The first DLC for Left 4 Dead 2, The Passing, will be out tomorrow for both the PC and Xbox 360. The content includes a number of new features including:
A new 3 map campaign which takes place between “Dead Center” and “Dark Carnival”. In the campaign the cast meets up with the survivors from the original Left 4 Dead.
A new uncommon infected, the “Fallen Survivor”, that drops usable items when killed.
Two new weapons, the M60 (which cannot be reloaded) and a golf club melee weapon.
A new co-operative challenge mode
Support for infected bots in Versus mode (awesome).
A new game mode, “Mutations” which changes on a weekly basis. Some examples of the rotating game modes include “Realism Versus” mode or “Chainsaw Massacre” where each player is given a chainsaw with limited fuel.
The DLC will run 560 Microsoft points ($7.00) for the Xbox 360. It’s free for PC users.
Bioware will be releasing more DLC for Mass Effect 2, featuring the Hammerhead, a vehicle that hovers over the battlefield and shoots stuff. The Firewalker pack features five new missions and all original owners of Mass Effect 2 (or, all those with access to the Cerberus Network) will be able to download the content at no charge.
Download the Firewalker pack and gain access to 5 new missions featuring the Hammerhead. The Hammerhead is a heavy assault vehicle that hovers over the battlefield at up to 120 kilometers per hour and features a guided missile system ensuring accuracy even during aggressive maneuvering. Coming late March, free to all Cerberus Network members!
The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, the third DLC for Borderlands will be out tomorrow for the XBLA (for 800 Microsoft points). It will be available Thursday on PSN and PC ($9.99). The DLC raises the level cap to 61, adds in a whole bunch of new weapons, almost 30 new enemy types, and improved enemy AI. It’s a pretty big update, coming in at almost twice the size of previous DLC, The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned.
Resident Evil 5’s first downloadable episode “Lost in Nightmares” is now available for both Xbox Live and the Playstation Network. The DLC features Chris and Jill tracking down the location of Umbrella founder Ozwell E. Spencer’s mansion. Also, downloading “Lost in Nightmares” will unlock Excella Gionne and Barry Burton as playable characters in THE Mercenaries Reunion. Totally intense.
Capcom has released clips of two new costumes from Resident Evil 5 Mercenaries Reunion. Seems like a bad idea to be fighting zombies dressed up as naughty Red Riding Hood, but what do I know? Nothing, that’s what.
Chris (warrior) and Sheva (folklore) are the first two out of eight new characters revealed as playable in THE MERCINARIES REUNION. Each with their own unique weapon load-outs, these new characters provide additional challenges as the player aims to shoot down as many enemies as they can within a limited time. Chain together your kills, extend your time and rack up points. Featuring the most extreme weapon selections, THE MERCINARIES REUNION mode provides hours of new strategy induced kill sprees.
