If you’ve been having good old armless fun whilst playing NeverDead, but been aching for some new content, today is your lucky day. Konami has announced that the first DLC pack for NeverDead will be released on February 22nd.
The “NeverDead Expansion Pack Volume 1”, will expand the online element of the game, introducing a new playable character, three new challenges within the expanded Asylum level and two new online costumes for NeverDead’s immortal hero, Bryce Boltzmann.
“Who is this new character then?”, we hear you ask. Don’t worry, we have the answer here for you. The expansion pack will introduce you to the fashionable, charismatic pop-idol Nikki Summerfield. You’ll be able to play as her in the cooperative online challenges, as well as the three new challenges within the reworked Asylum stage, which include the following:
- Egg Hunt: Scour the expanded Asylum level for collectables scoring points by delivering them to designated ‘Score Zones’. Opponents will try to snatch any that you drop along the way, while enemy ambush points and environmental hazards at every turn up the ante.
- Fragile Alliance: A competitive race through a number of checkpoints spread across the map. Users can interrupt their rivals’ progress by attacking each other. This mode also sees the number of environmental hazards and enemy spawn points upped for additional challenge.
- Onslaught: Unlock the entire Asylum level section-by-section by defeating all enemies. Demon-seals that block off areas will dissipate as you defeat enemies from the previous area, providing more-controlled player movement and encounters.
We recently reviewed NeverDead and awarded it with a very solid 8/10. Did any of you guy pick it up? If so, be sure to let us know if you’ll be getting the DLC.
