Update 1 (June 8): Rather than create a new news post each week when the next map pack/achievement is coming out, I will just bring this original news post back to the forefront and update it with the new information as a reminder for anyone interested. This week's map pack is out tomorrow and adds one more new achievement for another 10 gamerscore.
Original Article (May 29): Developer Hidden Path has announced four new DLC packs for Defense Grid, scheduled to release weekly in June. The first new achievement, for "Resurgence Map Pack 1," has been revealed via xbox.com and added to the site. Presumably there will be a new one for each map pack. All the packs will feature two new maps with a new campaign mission and challenge modes, for the low, low price of 80 MSP each!
Map Pack 1 - June 2
Service Interruption and Height of Confusion
Two new challenging Defense Grid environments are the first two released in the Resurgence series. An obstructed road to the core housing gives the aliens a significant advantage in Service Interruption. Choose your towers wisely! Height of Confusion has a wide open surface, making for endless possibilities! Build anywhere you want in your defense of the power cores!
Combat Turmoil 10
Earn a gold medal on the Campaign mode of Service Interruption and Height of Confusion.
Map Pack 2 - June 9
Risk Exposure and Roundabout
Don’t miss out on the next two Resurgence maps. Risk Exposure will allow you to discover your ability to defend two independent power core housings! Limited build spaces will test your skills as you divide your resources to discover optimal tower placement. On Roundabout, you will be faced with numerous possibilities for pathing and a variety of elevation changes. This one will have you going in circles to contain the alien menace!
Circular Hazard 10

Map Pack 3 - June 16
Urban Planning and Tactical Diversion
It’s the third of four great map packs in the Resurgence series. Urban Planning is a dense environment with restrictive build spaces, forcing difficult decisions against continuously attacking hordes. In Tactical Diversion, survey the small, snow covered platform and consider numerous possibilities. But be prepared for the aerial assault!
Map Pack 4 - June 23
Kill Zone and Outflow
The final installment of the Resurgence series includes two more environments sure to challenge your tactical planning. In Kill Zone, will you construct your defenses near the spiral road in, the spiral road out, or the open platform in the middle? Perhaps all three! But you’ll need to be on your toes to deter the invaders. Overflow has numerous connected platforms that will provide countless options to turn back the enemies. Will you be able to keep the cores safe?
