Multiplayer map pack for THQ's squad-based shooter now available for download; three maps for $6.25.
THQ's The Outfit for the Xbox 360 prided itself on the amount of destruction players could dish out in the game. Buildings, vehicles, and opponents could all be laid to waste, with little but rubble remaining on battlefields after intense multiplayer rumbles.
Today, THQ and developer Relic Entertainment are giving gamers three more maps to trash--the Collateral Damage map pack is now available for download from Xbox Live Marketplace. The bundle includes three maps--Luftwaffe Finale, Bleak Mile, and Eagle's Nest--and costs 500 Marketplace points ($6.25).
In The Outfit, gamers play as either the Axis or the Allies in World War II and try to secure strategic points. Through the Destruction on Demand feature, soldiers can order airdrops of weapons, vehicles, and even air strikes.
The Outfit was released in March, is rated M for Mature, and retails for $59.99. For more information on the game, read GameSpot's review.
I don't understand why anybody is upset with the XBOX Live! Marketplace for selling these additional maps. First of all, they're extremely cheap. You can barely get a good plus-sized burger meal for that price (at least where I live). But the most important point is that if you don't want them, . If you weren't hyped enough to buy or you got enough of it with the content on the disc, you're fine. If you were really loving the game and wanted more of it, well here you go...three new maps on the cheap. This is no different than when game makers release a game and then sell an expansion pack for 20-30 dollars six months later. It's just in smaller, bite-sized chunks on Marketplace. What makes me far more upset is when I buy a game after a price drop only for the publisher to release the "Gold" or "Game Of The Year" edition a week later. Now I'm stuck with the old version without all the additional maps and content....makes me wanna hurt somebody...
This game is the best game on the 360! It owns GRAW so bad, it ain't even funny! .... Actually...no, not really.
Yes, most people don't like it because they played the demo and thought (like I did at first) that the game was a Battlefield 1942 in 3rd person. But the game is much more than that. Destruction on Demand make The Outfit a unique game. I Have GRAW too, but I play the Outfit a lot more.
Great game, new maps good for me, i`ll keep on having fun. Sorry for the people who complain just because they don`t like it. (maybe because they don`get the idea how to play it)
Why do you guys complain, first of all The Outfit is a great game, only if you like tactical and stratagizing in a game, if you are looking for a first person or third person shooter, this isnt it. But it is a real fun game, I own it and I sold alot of it at my store. So don't complain about this game getting maps and others didnt, thq made these maps, not ubisoft, get on ubisofts ass and complain about g.r.a.w. maps. try www.ubisoft.com
Yay more content; too bad the game wasn't that good. I liked killing people with the flamethrower though.
Devilshelper666 Gah, this is why i don't like the marketplace. This is just so that companies can milk their games, and down the line, they'll leave more and more out so that they can get the gamers to buy the extras.
