Man, we don’t even have the game in South Africa yet and already there’s an announcement for DLC. Thanks a lot, capitalism. Fortunately it’s still quite a while away so don’t expect to be prompted to buy it the moment you put a copy of Bulletstorm in your console this weekend.
Remember EA’s â€œProject Ten Dollarâ€? It means all EA published games come with that once-off activation code that entitles the initial owner of the game to all sorts of free DLC. It’s back in Bulletstorm and will allow you to download six new Echo maps and the Quicksilver leash. It doesn’t, however, net you the aforementioned DLC. You want that, you’re going to have to pay for it you cheapskate.
The new DLC is called the Gun Sonata pack and it adds three Anarchy maps and two Echo mode maps. There are also two new enhancements to the Leash: the Flamingo and the Pulp. The whole shebang will set you back 800 MS Points or $9.99 / Â£7.99 (which means probably R75.00) on the PSN. The content will be available in our autumn.
And what about the DLC for PC? The official press release makes no mention of the PC platform at all. However, Bulletstorm on the PC does use Games For Windows Live so it’s possible that the DLC will be made available through that. However, the same could have been said for BioShock 2, which also used GFWL and PC gamers are still waiting for that DLC.
