Microsoft lets Just Cause 2 DLC release date slip

2:00 PM on 04.03.2010 // Matthew Razak

Just Cause 2 has only just landed, but from the buzz around my Twitter I have discerned that it is indeed both fun and exciting. What makes things more fun and exciting? DLC of course! And according to an email Microsoft sent out yesterday we'll be getting more fun and excitment in DLC form on April 7.

The email listed things that we can expect from Xbox Live over the next few weeks and confirmed the not officially confirmed DLC as coming out. The DLC is called the 'Chevalier Ice Breaker,' and is described as a pimped out ice cream van by some text that was dug up in the PC demo of the game and revealed reported DLC (check it below).

No price point yet or official official confirmation, but we'd hazard a guess that this is going to happen. As our source notes this probably means that the PS3 will get the content on April 8. Whose up for big pimping in an ice cream truck?

Just Cause 2 DLC Coming April 7th Says Microsoft [PS3Trophies]

The full list that was taken from the PC demo of rumoured DLC items that are planned for the game are as follows (it also includes the pre-order items):

Pimped Rides Pre-order Pack
Bring on the chaos in Panau with a pimped up Ice Cream Van. Featuring a sturdy front ram, side skirts and greater top speed, you have the perfect tool for causing some serious fender-benders. Its extreme makeover also include a jingle to match. And if you’re in the mood for something even more destructive, why not try out a true weapon of mass destruction in the new and improved Tuk-Tuk. No longer the runt of the litter, this particular Tuk-Tuk houses a ridiculously oversized mounted weapon on the roof. Just the thing you need to wreak havoc in paradise!

Wild Rides DLC Pack
Unleash your inner beast with two truly powerful new vehicles. Get your kicks on the routes of Panau with this beautiful Chevalier Sauvage -69. Once this muscle car kicks into high gear, it will take a swarm of Panau's finest to put it to a halt. And if you are looking for a bit more bang for your buck, try out the new F-33 Dragonfly fighter jet. With quad-mounted miniguns and double missile launchers, this agile bird is the definite ruler of the skies, and packs a serious punch to land based targets as well.

Multi-Rocket Launcher DLC Weapon
Become the master of destruction with this fine addition to the Just Cause 2 arsenal. As the name implies, the Multi-Rocket Launcher is capable of firing a spread of rockets on your target, making it the most destructive weapon in Panau.

Signature Guns DLC Weapon
Get ready to truly fill Rico Rodriguez's shoes with the return of his classic signature guns, as seen in the original Just Cause. Don't miss this opportunity to hone your chaos-causing skills, using Rico's favourite tools of the trade.

Bull's Eye Assault Rifle
More powerful than the standard assault rifle, this lightweight and lethal automatic rifle features increased accuracy and a higher magnification scope.

Air Propulsion Gun
Courtesy of the Agency Propulsion Labs, this gun was originally designed as a jet engine but was soon repurposed for the weapons division where the Air Propulsion Gun was born.

Cluster Bomb Launcher
A natural progression of the grenade launcher, the Cluster Bomb Launcher is a small-scale weapon of mass destruction for personal use.

Rico's Signature Gun
Customised by the Agency and adapted for Rico’s shooting style, this deadly accurate and powerful pistol packs a punch with precision, power and flair.

Quad Rocket Launcher
Combine a rocket launcher with a shotgun and you've got yourself the powerful Quad Rocket Launcher - expect some collateral damage!

Multi-lock Missile Launcher
This highly sophisticated weapon of destruction allows you to lock up to four targets and unleash a barrage of homing missiles to take care of all your troubles.

Tuk Tuk Boom Boom
Try out a true weapon of mass destruction in the new and improved Tuk Tuk. No longer the runt of the litter, this particular Tuk Tuk features a ridiculously oversized mounted weapon on the roof. Just the thing you need to wreak havoc in paradise!

Chevalier Ice Breaker
Bring on the chaos in Panau with a pimped-up Ice Cream Van. Featuring a sturdy front ram, side skirts and greater top speed, you have the perfect tool for causing some serious fender-benders. This extreme makeover also includes a jingle to match.

F-33 DragonFly Jet Fighter
Try out the new F-33 Dragonfly fighter jet. With quad-mounted miniguns and double missile launchers, this agile bird is the definite ruler of the skies, and packs a serious punch to land based targets as well.

Chevalier Classic
No agent should be without a hot set of wheels and with an increased top speed and superior handling, you can arrive at your destination in style or make a guaranteed quick getaway.

Agency Hovercraft
The ultimate in amphibious transport, the Agency Hovercraft is the most flexible form of transport in the game. Steered by a thrust-based engine for smooth and agile movement, the vehicle is as comfortable on land as off. Equipped with a turret-mounted autocannon, you’re guaranteed to blow your opposition out of the water.

Monster Truck
The usefulness of an oversized monster truck when destabilizing small countries is clearly evident.

Dual Parachute Thrusters
Take to the air for longer! The Dual Parachute Thrusters when mounted to the parachute rig provides bursts of forward momentum to extend airtime.

Dare Devil Parachute
Perform your ultimate stunts in style with this Dare Devil Parachute.

Chaos Parachute
Featuring a skull motif, make an entrance no one will forget ... should you leave anyone alive to remember.

Camo Parachute
Designed for covert operations this camo parachute will make it much harder to trace your movements across Panau.

Tiger Parachute
Take to the air in style with this tiger stripe parachute.

Firestorm Parachute
Avoid enemy heat with his hot Firestorm Parachute.

Scorpion Parachute
Rico's trademark 'Scorpion' comes to life in this bespoke parachute.

Rico's Standard Parachute
Rico's original parachute for those that would like to return to basics.

At first I thought it would be fun. Then more ideas came, so I kept adding. More! More! But soon it just became stubbornness. Now, as I stare at 10000 words of meandering loon about a subject I'd almost rather be porn, I must question all my life choices.

Anyone remember the cartoon "Freakazoid"? I'm doing artwork for a box for work to hold my supplies, but I cant remember some of the better characters. Freakazoid, Steph, Cosgrove, Candlejack, the Lobe, Caveguy... but who else?

Sorting out a bunch of university stuff and going through a bit of writers block. I'm also holding some of my best stuff back for freelancing purposes (uni ain't cheap!), so sorry if my blogs have been a bit lackluster lately. And will be for 4-ish weeks.
