Crackdown 2
Crackdown 2 Avatar Awards Hint At Upcoming DLC
Written By
View author's profile

It's not even out yet, but there's already planned DLC firmly in the pipeline for Crackdown 2 in the shape of 'Toy Box' and 'Deluge'.

A quick glance at four of Crackdown 2's avatar awards reveal that these two packs are on the way, with Toy Box rewarding a green Agent suit for completing what sounds to us like the name of an achievement called 'Fly Swat' and a matching Green helmet award for simply purchasing the add-on.

Likewise, the Deluge pack awards a PvP suit for grabbing, again what could likely be the name of an achievement tagged '15 Minutes of Maim', while the matching PvP helmet is granted for buying the DLC pack.

There's currently no confirmed pricing or date for the DLC, but it can't be far off if the avatar awards are already visible.

Crackdown 2 is out tomorrow in North America and Friday, July 9th in the UK and Europe.

@6 think you can purchase DLC to prolong the life of the game and you can also get achievements+avatar awards+more Crackdown Awesomeness!!!

Really dont know what the appeal is for this game! so many better games out there. I feel i should still try it, since ilive in the city it was made. So i may, but think it will be a disappointment. Same as the first

Haven't they already said that one of the downloadable content packages would be a video replay feature that you can upload gameclips (like Halo 3)?

This DLC is just Keys to the City it seems. Hopefully it will be free or 400 points.

DLC is DLC it cannot be "on the disk" to what stupid rumour was created by that some idiots actually jump on the bandwagon to also think it's true, get to know the GI.

Anyway I find it also equally hilarious how people turn up their nose at Crackdown saying they don't see the appeal yet blindly play GTA thinking it's all the rage. Same goes to the reviewers as well, oh dear...

#26 While that is true, that is for IN-GAME only. Not an avatar award.

@Joygasmic Taco - When a company like 2K or Bandai-Namco can fit entire levels, characters and upgrades into less than 1MB, you get back to me on "it cannot be on the disc" regarding some DLC.

Not to mention, it's been confirmed that some DLC is on discs, by looking at the content ON the discs.

Likewise, some DLC for digital downloads (I dunno if on XBLA, but Megaman 9+10 and all the Final Fantasy games on WiiWare all have their DLC built into the original download, and you pay to unlock the 'dlc').

This is coming from logic. Why would DLC be on the disc if you need to download it?
