Update 3.0 will bring a number of new things with it. 100 new pieces of gear will appear. There's 80 levels to play through, new and returning characters to meet, and new depths to the series' weird and wonderful lore. Titled the Octo Expansion, this paid DLC will task you controlling Agent 8 to travel throughout a subway underground and a odd testing facility.

Stages include Piranha Pit, Camp Triggerfish and Wahoo World, and a new Rank X will be included.

What's New in Splatoon 2 Update 3.0?

The Octo Expansion will bring a whole new campaign mode featuring Agent 8, and will bring playable Octolings to the main game, presumably once the DLC is completed.

On the competitive side of splatting a new rank is being created.

What's in the Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion?

It follows Agent 8, an amnesiac that looks like an Octoling who finds themself waking in a sprawling underground system. She'll hang out with Marie in the entry of Octo Canyon once certain conditions are met.

As stated above, beating the Octo Expansion will give you the ability to play as an octoling in multiplayer. Also, if you pre-order the add-on, you immediately get octo headgear and clothes for your inkling.

We've known about Octoling Girls and Boys since they were found in various Splatoon 2 datamines.
