Just Cause 2‘Black Market’ DLC announced

Two must-have add-on packs coming this spring

LONDON (23rd April, 2010) - Square Enix London Studios, a part of Square Enix Europe, today announced two new add-on packs for Just Cause 2™. Available this spring, the breakneck‘Black Market Aerial Pack’ and the explosive‘Black Market Boom Pack’ each contain three must-have Agency items for causing maximum chaos on the island of Panau.

Available from April 29th, the‘Black Market Aerial Pack’ is the ultimate accessory for airborne agents. Taking full advantage of Just Cause 2’s vertical gameplay, the pack is the perfect partner for aerial devastation, containing:

• F-33 Dragon Fly Jet Fighter: a versatile attack aircraft, equipped with twin missiles and quad-mounted mini-guns

• Multi-lock Missile Launcher: a devastating weapon of destruction featuring laser-guided auto-lock on up to four targets

• Parachute Dual Thrusters: twin parachute-mounted jets which transform Rico’s trademark parachute into one of the most nimble and powerful attack platforms.

Following on May 25th, the‘Black Market Boom Pack’ fills a gap in the market for the agent with little concern for collateral damage. With three experimental and highly volatile prototype weapons, the pack is the final word in wide-scale carnage, featuring:

• Quad Rocket Launcher: half shotgun, half rocket launcher, all carnage

• Cluster Bomb Launcher: the natural successor to the grenade launcher

• Air Propulsion Gun: a highly experimental jet-powered blast weapon, powerful enough to send vehicles and soldiers skywards.

As Rico Rodriguez, the Agency's most powerful weapon, players must take on the island of Panau and its military regime in order to track down Rico's former boss and mentor, Tom Sheldon, who has gone rogue with millions in Agency cash and intel. Using a unique grapple and parachute combination, there is no vertical limit as the air becomes your playground: grapple a passing plane in flight, hijack helicopters, BASE jump from the tallest buildings or mountains and leave a trail of chaos and destruction in your wake. Just Cause 2 offers players the freedom to tackle missions any way they choose and, with over 100 vehicles and countless upgrades and collectibles, the choices for relentless adrenaline-fuelled action are limitless.

Available for€1.99/$1.99 from the PlayStation?Store and Steam, and 160 MS Points from Xbox LIVE? Marketplace, the Just Cause 2‘Black Market Aerial Pack’ and the‘Black Market Boom Pack’ will be available from April 29th and May 26th respectively for the PlayStation?3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360? video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Games for Windows?.
