Espire Ops offers the first full-fledged content drop for the game since its launch. Players will be able to delve into an extra 90 minutes of content, which consists of 13 highly-replayable short missions. Players can compete with each other on the leaderboards across the three new game modes. These ops also provide players with more narrative through their descriptions and follow three operations taking place between Espire 1 and the duration of Espire 2. The three new modes in Espire Ops consist of:
Sneaking Ops: Designed for players who love stealth, these four increasingly difficult missions require the player to get to the objective without raising any alarms.
Take Down Ops: The ultimate panther challenge. In these five ops, the player is required to pacify all guards in the area silently.
Elimination Ops: For players who enjoy action, these four ops allow players to go loud and will need to clear the area no matter the cost.
Today’s public matchmaking update for Espire 2 marks yet another significant milestone completed as part of Digital Lode and Tripwire Presents’ commitment to continued support, delivering notable improvements for the Espire 2 community in 2023 as outlined in the Espire 2 public roadmap.
