Killzone: Shadow Fall recently released a patch with several fixes and enhancements as has been usual, however in the patch notes it mentioned support for a new dlc map. While the developers have never officially commented on it it has been discovered that when loading up a match and looking at the game mode details, the new map can be found listed alongside the others, and will be called "The Canyon."
As with all dlc maps this should be free. No word yet on a release date.Read more >

For season pass owners the first of the non-free multiplayer expansion packs is still being worked on but no other details have yet been released.
