surfaces, like walls, ceilings, or goo — allowing contestants to see, shoot, and pass through them. Create new passageways and close them back up again —turn every obstacle into an open door.
  • The Anti-Gravity Cube for Heavys: a deployable cube that manipulates gravity in its immediate area, lifting contestants and objects upwards! Is it a traversal tool? Or a defensive gadget? It’s up to each contestant!
  • The Gateway for Lights: a pair of limited-range deployable portals! When both are thrown and activated, contestants and objects can move between the two locations. Anyone can use a portal, but players can’t see or shoot through them! Perfect for a quick getaway, when things get hairy.
  • The Data Reshaper for Mediums: a gadget that changes enemy fortifications (or any random objects for that matter) into something else entirely — like turning an enemy mine into a chair. Or an enemy turret into a table. Great for breaking through enemy defenses!

The Lights are getting the 93R burst-fire machine pistol, Mediums – the new FAMAS burst assault rifle, and Heavys will find themselves wielding the new KS-23 slug shotgun.

You can check the weapons out on the SYS$HORIZON arena with its glitchy, neon-filled cityscape. "Voxel bridges create pathways between buildings, and pieces of floating, glitched geometry allow contestants to parkour through the arena. Partially loaded and out-of-place, SYS$HORIZON is a sight to behold, especially at night."

Moreover, the Power Shift game mode (think Overwatch's escort maps) where two teams help a platform get through the arena. What makes it different from Overwatch is that the platform will "tear through anything in its path and can be rocked by physics."

Moving on, there is also an overhauled League System and a new Career Circuit system with weekly rewards.

THE FINALS is a slightly unusual take on co-op shooters where you try to get money in any way possible, which has found popularity among players, attracting 7.5 million people during its beta alone.
