New Army of Two DLC coming out next week

New content for Army of Two will be coming out next week for the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3. The Security and Strategy Corporation (SSC) Challenge DLC will contain a new challenge mode and new maps for the challenge mode. The SSC Challenge mode will be set for two teams of two where they will complete obstacle courses as fast as possible. Winners will be determined by who gets the most cash or who’s left standing at the end of the rounds.

I like the concept here as it is a very fresh idea. Instead of just kill, kill, kill, it’s now a foot race … with a side of killing. The video above will give you a much better idea of what to expect. 

No word on how many maps will be in the pack, but it’ll be out on both platforms next Thursday for $7.50 in America. The DLC will then make an appearance for European gamers but with a slight difference. It’ll be out at the same time as the American release for the 360 but the PS3 version looks to be coming out in May for the PS3. The DLC will cost €4.75 and £3.80 in Europe.

Anyone planning on getting it?
