I just love irony. Literally a matter of minutes ago I was sat here commending EA and their developers for their free DLC policies and support of their titles so far after the game's launch. Now I'm sat here reporting some new pricey DLC for a game that's not even been out a month. I suppose we can't have it our way all the time.

Nevertheless, EA are planning to release a whole array of weapon and upgrade packs on November 13th and some are even exclusive to the Xbox 360 [although the PS3 is getting some exclusive content as well].

The purpose of the weapon packs on first inspection wis to make your game that little bit easier and prettier, so if you're struggling and don't mind forking out some more money, then these might be for you. But otherwise ... I honestly can't see the point. The full list of available DLC is as follows:


The complete list of upgrade packs include:
• Astronaut Pack: Download the Astronaut Suit and Weapon Skin Pack, featuring an amazing Astronaut Suit and new skins for the Plasma Cutter, Pulse Rifle, and Ripper!
