Dead Rising 2 DLC announced

Theme Packs add new weapons and abilities.

Four DLC Theme Packs for zombie smash-em-up Dead Rising 2 will be released over the course of the next month, Capcom's announced.

The four themes are insane psychopath, sleek ninja, crazy sports fanatic and kick-ass soldier.

The Psychopath Theme Pack will be the first to release: 12th October on XBLA and 13th October on PSN. The Soldier of Fortune pack will follow a week later, the Sports Theme Pack a week after that, and the Ninja Theme Pack a week after that. They'll cost 160 MS Points or £1.59 / €1.99.

Capcom's told us the DLC will be made available for the PC version of the game, but release dates are sketchy.

You'll be able to mix and match items from each pack. So, if you fancy it, you can wear the ninja shoes, sports fan hat, psycho jacket and Soldier of Fortune trousers. Snazzy.

The PlayStation Network and Xbox Live downloads include new skills, weapons and outfits for protagonist Chuck. Ninja Chuck, for example, will have a new stealth mode where zombies have to be much closer to him to detect his presence.

Dead Rising 2 is really very good. Simon Parkin awarded it 8/10 for Eurogamer. Screens showcasing the Theme Packs are below.
