Dead Rising 2 DLC to Add Costumes and Benefits

Dead Rising 2 is barely a week old, and Capcom has just announced four downloadable content packs to be released over the next month. Senior producer Josh Bridge gave the word on the PlayStation.Blog. Each pack will include one costume and a passive benefit.

The Psychopath Pack (due Oct 12) gives Chuck a horror outfit, and boosts his damage when using weapons like chainsaws, machetes, and axes. The Soldier of Fortune (Oct 19) looks like an action star and boosts firearm damage. Sports Fan (Oct 26) gives a bonus to damage with "sporty" weapons like the baseball bat, and makes Chuck more lucky when he gambles. Finally, the Ninja (Nov 2) makes Chuck nearly invisible to zombies, and enhances sword and thrown weapon damage. No price was mentioned.

The choice of venue for the announcement raises questions. Bridge doesn’t call the packs exclusive, but Capcom did choose to make the announcement on the PlayStation.Blog, and we didn’t see mention of Dead Rising 2 content on the recent Xbox update. As a result, it’s hard to tell if the content will be coming to the Xbox 360 later or even at all, after some PS3 fans felt slighted by Case Zero. As soon as we know whether the content is coming to the 360, you’ll know.

UPDATE - these packs appear to have quietly hit both the PlayStation Network and Xbox 360 already, for free. The content descriptions, however, show that these are preparation pieces of DLC, allowing users to continue to play co-op with those who purchase the content when it is made available. None of the currently available packs allows users to access the actual content. Capcom has confirmed that the content will hit the two platforms simultaneously.
