New N+ Content ComingN+ co-creator Mare Sheppard told IGN today that Metanet plans to release three downloadable expansion packs, each containing about 200 levels, in the months ahead. The first pack will likely contain some easier levels and some co-op multiplayer levels and could hit Xbox Live Marketplace as early as three weeks from now. The second and third packs would follow soon after.
"The other packs will probably contain harder levels, race and survival multiplayer, and some classic N levels from the original game -- were just not sure how the content will be distributed among the packs yet," Sheppard said.
Metanet is shooting for a price of 200 Microsoft Points per pack (US $2.50) or one point per level, and one of the packs will be free.
In addition to designing/porting the roughly 600 extra N+ levels, Sheppard said Metanet is hard at work on a potential title update for N+ that would enable level sharing. Although the N+ level editor, included with the game, allows players to create their own levels, the finished products arent distributable over Xbox Live.
There are also some other "secret goodies" in the works for the three sets of downloadable content, but Metanet isnt sharing that info just yet.
