There is quite a large haul of DLC that came out today, pretty much something for everyone. Well, let's get right down to it then!
Dragon Age 2 - The Exiled Prince is now available for 560MSP. However, you may want to hold off playing it, as the achievements are still not uploaded to xbox.com, and will not unlock properly or add to your gamerscore. This isn't one of the biggest DLC annoyances we've had, as you can simply work on playing the main campaign until the issue is resolved since the game just came out today in the US. If you simply can't wait, you will need to recover your Gamertag and reunlock any of the achievements once they are posted.
"Sworn to the priesthood as a boy, the noble archer Sebastian Vael is thrust back into the viper's nest of princely politics when his family is brutally murdered, leaving him as the sole surviving heir. Adventure together through three new missions as you choose to either avenge Sebastian's murdered family and reclaim his title or direct his holy vengeance on your enemies in Kirkwall. Purchase The Exiled Prince today to employ this full Dragon Age II follower's unshakable loyalty and excellent aim."
"After the fall of the Borgias in Rome, Leonardo Da Vinci is kidnapped by an underground cult dedicated to transforming mankind. Ezio will embark on a relentless quest to recover stolen paintings in order to find Leo before it is too late, discovering two new locations and two new gameplay features along the way. The multiplayer addition is the biggest expansion to the award-winning multiplayer yet, including one new map, four new characters and two new game modes. The new multiplayer map, Alhambra, provides multileveled indoor and outdoor areas perfect for predators to lurk in the dense crowd for unsuspecting targets. The four new characters include the Dama Rossa, the Knight, the Marquis and the Pariah. In Escort mode, two teams of four players compete to protect their VIP target or assassinate the other team’s VIP target. In Assassinate mode six to eight players are pitted against each other deathmatch-style in one ten-minute round."
"Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit Porsche Unleashed Pack: The Porsche Unleashed Pack includes three very special Porsches, each one created to fulfil a very specific purpose – the power of the 1982 Porsche 911 Turbo, the speed of the 1988 Porsche 959, and the style of the 2011 Porsche 911 Speedster. It also includes ten new events to drive them in that will test your Racer and Cop abilities to the limit."
Lode Runner - Skill Expansion Pack is available now for 160MSP. The first of two content packs to cover the three achievements added a week ago, this contains only one new achievement. So far, no word on when the second pack will be released.
"Play and post scores on 8 new Hang On levels, and solve a slew of new master puzzles! Professional Lode Runners needed!"
"Not everyone wants to play as a Squaddie-two-shoes! Take control of Dr. Doom and his hefty minion Abomination and see their side of the story as they escape from the Helicarrier and steal the Infinity Stones from the Super Zero Squad! Featuring an all new story-driven level that reveals Dr. Doom's escape during the Helicarrier assault in the main storyline. Unlock these baddies for Freeplay and Challenge modes and earn new unlockables!"
Whew! What a day. Also take note of some non-achievement related stuff, like a new Mindjack map pack for 560MSP, a Modern Rock Mega Pack for Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock for 1320MSP (each song is also available individually for 160MSP), as well as quite a few new scenes for YooStar 2 (single scenes at 160MSP each and a pack for 560MSP), and be warned that ilomilo's Autumn Tale will be available tomorrow for 400MSP with three new achievements of its own.
