Castle Crashers
Caste Crashers Necromantic Pack Available Tomorrow
Written By

Gamers will soon be able to return to Castle Crashers and experience two new characters, the Necromancer and the Cult Minion, and two new weapons, the NG Skull Mace and a CHAINSAW! There is more content and possibly a picture pack as well (although no comment about avatar gear). Can anyone think of a better way to celebrate the one year birthday of arguably one of the best arcade titles available? 

The subscribers had a blast playing Castle Crashers in a tournament recently, and this additional content should motivate all of you to dive back in (or pick up the game for the first time if you haven't played it!) Additional bonus: the content is only 160 MSP and releases on Wednesday, August 26.

I have been waiting for this to come out since... well, since we were teased with the Chainsaw back in November! Microsoft better release this SOON.

I really dont think im going to go back to castle crashers becuse the games has become to repeative for me. Maybe if they release a new campaign i might play it again.

@3 They just updated it, dimwad. All it said before was that it was in Microsoft's hands for approval.

2 new characters and weapons is good but an expansion to the map would be better

Why won't they just release a campaign expansion and/or some new achievements?

It would be a good idea if they put it with the king pack for 300pts for people who didnt get it, still, going to be good though!

I'm not paying for this. Seriously, a year later and you release... a weapon pack? At the very least, they should raise the stats cap.

@ 10....THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU....they shoulda came out with a level/map/story expansion with a few new weapons and an elongation to an already good story like a spin off or prequel idk..they're creativeve..they coulda done it...i WISH they made a second CC =/ but i DO understand how it might be difficult if they tried to make a seqel or suttin seeing as all the princesses WERE saved....but not a bad idea for dlc or suttin rii?

Yeah the really need to make more achievements, they should add a new online battle/tournament that includes three achievements. The most an arcade game can have is (15 achievements) and (250 GS points) btw...

They should totally add a chieve for getting x amount of chainsaw kills. I'm sure dead rising 2 will. Gears 1 did.
You can never go wrong with chainsaw kills.

Yeah. More levels. That seems like a no-brainer.

@28 Wow, I didn't even notice that!

And now that I think of it... why haven't they added on to the story, or even to the multiplayer? Hopefully we can look forward to those kinds of expansions in the near future... but who really knows with the NG people?

2 weps, 2 new skinned avatars with move other chars have/ lame moves no one wants, and 1 freakin awesome pet. sounds like to me were paying for nothin but weapons that the golden sword will beat out, 2 chars(this will be fun though) and 1 pet, which until level 80+, won't replace girafee.
so ask yourselfs, is it really worth it?
i will say it's a nice blend of new content, but there is so much old, that this will quickly become just as old of content as the king pack.
i give it 2 weeks before it's pizaz wears completely off.
i'm also mad, cuss i had 210 points, and spend t 80 on a gears shirt >.

Castle Crashers can still be fun when you want a 2d nostalgia run...I got the other DLC to get rid of points, but I don't think I'd invest unless it added significant content. Guess we will find out tomorrow.

Caste Crashers :p

Ive been waiting for forever for this DLC, I even had 160 points saved for it, until I added that 160 to a leftover 400 to get See The Future.

I dont even know if I WANT it anymore!

Behemoth gave away free download codes for anyone who asked for the King pack a few weeks after it was released. Maybe the same will happen with the Necromancer pack?

This is my favorite X-Box Live Arcade game of all time. I was really hoping we would see a Castle Crashers 2 or DLC that added more areas to crash my way through.

Chainsaw? Who gives a fuck! I wanna see what the NG Mace looks like, I wonder if it's the same as the Mace Level Icon they use for Newgrounds...

And I'm suprised they're still making DLC for this, they've already announced Game #3, and they still have to run their whole site, that's a shitload of work, and then you guys are asking for an expansion? Give them a break, they're not a big company, just 20 or so guys.

But Avatar Awards would be pretty sweet, though they'd probably need to hire a 3d artist, since most of they're art is by Dan who is almost completely 2d only.
